Why Choose us for your Cosmetic Surgery?
Patients choose The Cosmetic Surgical Center of El Cerrito for their cosmetic needs for countless reasons—and our patients frequently return should they desire another procedure.
When researching potential cosmetic surgeons, we recommend that you visit the Medical Board of California website to make sure that the physician has an active medical license that is renewed and current. You should also verify the physician’s board certification status and specialty training and check the public record documents to see if there are any restrictions to the scope of their practice. Look at the before and after photos of the procedure that you desire. You should talk to previous patients to verify their outcomes and level of satisfaction. Once you are satisfied with your investigation, it is most important that you meet with the physician to determine if he or she genuinely cares about you.
When you schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Patino, he will disclose his Medical Board of California profile. You will see plenty of before and after photos and meet with his patients and read their testimonials. You will also view multiple television interviews, in which he discusses the cosmetic procedures that he performs and brings his own patients in as testimonials.
Dr. Patino performs all cosmetic procedures with mild sedation by mouth and tumescent anesthesia. Because general anesthesia is not used, your risks from the surgery are greatly reduced. General Anesthesia is also available at our fully IMQ accredited facility. A combination of general anesthesia and tumescent anesthesia is ideal for abdominoplasties. In addition to cosmetic surgery, Dr. Patino is also a board-certified internist and an emergency room physician. In the rare case of an emergency, he will initiate emergency resuscitation immediately.
