We see your face in 3 zones, 7 subunits, superficial and deep. I realize that makes no sense so let me explain.
When a patient comes in for a consultation about their face I analyze them at first by looking at the whole picture. My eyes then break their face into thirds. Hairline down to eyes, eyes down to the bottom of the nose, bottom of the nose down onto the neck. Within the 3 zones, we see 7 subunits. The subunits are the forehead, the area around each eye, the nose, the cheeks, and the area around the mouth.
I then go back to the whole face and decide if the problem is a surface, skin texture superficial problem vs. a deeper, supporting structure laxity problem.
By using this systematic review technique we are able to identify and develop treatment plans. I then let you tell me what aspects of your appearance bother you. At this point we are ready to talk about treatment options and alternatives.
