However, the single most important factor that still continues to impact the final outcomes is the skill and experience of the cosmetic surgeon. Patients should invest time and effort in selecting the most appropriate surgeon for their aesthetic needs.
The pre-operative consultation is an opportunity for a new patient to interact with the surgeon and learn about their qualifications and accomplishments. Dr. Paul McCluskey is a dedicated plastic surgeon providing cutting edge procedures for the breast, body and face to patients in Atlanta, Buckhead, Georgia, and surrounding communities and cities in this part of the American southeast.
Patients should ideally choose a surgeon who is not only qualified in general surgery, but also has specialized training and expertise in the area of cosmetic surgery. A preliminary source of information about the professional credentials of the cosmetic surgeon is their practice website, which may provide clear and transparent information about the surgeon’s academic and training background.
Patients should review the surgeon’s website before they visit them for a pre-op consultation. During the consultation, they should feel free to ask questions and clarify any doubts or concerns about the surgeon’s credentials and their practice. A committed surgeon will encourage the patient to ask questions and satisfy all their queries in detail.
Dr. McCluskey completed a five year residency in general surgery, and published and presented his research as Chief Resident at various local and national meetings. He followed this with a plastic surgery residency at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, where he trained alongside world-renowned leaders and innovators in the field of cosmetic, plastic and reconstructive surgery.
Dr. McCluskey has been honored for his contributions as a teacher of residents and medical students, and has been a multi-year recipient of Resident of the Year awards. He has authored several peer-reviewed journal articles on a wide range of topics related to cosmetic and plastic surgery.
During his days of medical internship in anesthesiology, the percipient Dr. McCluskey was inspired to drastically change his career path. His mother underwent a mastectomy for breast cancer with reconstructive breast surgery. The reconstruction worked very positively to help her recover from this devastating diagnosis. This is when Dr. McCluskey turned towards plastic surgery.
The proven and successful Dr. McCluskey deeply understands and appreciates the concerns of his patients, and ensures that they are completely comfortable about their sharing their cosmetic needs and goals.
