Interest in virtually all cosmetic procedures, from breast augmentation to gynecomastia surgery, is booming. That is because many people — particularly those who have minimal social obligations and may be working from home — are finding it convenient to schedule surgery.
The good news is that plastic surgery can be performed safely at this time if the right precautions are in place. Here are a few things to look for in a plastic surgeon and their clinic when seeking treatment during COVID-19.
Advanced Safety Protocols
First and foremost, you will want to find a plastic surgeon who has the highest standards of safety for their patients and staff. Brucato Plastic Surgery Center has adopted enhanced cleaning measures for our facility. We also take the temperature of patients and staff on arrival.
We are currently screening everyone for COVID-19 symptoms and risk factors. Additionally, we are limiting the number of patients in our office in accordance with social distancing guidelines.
Brucato Plastic Surgery Center will continue to monitor and follow governmental and regulatory guidelines. This includes guidelines from the CDC and the state and county departments of health.
Proper Surgical Environments
It is also important to choose a surgeon who operates in proper surgical facilities. Some surgical procedures can be performed on-site at Brucato Plastic Surgery Center for your convenience. Performing surgery on-site gives us complete control over sanitization and sterilization.
If your surgical procedure requires anesthesia, it will be performed at a nearby accredited surgical facility. Accredited surgical facilities are committed to meeting high patient safety standards. These facilities are inspected regularly in order to retain accreditation.
Now more than ever, it is crucial to visit a plastic surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. This certification shows that he or she is highly trained and is qualified to perform your procedure.
