The most important decision a patient can make in plastic surgery is who they chose as their surgeon.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) April 29, 2014
Dr. Rod J. Rohrich, Dallas plastic surgeon and Chairman of the Department of Plastic Surgery at UT Southwestern Medical Center, has been included on the prestigious list of Best Beauty Surgeons complied by Harper's Bazaar magazine. The issue, which lists only 24 of the top plastic surgeons in the United States, included Dr. Rohrich and noted his distinction for subtle and elegantly refining features.
Harper's Bazaar, which has delivered insight into the world of fashion and beauty since 1867, compiled the 24 top plastic surgeons in the Unites States for their April 2014 issue. Dr. Rohrich was one of only two Texas plastic surgeons listed.
"The most important decision a patient can make in plastic surgery is who they chose as their surgeon," says Dr. Rohrich who believes distinctions such as this can be a helpful resource for patients seeking the best plastic surgeons. "Always choose your surgeon wisely and carefully. Make sure he or she is board certified and has the expertise and the experience to deliver a satisfactory and safe outcome."
Dr. Rohrich, who is also the co-author of a new consumer book entitled "Navigate Your Beauty - Smart and Safe Plastic Surgery Solutions", has vigorously advocated careful surgeon selection throughout his career. He stresses what he calls the "3 Es": Expertise, Experience, and Exceptional results.
"Your surgeon should have the expertise, that is, be a recognized expert in the procedure and teach others how to perform it. He should be experienced, and perform the procedure regularly as one of the top procedures of his or her practice. Finally, the results should be consistent and exceptional," explains Dr. Rohrich.
