Recent studies have shown that our perception of beauty is in large part a factor of balance. A face with even features and a balanced profile seems more likely to be perceived as “beautiful” than a face where the features are in disharmony and the profile is not balanced. The two most prominent features of the face—the chin and the nose—together play a crucial role in determining the harmony and balance of the facial profile. When these two features are appropriately balanced, the facial profile appears harmonious and attractive; when one or the other feature is over-projected or under-projected relative to the other, the entire face will appear off-balance and potentially perceived as “less beautiful.”
Dr. Gary Motykie, with practices in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles, is a Board Certified plastic surgeon with both the artistic eye for aesthetics and the surgical skill required to understand and implement the appropriate balance between the nose, chin, and other facial profiles. He appreciates that every individual has unique facial features, and even minute changes to one feature can have a drastic impact on the entire face. Dr. Motykie believes that plastic surgery is both a medical specialty and an art form. A surgeon with impressive technical skills who uses a cookie cutter approach to give each patient the same nose or the same chin will have neither successful results nor happy patients. Dr. Motykie specializes in providing personalized evaluations of all facial features in order to design customized surgical plans that take into account each individual’s unique facial structures, bring all the features into a balanced profile, and achieve results that are naturally beautiful and undetectable.
Every surgeon has his or her own artistic style when it comes to designing cosmetic procedures. To achieve the results you desire, you must select a surgeon with a keen eye for aesthetics who can determine the appropriate level of reduction or enhancement needed to bring harmony and balance to the facial profile. Dr. Motykie encourages each patient to review his portfolio of past surgeries to see how Dr. Motykie has been able to use the perfect level of enhancement or reduction of the nose, at times in combination with a chin augmentation, to achieve a more balanced profile. Dr. Motykie also encourages each patient to make use of his “Virtual Consultation” service and email him several photographs of your profile. Dr. Motykie will personally review your photos, conduct a preliminary evaluation, and email you back an altered photograph showing what your profile might look like after surgery. Should you decide on pursuing rhinoplasty, the next step will be a thorough, in-person consultation to review your medical history, analyze your unique features, and develop a customized surgical plan designed to give you a balanced profile that appears natural, elegant, and harmonious.
