Dr. Tracy Hankins Provides Patient Tips For Safe Plastic Surgery Procedures

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- The recent death of Donda West, rapper Kanye West's mother, raised questions about the safety of plastic surgery. The factors contributing to her untimely death are still emerging and include concerns over her physician's lack of board certification and his decision to combine procedures in a lengthy surgery. "Patients should be reassured that Donda West's tragic outcome is unusual," said Dr. Tracy Hankins of Ariana Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center. "Complications are uncommon if your surgery is performed in a safe manner," he emphasized.

Popular cosmetic surgery shows have given people the idea that only one surgery is necessary for a head-to-toe transformation. Dr. Hankins said that cosmetic surgery shows are a good way to increase people's awareness of plastic surgery's benefits, but may also dangerously skew a patient's expectations.

Dr. Hankins offered these tips to minimize plastic surgery risks:

1) Verify your physician is board certified in plastic surgery. Board

certification demonstrates that your doctor meets professional

standards. "Most doctors certified by the American Board of Plastic

Surgery list that on their web site," said Dr. Hankins. Patients can

visit the American Board of Medical Specialties at http://www.abms.org

to check their doctor's certification.

2) Seek several opinions. "Speak with several board certified plastic

surgeons and understand that the most conservative recommendations may

come from the surgeons who are most concerned with your safety and

well-being," said Dr. Hankins.

3) Discuss how many surgeries will be necessary to achieve the result you

want.

4) Ask your doctor to explain the risks associated with your medical

background and profile. Your age, weight, and health are all factors.

5) Verify that your doctor is operating in an accredited facility.

6) Ask about post-operative care. If complications do arise, it is

imperative that you seek care immediately.
