Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) February 07, 2013
Dr. Jeffrey Kenkel, Professor and Vice-Chairman of the Department of Plastic Surgery at UT Southwestern Medical Center, has been selected by Texas Monthly Magazine as a Texas Superdoctor for plastic surgeons in their latest issue dedicated to outstanding physicians in Texas.
Texas Monthly Superdoctors are chosen in a "rigorous multi-step process designed to identify physicians who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement." This marks the 8th consecutive year in which Dr. Kenkel has been honored with the award.
Dr. Kenkel believes peer recognitions, such as Superdoctor, are useful to help patients discover doctors who are experts in their field.
“Patients should always do their research before choosing a plastic surgeon," says Dr. Kenkel, who urges patients to select a surgeon who is board-certified in plastic surgery and properly trained in the procedure or cosmetic treatment desired.
"There are many great new products and procedures out today. Unfortunately, what they often see on television or read in newspapers or online trivializes the surgery or misleads them," warns Dr. Kenkel who is frequently among the first physicians to study and evaluate the results such devices can give.
"Board-certified plastic surgeons are unique in that they are very highly trained to cover the full range of cosmetic and reconstructive options. Plastic surgeons can perform reconstructive surgery to restore form and function after an injury, for example. They are also experts in both non invasive and surgical cosmetic options for face and body." explains Dr. Kenkel. "Let your plastic surgeon be your guide.”
