New Jersey Plastic Surgeon Says Continued Education Is Essential for Good Practice

PARAMUS, NJ--(Marketwire - Mar 21, 2012) - Dr. Luis Zapiach, a plastic surgeon in New Jersey, says surgeons who stay active in their education are more equipped to provide the highest levels of care to their patients. With the upcoming plastic surgery conferences this year and the recently released statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), Dr. Zapiach stresses the importance of finding a doctor who consistently pursues the latest techniques and technology for his practice.

According to the latest study from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the number of cosmetic procedures performed in 2011 is up 5% since 2010 to 13.1 million total surgical and nonsurgical enhancements. With such staggering growth and booming demand, Dr. Zapiach says keeping up-to-date with current advancements in the field of aesthetic surgery at his New Jersey plastic surgery practice has never been more important for surgeons. He says whether they are looking for a complex procedure like breast augmentation or a simple injection such as BOTOX in New Jersey, patients need to be sure their doctor is providing the safest and most effective procedures and techniques.

Dr. Zapiach says that some of the most important qualities of surgical prowess are experience and a vast knowledge of advanced techniques. He says staying active in continued education through annual conferences, educational courses, and extensive training keeps doctors sharp and precise in their ability to perform procedures with the utmost care and aesthetic mastery. Dr. Zapiach also says doctors who pursue a higher level of knowledge in the field of plastic surgery will be able to achieve the best results, as developments continuously emerge and evolve to adapt to patient needs and safe practice. "Knowledge is the basis of any scientific endeavor, and as medicine evolves, so do salient practitioners," he says.

For patients looking to improve their overall appearance and confidence with an aesthetic procedure, or to restore their natural beauty through a reconstructive procedure like breast reconstruction, Dr. Zapiach says he urges everyone to seek the expertise and consultation of a board-certified plastic surgeon and to research a practice extensively before making a selection. He says board-certification ensures patients they are receiving safe and effective care from an up-to-date surgeon, while a personable and passionate practice will help them achieve the aesthetic goals that will bring confidence and satisfaction.
