Skin Rejuvenation and Resurfacing

Skin Care Procedure

Skin rejuvenation and resurfacing can be achieved in several ways, ranging from laser and light treatments to chemical peels and injectables.

What questions should I ask my plastic surgeon about skin rejuvenation and resurfacing?

Use this checklist as a guide during your skin rejuvenation and resurfacing consultation:

  • Are you certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery?
  • Were you specifically trained in the field of plastic surgery?
  • How many years of plastic surgery training have you had?
  • Do you have hospital privileges to perform this procedure? If so, at which hospitals?
  • Is the office-based surgical facility accredited by a nationally- or state-recognized accrediting agency, or is it state-licensed or Medicare-certified?
  • Am I a good candidate for this procedure?
  • What will be expected of me to get the best results?
  • Where and how will you perform my procedure?
  • How long of a recovery period can I expect, and what kind of help will I need during my recovery?
  • What are the risks and complications associated with my procedure?
  • How are complications handled?
  • How can I expect my skin to look over time?
  • What are my options if I am dissatisfied with the cosmetic outcome of my procedure?
  • Do you have before-and-after photos I can look at for this procedure and what results are reasonable for me?
