The specialties of dermatology and plastic surgery complement each other exceptionally well. We like to say that where one begins, the other ends, but it is a continuum. At Janiga MDs in Reno, most of our patients take advantage of both the plastic surgery and the dermatology side of the practice.
One great example of how plastic surgery and dermatology work together is in how we treat patients who are looking for an anti aging affect for their face. From the plastic surgery side, we can treat those larger issues that require surgery like removing excess skin, tightening underlying structures, and removing fatty deposits. From the dermatology side, we can improve the texture and tone of the skin, improve volume with fillers and help with fine lines and wrinkles.
At Janiga MDs, our patients enjoy a well-rounded approach to treatment. For example, all of our surgery patients receive a gift certificate to have a complimentary consultation with my wife our dermatologist, Dr. Jennifer Janiga.
During this consultation, they can talk to Dr. Jennifer about how they can maintain their youthful appearance after surgery and into the future. When she meets with people after I have operated on them she will advise them about skin checks, brown spots, fine lines and wrinkles and what products would best work for them. Often times these surgery patients will opt to receive lasers, botox or filler to complete their anti aging goals.
The reverse is also true. A lot of our dermatology patients will see Dr. Jennifer Janiga for many years and then decide that they would like to have surgery. Lasers, filler, botox and product are great for maintenance of the skin, but sometimes the only thing that will fix laxity issues is removing and lifting the skin, and that’s where I come in.
By having both dermatology and plastic surgery in the same office, we can offer a well-rounded approach to procedures and skin care. Many times I will see a patient for surgery and let them know they are not ready for that extensive of a procedure and my wife will perform a less invasive treatment for them. This holds surgery off sometimes forever and other times for a few years.
This combined all-inclusive approach allows our patients to get the best long-term result as possible with the best approach for their individual needs.
Call our Reno plastic surgery and dermatology offices any time to set up your consultation. We can help you decide if you should see Dr. Jennifer Janiga in dermatology or myself, Dr. Timothy Janiga in plasic surgery (or both).
