Undergoing facial plastic surgery is an exciting and incredibly rewarding experience. My advice to patients considering facial plastic surgery is for them to do their research. It is important to find a surgeon that is Board Certified either in Plastic Surgery or in Head and Neck Surgery with fellowship training in Facial Plastic Surgery. Choose someone that is focused on the types of surgery that you want rather than someone who dabbles in the specific procedures. Remember that deciding on your surgeon involves more than just the day of surgery–it is the start of a new relationship. That relationship should primarily be founded on trust, care and comfort. But it should also certainly involve fun and excitement.
