Are the surgeons at Modern Surgical Arts of Denver board certified?

Yes, our cosmetic plastic surgeons Dr. Zwiebel and Dr. Dastoury are board certified.

Dr. Zwiebel is board certified through the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS).

Dr. Dastoury is double board certified through the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery (ABCS) and secondly the American Board of Maxillofacial Surgery (ABOMS). Dr. Dastoury also has extensive training in conscious sedation and general anesthesia. He holds certification in general anesthesia in the state of Colorado and California.

Patients seek out a doctor who is board certified within the field in which they are practicing. This is why our patients can rest assured that their surgeons are properly trained and experienced in plastic or cosmetic surgery respectively. Board certification to us means a level of prestige, dedication to education, training, and certification.


What’s the difference between a cosmetic surgeon and a plastic surgeon?

Cosmetic surgery is a subspecialty dedicated to the sole purpose of performing all aspects of aesthetic surgery only. Cosmetic elective procedures are performed by doctors from a variety of medical fields, including plastic surgeons. Plastic surgeons are trained to do reconstructive surgery and may perform cosmetic surgery, as well.

Please refer to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery site for more details on Cosmetic vs Plastic surgery.


Where will my surgery take place?

At Modern Surgical Arts of Denver we make the experience as safe and convenient as possible for our patients by offering treatment at the same location as the consult, surgery, and post-op visits. Our patients can look forward to being treated at our up-to date facility, which is an accredited outpatient ambulatory surgery center certified through the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).

Our center is also affiliated with our nearby local private hospital. AAAHC-accredited ambulatory surgery facilities must meet stringent national standards for equipment, operating room safety, personnel and surgeon credentials. This accrediting program provides patients with an assurance of safety and quality in all aspects of an outpatient surgery experience.


Does my surgeon have hospital privileges and how does it contribute to my care?

Yes, both Dr. Zwiebel and Dr. Dastoury have hospital privileges at a nearby hospital for all of the procedures they provide at our outpatient ambulatory surgery center. Our surgeons provide continuity of care for all of our patients to the best of their ability from the initial consultation, to surgery, to treating potential complications.

Having hospital privileges is an essential resource for our surgeons. As with any surgery, managing potential complications is an essential part of the treatment process when necessary. Cosmetic surgery is an elective procedure and safety is our number one priority and we want to have all of the resources available to provide the best care for our patients.


Who will be responsible for anesthesia during my procedure?

Our patients are comforted by knowing their anesthesia services are provided by a dedicated and experienced licensed anesthesia provider. Our Certified Anesthetists have extensive experience in the Denver area within the hospital and outpatient settings. The team at Front Range Anesthesia has built its practice around delivering safe high quality and evidence-based anesthesia care.

Our patients have a designated licensed anesthetist and given ample time before the day of surgery to discuss any questions or concerns. This enables each of our surgery patients to have individualized anesthesia care that will best suit their needs.

Our medical director Kamran Dastoury, MD has extensive training and certification in anesthesia, which also provides an added layer of supervision and safety for the overall care of our surgical patients.


How do the surgeons and staff respond to all patients’ concerns to make them feel comfortable?

Our surgeons and providers are available for comprehensive consultations focusing on the patient’s area of concern. We provide telehealth (Video or Phone) consultations from the comfort of your home. We are available for complementary follow up for secondary consults as needed for any questions or concerns that may arise. We have patient testimonials and reviews online so potential patients can relate to our existing patients’ experiences. Also, our surgeons are readily available for questions and concerns regarding post op care for our patients 7 days per week.


Patients want the right procedure for the look they desire. How do we create a comprehensive treatment plan?

Our surgeons will educate our patients on multiple options and modalities to guide them towards the best options that are right for them. For example, utilizing radiofrequency technology may offer a reasonable non-surgical alternative to surgery and provide similar results without a large incision in the right circumstances. Another example, we also have advanced imaging technology (Vectra) for evaluating the proposed look for breast augmentation, breast lift, and rhinoplasty procedures.Thus, we provide state of the art and innovative technology so there will be no need to look elsewhere.
