If you are considering a facelift, it is essential to choose the right surgeon. The quality of your results and the safety of your procedure will all depend on the experience level of your surgeon, and how they approach your facelift. No two facelifts are alike; you need a surgeon who will carefully assess your needs as they relate to your unique facial structure and your personal cosmetic goals.
Board certification is the first and most important trait you should look for in a facelift surgeon. All surgeons with a valid medical license are certified by a general medical board, but you want a surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). The ABPS requires all plastic surgeons who apply for certification to meet exceptionally high standards in knowledge, technical ability, and hands-on training. The ABPS also enforces regular re-certification to make sure member surgeons stay up-to-date with the latest techniques and technology in plastic surgery.
At Marietta Plastic Surgery, all five of our Atlanta plastic surgeons are board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
It is also important to look at the results that a facelift surgeon has been able to achieve for other patients. Most plastic surgeons have before-and-after galleries online that demonstrate their skill and what you can expect from your chosen procedure. During your facelift consultation, you can ask for more examples of results, as many patients do not want their photos posted on the website but you may be able to see them at the office. You should also ask detailed questions about the surgeon’s background, experience, training, and credentials.
