Our face is the most personal part of our body. It influences how we are sensed – both by ourself and others. Every day, we each see the same person in the mirror, and that uniqueness is something we each cherish. When I speak with patients looking to improve their facial appearance, one of the most common sentences I hear is, “I still want to look like myself after surgery, if that makes sense.” And of course, it does make sense. Throughout life, each person is recognized by friends, family, and loved ones by their face. Their face is their identity. My patients want an enhancement, not a change.
As a facial plastic surgeon, I am always careful to give each person a natural result that brings out their unique beauty. Like the fine strokes on a painting or the curvatures on a sculpture, my goal is to bring harmony to the face. It is important to do this in a way that preserves facial identity. In my experience, this subtle approach leads to the greatest patient satisfaction. My results are designed to look natural, as though you were born with them.
I look forward to meeting you.
