Taking the time to research and carefully choose a plastic surgeon for your facial cosmetic procedure will help to ensure optimal results and minimize the risk of complications.
To help get you started, consider these essential tips for picking a facial plastic surgeon.
Check for Credentials and Experience
Facial plastic surgery procedures are some of the most complex and delicate surgeries. Be sure your plastic surgeon is not only board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons, but also has ample experience performing facial cosmetic procedures such as facelifts, neck lifts and brow lifts.
Bring Questions to Your Consultations
Once you’ve narrowed down your search by looking at credentials, online reviews and getting word-of-mouth recommendations, schedule a consultation with your top two or three picks. Before your appointment, jot down a list of questions to ask at each one to help you gauge which could be the best fit for you.
Some questions to include on your list might be:
- How many facial plastic surgeries have you performed?
- Am I a good candidate for this particular procedure?
- Which surgical technique(s) do you recommend for me and why?
- What can I expect during recovery?
Go with Your GutIn addition to checking all the boxes like having the right credentials and experience, getting rave reviews online, and having great before and after photos, a good facial plastic surgeon will make you feel confident and comfortable working with them.
You should never feel pressured to book a plastic surgery procedure at your consultation.
So even though a particular plastic surgeon might look perfect on paper, make sure you have a good gut feeling about this particular practice before making your decision.
