Any facial surgery is a relatively complex cosmetic procedure. The plastic surgeon will have to ensure that the harmony, balance, integrity, and identity of the face remain intact while producing results that are safe and aesthetically appealing.
In the hands of a less trained or inexperienced plastic surgeon, a facelift surgery could lead to unappealing outcomes, post-operative complications, and future expenses on revision procedures for the patient. The patient should be mindful of various factors when choosing an appropriate plastic surgeon.
If the patient is considering a specific type of facelift cosmetic surgery technique, they should choose a surgeon with training and experience in these specific areas.

Selecting the Right Surgeon
The skill and experience of the surgeon in the field of facelift cosmetic surgery is a vital factor when considering this advanced procedure. Prior to making a final choice, the patient should ensure that the surgeon has the necessary expertise in facial surgeries.
A surgeon who has dedicated training in facial surgery will understand the nuances and characteristics of the face in a more precise manner and will customize the procedure to offer results that are targeted to achieve the patient’s specific goals.
Board Certified Facial Surgeon
It is important for facelift cosmetic surgery patients to know whether the surgeon is board certified in facial plastic surgery. A surgeon who is certified by the board would have undergone detailed training for neck and head surgery in addition to facial plastic surgery.
After this rigorous training and clearing comprehensive written and oral exams, the surgeon will be certified by the board in facial plastic surgery.
Many surgeons who claim to be trained in facial plastic surgeries may not be certified by the board in the particular area of head and neck surgery. Therefore, it is important for the patient to consider these factors when selecting a plastic surgeon for facelift.
