Discount or Dangerous: Is Seeing a Non Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon OK?

October 15, 2013

In the latest New Beauty article they bring up a very important question: Discount or Dangerous: Is Seeing a Non Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon OK?

If you're an avid NewBeauty reader, you know that board-certification is vital when selecting a doctor. But, every year thousands of procedures are performed by non board-certified plastic surgeons. Either people want a deal or they know the doctor or they don't understand their doctor's certifications.


From doctors purchasing fake Botox to using a non board-certified plastic surgeon, choosing your doctor when considering cosmetic procedures is more important than ever. Use your consultation to your advantage. Ask the important questions and take your time when determining if this doctor is the correct fit for your needs. When you consult with Doctor Olson, you will collaboratively develop a personal plan designed just for you; your goals, your schedule and your options. The consultation with Doctor Olson is the most valuable time you will spend prior to treatment. Equally important, you will get a sense of your comfort with Doctor Olson, her skills, aesthetic point of view, and bedside manner. Doctor Olson will examine you and assess your facial anatomy- specifically, the skin, muscle, fat, bone and supportive structures. She will take into consideration your medical history and previous surgeries, your age and health status, and your desired outcome. 

Doctor Olson will take the necessary time to assess your desires, decide on the most appropriate treatment plan for you, and then see you through the entire process of aesthetic improvement.

Doctor Olson is board certified and is fellowship trained as an oculofacial plastic surgeon. She is a fellow of the prestigious American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS) with fewer that 500 fellows nationwide. "Today's aesthetic surgeries and minimally invasive techniques can dramatically improve the way people look and feel about themselves." An Associate Clinical Professor at Yale University and past director of Yale Oculoplastic and Orbital Surgery, Doctor Olson has been in private practice since 1992 specializing in performing aesthetic eyelid and facial injectables, lasers and surgery.


As both an academic and a practicing surgeon, Doctor Olson keeps abreast of the latest advancements in her field. "Great strides have been made in cosmetic enhancement in recent years. I think the paradigm of facial surgery has gone from being aggressive with lots of pulling and stretching to more minimally invasive procedures, including the use of lasers." Doctor Olson's advanced use of fillers like Hyaluronic acids (Juvedermtm Ultra, Juvedermtm Ultra Plus, Restylane®, Perlane®), Radiesse, collagen and Sculptra® also produce dramatic results. "These new generation dermal and deep fillers provide longer lasting and more cost-effective results." Even in the eyelids, preserving fat can prevent people from looking hollow." Working around the eyes is something that Doctor Olson takes very seriously. While she is all about aesthetics, she says safety and the function of the eyes is always most important. I believe in combining surgical and nonsurgical treatments in a nuanced fashion to achieve the most natural facial shape and contours."


When taking care of patients, Doctor Olson takes the necessary time to assess their desires, decide on the most appropriate treatment plan for that individual, and then see the person through the entire process of aesthetic improvement. In many cases she does so by using a combination of surgery, fillers, BOTOX, lights, lasers and medical skin care. "Fillers can often provide what surgery can't, and vice versa," she says. No matter what the treatment plan is, all of Doctor Olson's services are provided in an approachable, friendly and caring manner.


Doctor Olson personally treats all her patients.
