Scientific research shows that beauty is a complex whole. External features such as proportions, symmetry and shape of the face are important. But what is becoming increasingly clear is that appearance, grooming, self-esteem and non-verbal communication have more impact on beauty than physical characteristics. Isn’t that interesting? And what is the position of a cosmetic doctor in this?
Self-acceptance seems to be one of the most important ingredients for a radiant appearance. Are you thinking about mindfulness and yoga? That’s certainly a good start, but a treatment with Botox or fillers can give you a nudge in the right direction.
Clients often say, “Can you do something about my tired look?” or “I look older; I don’t feel that way at all.” With treatment, this can be largely restored and the puzzle pieces fall back into place. The experience of cosmetic doctors is that the result of cosmetic treatments improves exponentially when, in addition to the cosmetic treatment, attention is also paid to underlying problems such as chronic stress, sleep deprivation and self-image.
Most people view their faces in 2-D, focusing mainly on lines and folds. However, few people realize how others see them. At the Doctor Frodo clinic, they will provide you with insight through a 3-D facial analysis during an extensive consultation of about an hour.
All facial features are discussed in detail and you will also see how beauty and balance can be restored to the face. Lifting your skin through fillers means that your facial muscles need less force to lift your face. This makes you look less sad, and the interesting thing is, if you look in the mirror, you also feel less sad; one affects the other. In the end, what matters is that you are really happy with yourself and that you can shine.
Would you hire an applicant who has his mouth hanging open as a manager? Probably not, because you have the impression that this person is not decisive enough. But isn’t that strange? An overbite, of course, says nothing about any management skills. Yet we include this kind of information in the image we form about someone.
We (unconsciously) link facial features to intelligence and character. It is no coincidence that Brad Pitt with his rock-solid jawline wipes out entire peoples in the film Troy or Angela Merkel who rules the German people with her well-hung chin. Appearance and facial features affect communication more than we might like. That is why it is important for a cosmetic doctor to understand what someone wants to achieve with cosmetic treatment and whether this wish fits within his social context.
