SARASOTA, FL--(Marketwired - Apr 2, 2014) - When John Travolta appeared on the red carpet of this year's Academy Awards with a seemingly frozen facial expressions, rumors started quickly about facial surgery gone wrong. When it comes to cosmetic surgery, a rather unnatural look is a comparatively small risk though. Cosmetic surgery can greatly enhance our looks and give us a more youthful appearance. It is crucial, however, to pick the right doctor to receive competent advice and help in selecting the appropriate procedure and to make sure the surgeon has extensive experience to minimize medical risks. When selecting a cosmetic surgeon, it is important to check the surgeon's record as well as his reputation and ask as many questions as one can think of during the first consultation to develop a feel for how much experience the surgeon has in carrying out the desired procedure.
Getting information about a physician's record and reputation has never been as easy as it is now. Plenty of information is available online, only a mouse click away. When it comes to professional credentials, there are several professional boards and organizations that give reliable feedback on the competency and skills of a surgeon, such as the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery*, or the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery. All of these organizations provide online catalogs, where patients can do a simple search to see whether a doctor is registered with the organization or not. Some doctors, such as Dr. Alberico Sessa from Sarasota Surgical Arts, are even members of not one, but several such organizations, a testimony to extensive training and many years of experience. On top of that, he has received the Patient's Choice Award from Vitals.com in 2011 and three consecutive years thereafter for his outstanding performance and great reviews he received from his patients.
Every year, Dr. Sessa performs hundreds of incredibly successful cosmetic procedures, such as facelifts or breast augmentations, at his own private facility, Sarasota Surgical Arts. Because his cutting edge surgical facility features two complete operating rooms, a board certified anesthesiologist, nurses, and estheticians, patients can avoid having to go to a hospital for their procedures. This way they can circumvent dealing with the bureaucracy and anonymity of a big institution, avoid being subjected to all kinds of diseases and instead receive their treatment in the safe environment of the private facility. An experienced team, specialized in cosmetic surgery procedures, takes care of patients at Sessa's outpatient surgery center, from their first consultation to their last post-op visit, at this outpatient surgery center, which is accredited by the Florida Board of Medicine.
Dr. Sessa, doctor of cosmetic surgery, has earned his MD degree from the College of Medicine at Louisiana State University (LSU) in 2000. He completed his internship in General Surgery at Charity Hospital and his residency in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery back at LSU in New Orleans. After his time in New Orleans he completed a Facial & Full Body Cosmetic Surgery fellowship, which is accredited by the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery based in Salt Lake City, Utah. Dr. Sessa then opened his own practice, Sarasota Surgical Arts, in Sarasota, Florida, where he works together with his team to provide patients with the highest standards of patient care, comfort, and absolute safety. He takes great pride in his state-of-the-art facility, which he continually updates with the latest technological advances to achieve the best possible results. His patients appreciate him for his courteous, compassionate and competent manner, resulting in an excellent reputation that reaches well beyond the city of Sarasota.
