These types of awards are valuable tools that can help guide patients toward well qualified facelift surgeons as surgeon selection is the single most important factor for ensuring a successful outcome in plastic surgery.
DALLAS (PRWEB) October 06, 2022
Dallas plastic surgeon, Dr. Rod J. Rohrich, has been ranked as the top facelift surgeon in the United States in Newsweek's new peer reviewed list of top performing plastic surgeons for the second consecutive year.
Working with data analytics provider, Statista Inc., Newsweek has published a ranked list of the best plastic surgeons in the United States in each of five different categories of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedures: breast augmentation, liposuction, facelift, eye lift, and rhinoplasty.
These lists were developed as the result of a national survey with more than 2,000 industry experts from doctors, surgeons, plastic surgery clinic managers, and health care professionals working in plastic surgery. The associated quality score is based on each candidate's surgical preparation, surgical process, post-operative follow-up care, and overall surgical outcomes generating over 5,900 votes. The survey identified 349 individual surgeons which were then ranked into lists of the top 150 in each of the five specialties, with the specific rankings based on their final quality score.
Dr. Rohrich was ranked at number 1 for best facelift surgeon in the United States, with the top score of 93.21% based on their unique scoring system. Dr. Rohrich also appeared in the other lists at number 1 in rhinoplasty, third in liposuction, fourth in eyelifts which might often be included as part of a facelift, and sixth in breast augmentation.
"Individual facial analysis is one of the most important steps in providing the highest quality outcomes for facelift patients," says Dr. Rohrich, who writes and lectures extensively on facelift surgery. "Every person ages differently and each component of a facelift must be tailored to the patient's specific situation and their unique facial features and anatomy. We must take into account not only that the face must look natural and youthful, but also how it looks after the patient heals and how the results will age along with the person."
According to Dr. Rohrich, facelift outcomes tend to be better when they are performed as a "lift and fill" facelift combined with fat augmentation to address fat atrophy. The use of science based skin care, including daily applications of Retin-A, sun avoidance, and smoking cessation, help to deliver improved and longer lasting results. In addition to making sure to address the neck area during a facelift, better results have also been associated with performing additional complementary procedures such as eyelid surgery and skin resurfacing.
"I'm extremely honored to have my work in facelift surgery recognized by Newsweek in this extensive peer reviewed process," says Dr. Rohrich. "These types of awards are valuable tools that can help guide patients toward well qualified facelift surgeons as surgeon selection is the single most important factor for ensuring a successful outcome in plastic surgery."
