Choosing a facial plastic surgeon is a decision that will stay with you for the rest of your life. It is a good idea to begin the research process by asking friends and family for referrals. You may also decide to have more than one consultation to compare surgeons. When choosing who your surgeon will be, it is important to look for a few key items to ensure you are in the right place and the right operating hands.
First and foremost, is the doctor board-certified in facial plastic surgery? This will be the best display of his/her training in this specialty. In addition to being board-certified, an ASAPS membership ensures that he/she has considerable experience in cosmetic surgery. ASAPS membership is by invitation only, therefore, only doctors who fit the requirements will ever be considered.
Make sure your plastic surgeon regularly performs this cosmetic surgery
Experienced plastic surgeons generally perform a variety of cosmetic surgeries on a regular basis. Ask your doctor what procedures he/she performs regularly, and how often he/she performs facelift surgery. You want to be sure that he/she is performing the procedure on a regular basis.
While experience should be first on your list of requirements it shouldn’t be everything. Any successful relationship depends on good communication and understanding. Trust in your doctor and his/her team is of the utmost importance. The right doctor and team will be there for you at all times beginning with your consultation and continuing through post-operative follow up appointments. Having a good relationship with your doctor will enhance your facelift surgery experience as you will have a full team joining you on your journey back to a youthful look!
