Finding Your Facelift Surgeon: Board Certification and Specialization
When it comes to aesthetic enhancement surgery, we are currently in the midst of one of the most popular times in history. More men and women than ever before are willing to go under he knife for elective surgical enhancement. And while much of this is due to the rise of social media, and procedures like the Brazilian Butt Lift, leading more women to speak openly about work they’ve had. According to Dr. Richard Swift, the best plastic surgeon Brooklyn has to offer, the fact that people are speaking about cosmetic surgery openly these days has had an effect across the board, even for a facial plastic surgery procedure like the facelift. As the top facelift specialist Brooklyn has in practice, Dr. Swift and his team are performing more of these procedures than they have in years, and while procedures like breast augmentation and the hype behind BBL culture are in the forefront, we have quietly seen a lot more women, and even men willing to have facelifts, and be open about their experience. While this openness has been great for the industry overall making surgery more accessible, it has also led to many unscrupulous individuals to pose as surgeons and are now taking advantage of would-be patients and offering them surgical procedure for insanely cheap prices. This has led to many patients experiencing terrible side effects and physical and mental damage as a result. Some of these individuals are former surgeons who might have lost their licenses and certifications, while others might be nurse practitioners posing as surgical experts. They will often recommend procedures at low end prices, and while a lot of them will offer odd, variations to these popular procedures for patients that can’t afford an official facelift or BBL, some of the more brazen individuals are actually performing full fledged body and facial plastic surgery without being licensed or certified. According to Dr. Swift, the best plastic surgeon Brighton Beach has to offer, this is why its important for patients looking to have a facelift done, to find the right surgeon and do their research and make sure they go with someone who is reputable – no amount of savings is worth your health and wellness. In this article, we will be going over two of the most integral pieces of the puzzle, board certification and specialization, when finding the right surgeon for you.
Start With Board Certification
According to Dr. Swift, the top facelift specialist Brooklyn has in practice, this goes for all aesthetic enhancement procedures, surgical or nonsurgical, but especially for something as delicate as a facelift. Your face is the first thing people see, and your natural appearance is far better the way nature intended it, versus the side effects that are possible when getting botched by the wrong surgeon. The first place to start is to make sure you are going with someone who is board certified to perform cosmetic surgery. As the best plastic surgeon Brighton Beach has in practice, Dr. Swift is adamant that board certification is an absolute must! Even if someone was the best surgeon ever, and lost their certification, you are taking a huge risk to have them perform your surgery as it is illegally being done. The first thing to do is to find a surgeon who is board certified in plastic surgery or facial plastic surgery. As the top facelift specialist Brighton Beach has in practice, Dr. Swift will tell you that being certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery or ABFPRS, shows that the surgeon is trained and committed to being a top facial plastic surgery doctor. Also if they are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, American Board of Otolaryngology, or both boards it means that they have at least completed a fellowship in facial plastic surgery, passed a 2-day exam focusing on facial plastic surgery and reconstructive surgery, and presented at least 100 cases for peer review. The face is a delicate place, so anyone with these accolades has truly earned them and is an expert in facial plastic surgery. As long as you commit yourself to going with someone who is board certified with documents to prove it, then you will not have an issue with someone who is performing surgery illegally, and you take a sigh of relief. Now we will get into the second part of today’s equation, the specialization or not.
Facelift Specialists in NYC
The fact is that when someone is board certified in facial plastic surgery they are generally very qualified and should be able to perform a facelift, however, especially if they are running their own practice, it is essentially their choice if they want to do them or not. Some doctors may not want to perform them, and some might have only performed a few in their lifetime of practicing. There are a number of facial plastic surgery specialists who may only perform rhinoplasties or eyebrow lifts, and may not want to deal with performing facelifts. The fact is that according to Dr. Richard Swift, who is considered the top facelift specialist Brooklyn has to offer, but also performs a number of breast augmentations, BBLs and more, there are surgeons who work on all procedures. And here you have somewhat of a choice, while it is obviously best to go with someone who considers themselves proficient at performing a facelift, you should take the time to ensure that the surgeon wants to perform the procedure, has performed the procedure a number of times, and done so successfully.
