You’ve been doing some thinking and it involves having a cosmetic procedure. You hop online and start your search and several options pop up. But how do you know who to choose? When considering plastic surgery, one of the initial (and most important) steps is to research a certified and reputable facial plastic surgeon. After selecting an option or two and making the exciting decision to schedule a consultation, many of us may be surprised to discover how far some surgeons are booked out. At Utah Facial Plastics, it is not uncommon for patients to wait several months for a consultation and we are here to explain why that should not be perceived as a negative thing.
Our practice started with Dr. Scott Thompson in 2006 and over the years has grown to become one of the top, award-winning facial plastics practices in the state of Utah. With two double board-certified facial plastic surgeons and one board eligible facial plastic surgeon, two locations, and a full-service (gold standard accredited) operating room, our practice is always expanding to best meet the needs of our rapidly growing clientele.
When scheduling consultations, our team does our very best to explain waiting periods as a positive aspect of our patients journey, rather than an annoyance or hinderance. We understand the eagerness that follows the decision to move forward with facial plastic surgery and assure patients that waiting times reflect the high demand of our surgeons, the quality of their work and the outstanding results they provide on a regular basis.
In 2022 our surgeons performed more than 1700 procedures and our practice won awards for both “Best of Salt Lake City” and “Best of Northern Utah” under the categories of plastic surgery. The winners of these awards are determined not only by community votes but also by the accumulation of google reviews throughout the year, an area that our practice thrives in. We encourage each of our patients to leave reviews which we see as vital information that is readily available for all prospective patients.
Another facet that makes UFP a high demand practice is that we focus solely on the face and our surgeons perform facial plastic procedures only. When it comes to the face, many patients feel more confident seeing a provider whose craft is based specifically around facial plastics rather than a wider spectrum of procedures.
Our talented surgeons have mastered the art of today’s most sought-after procedures including:
- Face Lift
- Rhinoplasty (Nose Job)
- Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Lift)
- Chin Augmentation (Chin Implant)
- Neck Lift
- Forehead Reduction (Hairline Lowering)
- Brow Lift
- Otoplasty (Ear Pinning)
- Reconstructive Procedures & Facial Nerve Repair
Oftentimes our doctors will perform a combination of these procedures or non-surgical treatments to achieve an optimal result, based on the individual concerns of our patients. Whether patients are concerned with facial structure (balance, symmetry, projection) or skin elasticity (loose or sagging skin) or both, our doctors can be trusted to provide the best and safest results possible.
The world of facial plastic surgery is ever-expanding, and more people than ever before are looking for ways to improve their appearance. People are looking to boost self-esteem, address lifelong concerns, or achieve a more youthful appearance. With that, more people have become accustomed to the concept of instant gratification currently than ever before. We at UFP firmly believe should not be considered relevant in terms of facial plastic surgery.
Patients should always take time to research the best options when choosing a facial plastic surgeon and know that waiting periods are a positive reflection of that surgeon’s body of work. At Utah Facial Plastics, our facial plastic surgeons are known to be among the best of the best, and it is our promise that the best facial plastic surgeons are always worth the wait.
