The Importance of Picking a Specialized Surgeon

 Facial Plastic Surgeon | Kristin J Tarbet | Bellevue WA A surgeon is a surgeon, is a surgeon, is that right? Unfortunately, and fortunately, that’s not the case. In the medical field, there are a variety of surgeons that specialize in an array of things from the top of the body (neurosurgery) all the way to the bottom (urology). Here at Kristin Tarbet office, we specialize in oculofacial plastic surgery. But, what’s the importance of picking an oculofacial plastic surgery over let’s say, a general practitioner? Let’s take a closer look.

They’re Just Injectables

Botox and fillers are now more popular than ever, and that popularity isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. And because they can be done in a doctor’s office in about 30 minutes, can’t anybody administer them? Well, technically, any physician or nurse can give patients Botox and fillers, but that doesn’t mean they’re experts. You know those nightmares you’ve heard or read about botched Botox?

Chances are, they weren’t done by a specialist. Because Kristin Tarbet is specialized in oculofacial plastic surgery, she knows all about your facial muscles and how they react to these drugs— leaving you with better results.

Specialization is Everything

The last thing you would do is take your newborn to the vet and your new puppy to the pediatrician. Similarly, you shouldn’t go just to any doctor for facial surgeries or procedures. And, let’s face it, when it comes to your face, it’s the last thing you want to screw up. By specializing in eyelid surgery, facelifts, earlobe repair, facelifts, eyebrow lifts, fillers, and more, Dr. Kristin Tarbet has not only seen just about everything, but she has extensive training in each area as well.
