Facelift Questions for Plastic Surgeon in Boca Raton


If you are considering a facelift or any other cosmetic procedure, you will want to make sure that you select the right plastic surgeon to perform the procedure, while facial cosmetic surgery can only be performed surgically, non-surgical rejuvenation treatments can complement the results of cosmetic surgery. It is important to ask your plastic surgeon questions that pertain to his or her qualifications and expertise in the particular procedure and, most of all, feel comfortable with the answers.

Although all doctors experience the same medical training, all plastic surgeons are not equal. Therefore, it is essential to do your homework first.


  1. Are you certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery? (You can also check the surgeon’s      record with the state’s medical board)
  2. How many years of plastic surgery training have you completed?
  3. How many times have you performed this procedure and what were the results?

  6. Am I a good candidate for this procedure and are there any reasons that I may not have excellent results from this plastic surgery?
  7. How long will the effects from my treatment last and will I have any scars?
  8. What type of anesthesia will be used for this procedure?
  9. How long should I plan for recovery and when can I resume working and/or exercise?
