If you want to rejuvenate your face with plastic surgery, choosing the right plastic surgeon is the most important decision you can make. With so many doctors around, narrowing your choice can feel like an overwhelming task. However, this process becomes much easier once you understand that seeking a plastic surgeon that specializes in the procedure(s) you seek is the smartest approach. Below, Dr. Min Ahn, a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, explains why choosing a facial specialist is so critical. 

Most Plastic Surgeons Don’t Have (or Advertise) a Specialty

To appeal to a wider patient base, many plastic surgeons intentionally do not limit their services, advertising body, breast, and face procedures. However, that does not necessarily mean they have trained or practiced extensively or equally in all three areas. Do you really want a facelift from a doctor whose main expertise is in breast augmentation? By choosing a plastic surgeon who dedicates all his time to facial procedures, you can expect a higher level of technique and quality.   

A Nuanced Understanding of Facial Anatomy

Facial plastic surgeons have a more focused education, studying facial structure and anatomy in depth. By training specifically in a handful of facial procedures, they can learn more complex techniques. They are also most likely to continue their education as new technologies and concepts emerge to provide better surgical experiences and results on behalf of their patients as their field progresses.  

For example, to perform a surgery as complex as rhinoplasty, the doctor must understand how to manipulate tissue, cartilage, and bone in a way that does not impact the functionality or structural integrity of the nose. It is no wonder that some rhinoplasty patients wind up needing a facial plastic surgeon to perform rhinoplasty revision after their original surgery.  

Facial Plastic Surgery Requires More Precision

By nature, facial plastic surgery procedures require a more deliberate, delicate touch. Whereas breast and body surgeries are mainly about creating a general shape and size, cosmetic enhancements to the face require a more artistic sensibility and an understanding of what even small changes do to your overall appearance.

This precision is even more important when you consider that breast and body contouring results are usually covered by clothing, while facial work is always plainly visible. A facial plastic surgeon must put much more thought into where the incisions are placed and achieving results that look natural.
