1Is Lexington Plastic Surgeons Board Certified?

Each of our physicians has board certifications. Dr. Michael E. Jones, our founder, is board certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery.

2What is the difference between Keloid Care and ScarShield? When is the best time to use these creams?

Keloid Care is an innovative, fast-acting, topical cream specifically designed to help improve the appearance of thick or stubborn scars like keloids and hypertrophic (raised) scars, as well as lightens discoloration in the affected and surrounding area.

ScarShield is a topical treatment created by scar expert and leading cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Michael E. Jones. Inspired by patients who shared their discomfort with scars from injuries or burns, Dr. Jones delivers a natural-ingredient solution ideal for patients of all ethnicities.

Keloid care contains the ingredient of Hydrocortisone and ScarShield does not. Hydrocortisone prevents the itching sensation. Both creams must be applied once the wound is fully healed after surgery.

3When patients travel from out of state or out the country, does LPS have a partnership or discounted rates with hotels near by?

While we do not currently have discounted hospitality options, we do provide patients with a list of area hotels nearest to our Midtown Manhattan location.

4How many follow ups do I have after surgery and is there a Co-pay needed?

We provide all our patients with a FREE 12-months worth of follow-ups after surgery. No co-pay needed.

5Why do I have to come in for a day-one post-operative appointment?

We stress that our patients come in for a Day-One Post-Op appointment because most of our patients are put under general anesthesia and we want to check and make sure everything is okay. After your Day-One Post-Op appointment, there is then a Day-Seven Follow-up scheduled.

6How Successful is the Radiation Treatment?

Lexington Plastic Surgeons currently have a success rate of 96% of our keloids not returning.

7What is the definition of SRT?

SRT- short for Superficial Radiation Treatment, used in the treatment of keloids and scars. This radiation is different than most radiation treatments because it only targets the skin’s surface. This radiation treatment does not go deep into your body such as other radiation treatments used for cancer patients.

8Does Dr. Michael E. Jones practice in his other locations and when?

Dr. Jones leads from his flagship office in New York City. Throughout the year, Dr. Jones makes it a priority to travel to all of his locations. His schedule is maintained about a month in advance and is shared with his Consultants, who can then adjust scheduling opportunities based upon procedures that may appear.
