Breast Augmentation & Advantages of Plastic Surgery at Halifax Health

 “With any surgery there is always a risk. Anyone who is considering plastic surgery should factor this into his or her decision. A medical center is always safer than an out-patient setting. Also, we do more plastic surgery here than any other facility in our region, and the whole team has the experience to deal with any eventuality. This peace of mind – along with our understanding staff and terrific results – makes our Center a great choice for these procedures,” said Scott Loessin, MD, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. On September 29 at 7:00 pm EDT,  Halifax Health will present an ORLive webcast covering a wide range of popular cosmetic treatments and the advantages of having them done in a hospital setting. The webcast will feature a live breast implant surgery performed by Scott Loessin, MD and commentary from his colleagues Jeffrey DeMercurio, MD and William Palin, MD.  “Board certification is an important factor in selecting a plastic surgeon because it ensures that the physician has passed a rigorous set of criteria specifically focused on plastic surgery. Some surgeons may be board certified in other surgical fields but not necessarily have the same expertise and experience as we do here at Halifax Health,” said Dr. Palin, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Viewers will have the unique opportunity to watch a live breast implant case and to hear the physicians discuss several other areas of expertise at the center including facial rejuvenation treatments with dramatic before and after evidence. Dr. DeMercurio said he starts every consultation by listening to what is bothering a patient and then formulates a plan from there. Sometimes the plan will include surgery and/or laser treatments.  “The point is, we have all the expertise and experience as well as the latest technology here to provide the patient with a wide variety of options and treatments,” he said. The physicians at Halifax Health - Center for Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery make it their mission to provide carefully planned, customized care for each individual and to assure that they are helping patients achieve the results that they envision in the safest, most comfortable way possible.  “At the end of the day, the result I look for is a former patient telling me about reactions such as, ‘You look great. Have you been working out?’ or ‘Have you lost weight?’ not ‘I notice you’ve had a face lift.’ It gives people the confidence they need to succeed,” said Dr. DeMercurio.
