Although the magazine noted that "quite a few categories got a good shake-up this year,"Dr. Spence took the top spot in Orlando plastic surgery for the sixth year in a row. "To be named top plastic surgeon again by residents of a community that calls itself 'The City Beautiful' is indeed a high honor,"said Dr. Spence.

Another key to good patient relationships, Dr. Spence feels, is to understand not just patients' physical attributes and aesthetic desires, but to learn about their lives as well. "As a trained, experienced surgeon, it's easy for me to understand 'how' to deliver results. It's more challenging, and just as vital, to understand 'why.'" Knowing patient motivations helps ensure they are candidates for the procedures they're considering, Dr. Spence explained. It's also a good idea to give thought to 'when' it's the right time for a patient to have a procedure. "We tend to be quite active here in Orlando, and plastic surgery patients sometimes underestimate or overestimate recovery time. When I know about the demands of their jobs and families, I can help them plan.”

Workshops he conducts during the year give prospective patients the information they need to consider all their alternatives and decide whether to pursue cosmetic surgery in Orlando (http://www.spencemd.com/
