Dr. Donaldson has been recognized as one of America’s Most Compassionate Doctors by Patients’ Choice.

Every month, more than 200,000 patients across the U.S. provide online feedback about their doctor experiences. They rate various components of the care they receive, such as bedside manner, doctor-patient face time, follow-up care, ease of appointment setting and courtesy of office staff. They also share their overall opinions.

While physicians generally receive positive feedback from their patients, only a select few receive praise about the compassion that accompanied their care.

In fact, of the nation’s 870,000 active doctors, only 3 percent were accorded this honor by their patients in 2012.

The Compassionate Doctor certification is part of the Patients’ Choice recognition program, where patients rate and vote for for their favorite doctors. Dr. Donaldson is now among those physicians so highly regarded that his patients feel the need to talk to others about the positive influence of his work.

Dr. Donaldson and his patient were featured in a Capital Style magazine article, “The Mommy Makeover”. Following is an excerpt – Click for a PDF of the full article.

Columbus Ohio Capital Style Magazine - The Mommy Makeover

“The outpatient surgeries usually last a few hours under local anesthesia and leave scars that are hidden by a bathing suit. The recovery time—typically one or two weeks without work or chasing kids and just gradual exposure thereafter—can be especially difficult for a mother with young children.

That’s according to Dr. Jeffrey Donaldson of Donaldson Plastic Surgery on Sawmill Road, who did Fischer’s surgery. He sees a wide range of women who are interested in “mommy makeover” surgeries, he said, including recent empty-nesters ‘ready to do something for themselves.’

Of course, most surgeons suggest that women work on dieting and exercise before scheduling a procedure.”

Tummy tuck, liposuction and breast lift (with or without breast augmentation) are all considered part of a mommy makeover.

Mommy Makeover Columbus OhioPregnancy and breastfeeding lead to very predictable physical changes for many women: abdominal bulging, belly button distortion, stretch marks, love handles and deflated breasts. The mommy makeover treats each of these problem areas. The tummy tuck flattens the abdominal bulge and allows the “six-pack” to emerge. It also refines the belly button into a more attractive shape and position, and it eliminates all stretch marks that occur between the belly button and the pubic area. Liposuction removes the love handles and provides a more feminine, curvy “hourglass” shape above the hips. The breast lift elevates sagging nipples and skin, and is often combined with breast augmentation using implants to create more fullness and cleavage.

You’ve put so much into your children that it’s often difficult to find time for yourself. Good nutrition and regular exercise are important, but they usually don’t fully correct the bulging, sagging and stretching — these corrections require plastic surgery. Mommy Makeover procedures are safe and very effective for restoring pre-pregnancy contours; they can be done separately, or at the same time in one operation. You should wait at least six months between your last pregnancy or breastfeeding and your surgery date, and if you become pregnant again after surgery, you might need a touch-up.
