Facial Plastic SurgeryChristopher Thomson offers a full range of facial plastic surgery procedures in Christchurch NZ. Facial Plastic Surgery is a growing area of surgery encompassing a number of surgical procedures designed to correct deformity or aging changes in the structures of the face. The most common procedures performed are: Several surgical specialties perform plastic surgical procedures in the facial region, often with special emphasis on the core area of their own specialty of origin. These specialists include Otolaryngologists, Head and Neck Surgeons (my branch of surgery), Plastic Surgeons, Ophthalmologists, Dermatologists and Maxillo-facial surgeons. It doesn't matter too much which specialty the surgeon comes from. More importantly you must satisfy yourself that your surgeon has had appropriate experience and training in the facial plastic surgery procedures that he or she offers. Ask the surgeon about their background and experience and look for evidence of qualifications.

In New Zealand the FRACS after the surgeon's name gives you the assurance that he or she is a fully qualified surgeon trained to a uniformly high standard. Word of mouth and results of surgery in friends and colleagues is often the most helpful way of choosing your surgeon when you consider undergoing a facial plastic surgical procedure.
