Questions to ask the Facelift Surgeon


Facelift Surgery Clinics in London & UK »

It is very important that you and your surgeon develop a good professional relationship. This will mean your surgery will be much more likely to be tailored to your needs and thus be a successful surgery. To create this good relationship you must have trust in your surgeon’s capabilities. Asking questions can dispel concerns and build faith in your surgeon, so do not shy away from getting your answers.

Many topics can get covered in your initial consultation; it can be overwhelming. To prepare yourself for this first meeting, it is a good idea to have thought about your concerns before you go to the consultation. Not only this, but writing down any worries and questions can be a great way to ensure you do not miss something important.

General Questions

There are some basic topics that should be covered in your consultation with your surgeon, but if they are not covered you must ask about them.

  • What qualifications does your surgeon have?
  • What is the procedure after an unsatisfactory surgery?
  • How much will this procedure cost me?
  • What is your surgeon’s success rate?

Facelift (Rhytidectomy) Questions

Once the basics have been covered, you should ask more specific questions about your facelift surgery.

  • What experience does your surgeon have specifically with facelift surgery?
  • Is this facelift surgery suitable for me?
  • What are the risks and side effects of facelift surgery?
  • How long is recovery after a facelift?
  • Is facelift surgery very painful?
  • What can I expect from this surgery?
  • After the surgery, how will my face change over time?

This list is in no way exhaustive; it simply ensures that you cover the critical questions with your surgeon. Do not be afraid to add more of your own questions. Remember that this surgery will be permanently changing your body, so you have every right to ask difficult and, perhaps, obvious questions. You must know what is possible and what is unlikely. It is imperative you feel at ease before you go ahead with the facelift process.
