Facial plastic surgeon Dr. Fernando Burstein says his cosmetic surgery patients often have one common concern: they want people to notice they look better and renew their appearance, but they do not want it to be obvious they actually had plastic surgery. If you keep up with our blog, you’ve probably read Spotlight Patient articles about patients who have had multiple procedures to achieve their cosmetic goals. As you can see in their before and after photos, even with combined procedures, patients can achieve natural looking results.
Take our October and August 2012 Spotlight Patients as examples. Each of these patients received a series of treatments completely tailored to their individual needs, and both patients reported that even though they received more compliments about their appearances following the procedures, no one suspected they had plastic surgery. Although it may seem like increasing the number of procedures could result in an over-modified appearance, Dr. Burstein uses his exceptional surgical skills to target each patient’s specific concerns and produce natural-looking results.
Patients looking for facial rejuvenation often come into consultations for facelift surgery although their signs of aging may require more than a facelift alone. A facelift targets sagging skin and wrinkles on lower face, cheeks, and neck, so patients concerned about furrows across the brow may benefit from brow lift too. Using facelift surgery techniques to tighten the brow could compromise the results on the lower part of the face, which is why Dr. Burstein prefers using different techniques for different issues.
With over 20 years of facial plastic surgery experience, Dr. Burstein has treated many patients with a variety of needs and goals. After a thorough consultation with a patient, he is typically able to understand their specific goals and can determine a treatment plan using complementary procedures to produce optimal results.
