Facetime with barb
I began working with an incredible plastic surgeon back in 1985. Dr. John Griffin trusted me as a young nurse to work by his side. He taught me all facets of plastic surgery. I assisted him in surgery, did pre- and post-operative teaching, made rounds in the hospital and eventually began injecting dermal fillers. Our practice evolved into mostly aesthetic surgical procedures and I began injecting neuro-modulators (Botox) and dermal fillers as a big part of my nursing practice. For the past 14 years I have also enjoyed working as an Independent Contractor teaching other practitioners the art of facial rejuvenation. I have been a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgical Nurses (ASPSN) since 1985. I have served in many capacities for ASPSN, and was President of this organization from 2003-2004. I am a Certified Plastic Surgical Nurse (CPSN) and a Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist (CANS).
Yes, it is an art. Customizing a facial rejuvenation plan for each patient has proven to be the best tool for achieving optimal results. I love to discuss a treatment plan with each patient; recognize their priorities, educate them on the appropriate products, and then, together we formulate a plan that best suits their needs.
