What Makes Our Practice Different?

What every prospective patient should know when considering Dr. Cooper and our practice philosophy and process.

Dr. Cooper: I am board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and am an active member of the Aesthetic Society of Plastic Surgery, which is designated for board certified plastic surgeons who perform cosmetic surgery procedures.

I am a second-generation cosmetic surgeon. When my dad was in the heyday of his career, every prospective patient was told to ask if the plastic surgeon they were considering was board certified. Board certification by the American Society of Plastic Surgery was the stamp of approval. To a certain extent, 30 years later, board certification remains very important. However, there are now so many different cosmetic boards with underlying sponsoring societies that it is challenging to use board certification as a metric of surgeon quality and surgical satisfaction.

What makes us unique is that we are a vertically integrated plastic surgeon office and surgical facility. That means I do all surgery in a private surgical facility that I control and operate. Having complete control over all aspects of the operation, including timing, staffing, instrumentation, equipment, lighting, and recovery, has been a total game-changer. I strongly believe that all aspects of the operative process need to be under the control of the operating surgeon. The facility needs to be set up, staffed, and supplied with the specific focus of cosmetic surgery.

Having started my plastic surgery career at one of American’s top hospitals, Massachusetts General Hospital, I realized early on what it meant not to have complete control and the compromises that resulted. Hence, my singular focus is to be able to do my best work every time I start an operation. It begins with a proper operative plan and realistic patient expectations about our goals for an outstanding surgical outcome. I have a full-time team that is consistent with respect to nursing, anesthesia and surgical assistance. A consistent team of people leads to better intraoperative communication through prior experiences shared together over hundreds of operations. We strive to be better, and our team understands we must continue this pursuit of excellence in order to achieve outstanding surgical outcomes for our patients.

I maintain hospital privileges at Jupiter Medical Center; some surgeons operate in an office setting because they cannot obtain the necessary requirements to do certain operations in a hospital setting. However, that is not my rationale, nor is it my situation.

What is your surgical office experience, and what do you do the most?

I specialize in face and neck lift surgery, and also breast surgery and tummy tucks. During the past five years, I have performed over 800 facial cosmetic surgeries in my surgical suite. These surgeries can be combined with laser, eyelid surgery, fat transfer, liposuction, chin augmentation, etc. I have also performed nearly 600 breast surgeries, including breast explantation, augmentation, reduction, nipple reduction, areola reduction, and lift. I also perform surgery after weight loss when an appropriate and stable BMI has been achieved.

Do you accept insurance?

I have opted out of all commercial insurance and Medicare. This means that patients can independently (on their own) submit certain medically necessary procedures to their insurance to obtain some reimbursement. However, my fee schedule (what it costs to have a specific procedure performed) is set by our office, and the cost for my services are not dictated by a third-party payer contract.

Why do you charge a fee for a consultation?

I am an expert in certain areas of cosmetic plastic surgery. If you are seriously considering face, neck, eyelid, or breast surgery, consulting with an expert is best. I only spend my clinical time focusing on cosmetic treatments and surgeries. I spend as long as I need to design an operation individualized to your anatomy and aging process with particular attention to your wishes. During a consult, you meet with me face to face for 30 minutes to 1 hour. At the end of the consult, if you are a candidate for surgery (not everyone is a candidate), you can expect to meet with my surgical coordinator and receive a fee based on what we discussed. This fee is all-inclusive; there are no additional OR fees, anesthesia fees, etc.
