In brief: No easy answer: both
you should be able to get nice AND good results.
Choose a surgeon with experience, who comes recommended by other medical professionals and is a board certified plastic surgeon.

You should have the best result - good result and the best you can obtain.
This may take seeking consultation with more than one doctor so that you are content with your decision. It is your decision, so do your homework!!

Dear mendozah9, this is a personal decision and you should do your research.
Find before and after photos of faces that look similar to yours. Some people have full faces, some have skinny faces and the results depend on these things. See a couple of surgeons and make your decision after that. Congratulations, it is a great surgery that will look fantastic. Best, nima shemirani.

In brief: ASPS & ASAPS website
Will refer you to the only group of mds who's training is exclusively in plastic surgery.
The second organization is for those who have demonstrated additional focus on aesthetic surgery.

There are various types of lifts and you should have a consultation done to discuss your options.
What is most important is that your particular needs are addressed with the proposed lift options. A "facelift" can be designed to address various areas including the neck, jowl and midface. Midface lifting is most effectively done in a deep plane which provides natural and long lasting results.

First, make sure they are certified by the american board of plastic surgery.
Then go see a few in your area that are well known and have good reputations. Get recommendations from your doctor or other health professional. Use the one you are most comfortable with.

In brief: Tailored
The type of facelift approach should be based on your concerns & condition of your tissues.
If little tissue laxity then a less extensive procedure may be ok. But if a lot of tissue laxity with heavy jowls & fullness under chin a more comprehensive procedure is necessary. Many trademarked procedures are generally appropriate for only a small subset of patients with early aging...
