The Facially Integrated Treatment Plan
The esthetic aspect of the face is increasingly important in not only how we look, but how we interact with the outside world and in our social life. In today’s society, the assumption that form reflects substance has never been more appropriate.
The face expresses the unique characteristics of each person, where appearance and identity blend together revealing “the mirror of the soul”.
The medical areas dealing with the face are varied and involve different specialists, who often perform without interacting or coordinating with each other.
Examining the face as a whole, from the different latitudes of each specialist area, allows for an assessment intended to broaden horizons, forming a comprehensive, higher quality diagnostic and therapeutic procedure.
This lecture follows a path where the union of the various specialists results in a constructive dialogue and a scientific collaboration heightening the analytical process and the choices to be made.
Modern dentistry, maxillofacial surgery, plastic surgery and dermatology from different perspectives converge to examine and correct abnormalities as well as esthetic imperfections considering the face in its entirety.
Through this process, the patient is placed at the center and is able to select the therapeutic alternatives to improve their appearance and regain their smile and “joie de vivre”.
