Booking an Appointment for Facelift Surgery

Preparing for Facelift Surgery

It is important that at this stage you are as knowledgeable as possible about facelift procedures. You must be able to recognise your reasons for wanting a facelift and you must be realistic about what to expect. Researching well before the initial appointment will make the consultation less confusing and you will be more relaxed. This is useful, because a good relationship with your surgeon is beneficial.

GP Appointment

You may have had a GP appointment before you decided to make your first consultation with a cosmetic surgeon. This is good, because your GP can provide well informed advice based on your medical records.

If you have not had an appointment with your GP at this point, it is advisable to do so. Remember consultations with your cosmetic surgeon will usually cost money, but an appointment with your NHS GP will be free and full of informative advice. So talk to him or her about your reasons, the risks, and the benefits.

Suitability for Facelift Surgery

It is important that the surgery is performed at a time suitable for you, at a place suitable for you, and make sure it is at a point in your life that is suitable for you. It is advised by plastic surgery advisory boards that your life must be free of stressful situations. Cosmetic surgery is physically and emotionally a time of upheaval, so make sure this is not exacerbated by home life or professional difficulties. 

The Surgeon & the Cosmetic Surgery Clinic

Before booking an appointment for facelift surgery, you must ascertain whether your prospective surgeon is properly qualified. There is not a universal qualification for cosmetic surgeons so you must do your research. Check if he or she is on any medical boards or recognised by organisations. Affiliations to look out for are the General Medical Council (GMC), the Royal College of Surgeons (RCS), the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), and the British Association of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS).

Not only must you check whether your surgeon is properly qualified, but where they are situated must be suitable for you. You do not want to have a very long car journey home when you have just had surgery, especially if your procedure was a more invasive one.
