This blog series answers some of the most common questions asked by our patients during our comprehensive pre-surgery consultations. Chicago’s Gold Coast Plastic Surgery is proud to offer some of the best and most experienced facial plastic surgeons in the world, offering invaluable expertise and artistry, and delivering impeccable, natural-looking results for every patient.
Facelift surgery is a serious surgical intervention. Improperly performed facelift surgeries can result in aesthetically unpleasing outcomes and medical complications, so finding a highly experienced, board-certified facial plastic surgeon is critical to ensuring positive outcomes. Here are a few things to consider when deciding upon the best minimal scar tissue facelift surgeon.
- Look for specialists. Just because a plastic surgeon is board certified doesn’t mean that the surgeon is experienced and knowledgeable about the complex and delicate structures of the face and neck. Unfortunately, many plastic surgeons who perform facelift surgery don’t specialize – and aren’t certified – in facial plastic surgery. Look for a surgeon who holds certifications in facial plastic surgery and has training in otolaryngology.
- Have consultations with more than one surgeon. It is very important to find a compassionate plastic surgeon who understands your needs, fears, and goals. Finding a good fit for you will help you feel comfortable, so you won’t feel undue stress or anxiety about having the procedure performed. Don’t feel as though you have to go with the first physician you visit.
- Don’t shop for bargains. No one wants to pay more for anything than they absolutely must. Nevertheless, when it comes to plastic surgery, if you want the best, it comes with a price tag commiserate with the surgeon’s credentials and experience, and with the complexity of the procedure. The price range among excellent surgeons will vary only slightly depending upon the region. If you find a surgeon who charges substantially lower rates, avoid him/her at all costs.
