“A well-done facial rejuvenation makes patients look as they did when they were younger, but does not change their unique appearance.”
Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Jeff Scott, recently sat down with us to answer questions about his different approaches to facial rejuvenation at The Plastic Surgery Center in Sarasota, Florida.
When a patient is looking for facial rejuvenation, how do you determine the most appropriate procedure?
It is most important to listen to the patient’s individual concerns about his or her face and neck. I then evaluate the patient holistically, considering age, medical conditions, medications, previous facial surgery, weight gain/loss, level of physical activity and smoking history. Next, I perform a thorough evaluation of the forehead, periocular area (around the eyes), mid-face, lower face and neck. Based on this information, I recommend a procedure or combination of procedures that best suits the patient’s desires while creating a harmonious, youthful and natural appearance.
