How to Choose the Best Plastic Surgeon For a Facelift | El PasoAny surgery related to the face is a complex aesthetic procedure. The surgeon will have to ensure that the integrity, harmony, balance, and identity of the face are preserved during facelift plastic surgery as well as create safe and beautiful results simultaneously.

Patients seeking facelift surgery should cautiously identify a plastic surgeon as working with an unqualified or inexperienced surgeon could cause unwanted aesthetic outcomes, surgical complications, and additional costs related to revision surgeries. When choosing an appropriate cosmetic surgeon, the patient should keep various factors in mind.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Marco Gonzalez provides facelift surgery to patients in El Paso, TX, and surrounding communities. 

Why Choose a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon?

Dr. Gonzalez is board certified by the globally recognized Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). ABPS is the only plastic surgery board that the prestigious American Board of Medical Specialties recognizes. The board follows a strict selection process, only awarding certification to a small number of surgeons every year.

Upon choosing an ABPS board-certified plastic surgeon, a patient receives an automatic assurance that the surgeon would have undergone a specific minimum number of years of training in the field of plastic surgery.

ABPS certified plastic surgeons will usually invest heavily in quality medical standard and best practices, adopt innovative surgical techniques, pursue continuing education, and follow the latest safety protocols to offer their patients with safe and outstanding surgical results.

Focus on Customization

The kind Dr. Gonzalez firmly believes in individualizing procedures, such as facelift surgery, to address the unique requirements of the patient to be able to develop the best possible outcomes. The facial characteristics of every patient are distinct. The surgeon should account for these different characteristics and incorporate the personal cosmetic needs and goals of the patient in the facelift surgery plan. 

The prudent Dr. Gonzalez does not adopt a ‘one-size-fits-all’ or ‘cookie-cutter’ approach to surgery, taking time to evaluate a patient’s health condition, facial structure, and cosmetic needs as well as encouraging them to share their innate aesthetic aspirations. He will then develop a personalized and detailed surgical plan based on these inputs.

Dr. Gonzalez delicately balances the principles of art and science in a manner that helps develop outstanding facelift results that are not only cosmetically attractive, but also safe, sustainable, and natural-looking.

Personal Characteristics and Attitude

The cosmetic outcomes and safety are certainly vital considerations in a procedure such as facelift cosmetic surgery, but it is also important for the patient to feel at ease with their surgeon. The decision to undergo a facelift is an extremely personal one.

For this reason, the patient should work with a surgeon who respects their privacy and cosmetic goals. At the time of the pre-op consultation, the surgeon should ask the patient about the results that they week as well as the exact procedures that interest them.

In case the patient gets a sense that the doctor is unwilling to individualize the procedure to suite their unique needs, they may reconsider their choice of plastic surgeon. A responsible surgeon will also never put pressure on a patient to undergo more surgery that they actually require. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Marco Gonzalez receives patients from El Paso, TX, and nearby areas for facelift.
