As one of the premier providers of facial cosmetic surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Fredric Newman attracts patients from throughout the nation to his state-of-the-art practice. Many turn to him with similar questions regarding facial rejuvenation, looking to him for both insightful education and superior surgical results. With the desire so many past patients have had for this sort of education in mind, Dr. Newman has compiled the following list of facial plastic surgery FAQs for prospective patients of his Darien, CT practice. The answers to these questions, however, should be considered general. For specific answers to your questions, please schedule your confidential, one-on-one consultation with Dr. Newman today.

How Much Does the Facial Plastic Surgery Procedure I’m Interested in Cost?

The “cost question” is one that, understandably, comes up quite often among patients who contact our practice through our website. It is also one that we purposely do not address explicitly on our website, not because we don’t want to necessarily, but because we cannot. Reputable plastic surgeons such as Dr. Newman do not arrive at estimates for procedures without first meeting with patients to get an idea of their needs and goals. How can he quote a price for, say, a facelift when every facelift he performs is tailored to the unique facial anatomy of the individual patient? Likewise, although he keeps his prices competitive, he refuses to compromise the safety of his patients or the quality of his results simply to save a few dollars, so he cannot and will not advertise his services based on “low costs.” You should be wary of any facial plastic surgeon that does.

Once you meet with Dr. Newman, you can rest assured that cost will be dealt with in a very straightforward, honest, up-front manner.

Am I Better Suited to Facial Plastic Surgery or an Injectable Treatment?

Many patients come into our practice unsure as to whether they are ready to commit to facelift surgery or would prefer to undergo less invasive injectable treatments. Ultimately, Dr. Newman can only guide patients toward the decision that is right for them, presenting them with the facts about treatments and the likely outcomes they will experience. What you should realize is that surgery will always produce longer-term and more dramatic results than injectable treatments, while injectable treatments involve fewer risks and are far more temporary in their effects. Dr. Newman will never pressure you to undergo a procedure that you do not want; he will only present you with your options and answer your questions honestly.

If one approach is likely to yield superior results to another, he will advise you of this, but he will always respect your decision.

If I Am Dissatisfied with the Results of Another Plastic Surgeon, Can Dr. Newman “Fix” These Results?

In many cases, he can certainly improve the unsatisfactory results of a previous facial plastic surgery procedure. He is particularly skilled at performing revision rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty is one of the most commonly botched procedures in plastic surgery, and revision procedures require special training and experience, both of which Dr. Newman has. He can perform revision procedures of virtually any type of facial plastic surgery; however, patients must have realistic expectations of what can be accomplished. If there is extensive visible scarring left from a previous procedure, for example, there may be only so much that Dr. Newman can do to remedy the cosmetically unappealing result.
