Should you do Injectables with a Nurse Injector or a Plastic Surgeon?

As a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, I like to think I am very well trained. With degrees from Johns Hopkins and Columbia, as well as training at Columbia Presbyterian, not to mention 19 years of practice, few boast better credentials. So why should you consider my Nurse Injector for your Botox and fillers?

The first reason is that she is less expensive than I am. She also has more availability, as I am in surgery for a lot of hours each week. The convenience and cost factors are nice, but is the quality the same?

I did not inject a single patient while in training, as my Department Chairman would not allow any representatives to come and teach us, for fear of product bias. So all of the fancy degrees did not make me a good injector, I learned from the reps and by treating patients. My Nurse Injector took courses and certification programs to learn before ever touching a patient.

I do many things at Yager Esthetics- consults, post operative visits, minor procedures, and cosmetic plastic surgery. My Nurse Injector just injects and does other esthetic treatments, so it is 100% of what she does.

I established Yager Esthetics in 1997. I would not allow anyone to perform a procedure if it would damage my reputation even 1%. You can be assured that I back my Nurse 100%. I trust her with you.

Do not think I do a bad job or that I don’t want to do injectables- it is fun, and I do it well. There are just not enough hours in my day to treat every patient personally, and by having a well trained Nurse Injector, you can save time and money without sacrificing quality.
