Choosing a cosmetic and plastic surgery center is often a new experience for patients. Dr. Widder discusses what to look for when choosing a plastic surgery center in Northern Virginia, D.C. and beyond.
Q: What are the important factors for potential patients to look for in a plastic surgery center?
Safety is always a #1 issue. So is the quality of the work done, of course? Plastic surgery has become more and more available, and that means there are a lot of options out there for patients. Researching the facility and the surgeon is incredibly important before choosing a date for any procedure.
Q: Can you list the main things someone should look for when making a plastic surgery decision?
Yes, there are definitely four main things to look for if you’re thinking of having plastic surgery:
- Will the surgery be done by a Board Certified plastic surgeon and anesthesiologist in an accredited surgery center?
- Can you find positive Testimonials from satisfied patients?
- Are you sure your Privacy will be respected?
- Are the Location and the business hours suitable for your needs?
I’ve offered plastic surgery in the DC Metro region for more than 25 years, so I have a sense of what patients are seeking and what is important for them before, during, and after a procedure.
Q: What more can you share about your practice in relation to each of these points?
My surgery center, Widder Cosmetic, and Plastic Surgery Center are accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities and I am certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Anesthesia is only given by our board-certified anesthesiologist who has specialized in this work for over 30 years. Our focus truly is on safety for the patient and the quality of the work.
People should realize that different surgeons use different methods and produce different results. Reviewing recent testimonials will give a potential patient a good sense of the surgeon’s work. At Widder Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery Center, we also offer a review of before and after pictures of previous clients. Potential clients can see the results we achieved for others who had a procedure similar to what they are considering so they can make an informed decision.
Patients’ privacy is paramount in my center. We even have a private waiting room. Larger surgery centers and hospitals don’t afford their patients that level of privacy and discretion.
Finally, Widder Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery Center is right in the heart of Tyson’s Corner in Northern Virginia. It is only 10 to 15 minutes from two major airports and is convenient to people in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area, Baltimore, and beyond. Our easy driving distance from many locations, indoor covered parking, and convenient hours make the center a good choice when looking for the right facility.
