While a good surgeon can perfect their surgical techniques, it takes a great surgeon to incorporate facial harmony and balance to achieve beautiful and natural facelift surgery results. Facial symmetry plays a key role in facial attractiveness. An excellent facelift procedure must either maintain or improve upon the male or female patient’s overall facial balance. If the patient requires more surgery to fix their facial balance, it may be necessary to have another surgical procedure in addition to their facelift surgery.
Chicago-based surgeon Dr. Geroulis explains his approach to facelift surgery: “I look at a face to identify the underlying elements of beauty, perhaps a contour of a cheek or a distinguished angle of the nose. I strive to accentuate those features at the same time as reducing anything that would distract from this balance. Facial symmetry has much to do with the surgical plan.”
It is very easy to see how much of a factor Dr. Geroulis’ artistic background plays into his surgical plan for facelift surgery. A surgeon who lacks an artistic eye may completely ignore the need to accentuate what is already beautiful. Some surgeons purely approach facelift procedures by looking at what needs to be modified or corrected. It is much more worthwhile to take an approach like Dr. Geroulis’. Each man or woman already has a feature (or several) that is beautiful. The key is to highlight those features, while correcting the sagging skin and loose muscle caused by age and gravity.
Dr. Geroulis approaches each patient at North Shore Center for Facial Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery as a blank canvas.
