What is a Workers Compensation Plastic Surgeon?

A workers compensation plastic surgeon is a plastic surgeon who is able to treat and/or evaluate injuries which have occurred as the result of an accident sustained at work and which requires a plastic surgeon for treatment, surgery, or an expert medical opinion.

Does Workers Compensation cover plastic surgery?

Contrary to popular belief, not all plastic surgery is cosmetic. A portion of the plastic surgery field is required to live and function at a normal capacity. 

For example, certain traumatic incidents can adversely affect the body’s ability to perform basic functions, such as talking, smiling, or eating. Plastic surgery can often improve these functional impairments. 

Will Workers Compensation cover plastic surgery?

 If plastic surgery is required due to an on-the-job injury, it is quite possible that the carrier may pay for the surgery.  For example, if you have scarring after burns, had previous cosmetic surgery, which was compromised because of the trauma, experienced a deep laceration, there is the distinct possibility that Workers Compensation will cover.

What types of work related injuries require a plastic surgeon?

The following work related injuries may require the treatment, surgery, or expert medical opinion by a plastic surgeon experienced with workers’ compensation cases:

  • Burns
  • Nasal fractures
  • Facial fractures
  • Open wounds
  • Wounds that will not heal
  • Soft tissue hand injuries
  • Skin ulcers
  • Scars
  • Changes in skin color from accidents
  • Post-traumatic deformity

What is a Workers Compensation Plastic Surgeon Expert Medical Advisor?

An Expert Medical Advisor is contracted by the state of Florida (the Division of Workers Compensation) to provide an expert medical opinion. If a doctor is an Expert Medical Advisor (EMA), it is a very good indication that the doctor is very experienced and respected in his/her field, because to become qualified as an EMA requires a certain amount of experience and certifications. As an Expert Medical Advisor for Plastic Surgery, Dr. Zaydon is often called upon by the Division of Workers’ Compensation to provide expert medical opinions for litigated cases.

Dr. Thomas J. Zaydon has been invited as a speaker at the 2021 Workers Compensation Convention which will be held between on the 22nd – 25th of August, 2021, in Orlando, Florida.
