This week we’ll be featuring websites from Mignon Brewster, RN, MBA, manager of Via Christi Advanced Aesthetics & Plastic Surgery:
I have found that helpful patient information on cosmetic and reconstructive procedures can be found at http://www.plasticsurgery.org/. There are guidelines about how to choose a plastic surgeon you can trust as well as facts about the safety and risks of plastic surgery. You’ll also find a useful list of questions to ask your plastic surgeon during your consultation. A helpful glossary provides definitions for words that you need to know when discussing plastic surgery with your physician.
I also send patients to http://www.sciton.com/ for patient-friendly information about laser and light-based treatments. You’ll find testimonials, photo galleries and helpful procedural information.
