Atlanta Plastic Surgeon Dr. Fernando Burstein Voted Plastic Surgery ‘Top Doc’ by Area Physicians

dr bursteinFernando Burstein M.D., F.A.C.S., F.A.A.P. of Atlanta Plastic Surgery, P.C. recognized as one of Atlanta Magazine’s ‘Top Docs’ in the field of Plastic Surgery for the fourth year in a row.

Atlanta Magazine releases a complete list of the area’s best physicians each year in a variety of practices including everything from family and sports medicine to plastic surgery. The list is assembled by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., a New York healthcare organization that surveys the most reputable medical providers across the nation to determine the most gifted physicians. Dr. Fernando Burstein earned ‘Top Doc’ accolades for many years including: 1999, 2001, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012.

Licensed physicians in DeKalb, Fulton, Cobb, Clayton, and Gwinnett counties were able to vote on physicians in their areas who exemplify academic superiority and excellent patient care. The list is designed as an educational resource for consumers and providers.

Burstein discussed news of the repeated accomplishment, “It’s nice to be recognized for exemplary work, especially from such esteemed colleagues. Patients often underestimate the importance of their providers maintaining relationships with other surgeons to ensure they receive the best specialized care.”

Dr. Burstein is double board certified in plastic surgery and reconstructive surgery as well as otolaryngology (head and neck surgery). During his 25 year of surgical experience, Burstein has developed a unique “natural” approach to plastic surgery: using his patient’s own tissues and bone during surgery rather than synthetic materials like facial implants when possible. He employs the latest plastic surgery technology and techniques to provide patients with the most advanced care; just this year he introduced Ultherapy® FDA cleared for non-surgical brow lift and facial skin tightening.

By using outlets like his facial plastic surgery blog, website, and social media, Dr. Burstein strives to educate patients about facial plastic surgery by providing valid and helpful information online. He also takes time to discuss his patients’ complete medical history, surgical concerns and goals, and every aspect of their particular procedure during a preoperative consultation to ensure patients are happy with their results and even provides tips to help patients recover better and faster. As demonstrated through his Spotlight Patient articles, a section of his blog highlighting his patients’ personal experiences, his patients are very pleased with his work as well as his staff. Describing Dr. Burstein and his team as “absolutely wonderful,” his December 2010 Spotlight Patient stated, “They listened to what I wanted out of the surgery and were realistic with what could be accomplished. They even gave me recovery tips so that I would heal faster.”
