Questions to Ask your Facelift Plastic Surgeon

by Dr. Daniel Lin

Questions to Ask your Facelift Plastic Surgeon | Pasadena | BreaA facelift is one of the more popular cosmetic surgery procedures, which can take several years off an individual’s face and restore a more youthful facial appearance. To minimize the risks in surgery, the patient should choose the best possible facelift surgeon after careful deliberation. They should freely ask questions and clear their doubts and concerns about the surgery during the pre-op consultation.

A well-informed candidate will be able to make better decisions about facelift and will feel more confident about it. They should know about the surgeon’s qualifications and professional standing as well as various aspects of the actual procedure.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Lin provides facelift to patients in West Covina, Inland Empire, San Gabriel Valley, Chino, Rowland Heights, Baldwin Park, Whittier, Brea, Arcadia, Pasadena, Diamond Bar, and other cities in Southern California.
