Parotid tumor surgery and a face lift - how to find the surgeon
- You first need a surgeon who does facial tumor surgery -
- Both plastic and facial plastic surgeons do these operations.
- Assuming you want the tumor covered by insurance, start with checking the facial plastic and plastic surgeons on your insurance panel.
- Arrange consultations with one or more of them - until you find the surgeon who seems right for you.
- Please don't delay -
- Once you have recovered from the parotid tumor procedure, then if your current surgeon does not do cosmetic surgery, you can ask her/him to refer you to a colleague who does.
