Recently a group of American Plastic Surgeons disclosed all the weird and wonderful procedures that patients had requested over the years. In most cases the Surgeons declined to carry out the extreme surgeries however it is common for patients to share images of celebrities or features that they’d like their surgeon to re-create.
We often have to explain to patients that whilst the Duchess of Cambridges nose looks good on her, her nose may not necessarily look the same on someone else. The Duchess of Cambridge has whats’ often referred to as ‘a mathematically perfect nose’, it suits her bone structure and is balanced against her other facial features whereas a person with a different bone structure may suit a smaller, larger, wider or thinner nose.
The same applies with most procedures, a patient may ask for a 280cc Breast Implant at consultation because that’s what their friend has. Again their friends’ height, body shape and original breast size is likely to be different therefore in order to achieve a similar result a larger, smaller or different placement of implant maybe required.
They key to achieving a good result with Plastic Surgery or an Aesthetic Treatment such as Dermal Fillers is creating a feature or shape that enhances the individuals appearance. It is important to attend your consultation with an open mind, of course take along the photo you have in mind and discuss what you’d like to achieve but be guided by your Surgeon or Aesthetic Practitioner as to what is a realistic result. It is their responsibility to be honest, if your expectation is unrealistic he or she will usually say so and advice will be given as to what result could be achieved. It works both ways whilst you as a patient want a certain result your Surgeon or Injector wants to achieve a result to be proud of and one that he or she knows you will be happy with too.
