How do I find the right facelift surgeon for me?

Facial rejuvenation surgery can transform a person’s appearance, replacing the world-weary look that comes with slackening muscles and looser skin with a brighter, more vital aspect. Making the decision to have a facelift is no easy feat in itself, but then how do you know which cosmetic surgeon to choose? Here are three questions to ask.

1. What are their credentials?

Do they operate in a reputable clinic approved by the Care Quality Commission? Are they on the GMC’s Specialist Register of Plastic Surgeons and a member of a prestigious professional body such as BAAPS? As a member, a surgeon like Milton Keynes-based Mr Sudip Ghosh is committed to meeting stringent safety standards and keeping his skills and training up-to-the-minute.

2. Do you like their work?

One of the most frequently asked questions at Mr Sudip Ghosh’s Milton Keynes facelift clinic is ‘will it look like I’ve had ‘work’ done?’ A natural look is a priority for Mr Ghosh who has much experience of producing results that work in harmony with the face’s features. Ask to see before-and-after photos of previous facelift patients. Do you find the results appealing?

3. Do you enjoy a good rapport?

The facelift consultation is not only for the surgeon to assess your suitability, but also an opportunity to decide whether you will feel happy in this surgeon’s care – and this is why it is so important to choose a clinic where your consultation is with the surgeon who will perform the procedure and not a representative. A good surgeon will explain the potential risks and complications, engage in a candid discussion about your facelift expectations and whether they are realistic, and exert no pressure on you to make any decisions. It is then for you to decide whether you trust their abilities and their approach and whether this is indeed the right step for you.
