Have you ever noticed how dramatically newborn babies’ faces change within the first few weeks of life? They come out all scrunched up and puffy, but over that first month, their features become more pronounced, more beautiful. From those initial days onward, our faces continue to change, year by year. They take on our stress and our age, but also our joy and our personality. They become truly unique and incredibly personal.
If you feel like your face no longer shows the vibrancy of your spirit — or that it never quite has – there are a number of procedures that you can consider to revitalize your appearance and boost your confidence.
As your Santa Barbara plastic surgeon, I can offer fully-customized surgical and non-surgical remedies including facelift (rhytidectomy), eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), ear surgery (otoplasty), and nose job (rhinoplasty).
A More Beautiful You Without Loss of Self
The strongest reservation that men and women have about facial plastic surgeries is the fear that they will come out looking like someone they don’t recognize. As a plastic surgeon in Santa Monica and Santa Barbara, I’ve seen plenty of people walking around who clearly went to discount or un-certified surgeons that went too far, did too much, or simply did a bad job. Such people seem like a case against plastic surgery, but they should actually just be considered a case against bad plastic surgery.
As your surgeon, my first and most important goal is to understand exactly what you are hoping to achieve and help you get the results you want. That’s why I like to keep my practice small and private. By only seeing a few select clients each day, I’m able to spend time getting to know everyone that I work with.
In my office you will never explain your wishes to one person only to have them scribbled down and passed between a dozen other people before I see you. Nor will you feel rushed or pressured to move forward. I will spend as much time consulting with you as it takes in order to make sure that we are on the same page and that you are fully satisfied with your treatment.
My other most important goal is providing you with results that look and feel natural. After your procedure, whether you choose a minor eyelid lift or a full facelift, I want you to be able to look in the mirror and feel like yourself – just a younger, healthier, rejuvenated version of yourself. The goal is for people in your life to look at you and think, “Wow, she/he looks amazing. I wonder what they’re doing differently?” Maybe you’ve changed your diet, or maybe you found a great new masseuse… The real reason needn’t be anyone’s business but your own.
