A Natural Beauty
Twenty years ago, plastic surgery had a reputation for expensive, recovery time-intensive procedures that were likely to eventually make you look as artificial as Joan Rivers. Today, however, the hallmarks of great plastic surgery are natural, often imperceptible changes that aim to make you look just like yourself, only better.
So what’s changed?
Where surgeons once nipped and tucked wrinkled skin, today the goal is to revolumize the cheeks and midface thereby softening lines, not simply pulling them tight. At the same time, it’s important not to simply add volume where a surgical lift may be necessary. Overfilling the face can creates an equally unnatural look.
This is where the Continuum of Beauty philosophy comes in. A continuum, by definition, is a continuous sequence in which adjacent elements are not perceptibly different from each other. Applying cosmetic enhancements strategically along a continuum in this way is one way to embody the ultimate way to age with grace. Results are always subtle. You are always a natural beauty, regardless of age.
But how does it work? The Continuum of Beauty centers on a simple and effective “blending” concept, which essentially limits surgery or the extent of surgery by addressing skin changes and volume loss with nonsurgical solutions, and limiting surgery to only those instances where there is no other viable option (such as when the skin literally hangs).
Importantly, addressing skin changes and volume loss early on and consistently over time will not only minimize signs of aging as they happens, but will also postpone surgery. The cherry on top? When the time comes for surgery, it’s more likely to be minimal and extend the results of surgery.
