At minimum, a person should always use a good sunscreen with UVA/UVB protection. From there, there are many good lines from which to choose which provide simple but important basics:

  • Topical Vitamin C for antioxidant protection
  • Retinol (Vitamin A) for exfoliation
  • Hydroquinone or a more natural approach with Pigment Regulator for dark spots (hyperpigmentation).

Consulting with your plastic surgeon’s office will help you formulate a skin care plan best suited for your skin type. Consistent use of such products will both protect and improve the condition of one’s skin and help hold back the signs of aging.

With so many forms of liposuction in Oklahoma City being marketed today, the best approach is to first consult with a plastic surgeon who is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. It is important to understand that any form of liposuction uses a cannula to suction fat from the body. This process is invasive in nature therefore is considered surgery. Surgery should be performed in an accredited surgery center by a credentialed plastic surgeon. Your consultation will help you make a wise choice in terms of areas, quantities and technique best suited for you.

Is it important for my surgeon to be “board-certified”?

American Board of Plastic Surgery logoAbsolutely. Many healthcare providers are now performing plastic surgery procedures, but that doesn’t mean they’re all qualified to perform plastic surgery. Members of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). The ABPS is the only board approved by the American Board of Medical Specialties to certify physicians in the field of plastic surgery of the face and all areas of the body. By choosing an ASPS Member Surgeon, like Tim R. Love, M.D., you know your provider:

  • Has at least 6 years of surgical training & experience with a minimum of 3 years of plastic surgery
  • Is certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery
  • Operates in only accredited medical facilities
  • Adheres to a strict code of ethics
  • Fulfills continuing medical education requirements, including standards & innovations in patient safety
  • Will be your partner, working to achieve your goals

Only plastic surgeons with these qualifications have earned the right to display the ASPS Member Surgeon symbol. Go to www.plasticsurgery.org to learn more about qualifications.
