Everyday I see patients that feel young and healthy. They are youthful and dress youthful. They work hard to maintain a healthy appearance through diet and exercise. Many have successful, professional lives, and active social lives. They look in the mirror and they see old, they see tired. They see the signs of an aging face. But how can this be? How can I be young, and look old? Such sets up the dilemma, the conflict. How can I resolve this conflict?
These are people that are basically happy with themselves, happy with whom they are, but they want to maintain or hold onto their appearance. This is the goal of facial cosmetic surgery: To maintain that youthful, fresh appearance, to resolve conflict, to both feel and look youthful and fresh.
