As a San Jose face lift surgeon, I understand that a beautiful face does not always have to correlate with a youthful face. While smooth and wrinkle-free skin can contribute to a more vibrant appearance, the goal is not necessarily to make the patient look 30 years younger. I seek to create beautiful results by highlighting a patient’s features.
When a patient comes to me for a face lift consultation, there are specific properties of the face that I take into consideration:
- Symmetry: Whether you were born with an unbalanced facial appearance or incurred some form of injury during your life, symmetry helps to create a visually pleasing facial structure. Nose reshaping is one of the most popular procedures for restoring facial symmetry.
- Skin Quality: Aging, gravity and unhealthful habits can all affect the quality of a person’s skin. Smooth skin with minimal blemishes can help create a healthy appearance.
- Facial Contours: Over time, people can lose volume in their faces, which affects the strength of their facial contours. Fat transfers and nonsurgical fillers can help restore this volume, giving patients a healthy appearance.
It pays to fully understand these procedures and how they can be customized to meet your needs. If you have questions, schedule a consultation with a qualified surgeon to learn how you can enhance your natural beauty.
