Integrating Cosmetic Surgery into the OMS Practice


Existing oral and maxillofacial surgical practices wanting to expand the scope of their practice frequently consider cosmetic surgery as an opportunity. Factors influencing this change include an unfulfilled niche in the regional market. Decreasing reimbursement in traditional areas of surgical scope like orthognathic surgery motivates surgeons to look for elective procedures such as cosmetic surgery to enhance practice profitability. Mature surgeons looking to reinvigorate their scope of practice often develop an interest in cosmetic surgery to enhance their enjoyment of the daily routine. Established practices may include cosmetic surgery to broaden their scope to appeal to new surgeons seeking association with a dynamic OMS practice. Many strategies to integrate cosmetic surgery into an OMS practice exist and will be discussed in this symposium.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this symposium, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify strategies to expand their scope of practice to include cosmetic surgery and locate training opportunities to develop a cosmetic surgery practice that blends with overall practice goals and patient safety.
  2. Develop an in office surgery center for cosmetic procedures utilizing general anesthesia and its proper protocols.
  3. Develop a methodology of analysis of economic factors to enable cost effective, safe delivery of cosmetic surgery in the OMS practice.
