Kaylyn Plum, M.M.S., PA-C is a Physician Assistant based in New York State who has been certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants. Originally having graduated from the University of Florida with a bachelor’s degree, Kaylyn went on to graduate with honors from the Florida-based Nova Southeastern University, attaining a master’s degree in Medical Science.
While working toward her bachelor’s degree at the University of Florida, Kaylyn operated in the institution’s health care division – referred to as “Shands” at the time – as a fixture in its Burn Intensive Care Unit. Her procedures involved evaluating and healing patients’ burns and rehabilitating them; over the course of the two years that she spent medically treating burn victims, Dr. Plum discovered that her primary interests in her career lie in medical aesthetics and skin health.
Kaylyn provides post-operative incision site care to all patients throughout their recovery process to achieve the best possible aesthetic result. Kaylyn is able to cater post-operative treatment plans to the patient’s individual skin type and needs, and is an expert in incision site fading.
Kaylyn’s procedures encompass various forms of skin care without involving surgery, such as ultherapy. Through microdermabrasion, she applies chemical peels in order to resurface skin superficially and enhance its appearance, and she uses other systems such as Pellevé, Eclipse MicroPen, Fractora, and CoolSculpting to achieve other aesthetic results such as scar treatment and fat reduction. She applies the appropriate solution to the individual needs of each distinct patient and proceeds to assist that patient’s recovery process after the procedure is complete.
Dr. Plum now works with Dr. Douglas Steinbrech as its resident specialist in post-operative skin care. Her history tending to wounds and applying skin enhancement works in tandem with her drive toward perfection so that any given patient can receive the exact aesthetic outcome that he or she desires. Both the quality of her work and her willingness to morally support her patients both during the operative process and after it derive from her personal belief that everyone should be entitled to highly professional levels of skin care. She also believes that the value of her work is defined by how a person’s external appearance influences his or her self-esteem.
