It seems that every other month or so, some new type of facelift procedure emerges. It’s usually discovered on some celebrity, and is hailed as the latest and greatest innovation in the medical world. These fad procedures often have catchy names and offer the most natural results with zero recovery. It’s like magic. It’s like facelifts gone wild!
However, choosing your facelift procedure based on hype rather than sound judgement is a recipe for disappointment. There is no one-size-fits-all aesthetic solution that can address the vast number of differences between patients, their faces, and their goals. The surface texture of the skin, the skin’s elasticity, the looseness of the support beneath the skin, the volume and distribution of fat in the face, as well as the underlying bone-support all contribute to your appearance. These attributes differ from person to person, making it impossible to honestly suggest that one single procedure can claim to be the ultimate solution.
How to Make the Right Choice for Your Facelift
So how do you know what to do? It all begins with picking the right doctor. When considering any plastic surgery procedure, you should always choose a board-certified plastic surgeon. In order to achieve this important distinction, a doctor must:
- Graduate from an accredited medical school
- Complete 6 years of surgical training following medical school with a minimum of 3 years of plastic surgery residency training
- Complete exhaustive written and oral exams
- Complete continuing medical education, including patient safety each year
- Perform surgery in accredited, state-licensed or Medicare-certified surgical facilities
- Adheres to a strict code of ethics
Beyond exemplary credentials and a proven history of outstanding results, you need a plastic surgeon who will listen to your concerns, be thorough when examining your face, and be honest with recommendations.

Your Customized Facelift Procedure
The goal of facial plastic surgery is not to make you look like someone else, but a refreshed, revitalized version of yourself. Dr. Schuster emphasizes corrections that will keep you “looking like you.” Sometimes this means having more work done than you had originally anticipated, and other times it means doing less. Facial cosmetic surgery is an area of expertise for Dr. Schuster. He is familiar with nearly every different type of facelift procedure and will help you to determine what is right for you.
While a facelift offers a variety of benefits, the procedure isn’t always right for everyone. If Dr. Schuster doesn’t believe the procedure is right for you, he’ll tell you. If he thinks a facelift will leave you with an unnatural appearance, he will recommend against it and explain your other treatment options. So whether it is a Deep Plane facelift, Composite facelift, a Short Scar facelift, a vertical SMAS facelift, mid-face lift, fat grafting, browlift, cheek/chin implants, skin treatment, laser rejuvenation, or other treatment, he will suggest the procedures that will produce the best results for your unique goals and anatomical characteristics.
By choosing Dr. Schuster, you will have the most advanced and effective treatment options available to you. His proven experience, knowledge, and skill enable him to design a customized treatment plan that is tailored specifically for you and your unique needs.
