Jonathan Kulbersh, MD - Carolina Facial Plastics
My ears used to protrude from my head, and I was even bullied because of it as a child. I never really cared about it, but it has bothered me more in recent years for some reason. I am now in my mid-20s, and finally decided to review my treatment options. When looking for the right surgeon, I have to say that I was pretty picky. I knew there were minimally invasive otoplasty options available, which was important to me. After doing some research online, it seemed to me Dr. Kulbersh of Carolina Facial Plastics was the best ear pinning surgeon in Charlotte, so I decided to contact him. My consultation was great. Dr. Kulbersh was easy going and friendly, and answered all of my questions in great detail. I left the consultation feeling confident about my choice of surgeon, especially because of his background as an ENT surgeon. For some reason, his background made a lot of sense to me, and it made me feel more confident about the results. It has now been several months since my procedure, and I absolutely love my results. All of my friends and family keep telling me how good I look, and I am even getting more positive attention from people I do not know! The results are so natural; it is almost hard to believe I had surgery. Although I was uncertain about the procedure, I am much more comfortable today, and feel so much better. I am very glad I did it, and would like to thank one of the best facial plastic surgeons in Charlotte for the results; Dr. Kulbersh :)

Tips & Advices
Plastic surgeons can be affiliated with hospitals, but it is not a rule. There are hospitals that have comprehensive plastic surgery wings that some surgeons are affiliated with, but affiliation tends to align more with private plastic surgery clinics than with hospitals.
There are variables on an initial consultation, but expect the doctor to review your medical history and discuss the procedure, , its pros and cons of the procedure, surgical and non-surgical options, risks, cost, insurance coverage, and recovery time. Some provide computer imaging of what you will look like pre and post-surgery.
Many doctors provide free consultations for clients, but it is not required.
A plastic surgeon does not have to be board certified. Board certification sets the minimum competency requirements to treat and diagnose patients.
To become a plastic surgeon, one must earn a medical degree, gain a medical license and enroll in a residency and fellowship programs. A plastic surgeon is highly skilled and trained in surgical procedures, but their training has an emphasis on tissue transfer, body contouring and laser surgery, skills associated with plastic surgery.
