Prevent Plastic Surgery Gone wrong

Importance of Selecting a Surgeon

There has been a great deal of discussion about Renee Zellweger’s new and very different appearance. Like many celebrities, the public often goes into overdrive trying to figure out what, if any, plastic surgery the celebrity has undergone.

Some celebrities, like Joan Rivers and Kathy Griffin.are very open about having had many different plastic surgery procedures. However, most celebrities, prefer to keep the details to themselves, in an effort to keep the signs of aging at bay in the highly competitive and fickle world of entertainment.

Keeping plastic surgery a secret is easier said than done if the results are not only dramatic, but unnatural.  We all know some personal friends, not just celebrities, who look like a different person following cosmetic procedures.

But, how can this “overdone look” be avoided? One of the most important keys to successful and natural aesthetic surgical and non-surgical results is to select the right surgeon.  For procedures from the neck and up, it is very important to identify an experienced facial plastic surgeon.  Facial plastic surgeons have very extensive and distinct training specifically in the head and neck areas.  They do not do breast augmentation, body lifts or anything below the neck.  You want your face in the hands of a specialist who focuses their practice in this area. And then, within the highly specialized group of facial plastic surgeons, you should also select a surgeon who performs a great deal of the specific procedure you are interested in.  Furthermore, you also want to select a surgeon who publishes scientific papers and trains other surgeons about your procedure.  This tells you that the surgeon is highly skilled and considered an expert.

Dr. Russell Kridel is an excellent example of a facial plastic surgeon with the depth of experience, expertise and proven surgical skills across all facial rejuvenation procedures.  With Dr. Kridel, you don’t have to worry about plastic surgery gone wrong. Patients, including physicians and their family members, come to him for the most natural results.  They want to turn back the hands of time for a more refreshed, youthful appearance  —- “a younger you” not a “different you.” That way, you can decide if you want to tell others that you had surgery or just keep them guessing trying to figure out why you look so much younger.
