Undergoing a facelift is a significant decision that can dramatically enhance your appearance and self-esteem. Dr. Saba Motakef at Motakef Plastic Surgery + Med Spa in Anaheim Hills, CA specializes in helping patients achieve their aesthetic goals with the utmost care. When selecting a plastic surgeon for this important procedure, there are several crucial factors to consider:

  • Board certification
  • Experience with facial surgery
  • Patient testimonials and before and after photos
  • The plastic surgeon's approach

Understanding these key points will help you make an informed choice about your facelift procedure. Let's delve deeper into each of these factors.

Is my plastic surgeon board-certified?

Choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon is essential for ensuring both safety and optimal aesthetic results. Dr. Motakef's board certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery demonstrates his adherence to the highest standards of training, ethics, and patient care. This certification involves rigorous examinations and continuous education to stay at the forefront of plastic surgery advancements. For anyone considering a facelift in Orange County, Dr. Motakef's credentials assure you are in skilled and capable hands.

Does my surgeon specialize in facial surgery?

Facial surgery is a complex art that requires not only technical skill but also a deep understanding of aesthetics. A surgeon specializing in facial surgery, particularly facelifts, will have a more refined skill set tailored to achieving the most natural and appealing results. Their focused experience means they are well-versed in the latest techniques and can handle the nuances of facial anatomy with precision.

Are there patient testimonials or before and after photos?

Patient testimonials and before and after photos are crucial when choosing your surgeon. Testimonials and photos can provide a clear insight into your provider's surgical style and ability, helping to set realistic expectations and ensure confidence in your choice of surgeon. Dr. Motakef is proud to display his work through detailed patient testimonials and a comprehensive gallery of before and after photos. These resources not only highlight the transformative results he consistently achieves but also reflect the positive experiences and satisfaction of his patients.

What approach does my surgeon take to facelift surgery?

At Motakef Plastic Surgery + Med Spa, Dr. Motakef tailors facelift procedures to each patient's individual needs. Options range from full facelifts — ideal for extensive aging, addressing deep wrinkles and sagging skin — to mini-facelifts for milder signs of aging. Mid-facelifts focus on the cheekbones and upper jaw, while lower facelifts target the jawline and neck. Each technique is chosen based on the patient's specific aging signs and aesthetic goals, ensuring personalized and effective results.
