Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Stevens "The purpose of cosmetic surgery is to turn back the clock; eliminating or reducing the effects of time & occasionally to enhance features beyond what may have been present to begin with. A well-executed facelift, for example, doesn't elicit comments that compliment me or the procedure; rather, the goal is for people to notice a newness, a freshness but without the ability to put their finger on what leads them to notice this change. I want people to look at you and think that you look great. Is it the hair, is it a vacation or a new sense of energy and optimism? I am not looking for, "wow, what a nice facelift." The goal is not to have you look like someone else but rather to look like yourself without the effects of aging. In the case of a chin or cheek augmentation or nasal cosmetic surgery, these procedures can correct a deficit that was present before but in such a subtle way that it is hard to realize that anything was done without looking at side by side before & after pictures.

When people speak & interact with you there is a movement of their focus revolving around your eyes & the nose. Facial recognition software that is in use to survey the crowds in New York utilizes digital image information from these areas because the features found there are most useful in identifying individuals of interest. Thus, any change made to the eyes, brows & nose are very subtle but very significant in the way others view you. One of my favorite procedures is the endoscopic browplasty. With tiny quarter inch incisions behind the hairline I can elevate the brows and open up the eyes in a very different way then just removing excess skin of the upper eyelid. The result makes you look more awake, rested & alert without the surprised look that causes concern. Once the brows are properly placed then addressing the extra skin of the upper and/or lower eyelids puts the polishing touch on the result."
