Being in an eternal quest for beauty as an individual and as a specific concept, the standard aesthetic procedures and “Barbie Doll” look-a-like surgeries which achieve identical results, have determined my constant endeavour, as a plastic surgeon, to be unique from others. Every patient has a right to their personal surgery, with each of them having a unique identity and beauty which should be preserved. My work philosophy is: the flow of natural against artificial; discrete and perfectly balanced.
Kindness towards others, having a nurturing love and empathy for people are key principles of a well mannered aesthetic surgeon. The surgeon should be an experienced doctor widely educated, have a strain of art incorporated within them, having developed a sense for beauty and aesthetics. An aesthetic surgeon has to have the ability to observe beauty from different angles, whilst at the same time harmonising between being a strict professional surgeon and yet apply art to one’s work.
A patient’s health is always my priority, thus the first consultation is the key to further success. This is when expectations and possibilities meet each other in order to interweave Id and Ego with physical appearance. The holy trinity of knowledge, beauty and sense of proportion are the core principles of aesthetic surgery. Constant demand for widening existing knowledge and experience are necessary to upgrade my aesthetic practice. Every patient must be a surgeon’s masterpiece, hence my task is to recognise the wishes of each individual, to feel and sense the proportion of their face and body whilst fulfilling their expectations.
