Like many men and women, you’ve decided that you’re ready for a facelift. The next step in the decision-making process is choosing the right surgeon for you. You want someone that will provide you with the best possible outcome sans complications. But with thousands of surgeons nationwide, finding that perfect surgeon isn’t always as easy as it may seem.

While meeting a surgeon in-person is often the best way to get a feel for their experience, there are a few things you can look for. Today, we’ll take a look at several factors that may help you decide whether a surgeon is consultation-worthy.

*Individual Results May Vary.

#1: They Have Board-Certification

Board-certification is essential when choosing a facelift surgeon. You can be assured that your surgeon is committed to providing the best outcome with the most advanced surgical techniques. A board-certified surgeon follows a strict code of ethics and follows rigorous safety standards to ensure quality results without complications.

Dr. Grigoriy Mashkevich is a double board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon. He specializes in surgeries on the face, neck, and nose. He regularly performs revision facelift procedures for patients that haven’t been able to achieve their desired results through previous surgeries.

#2: They’re A Facial Contouring Specialist

You want a surgeon with a good understanding when it comes to facial anatomy. To ensure an optimal outcome with natural-looking results, look for a surgeon that regularly performs your specific procedure. Specialty Aesthetics Surgery is the premier facial plastic surgery center, and our highly-skilled surgeons perform several hundred facial surgeries each year.

#3: Your Surgeon Has Social Proof

Happy patients are a good indicator of a quality surgeon. Look for a surgeon that has plenty of great patient testimonials as well as before and after photos. Spend some time reviewing your surgeon’s social proof before deciding for yourself whether they may or may not be a good fit for you.

#4: They Offer Custom Procedures

A skilled surgeon understands there is no one-size-fits-all procedure for every man and woman. Your surgeon should take the time to listen to your concerns and speak with you about your goals before crafting an individualized treatment plan to help you reach them. Your facelift should be tailored according to your age, your gender, and your ethnicity.

#5: Someone You Feel Comfortable With

Lastly, you want a surgeon that makes you feel comfortable. They should be somebody you are able to speak openly with and can be honest about your personal concerns. You may be working closely with your surgeon and their staff for several months or in some cases upwards of a year or more before, during, and after your surgery.
