Dr. Konstantin in His Own Words
Why did you choose facial plastic surgery?
"Facial plastic surgery is the most demanding, the most challenging, and the most rewarding plastic surgery specialty. Other specialties are important, but what sets the face is apart is that you cannot hide it. The face is really something special.
"The relationship between a facial plastic surgeon and the patient is very special. It requires tremendous trust. Your patient is saying, 'I trust my face with you.' You cannot hide the face. You can wear clothes to hide other parts of the body, but your face is something that people see every day."
What makes this specialty so rewarding?
"I can do something for people that can quite literally change their lives. People who, say, get breast implants or liposuction are certainly changed and often are more confident. But I see patients who come back after a procedure and they are radiating a new energy. They talk about looking 15 years younger, and they actually feel like they've got those years back."
How do you build trust with a patient?
"Honesty. Patients appreciate when you are honest with them. They understand that I am not going to tell them something that isn't accurate. I spend time with my patients during the consultation to make sure they are well informed and that they understand all the details about the procedures they want."
What about patients who want to look a specific way?
"People often come in with preconceived notions about wanting to look like someone famous, or they've seen a picture of someone on the Internet. I'm honest and explain that you can't necessarily make someone look like a different person — nor would I want to. I listen to a patient's aesthetic goals, and we discuss if we can achieve that in a way that looks natural."
Do you offer non-surgical treatments?
"Absolutely. I personally perform all injectable treatments, such as BOTOX® and fillers. I believe I can get the best outcomes, and I think my patients appreciate that. Although injectable procedures and other non-surgical treatments are less complicated than surgery, they still require someone with expertise who knows facial anatomy to ensure getting consistently excellent results.
"We all only have one face and there is no hiding here. Everything should be done perfectly."
