Q: Type of surgeon for facelift?
I’m looking to have a facelift done and I’m not sure how to find the best surgeon in my area. Can you tell me if a Facial Plastic Surgeon is best for this procedure? It seems like in my city they have done the largest number of face procedures.
A: Thanks for this question. While seemingly confusing, the answer is simple. Choose a Board Certified Surgeon with the personality, experience, skills and staff you trust. They must offer non-surgical, minimally invasive and surgical options to provide you with a match for your needs. The 2 main specialties are Plastic Surgery and ENT Facial Plastic Surgery. There are experts in Maxillofacial Surgery as well. No two MD’s are equal and you must consult, educate yourself and select which is best for accomplishing your need. I wish you all the best in this journey.
