World’s Best Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon

What does it mean to be one of the World’s Best Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeons? We were fortunate enough to be voted “one of the world’s best” plastic and cosmetic surgeons by Tatler Magazine.  We were unaware of the voting until the results were in and we were notified by the editor of the magazine. I remember taking the call and asking her what the article was about, how I had been granted such an honor and finally how they had decided upon who was, or was not chosen. It turns out that Taler magazine contacted their clientelle which are among the rich, famous and comnnected asking them a simple question. “If money an travel were not an issue and you could go anywhere” for your plastic and cosmetic surgery, where and to whonm would you go?

I reflected on why I was chosen and I truly believe it had everything to do with my belief in The Palmer Code Principles as they would come to be described and illustrated in my book some decade later. Early on in my plastic and cosmetic surgery career it became obvious to me that we, as plastic and cosmetic surgeons, are taught to perform surgeries but not what beauty truly is or is not. In my mind the aesdthetic aspect of a plastic and cosmetic surgeon is paramount in his/her understanding the proper aesthetics of facial and body beauty for the creation of a nataurally more attractive face and body. Having experience performing Rhinoplasty, Face Lifts, Cheek Implants, Chin Implants and other procedures is simply not enough. The surgeon must understand how to create natural beauty…which in my opinion is frequently overlooked by patient and surgeon alike. Why else would we see so many distorted, windswept, joker like faces being ridiculed in the media.  Aesthetically minded (following The Palmer Code Principles) plastic and cosmetic surgery or treatments like Botox, Perlane, Restylane injections will create a naturally more attractive look and in my opinion is a must in today’s modern society.

So what does it take to be one of the World’s Best plastic and cosmetci surgeons?

1. A real contribution to the field of plastic and cosmetic surgery…I believe The Palmer Code Principles that define beauty belongs in this category and I have spent many hours educating consumers on what will and will not make them more naturally attractive.

2. The ability to modify and use the existing procedures to create naturally more attractive faces and bodies following The Palmer Code….in other words, inspired plastic and cosmetic surgeons do not merely take whatever results that a procedure may provide but rather creatively use aspects of any and all procedures to accomplish the desired aesthetic goals.  This is what you, as a consumer, are really paying for and why you should never use price shopping as the way you choose your plastic and cosmetic surgeon.

3. Experience but experience using The Palmer Code as the aesthetic guide for creating natural beauty.
