Why Choosing the Right Facial Plastic Surgeon Matters

Selecting a qualified facial plastic surgeon is crucial for several reasons.

  • Expertise and Training: The right surgeon must have extensive training in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. Look for credentials such as fellowship training from accredited programs and board certification. These qualifications ensure that the surgeon has undergone rigorous training and has the skills to deliver optimal results.

This extensive knowledge allows them to recommend the best treatment plan for achieving natural-looking results. Dr. Brace offers various services, from rhinoplasty and facelifts to non-invasive treatments like Botox and dermal fillers.
  • Patient-Centric Approach: The best surgeons prioritize patient safety and satisfaction. They take the time to understand each patient's goals, provide detailed consultations, and develop personalized treatment plans. Dr. Brace's patient-centric approach ensures that each procedure is tailored to the individual's desires and concerns, fostering a trusting and comfortable environment.
