Selecting the Right Surgeon

In any advanced cosmetic surgery procedure such as facelift, it is important to look for the surgeon’s specialized expertise in procedures related to the face. Surgeons with focused training in facial procedures will have a deep understanding of the intricate characteristics and nuances of the face, and will be able to produce customized results to suit the unique facial anatomy of a patient.


Check the Board Certification

For a patient choosing a facelift surgeon, it is firstly important to assess whether the surgeon has been board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Furthermore, a surgeon specializing in facial surgery would have undergone specialized residency training for head and neck surgery as well as facial plastic surgery. After clearing the necessary tests, the surgeon may be qualified as a board certified facial plastic surgeon.

Many surgeons who may present themselves as trained plastic surgeons may not necessarily have been board certified by ABPS, and may not have undertaken specialized secondary training in facial plastic surgery or been specially designated as a facial plastic surgeon. These are critical distinctions that a discerning patient should be able to make while making a choice of a surgeon for facelift procedure.

He receives patients from West Covina, Inland Empire, San Gabriel Valley, Chino, Rowland Heights, Baldwin Park, Whittier, Brea, Arcadia, Pasadena, Diamond Bar, and nearby areas.


Attributes of a Surgeon

In addition to looking at the education qualifications, training and experience of the facial plastic surgeon, the patient should also feel confident of other key attributes that will usually be present in the surgeon’s personality.

  • Professional demeanor, candid and clear in addressing the patient’s queries, and easy conversationalist
  • Focusing as much on the health, safety and sustainability aspects as on the art and aesthetics of facelift surgery
  • Encouraging the patient to share their concerns, aesthetic aspirations, and doubts, and providing adequate and satisfactory answers
  • Having an instinctive ability to understand facial balance, form and proportion, and an artistic sensibility to create desirable outcomes
  • Passionate about transforming the lives of the patients through facial plastic surgery

A fabulous surgeon will also have various patient testimonials to their credit, describing the positive experiences of past patients who have received facial plastic surgery procedures. The surgeon will also be prepared to share before and after photos of previous patients who have received the same surgery earlier. The use of digital technology in this industry is just incredible in terms of showing potential patients before and after photos.
