What do patients say about Dr. Burnett?
Patients say that Dr. Burnett is a perfectionist, and that theyreally feel cared about in his hands. Dr.Burnett demonstrates his commitment to perfection starting in each patient’s first meeting: “I want to find out what’s bothering each patient. I need to make sure I understand each new patient well enough to give her what she really wants”.
“We get very involved with each patient. We take our time. Most doctors go only as far as eliminating the problems that patients complain about. We listen.” This shows Dr. Burnett’s own standards, and is one of the outstanding characteristics that makes him a top plastic surgeon in New Jersey.
“The knife is not always a solution to life’s problems.” Dr. Burnett has performed thousands of cosmetic surgeries, but first and foremost he makes sure that surgery is the best way for each patient to achieve her goals. “I have to be convinced that surgery is the best way to get from point A to point B. This is what I expect from myself. If surgery is not the only way a patient can achieve her goals, I present the options.”
As an African American plastic surgeon, Dr. Burnett has a lot of experience with patients who have skin and body characteristics that are unique to their race. People from Spanishdescent, eastern cultures, as well as African Americans want to be seen by a practice with expertise in their unique body and skin characteristics.
Ethnic plastic surgery among African-Americans, Hispanics and Asians are continuously on the rise. In the latest survey conducted by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Hispanics account for 10 percent of the 12 million cosmetic plastic surgery procedures. In 2011, there were 1,609,372 cosmetic procedures performed on Hispanics. This was an increase of 8% from 2010, in which 1,489,152 procedures were performed. These statistics are beginning to shatter the taboo of plastic surgery among the ethnic population.
Latinos are most interested in liposuction, breast augmentation and ethnic rhinoplasty and non-invasive procedures like, Botox, fillers and chemical peels. The benefits for Hispanics is that since many have darker pigmentation, they tend not to show the signs of aging until later in life. However, this also creates more risks of scarring and pigment abnormalities. For this reason it is crucial that a specialist in ethnic skin handles their case.
