Why patients pursue Facial Plastic Surgery?
03 November 2021
The pursuit of facial plastic surgery is an incredibly intimate and personal journey. Every patient has their own reasons for visiting with me and I take my responsibility to empower and educate my patients very seriously. My personal passion for facial plastic and reconstructive surgery stems from my desire to maximize my patients’ comfort and confidence in their appearance, allowing them navigate our complex social ecosystem with fewer fears and insecurities. Typically, younger patients will want to enhance or improve the balance and harmony between the most prominent facial features; namely the nose, chin and cheeks. More mature patients usually experience a mismatch between how they feel and how they look. My specialty is to give patients a natural and refreshed appearance that is more aligned with their youthful spirit.
Patients that have an unhealthy obsession with their appearance may be suffering from body dysmorphia and will be referred to a mental health specialist.
