Your face is a very personal asset. It is probably your most recognizable feature, and what comes to mind when people think about you. When any type of injury, trauma, or damage occurs to the face, it can be very traumatizing and emotional. Most people assume that their only option for treatment for a facial laceration is to go immediately to the emergency room. They visit the ER and are treated by a doctor who sees the patient with an emergency and does his/her part to treat the situation. For the most part, emergency room doctors are not overly concerned with scaring. It is not that they wish for their patient to have a scar, but avoiding scaring is not their expertise. They simply see an emergency and treat it with the best medical services available to them. continue reading
Millions of men have turned to facial plastic surgery to enhance the appearance of their face. In the last decade alone, the percentage of male plastic surgery patients has grown dramatically. The cosmetic goals of most male patients fall under the following criteria: create a more “masculine” appearance, create balance between the nose and the face, balance the facial profile, and create a more rejuvenated appearance. Men often face the risk of greater complications due to facial hair, a thinning hair line, and thicker skin. Because of the necessity to fully understand the dynamics of the male face, it is vital that male patients seek out a trusted, highly certified, and experienced cosmetic surgeon.
A person’s face is the most exposed place on the entire body, revealing more about a person than most people realize. Many people find that their face does not give an accurate depiction of who they are. For instance, many people look irritable, tired, grumpy, or even “older” simply based on the appearance of their eyes and forehead. Everyone ages differently due to genetics and their own personal tendencies, yet no one wants to look older than they are or emit an unhappy countenance.
Youthfulness is generally associated with happiness and peace. Childhood is often romanticized as a time of wonder, carefree days, and innocence. Yet, all children grow up and responsibilities of life come along with it. Stress, demands, environmental factors, and life affect people’s appearance over time. While this may be a natural occurrence, it does not mean that everyone simply accepts it without a fight. continue reading
