Columbus, Ohio, plastic surgeon, Dr. Jeffrey Donaldson, is honored to be the first solo practice plastic surgeon in central Ohio to receive Allergan Diamond Level status, which is reserved for the top 1% in sales of all accounts across the nation. Allergan is the health care company behind cosmetic surgery products such as BOTOX, Juvéderm, Latisse, and implants for breast augmentation. Previously in Columbus, this distinction has only been given to group practices that combine the productivity of two or more surgeons — very few single practice surgeons in the country achieve Diamond status.
It’s a testament to the ability and dedication of Dr. Donaldson and his staff that they have reached Diamond Level, which is attained by practices with a strong focus on cosmetic facial and breast surgery. Dr. Donaldson says about the products used in his practice: “Interest in plastic surgery has exploded in the last 10 years with the proliferation of minimally-invasive injections such as BOTOX and Juvéderm. These products have reached new patient populations and they help me to achieve excellent results. Similarly, breast implants are safer and more natural than ever before, and a new generation of patients are thrilled with their outcomes.”
It is often difficult to identify which surgeons have successful, high-volume practices, and this is one objective measure. Donaldson comments: “Having reached this volume of business with the manufacturer is an achievement to share with my current and prospective patients. They can now feel even more confident in the standard of services that my staff and I provide.”
Dr. Jeffrey Donaldson of Columbus, Ohio just co-authored a chapter in a Brazilian textbook about cosmetic surgery. Together with Dr. Foad Nahai of Paces Plastic Surgery in Atlanta, Georgia, he shared an innovative technique for performing brow lifts and blepharoplasty.
The traditional approach to browlifting requires long scalp incisions. Drs. Donaldson and Nahai, who are strong proponents of minimally invasive procedures, have described a small-scar browlift through a blepharoplasty (eyelid) incision. This typically results in less pain, shorter recovery time, a reduction in blood loss and no disruption to the hairline. Dr. Donaldson hopes that by publishing the intricacies of this procedure, it will allow other surgeons around the world to adopt this less invasive method.
Dr. Donaldson has authored several scholarly articles and presented his work at national and international meetings. The additional exposure of his innovative approach in the publication “Surgery of the Frontal Region” further contributes to this recognition.
Donaldson Plastic Surgery is proud to announce the addition of our newest staff member — Bobbie McKinley. Bobbie is a native to the Columbus area, raising three children here.
“I first met Dr. Donaldson at the surgery center, where I had the privilege of scrubbing in with him on a regular basis as a surgical technician. I have worked with many plastic surgeons over the years, but have never been more impressed by a surgeon’s skills in the O.R. or by his compassion at the bedside. I was thrilled by the opportunity to join Dr. Donaldson’s practice. Now I am with him and our patients in the office, as well as in the operating room, so it gives our patients real continuity in their care,” Bobbie explains.
Dr. Donaldson says: “Bobbie is absolutely wonderful! Patients who saw her around the time of surgery used to wish they could see her during their recovery — now they do! We feel lucky to have her on board, and patients feel the same.”
