Credentials, Credentials, Credentials!

Entrusting the appearance of your face to a surgeon is a considerable leap of faith to make. Start on the right path by doing the following:

  • Choose a surgeon who is board certified by either the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ABFPRS) or the American Board of Otolaryngology. Or better yet, choose a surgeon like Dr. Khoury who is double board certified.
  • Make sure that your surgeon specializes in facial reconstruction and cosmetic surgery of the face.
  • Research where your facelift specialist got his or her credentials. You are much better off if they studied somewhere prestigious such as John Hopkins University. The more distinguished medical institutions require rigorous training that promotes the best in every surgeon.

Research Beyond Education & Training

The training and credentials of your surgeon should only serve as a prerequisite. Even more important is their reputation, natural talent, and customer satisfaction. These are slightly more intangible qualities that can be harder to judge. So how do you go beyond just education or training?

  • Look for media accolades and awards. For example, Dr. Khoury has made the list of America’s Top Plastic Surgeons five years in a row.
  • See that your doctor has plenty of recognition from peers. Does your surgeon train others in their field?
  • Read patient reviews to ensure that the doctor and their medical staff treat their clients well.
  • Look for experience in the area of surgery you are considering. Dr. Khoury has done thousands of facial cosmetic procedures.

Facial Plastic Surgeons: Specialized in the Art of Facial Sculpting

facial examWhile there are numerous medical professionals all over the United States, facial plastic surgeons are some of the most specialized individuals around. This isn’t to say that they are better than general plastic surgeons, but a vast number of qualifications and standards must be met to be considered a facial plastic surgeon.

Aside from being highly educated, both general and facial plastic surgeons must make it through rigorous residency programs. However, facial plastic surgeons’ residencies dedicate all their attention to one area: the face.

Being a facial surgeon is more than just about completing a procedure. There is unique meticulousness and attention to detail applied to give their patients beautiful results that appear natural to the naked eye.

You wouldn’t want a plastic surgeon who specializes in body contouring procedures performing your facelift or rhinoplasty, would you?

Where Is Surgery Performed?

Skilled, qualified, and experienced surgeons perform in state-of-the-art practices or are allowed to perform in accredited hospitals to ensure patient safety and the effectiveness of the procedure.

The Consultation

When visiting a surgeon for a consultation about your facial procedure, don’t be afraid to ask any and all questions you might have. Be sure find out if the surgeon is certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and if he or she regularly performs the procedure you want to undergo.

If you live in or near Denver, schedule a consultation with Dr. Edmon Khoury by calling (720) 475-8400 or filling out our online contact form today. We look forward to hearing from you soon and are dedicated to providing you with results you can feel confident about.

Choosing an Expert Eyelid Lift Surgeon: Things to Consider

Woman considering eyelid surgeryHow to Have Safe and Effective Eyelid Surgery

Choosing to have cosmetic surgery around your eyes is a very important decision. The eyes are “the windows to the soul,” the first place others look when they speak to you, and one of the main areas where we express emotion. Even with minor adjustments, the eyelid lift can completely change the way you look, and it can affect the way you see the world around you. With this in mind, it is important to choose an expert eyelid lift surgeon for your procedure.

1. Credentials

Did you know that any person with a medical degree and a state license can legally perform plastic surgery? This is why we hear so many horror stories in the media about botched procedures. Many men and women choose less experienced “surgeons” in hopes of saving money, but they end up paying much more than they bargained for with their botched results.

When choosing a surgeon to perform your eyelid lift, it is important to choose a surgeon that is board certified. Certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) indicates that a surgeon has broad knowledge of how to perform all cosmetic surgeries. It ensures that the surgeon’s skills have been evaluated and reviewed extensively and that several years of training have been completed. This should be a minimum requirement when considering a surgeon. Dr. Khoury has surpassed this level of training with specialized double board certification by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology. These credentials guarantee that Dr. Khoury has focused the majority of his training on surgeries of the face, head, and neck and that he has met all the training and testing requirements set by these prestigious boards.

2. Experience

When it comes to choosing a qualified plastic surgeon, experience is important. You should evaluate the surgeon’s years in practice as well as the number of eyelid lift surgeries he or she has performed. During a consultation, you can ask to see the surgeon’s before and after photos to help validate their experience and skill and to get an idea of the results you can expect. Dr. Khoury has performed thousands of eyelid lift procedures over his many years in practice in Colorado and Dubai. He is dedicated to continued education in the field of facial plastic surgery and remains current with the latest technology and techniques for every procedure he performs.

3. Reputation

A good indicator of an expert plastic surgeon is their reputation among their peers and patients. A surgeon who gives frequent lectures to other surgeons, teaches at a university, or is published in peer-reviewed journals is more than likely an expert in his or her field. Dr. Khoury was selected as a surgical trainer for the Lifestyle Lift, a medical group that performs the largest number of facial rejuvenation procedures in the country. Dr. Khoury regularly attends conferences and delivers lectures and training to his peers. He is also highly esteemed by many of his satisfied patients, which is evident on various online reviews like HealthGrades and RateMDs.

Questions to Ask During a Consultation

In summary, here are a few questions you should ask when looking for an expert eyelid lift surgeon:

  1. Are you board certified by the ABPS?
  2. Do you specialize in the eyelid lift procedure?
  3. How many eyelid lift surgeries have you performed?
  4. Do you have recent before and after photos I can see?
  5. Do you teach other surgeons or give lectures on certain techniques?
  6. How do you stay current with the latest technology and techniques?

If you are interested in the eyelid lift procedure in either Colorado or Dubai, please schedule a consultation with expert eyelid surgeon Dr. Edmon P. Khoury. Please call (720) 475-8400 or fill out our online contact form today.

Wrinkles Under Neck Surgery

Have you been wondering if there is a procedure to lift, tighten and improve the look of a
droopy and loose neck? You may be a candidate for a tightening method called a necklift
to address the issue of wrinkles under your neck, an area of the body that is often the
first to loosen and sag. Typically performed in conjunction with a facelift, a necklift can
deliver that added youthful boost or can be easily performed as a standalone surgery.

A necklift will result in a dramatic reduction of wrinkles under the neck, sagging skin,
a turkey waddle or can even reduce full or heavy necks. A quick surgery, with a short
recovery time, a necklift is performed through tiny incisions behind the ears and under
the chin. For an experienced and renowned surgeon who has performed countless
necklifts, call Denver Cosmetic Surgery today for an initial consultation with Dr. Edmon
P. Khoury, Denver’s most sought after and distinguished plastic surgeon.

Smartlifting Denver

Do you see your reflection and find yourself repeatedly dreaming of a facelift, but don’t
have the time or desire for the discomfort and recovery time of a traditional full facelift?
You may be a candidate for a revolutionary new technique known as Smartlifting. The
Smartlifting procedure utilizes a laser treatment underneath the skin to tighten and
manipulate the muscle tissue at a deep level. A distinctively less invasive procedure than
a full facelift, Dr. Khoury of Denver Cosmetic Surgery is the only surgeon performing
Smartlifting in the Denver area.

Facelift procedures boast tried and true technologies that really have not changed in
many years. The introduction of the Smartlifting laser treatment incorporates a significant
decrease in complications, improved and dramatic results, increased safety and a faster
recovery time. For a procedure that will give you the refreshed and invigorated look you
desire, with a short operating time, call Dr. Khoury and inquire about Denver Smartlifting
today!

Laser-Assisted Facelifts

If you find yourself often looking in the mirror and dreaming of your youthful and
tightened appearance of yesteryear, but feel hesitant about the idea of the recovery time
of a full facelift, you may be a candidate for a Laser-assisted facelift. Often referred to as
Smartlifting, the Laser-assisted facelift is performed with the use of a laser that is placed
underneath the surface of the skin to achieve astounding results.

Dr. Khoury is one of very few surgeons in the United States performing this
revolutionary technique. The laser used for this procedure was initially developed to
perform liposuction and skin tightening. The use of this tool for cosmetic facial lifting is
less invasive than a traditional facelift and boasts dramatic and speedy results.

If you think you may be a candidate for a laser-assisted facelift, call Denver Cosmetic
Surgery today and we’ll be happy to schedule your initial consultation with Dr. Khoury
and his experienced team.
