Dr. Speron Explains the Perceived Difference Between Male & Female Plastic Surgeons and Boston’s Gender Discrimination Law (amazon) (shopzilla)

Park Ridge, IL (PRWEB) August 18, 2013

Cosmetic surgery is successfully booming in the United States and it continues to rise as more individuals seek self-improvement surgically. Despite the enticements, there aren’t a lot of women streaming into plastic surgery as they are into other medical fields such as general medicine, obstetrics, pediatrics and gynecology.

According to a August, 2012 study by the American College of Surgeons, the number of women in surgery training has increased evidently from 21 percent in 1999 to 35 percent in 2009.

There were some indications that male and female physicians communicate differently with their patients. Researchers say that, when they observed doctors of both genders during a hundred patient visits, they found that women physicians were more passionate and less overbearing than men. The real subject of debate between male and female plastic surgeons may be though that they have different standards of beauty.

Female patients are drawn perhaps to the awareness that they are going to acquire more understanding and time from a female surgeon, notes Dr. Sam Speron, board certified plastic surgeon and consumer advocate. I do personally feel though that there are excellent male and female plastic surgeons who relate well to their patients. My patients visually look for a sense of comfort, someone who they are willing to trust. A sense of security is more important to patients than the gender of their physician!

As reported by the Boston Globe in February of 2013, a Harvard Medical School doctor has settled a gender discrimination lawsuit against Bostons Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center for $ 7 million. Dr. Carol Warfield, who became chief of anesthesia at Beth Israel in 2000, stated that the former chief of surgery discriminated against Carol due to her being a woman. The chief of surgery openly disregarded Carol in meetings and urging for her removal. Once Carol protested to her former chief executive, she suspected both men retaliated and forced her out. Carol Warfield still sees patients part time in the clinic she helped start. Warfield, in an interview with the Globe spoke about the difficulties she had to face as a woman ascending to the top influences of academic medicine. Warfield had also stated that she continuously felt an obligation to keep the door open for other women.

The human potential to excel in the medical field should not be the province of one gender or another. Dr. Sam Speron noted. There shouldn’t be any discrimination anywhere, especially in the medical field Dr. Sam Speron added.

When asked in ASPS studies, individuals mostly answered no preference to the question of preferring a male or female surgeon. Patients specified that when choosing a plastic surgeon, what is strictly more important to them is education, credentials and experience. The outdated notions that female plastic surgeons were more compassionate and related better to women or male plastic surgeons were smarter or more competent are simply no longer valid.

Dr. Speron is the founder and medical director of Dr. Speron Plastic Surgery. He is board certified with the American Board of Plastic Surgery and an active member of both the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS).

        Dr. Speron Plastic Surgery & the Park Ridge Medical Spa Will Now Be Selling Retin-a or Isotretinoin out of the office (amazon) (shopzilla)

        Park Ridge, IL (PRWEB) March 05, 2013

        Dr. Speron Plastic Surgery & the Park Ridge Medical Spa are proud to announce that the office will be now offering purchases of Retin-A or Isotretinoin products. Retin-A is a product that is known for its myriad of benefits for anti-aging and skincare. It is also one of the most recommended skincare products by dermatologists and plastic surgeons nationwide as it is highly effective. The office price will be much cheaper than what patients currently pay for it at other doctors offices or major pharmacy chains like Target, Walmart, Walgreens and CVS.

        The reason that Retin-A or Isotretinoin is so widely recommended is because of all the various ways it can improve the skin. Retin-A has been found to be effective in treating acne, decreasing brown spots, and fighting wrinkles. It also aids in improving skin texture, shrinking pores, preventing blackheads, and making skin feel overall smoother. However, an even greater reason to try Retin-A is that it has been found to treat pre-cancerous cells! Improving the look of your skin while fighting off disease. No wonder this skincare product is so popular.

        Retin-A is an extremely effective and versatile product. I recommend it to many of my patients because it can be beneficial for many different skin types, says Dr. Sam Speron, Chicago Plastic Surgeon and patient advocate.

        When applying Retin-A, you only need a pea size dab for your entire face and it is recommended to limit application to two or three times a week. Retin-A may also take a few weeks or months before showing significant improvement and it is not uncommon for skin condition to worsen before it gets better. However, the biggest piece of advice is to be patient and hang in there!
