For many of us, the occasion of the recent solar eclipse was a moment to pause and appreciate the wonders of the natural world. Today’s scientific understanding of this celestial event reminds me that our intellectual curiosity, ability to reason, and mathematically elucidate complex events is a uniquely human experience. In keeping with this theme, the appreciation of beauty also appears to be a uniquely human experience. Given this premise, it seems logical that we would want to enrich our understanding of beauty using scientific methods as well as artistic sensibility. This is the basis for art, architecture, and aesthetic plastic surgery.
I often feel like a good magician in the way I can create the illusion of a younger, healthier, more vibrant and beautiful appearance without tipping off the observer as to how the “trick” was done. I have to admit that it is a lot of fun. I love making my patients look and feel better, and they love it too. On a personal note, as a 55-year-old guy who has enjoyed the benefits of facial fillers and Botox, all I have to say is, bring it on! I enjoy looking more youthful and it fits with my personal commitment to staying fit and healthy.
Let’s sit down together and create a customized aesthetics plan for you. As a way to optimize the time you spend with us, we are now offering a service we are calling “Snap Consult.” That is, when scheduling your actual consultation, we give you the opportunity to text my aesthetic patient liaison, Emily, a picture of yourself and share with us your top facial aesthetic priorities. I will review it and then Emily will contact you and provide a targeted treatment plan, a cost estimate, and an opportunity to get facial injectable fillers and Botox the same day as your consultation. We have been piloting this exciting new service for the past month and have received excellent reviews. It is particularly helpful for new patients, especially those traveling from afar and for those patients who have not been in for a while. Please try it and let us know what you think.
