New Jersey Plastic Surgeon Dr. Paul M. Parker Answers The Tough Questions You Need to Ask to Size Up Your Surgeon

New Jersey Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Paul M. Parker, Applauds an Increase in Patients’ Online Research

Dr. Parker reaffirms his dedication to his patients and their informed consent, encouraging plastic surgery education through reliable online resources. The Parker Center for Plastic Surgery, New Jersey, is committed to assuring patients have their questions answered, and that the patient is informed and comfortable with their surgery. The online proliferation of information has made patients more educated across the board and has created awareness of what procedures are likely best for them, including multiple procedures and newer procedures.

Paramus, NJ (PRWEB) April 29, 2008 — Paramus, New Jersey plastic surgeon, Dr. Paul Parker was encouraged by a recent story from Abby Ellin in The New York Times. Ms. Ellin’s article points out the distinct advantage patients have when they have done online research before the initial consultation with their plastic surgeon of choice.

Dr. Parker has found that when patients have educated themselves with internet research, they are more informed and capable of better decision making. “The online proliferation of information has made patients more educated across the board and has created awareness of what procedures are likely best for them, including multiple procedures and newer procedures” says Dr. Parker.

Education is key in selecting the proper surgical approach to correcting common patient problems.

In the past, with fewer options for patient education, women arrived at the Parker Center for Plastic Surgery, New Jersey, in need of considerable education. As online resources and even individual plastic surgery centers’ web sites, with rich media and information have proliferated, much of this education is done prior to arrival at the surgical center.

For instance, women who developed with smaller breasts, those who have lost breast volume because of significant weight loss or because of pregnancy, may be interested in breast augmentation alone. For others, whose breasts have not only lost volume, but sagged considerably, breast augmentation combined with a breast lift, referred to as augmentation mastopexy, could be more appropriate for their situation. These patients, having spent time learning the differences between these clinical situations and surgical solutions, are more educated than in years prior to the internet. When they then walk into the surgeon’s office for their consultation, their discussions with the surgeon will be much more valuable.

They actually credit online education with the increased likelihood a woman will be interested in obtaining an augmentation mastopexy. Dr. Parker states that the patient’s research done before the initial consultation is especially beneficial for those patients seeking multiple or combined procedures, such as augmentation mastopexy. “The more educated the patient, the more options can be discussed clearly without confusion, making the consultation more meaningful, he says.” This higher-level, more informational consultation allows for more detailed discussion and more informed consent.

Internet research is also a great benefit to introducing new procedures or new techniques of which patient’s may not be aware. Lipoabdominoplasty is a relatively new technique which has been of great interest to Dr. Parker and his patients. Though not covered in great detail by the traditional media outlets, lipoabdominoplasty has developed a rapidly growing presence on the internet. The Parker Center for Plastic Surgery uses the internet to inform the public that this technique is an option for state of the art body contouring.

Online research is a great tool for patients when considering plastic surgery. Dr. Parker and his team at the Parker Center for Plastic Surgery, New Jersey are committed to patients knowing which procedures are available to them and that the patient is informed and comfortable with their surgery.
