Any facial surgery is a complex aesthetic procedure. The surgeon will have to ensure that the balance, harmony, integrity, and identity of the face are preserved during a facelift cosmetic surgery and produce safe and beautiful outcomes at the same time.
Facelift patients should choose a plastic surgeon cautiously as selecting an inexperienced or unqualified surgeon could lead to undesirable cosmetic results, surgical complications, and additional expenses on a revision procedure. In choosing a suitable plastic surgeon, the patient should keep several factors in mind.
If the patient seeks a particular type of facelift or a specific surgical technique, they should identify a surgeon with experience in these particular aspects. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Roger Tsai provides facelift to patients in West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding communities.
Why Select a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon?
Dr. Tsai has received certification from the prestigious American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). ABPS is the only plastic surgery board to be recognized by the eminent American Board of Medical Specialties. The board follows a stringent process of selection and only certifies a small number of surgeons annually.
When a patient selects a plastic surgeon certified by the ABPS, they receive an automatic guarantee that the surgeon would have received a certain minimum number of years of training in the area of plastic surgery.
Plastic surgeons certified by the ABPS will typically invest in heavily in quality standards and best practices, adopt the most advanced surgical techniques, pursue ongoing education, and follow the latest safety protocols to provide their patients with excellent and predictable surgical outcomes.
Focus on Individualization
The judicious Dr. Tsai is a strong proponent of customizing procedures such as facelift to match with the unique needs of the patient in order to create the best possible results. The facial features of each patient are different. The surgeon should account for these diverse features and incorporate the personal aesthetic needs and goals of the patient in the facelift surgical plan.
Dr. Tsai does not follow a cookie-cutter or off-the-rack approach to surgery taking the time to assess a patient’s medical condition, facial anatomy and aesthetic needs as well as encouraging them to share their innate aesthetic desires. He will create an individualized and comprehensive surgical plan on the basis of this feedback.
The committed Dr. Tsai balances the principles and science and art in a manner that helps produce attractive facelift outcomes that are not only aesthetically appealing, but also safe, natural looking, and sustainable.
Personal Characteristics and Attitude
The aesthetic results and safety are definitely important considerations in a procedure such as a facelift surgery. However, it is also vital that the patient feels comfortable with their plastic surgeon. It is an extremely personal decision to undergo a facelift.
Therefore, patients should select a surgeon who respects their privacy and aesthetic desires. During the initial consultation, the surgeon should ask the patient about the outcomes they seek as well as the exact procedures that interest them.
If the patient feels that the doctor is unwilling to customize the procedure to their unique needs, they may take a step back and reconsider their choice of plastic surgeon. In addition, a dedicated surgeon will never pressurize a patient to undergo more surgery than they actually need.
