These days patients have many options when it comes to plastic surgery, but not all physicians practice within their specialty and some are not necessarily qualified in the procedures they administer. Dr. Don Griffin, board-certified plastic surgeon and certified ExpertInjector, explains why it is important for patients to seek out a physician who is qualified for the procedure they are interested in.
“In order to receive quality care, reduce safety risks and see the best results, patients must be able to locate physicians who are experts in the sought-after procedure,” says Dr. Griffin. For injectables and fillers, “The ExpertInjector program is crucial to patient safety and helps connect patients to the right doctors for injectable treatments.
Dr. Griffin, with more than 13 years experience with injecting, is one of the few physicians in the U.S. qualified as an Expert Injector. In fact, 1.2 million doctors in the nation are legally allowed to perform injectable treatments like Botox, Juvederm and Restylane, but only 7 percent of them are qualified by the ExpertInjector program. Expert Injectors are defined as board-certified plastic surgeons, facial plastic surgeons, dermatologists, or oculoplastic surgeons who have demonstrated extreme due diligence in regards to patient safety, consumer education and reliable results.
“We pride ourselves on providing patients with safe treatments that result in quality cosmetic improvements,” says Dr. Griffin. “The ExpertInjector program is a testament to that, and acknowledges the physicians who are able to perform the job with expertise.”
