Get Natural Looking Results from Facelift

shutterstock_86694538With the magnificent results that plastic surgery can provide, it’s no surprise that thousands of men and women seek cosmetic treatment every year. However, some people are still hesitant about undergoing a procedure like a facelift in fear of looking “done” afterwards. If you’re considering a facelift and want to eliminate signs of aging while achieving a youthful and natural appearance, there’s a few questions that you should definitely ask about your surgeon as well as his or her facility and technique before your procedure.

How experienced is your surgeon?

Did you know that any person with a medical license can legally perform plastic surgery? This is why it is important to be sure that your surgeon has extensive experience performing facelift surgery and that he or she is a member of The American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). Being certified by The ABPS means that your surgeon has been through extensive training and testing by a council of certified surgeons. In addition to board certification, most experienced surgeons will have rewards and accolades to demonstrate their skill level.

Certified by the ABPS, Dr. Messa has achieved Chairman Status, one of Medicis’ most prestigious awards (2013, 2014), and he has received Patient’s Choice Awards (2010, 2011, 2013) among several other accolades.

Where does your surgeon perform facelift surgery?

Where your surgeon carries out their facelift procedures is just as important as their experience level. Before undergoing facelift surgery, make sure that your surgeon performs in a clean and accredited facility.

Dr. Messa performs all of his facelift procedures at his state-of-the-art practice, which is accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF). This ensures that all of the procedures are performed with the utmost safety and efficiency.

What facelift method does your surgeon utilize?

While all facelift techniques improve the face, some methods can be more beneficial to you depending on the areas and extent of improvement that you need.

When some surgeons perform a facelift procedure, they only tighten the skin, which can result in a less natural facial appearance. Unlike these surgeons, Dr. Messa tightens the skin as well as the underlying muscle tissue to give patients the most natural results possible.
