When considering plastic surgery, the majority of candidates think of aesthetic concerns. However, there is a lot more to the field than appearances. Even if you are solely interested in rejuvenating treatments, these secondary concerns will affect your everyday life.
Plastic surgery involves making changes to the symmetry and balance of features. These alterations are either temporary or permanent, depending on which methods are used. Some patients are happy to accept certain sacrifices. That doesn’t mean that those patients shouldn’t have the opportunity to make informed decisions.
Aesthetics in Plastic Surgery
Balancing facial features is a primary goal of aesthetics in plastic surgery. How the features maintain symmetry when the face or body moves is important. A professional and ethical plastic surgeon should therefore explain how each treatment option impacts the movement and symmetry of features.
Ethnic background and skin type will also affect the outcomes of plastic surgery. Seeing before and after examples of similar procedures can help candidates determine the most appropriate treatment path. Dr. Maurice Khosh has extensive experience in these areas of facial plastic surgery.
During a consultation with Dr. Khosh, functional considerations in plastic surgery are part of the conversation. If a procedure is likely to affect breathing or movement of features, patients may want to reconsider their options. Every patient has different facial anatomy and genetics which play a role in shaping the results of cosmetic treatment.
There is also a potential upside to altering functionality of facial features with plastic surgery. Common examples of this include improving breathing, altering the shape of a smile or changing how the eyes look when making different facial expressions.
