What To Ask Your Facial Plastic Surgeon:

  • How many procedures, like mine, have you performed? Can you show me before-and-after photos?
  • Is there anything that you recommend I do before the procedure to ensure better results or a quicker recovery?
  • What are the risks that are associated with this procedure? What about alternative treatments?
  • What is the recovery like? When will I begin to see results?
  • When can I begin wearing makeup again and using skin-care products? How can I maintain my results?
