Orlando Plastic Surgeon Emphasizes Patient Education in Facelift Consultations

Dr. James Matas Provides His Facelift Patients With a Comprehensive Consultation Process to Thoroughly Educate Them and Examine Their Needs to Determine the Most Beneficial Treatment Plan

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - Sep 4, 2014) - Dr. James Matas, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Orlando, approaches the facelift consultation process with the goal of fully educating his patient. He says his patients often come to him not knowing exactly what the facelift entails, even calling it a number of different names. To help them better understand what the procedure specifically entails, Dr. Matas clarifies any misconceptions the patient may have, analyzes their needs, and creates a custom treatment plan.

Dr. Matas does his best to help his facelift patients make an informed decision about their surgical care by thoroughly explaining what perceived issues various facial procedures can address and showing examples of cases with before and after pictures. He describes the differences between each option and answers any questions the patient may have at the time.

Typically, patients of the Advanced Centre for Plastic Surgery who are interested in facelift surgery are between the ages of 40 and 60, though Dr. Matas notes that certain individuals beyond this range may still be good candidates depending on their needs. Most facelift patients, he explains, simply want to rejuvenate their appearance -- not necessarily look decades younger. Dr. Matas does his best to make them look as good as they feel and minimize the effect aging has had on their appearance. He does this by fully tailoring the procedure to their needs.

To determine the right course of action, Dr. Matas evaluates the facelift patient from the top of the face to the bottom. He then discusses surgery and helps them understand the potential of various options. During this process, Dr. Matas will educate the patient on alternative options to surgery like dermal fillers and BOTOX® Cosmetic. Once the patient has been educated on their options and their needs have been evaluated, Dr. Matas will create a personalized treatment plan. This may include additional procedures like a neck lift or eyelid surgery. As mentioned in his blog post "How Advanced Skin Care Options Can Aid Facelift Results," Dr. Matas will also refer the patient to the practice's medical aesthetician, who will recommend skin care products and the appropriate chemical peel to improve the health of their skin prior to the facelift surgery.

Ultimately, Dr. Matas strives to help patients feel better about themselves and feel beautiful again. He works closely with them throughout the consultation process to keep them informed and help them feel confident about their decision. For anyone interested in facial rejuvenation, he recommends seeking a board-certified plastic surgeon to learn about their options and discover the best procedure for their needs.
