Get Recommendations from Friends and Family
If you know someone who had a face lift, talk to them about their surgery and whether they would recommend their plastic surgeon. This is a great starting place, but it should never be the ending point for your decision-making process. Here are some important factors to take into account about your friend's recommendation:
Asking these questions will help you decide how good the recommendation is for your purposes.
Do Some Research
Nowadays, the Internet gives you access to more details about plastic surgery practices than ever before. Ideally, a quality plastic surgery practice will use its website as a tool for helping you to make informed decisions about plastic surgery procedures, and in the process will tell many details about the practice and its surgeons. Don't forget to look at the websites of surgeons recommended by friends and family. When looking at the website you should consider:
Using these criteria should allow you to narrow down your number of potential surgeons to a manageable list.
Once you have a short list of surgeons you're considering, it's time to schedule consultations. You may want to meet with a few surgeons before committing to one. During your personal consultation, you should get answers to a number of questions:
Once you have evaluated all these questions, you can select the surgeon that you feel comfortable working with. Remember, you don't have to make a decision. You have only one face--don't risk it by working with a surgeon that makes you feel anything but fully confident. If your first round of considering surgeons doesn't yield one you like, start again. Your successful face lift results will last for years, it's okay if finding the right surgeon takes a few more months.At The Austin-Weston Center for Cosmetic Surgery, we invite you to consider our practice for your facelift.
