Face Surgery Richmond
The decision to enhance the cosmetic appearance of you face can be a big one. We all experience the effects of time and aging, such as loosening of the skin, shrinking of the fatty tissues that give your face a full appearance, and the pull of gravity. Some people are just born with aspects of their appearance which they do not like and want to improve. Still others have experienced an injury in the past and want to look closer to normal. For some patients, minimally invasive techniques, such as injections, can give the results you are looking for with a minimum of down time. However, for some patients, who need a more dramatic result, a surgical procedure may be indicated. There are many options available, depending on your areas of concern, and Dr. Hubert takes an individualized approach to each patient, helping him or her to realize their own personal goals.

Choose the right surgeon for you
The cosmetic marketplace can be confusing for patients. There are a lot of different people out there who offer cosmetic procedures. They might come from very different backgrounds or have very different levels of training with any surgery, let alone cosmetic surgery. Some may not have even gone to medical school! This can lead to a “buyer beware” situation for the patient. The term plastic surgery is a generic one. However, when it is used by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, one of the 24 specialty boards recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), it has a very specific meaning. These plastic surgeons are medical doctors who have completed a residency training encompassing all of the fields of plastic surgery of the whole body. They maintain certification through ongoing educational experience and pledge to uphold the high ethical standards in the field of plastic surgery. Dr. Hubert has been board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery since 2008.
Things you should ask your surgeon:
- Are you certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery?
- Are you a medical school graduate?
- Do you have hospital privileges to perform these operations and to care for complications of these operations?
