Choosing A Facial Plastic Surgeon

One of the most important factors for successful facial plastic surgery is the relationship between the patient and surgeon.

The surgeon might also advise on supportive surgery to enhance the outcome of the specific surgery. It is crucial for the patient to find out about all aspects of the proposed surgery.
