Plastic surgery, done properly by surgeons with rigorous training and attention to detail, can achieve a natural, subtle result which enhances the face’s natural features. Excellent communication between the surgeon and the patient is also critical to achieving natural, beautiful outcomes.
As recently discussed in this article by Dr. Dayan in Chicago, the face is a dynamic three dimensional structure which is best studied in animation and in paying attention to how different facial features work together to make one appear natural, pleasing, and relatable. For example, in youth the natural proportion of the upper lip to the lower lip is 1:1.6. The lower lip should be slightly larger than the upper lip and this should be maintained when undergoing lip augmentation procedures such as fillers in order to maintain a natural looking appearance.
