What to look for in a facial plastic surgeon

If you are considering facial plastic surgery, it’s important to choose a specialist that takes a multifaceted approach to facial plastic surgery. This is essential in ensuring that you get the best outcome possible, and superior care. So what are some of the qualities to look for in a facial plastic surgeon?

If you are choosing a facial plastic surgeon below are some of the important things to look for:

  • Board certification
    Certification by the American Board of Facial and Reconstructive Surgery is the best indicator that a surgeon has the necessary training in facial plastic surgery. Additional certification by the American Board of Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery is also important, as it signifies their expertise in head and neck surgery. A double board certified facial plastic surgeon is therefore well qualified to perform your plastic surgery procedure.
  • Experience
    It’s generally recognized that surgeons that have performed more surgeries get better outcomes, so always choose a surgeon with extensive experience. There is simply no substitute for years of surgical practice. Facial plastic surgeons that have a lot of experience and use advanced techniques, are able to offer a variety of treatment options.
  • Excellent Results
    An experienced facial plastic surgeon should have a host of ‘before & after’ photographs of their actual patients that you can browse through. Since these photos represent typical results, they give prospective patients some idea of the type of outcome they can reasonably expect.

You also want to choose a plastic surgeon that you feel comfortable discussing your aesthetic goals and expectations with.
