Have you scheduled a facelift consultation? It’s natural to be a little nervous when you first meet with your facial plastic surgeon, but don’t be shy about asking questions — now’s the time to discuss all your concerns.

Bringing a list of questions to your appointment can help you get the most out of your consultation. Write everything down before your appointment to help you remember to bring up all the important topics you want to discuss. Stumped about what to ask? Make sure the following four questions are on your facelift consultation checklist.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Facelift?

Facelift surgery isn’t the answer for every patient. For some, a different surgical procedure or even a nonsurgical cosmetic treatment is a better option. For others, the risks of surgery outweigh the potential benefits. Your facial plastic surgeon should evaluate your general health and cosmetic goals during the facelift consultation to determine the best course of action.

What Results Should I Expect from a Facelift?

In our experience, patients who have a clear understanding of the facial improvements they can achieve through facelift surgery are the most satisfied with the results of the procedure. Ask for details about what to expect during your facelift consultation, and take a look at before-and-after photos of previous patients to get a better idea of the results you will get from your facial rejuvenation.

What Are the Surgeon’s Qualifications for Facelift Surgery?

Once you’re satisfied that you’re a good candidate for a facelift — and that the surgical procedure can give you the results you’re after — make sure your surgeon is qualified to perform facial plastic surgery. Facelifts are major surgery, and they should only be completed by a board-certified surgeon with years of training and experience.

Where Will My Facelift Surgery Be Performed?

Like other major surgeries, facelifts need to be completed at an accredited surgical facility or hospital. During your facelift consultation, find out where your facial plastic surgeon plans to perform the procedure, and if you aren’t familiar with the facility, ask for more information.
