How to Pick the Best Facial Surgeon

If you find yourself in need of a facial surgeon, it’s essential to choose the right professional for the job.  Be sure to select a surgeon with the training and experience to deliver the best possible outcome.  So how should you pick the best facial surgeon?

When choosing a facial surgeon you want to consider the following:

  1. Board certification

Certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) verifies that the surgeon is appropriately qualified to perform facial plastic surgery.  Surgeons certified by the ABPS have undergone the requisite education and training, and are held to high standards within their profession.  The surgeon should also meet criteria relating to patient care and satisfaction, peer reviews, and publications.  

  • Experience

Select a facial surgeon that has a lot of experience performing the procedure you’re looking to have done.  Surgeons that have been doing facial plastic surgery for many years develop specialized expertise through that experience, and are therefore able to deliver good results.

  • Portfolio of Before-and-after photos

Be sure to review the surgeon’s portfolio of before-and-after photos of similar patients who have undergone the procedure you’re interested in.  This will also help you assess their expertise, as well as their sense of beauty and aesthetic style.

  • Customer Service

Choose a surgeon that takes the time to listen to your aesthetic goals, and understands the results you are looking for.   In addition, the surgeon and their support staff should make you feel welcome and valued.
