A facelift is an important decision, and not one that you should rush into. Consider your options; ask your friends and family for references, research the Internet, and of course seek out a consultation on your facelift. This blog post gives some tips on selecting the best cosmetic surgeon in San Francisco for your facelift procedure. (Note: many patients confuse plastic surgeons and cosmetic surgeons, though these are technically different).
Selecting the Best Surgeon for a Facelift
These days there are many options for facelifts. You can use a big chain that rolls out facelifts, you can go to a cosmetic surgeon or to a plastic surgeon. Even amongst San Francisco’s cosmetic surgeons, there are many choices.
The first tip to selecting the best cosmetic surgeon for your facelift is to do your research. Don’t just go where your friends went, don’t just go to the first doctor you visit – shop around, and do your research. This is a big decision. Second, investigate the doctor who will actually do your facelift procedure. Our Dr. Rabinovich, for example, is a physician with advanced training in Facial Plastic Surgery as well as Cranio-Maxillofacial Surgery. Educated in both medicine (MD, SUNY Downstate College of Medicine) and dentistry (DDS, Columbia University) and practicing in San Francisco, Dr. Rabinovich is an expert in Facial Cosmetic Surgery, San Francisco Facelifts, Corrective Jaw Surgery (Orthognathic and TMJ) and Facial Reconstruction (Trauma and Cleft Lip / Palate deformities) as well as nose surgery. He successfully performed hundreds of facial surgical procedures, conducted clinical research and authored a number of medical articles.
Third, be sure to investigate with a consultation. Meet with your surgeon and get a sense of whether he will tailor your facelift to your individual needs and situation. Choose someone who will spend the time with you in that initial consultation to create a custom plan for your needs.
