The face is a complex part of the body from an aesthetic perspective. A major procedure such as facelift cosmetic surgery should only be performed by a fully trained and experienced surgeon. The patient should choose the right surgeon and ask various questions during pre-operative consultations to have complete clarity about the procedure. This will help the patient to make the right decisions.

- Can you recommend any non-surgical procedures to make facelift surgery less invasive?
- What according to you would be a satisfactory result from facelift surgery?
- Can I see facelift surgery before and after photos of your earlier facelift patients?
