Learning about, reviewing and testing the latest medical devices is a constant process for Dr. Gayle. Striving to provide only those services which he knows will provide improvement, Dr. Gayle is very methodical when choosing new treatments. “The process we go through starts with what’s in literature. Then I speak with colleagues and look at the science behind the technology. I look at what has provided value in terms of patient safety and whether the product is capable of delivering what it promises,” he says. “All too often this is where devices fall short. It’s difficult to do harm when you’re not actually making significant changes. I examine everything skeptically.” When he does move forward with a new procedure, he is careful to be straightforward with patients. When doing a cutting-edge procedure like fat grafting, for example, he tells patients what to expect. “It’s not a procedure that has a long track record or a high degree of predictability, even though it is safe and short-term effective,” he says.
To ensure his patients receive what he refers to as “the best possible care, with the highest regard for safety and aesthetic excellence,” Dr. Gayle works with a group of board-certified anesthesiologists and engages in comprehensive pre-surgical planning. “All of my operations are firmly established before ever stepping foot in the operating room, which enables me to execute the patient’s vision clearly and efficiently,” he says. Prior to surgery, all of his patients receive a packet of information about their particular surgery and written instructions for post-surgical care. “All post-surgical patients receive follow-up calls and can reach me anytime. Enlightening patients helps me to further involve them in the experience, partnering with them to achieve gorgeous aesthetic results—together, as a team.”
Calling upon more than 20 years of experience and knowledge, gained from thousands of procedures performed, Dr. Lloyd B. Gayle parlays his accumulated wisdom, surgical know-how and in-depth appreciation for the human form into refined cosmetic outcomes that reflect his background in micro- and reconstructive plastic surgery. In addition to launching a new website, Dr. Gayle has introduced digital record keeping so patients can make appointments and update medical histories conveniently online.
