WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT MY PROFESSION
Helping people

HOW MY PROFESSION HAS EVOLVED

MOST MEMORABLE PATIENT REACTION

9.
THREE WORDS THAT BEST DESCRIBE ME
Honest, loyal, optimistic
10.
WHAT ARE YOUR MOST REQUESTED PROCEDURES?
In my practice it’s typically facelifts, followed closely by blepharoplasties and breast augmentations
11.
WHAT SURGICAL TRENDS ARE YOU SEEING AT YOUR PRACTICE?
We are seeing many more patients for Mommy Makeovers as compared to 10 years ago. It might have something to do with social media and the info that’s out there. People realize today that these procedures are not only possible, but are also fairly noninvasive and the downtime can be short
12.
HOW DO YOU MANAGE PATIENT EXPECTATIONS?
The best way to manage patient expectations is do to so honestly. It’s important that my patients are happy with the result and I am upfront when we cannot achieve what they have in mind
13.
HOW ARE YOU HELPING TO ADVANCE THE FIELD AT LARGE?
I feel very strongly that patient safety is of the utmost importance. Pennsylvania is one of the first states in the country to have a patient safety authority. We stress how important it is for patients to go to accredited physicians and facilities to ensure that both the doctor and the setting where the procedure is performed is credentialed properly

Expert Insight

A Variety of Noninvasive Options

 

“I’m very excited about noninvasive procedures, especially CoolSculpting®,” says Dr. McCafferty. “I believe Kybella™, which was recently approved by the FDA for spot removal of submental fat, will also be very popular.” His practice also offers a number of injectables and fillers for those looking for results without surgery. “We offer many injectables including the neuromodulators such as Botox®, Dysport® and Xeomin®, and utilize all fillers.” And with two full-time licensed aestheticians on staff, the noninvasive options are vast. The en suite skin-care spa offers a menu of nonsurgical treatments and services such as microdermabrasion, micropeels, ZO® Medical and the VI Peel™, as well as products from PCA Clinical Skin Care and SkinMedica®
