1. Do you mentally change or think about the changes you’d make to someone you first meet?

When I was studying plastic surgery, I used to play a game with myself in which I would look at faces on the street and try and determine why I thought somebody was beautiful or what could make them more beautiful. I found that I mostly focused on proportions. We are drawn to people who are balanced and more symmetrical. People look younger with brighter, more open eyes and high cheek bones. Extra skin around the jawline make us look older and sometimes sad. I am so used to meeting people for the first time in my office and them asking, "If I were you, what would you do?" So perhaps as a result of being a plastic surgeon, I do think about what people would benefit from the moment that I meet them.
