Choosing Your Surgeon

Choosing Your Surgeon

If you've decided to have plastic surgery, or a non-surgical cosmetic procedure, your first step will be selecting a facial plastic surgeon. In Orlando, Florida, and the surrounding areas, there are plenty of choices, including Dr. Kenrick Spence. So where do you start? Recommendations from friends or relatives who have had a procedure similar to the one you want are a common place to begin. But there are a number of other steps to take before making a decision.

Dr. Spence specializes in Advanced Facial Rejuvenation, Facial Surgery, Facial Revision Surgeries, Body Contouring, Body Contouring Revisionary Surgeries and Treatment of Keloid Scars.

To meet with Dr. Spence, request a consultation at Hillcrest Plastic Surgery. Or, you can give us a call at (407) 999-2585 and our knowledgeable staff will be happy to help you.


It's important to choose a plastic surgeon who specializes in facial surgery and non-surgical procedures, such as Dr. Spence, and one who regularly performs the specific procedure you want. Other qualifications that your surgeon should have include:

  • Certification by The American Board of Plastic Surgery, which requires at least 6 years of training and experience
  • Surgical privileges at a hospital or medical center with an accredited surgical facility
  • Membership in the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons®
  • Participation in continuing education efforts, as plastic surgery is a dynamic field that requires surgeons to stay up to date with the latest clinically proven techniques

Questions to Ask

It's important to have a list of questions ready when you go to your initial consultation with a surgeon before making your decision. Here are some recommended questions:

  • What is your experience with this procedure?
  • Can I see before-and-after photos of your past patients who had this procedure?
  • Where will the procedure be performed?
  • Is the surgical facility accredited?

A Personal Connection

Education, training, and experience are vital when choosing a plastic surgeon. But cosmetic surgery requires a personal relationship that is built on trust and confidence, not only with the surgeon, but with the medical and professional team.

Your surgeon should encourage your questions and engage in a discussion to understand your specific cosmetic goals, while offering alternative treatments that might be appropriate for your situation. It's important that you don't feel pressured to accept the surgeon's suggestions and that the final decision is yours.

I have been a patient of Dr. Spence twice now. I didn't hesitate to contact him when I was ready to move forward with my adominoplasty. It has been a long and, at times, rough recovery but Dr. Spence and his staff have been right by my side every step of the way.
