It’s normal for people to want to look like or have other people’s facial and body features. Maybe it’s a nose like Ashlee Simpson or a certain breast size; either way plastic and cosmetic surgery can make that possible.

Talking to a well-known Cincinnati and Dayton plastic surgeon, Dr. Mark Mandell-Brown, explains that photos and specific details are needed when helping to achieve the goals that the patient has in mind. Using specific people as an example, also helps narrow down the needs of the patient.

He explains, at the Mandell-Brown Plastic Surgery Center, he strives to make people look better but not different. He wants each patient to maintain an unique, natural look. Dr. Mandell-Brown, who is an expert in “NATURAL LOOK” cosmetic surgery says, ”We may match someone’s lips to look like Angelina Jolie’s so we hold her cover photo next to the patient to serve as a guide. We then use computer imaging to help them visualize surgery goals. That helps often more than just a magazine photo.”

There are many rounds of visualizing surgery goals which is done during the consultation phase. “We want to make sure each and every detail is perfect so the patient is getting the exact results they have in mind,” Dr. Mandell-Brown goes on to explain.

Anything is possible with cosmetic and plastic surgery. It is advised that the patient does research on their own and has ideas of what they are looking for before the first consultation with their plastic surgeon. This will be the best way to utilize the patients time as well as the plastic surgeon’s time.
