The central focus of the face lift operation is the edge of the jaw, which runs from the bottom of the chin up to the bottom of the ear.  Our skin doesn't adhere tightly to the bone in that area; you can move it back and forth like the skin on a dog's back.  That looseness is the anatomical feature that allows us to perform a face lift: pulling the skin up and back and obtaining the improvement along the jaw line.

Questioner: Are these enough qualifications for a Rhinoplasty surgeon?
I already met with dr (?) and feel comfortable to go with him to perform my rhinoplasty. I just want to make sure he has the right qualifications. “ABMS MOC” Maintenance of Certifcation (MOC) by the American Board of Plastic Surgery Current Diplomat, American Board of Plastic Surgery Current Certification of Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Past Diplomat, American Board of Surgery
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Looking for these qualifications can get you in big trouble
There are lots of boards and groups that certify and evaluate surgeons who perform rhinoplasty.

But you want to know the *skill* of your doctor. The great majority of doctors who do rhinoplasty are mediocre at this operation, and the only way to tell the doctor's skill is to review his before and after photos. Board certification means almost nothing at all. Ignore the diplomas and look at the photos. See whether he has been able to accomplish for others precisely what you want for yourself.

If you find yourself looking for a revision operation later, having picked a doctor with the "right" qualifications this time will be very little comfort indeed.
