Plastic Surgeons in Dallas on How to Choose a Practice for Facelift Procedures
According to the latest statistics from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), the facelift is the third most common surgical cosmetic enhancement of the face. Doctors at the Gunter Center for plastic surgery in Dallas say choosing the right practice for a facelift can ensure patients receive the highest quality results and the greatest level of satisfaction with their experience. Dr. Michael Bogdan and Dr. Jack Gunter discuss the most important characteristics to look for in a surgeon for facelift procedures and how to choose a practice based on experience, qualifications, and dedication to patient care.
As a plastic surgeon in Dallas, Dr. Michael Bogdan says selecting the right practice for a facelift procedure is essential for achieving the proper results. According to the latest statistics from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), a facelift is the third most popular facial surgical procedure in 2010 (following eyelid surgery and rhinoplasty), with a 35% growth compared to 2009. Dr. Jack Gunter, founder and director of the Gunter Center in Dallas, says popularity of cosmetic enhancement is likely a result of its effectiveness in rejuvenating and invigorating skin and appearance. He adds that a successful facelift can restore the vitality of youth to patients’ facial expressions and highlight their inner beauty.
With a facelift procedure, Dr. Bogdan says the ultimate goal is to help patients feel and look younger while still looking like themselves. While there are many approaches to performing facelifts, he adds that for many patients, a traditional procedure is the best option. During a traditional facelift, incisions are created along the sides of the face for surgeons to remove loose skin and fat from the neck and facial areas. The skin and underlying muscles are then tightened. Because the procedure requires exact precision and intensive knowledge of facial structure, Dr. Bogdan says patients should take great care to find a surgeon who is up-to-date on the latest techniques and has a wealth of experience in performing facial plastic surgery. “Because of the complex anatomy and high visibility, facelifts and rhinoplasties are two of the most technically demanding operations performed in plastic surgery. When considering either of these procedures, patients should seek surgeons who have a strong knowledge base, excellent technical skills, and sound judgment.”
Regardless of whether patients are looking for a facelift or any other type of cosmetic enhancement such as breast augmentation, both Dr. Gunter and Dr. Bogdan say that consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon is crucial for a safe and effective procedure. Dr. Gunter also recommends extensively researching a practice’s commitment to patient care and personalized treatment.
