I am a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, specializing in cosmetic surgery of the Breast, Body, and Face. There are hundreds, if not a thousand, practices in the New York area that do the same. What makes my office important is that we focus on the Hispanic community.
The reason Yager Esthetics is in existence is to fill the need for a well trained, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who speaks Spanish, has an Accredited Ambulatory Surgery Center with inspections every year, Board Certified Anesthesiologists and Registered Nurses, providing the safe alternative for affordable cosmetic plastic surgery in the US. This seems like an advertisement, but unfortunately it is reality.
I had seen and heard too many horror stories from surgeries done overseas and in unqualified and underqualified offices here in the States. Even today, you can see and hear ads on television, radio, and in newspapers by purported experts aimed squarely at the Hispanic community to take advantage of them. Family Practitioners, Ob/Gyn’s, Internist, Rehab Medicine specialists, and even Podiatrists and Dentists put out deceptive ads that make you assume they are Plastic Surgeons.
My pledge since I opened Yager Esthetics in 1997 was to provide safe and affordable Cosmetic Plastic Surgery focused on the Hispanic Community. I will keep fighting to educate and protect my community, and hope one day legislation comes down to make all doctors disclose their training and practice within their own specialty. Until then, count on Yager Esthetics.
