Great facilities, professional, human approach and, last but not least, top medical team and equipment. These are the reasons to choose the OB Care plastic surgery clinic. And not just as clients. It is these reasons that bring the new plastic surgeon Dr Boris Jegorov, who will expand the local two-member team of doctors – specialists to OB Care.

What does becoming a member of the OB Care team mean to you and why did you choose this particular clinic?

Joining OB Care is not a step into the unknown for me. I've already had the opportunity to attend the clinic as a non-certified doctor, so I have an idea of what I'm getting into. There are several reasons why I chose it. Probably the main one is my colleague Dr. Martin Skála, whom I already met during my time at the Clinic of Plastic Surgery at the Bulovka University Hospital. He is an honest person who can be relied on, and it is important to have such people around, probably not only in medicine. During my visits to the clinic, I also got to know the other staff and I really liked their approach, which is very human and professional. The great facilities of the clinic also play a large part in this. So far, I have only seen such equipment as here in top teaching hospitals.

You have already worked in several plastic surgery clinics. What procedures will be your specialty here?

We are a small team at OB Care, so I think it will mainly be about agreeing with my colleagues. Few doctors do everything at the highest possible level, and even in our field, doctors specialize.
As the main content of my work, I would welcome the opportunity to devote myself to full-scale breast surgeries, body contouring and, in the future, a facelift.

So far, you have mostly dealt with breast reconstructions and operations for oncology patients. How do you think the procedures at OB Care will be different?

I believe the main difference will be the compromises. For patients who proceed to reconstructive surgery, the expectation is generally of an improvement in the current condition and the patient's needs are relatively clear. Aesthetic surgery is primarily about healthy people, in whom one tries to find, for each one separately, his "golden grail". Each of them has their own needs, priorities and ideas, and sometimes guessing what would help them feel simply great is a bit of a challenge.

In what ways will they be similar?

I think the main thing is to listen to what the patient really wants. Although we can see various shortcomings and sometimes we would start somewhere completely different, in our field the main need is the patient. And the goal is for every patient to be satisfied at the end.

What is needed for this?

The alpha and omega of our field is proper communication with the patient. The patient must be given detailed instructions, and even though it is cosmetic surgery, it must be emphasized that every operation has its risks.

The right doctor heals

the body, but also

listens to the soul.

As a surgeon, you have already worked twice in developing countries – once in Zambia and once in Kenya. Did this experience affect you in any way?

I think that everyone who has ever been treated anywhere in the Czech Republic should see what healthcare looks like in third world countries. One would find that the health that we take for granted in our country is definitely not a given in these places. It has a completely different price there and I would like people to realize what a privilege we have over them and appreciate it.

Why did you choose plastic surgery out of all the options a surgeon has?

I found myself in it. It is a field that is so diverse that everyone has enough space to develop in it. What makes our field different, in my view, is perfectionism and the obsession with perfection. No one is perfect, but trying to at least come close to it is a great challenge.

What do you enjoy most about plastic and aesthetic surgery?

It is necessary to realize that there is a big difference between plastic and aesthetic surgery. Plastic surgery could be described in layman's terms as a car park – you have many different models, shapes, sizes and brands. Whereas, in this context, cosmetic surgery is just the car you want to drive out of that parking lot with. The goal of aesthetic surgery is to choose the right car and adjust it to the patient's needs.

Do you have a professional credo?

Here I would take the liberty of quoting my grandfather, who was also a surgeon: “A doctor should never be heartless. He should do his craft well, but he should also understand the psyche of the patient, who undergoes the given procedure."

You have interesting hobbies – yachting and diving. How did you get to them?

Thanks to your father and grandfather. My grandfather was a yachtsman who even built boats himself, and I got diving from my dad, who, like me, loves water in all its forms.

Do diving and surgery have anything in common?

Paradoxically, more than one can imagine. The basis for both activities is calmness and compliance with a few basic rules. Panicking always leads to a mistake. And just as one should never dive alone, neither should one be alone in the operating theatre. That's why it's important to always have people around you who you can trust and rely on.
