Plastic Surgery and COVID-19: What You Should Know

If you’re considering undergoing a surgical procedure during COVID-19, you’re not alone. According to a survey by The American Society of Plastic Surgeons, of the 1,000 people surveyed, 49% of those who’d had plastic surgery before are open to undergoing cosmetic surgery in these times, and that 28% of those who hadn’t were also open to scheduling surgical procedures.

At DiGeronimo MD Advanced Plastic Surgery in Miami, Florida, Dr. Ernest and his team are here to cover all of your cosmetic surgeries in the safest and most sterile environment possible. Your safety is our greatest priority, and we keep that in mind as we continue to serve you in these difficult times.  

We’re taking precautions, with your safety in mind 

We’ve made certain accommodations in accordance with The American Society of Plastic Surgeons. We’ve taken the time to educate our staff on the new guidelines and precautions. 

Our doctors and staff also wear specialized masks, face shields, and gloves to ensure as safe an environment as possible. We check our temperatures as well and we make sure that we don’t come in if we’re experiencing any symptoms at all. 

We’ve reassessed our cleaning protocols and our daily sterilization routines so that we can reduce your risk of exposure and infection as much as possible in these times. We’ve scheduled more cleanings of our office throughout the day to ensure as sterile an environment as possible.   

We’ve also put in place a patient flow plan that’ll allow for the proper amount of social distancing. We also check our patient’s temperatures and ask if you’ve been sick recently or have been around anyone sick when you come into our office.

We’ve also been offering telehealth appointments via video chat software whenever possible. We also send your paperwork electronically, via email or fax, so that you don’t have to come in to fill it out, decreasing your risk of exposure. 

While elective surgery has become available again in this phase of our state’s reopening, our office and hospital are still taking extra precautions. We’re not allowing anyone else to come in with our patients except in the instances of parents and children.
