What to know about Facelift Surgery
Tips on selecting a surgeon for your facelift surgery
1. Research your options.
Start with people you know. Ask friends who have had a facelift and talk to them about their overall experience.
2. Check credentials.
Researching your Plastic Surgeon is important. Review and check for: Plastic surgery training, board certification, hospital privileges, experience and professional society memberships. If a physician claims to be “board certified”, make sure you learn the specific name of the certifying board. Our surgeons are Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
The only Plastic Surgery Boards approved by the State of Florida are the “American Board of Plastic Surgery” and the “American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery”.
3. Setting up an initial consultation.
