Board Certifications

To make the ideal choice for a plastic surgeon for facelift, the patient should try to distinguish between a general plastic surgeon and a specialized facial plastic surgeon. A specialist in this field will have received advanced training in otolaryngology, which is the surgery of the head and neck area, preferably with a board certification from the American Board of Otolaryngology (ABOto).

Additionally, the expert should have received board certification in the specialized area of facial plastic surgery. Dr. V ranks among the select group of experts who has received board certification in the area from the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ABFPRS). Patients can be reassured of the authoritative expertise and specialty of the surgeon when they have acquired these certifications from the most prominent boards with extremely rigorous standards of excellence.

 

Value of ABFPRS Certification

If a patient seeks facelift procedure from a plastic surgeon having an ABFPRS board certification, it means that the surgeon has met and maintained the following criteria:

  • Completed an approved surgical residency in head and neck surgery or general plastic surgery.
  • Is double board certified due to the previous certification from the American Board of Otolaryngology or other eminent boards.
  • Has successfully cleared a two-day written and oral exam.
  • Has at least one hundred post-op facial plastic surgery reports that have been accepted by a peer-review committee.
  • Has at least two years of clinical experience.
  • Operates in an accredited surgical facility.
  • Adheres to the ABFPRS Code of Ethics.

Dr. V receives patients from Chantilly, Northern Virginia, Loudoun County, Fairfax, Prince William, Fauquier, Arlington, Middleburg, Leesburg, Manassas, Warrenton, and nearby areas for facelift surgery.

 

Value of ABOto Certification

To earn a certification from the ABOto, the surgeon must clear psychometrically validated exams, complete the ABOto training requirements, and participate in a Maintenance of Certification program. The certification process with ABOto continues throughout the surgeon’s career. Its high maintenance standards ensure that the surgeon adopts best practices and high standards in surgical techniques and patient care.

The facial plastic surgeon’s affiliations, hospital privileges, experience in performing facelift surgeries in the past, personal rapport with patients, and track record of success in facelift surgery should also be evaluated before making the final choice of a surgeon.
