Beauty, being beautiful & handsome is as much science as it is art. Studies with babies suggest that ‘beauty detectors’ are hard-wired in our brains from birth, such that the infants consistently gaze longer at the attractive faces. So, if babies know what is beauty, there must be a method to the madness. What Makes a face beautiful? How important is facial symmetry? Should women wear heels? What makes eyes beautiful? You may not consciously think of it, but evolution has taught your eyes to recognize beauty the moment they see it. Recognizing beauty is a short, quick response for recognizing which eggs may suit your sperm and vice versa. The brain knows in seven seconds who it finds attractive. The beauty industry tries to emulate these commonly understood patterns of beauty & tries to correct ‘flaws’ to make you appear more beautiful & handsome.

moles can occur on many parts of the body, including the face. Patients are genetically predisposed to develop moles. Each & every skin mole should be viewed with suspicion & moles should be promptly removed in cases of a rapid increase in size, darkening of color of the mole or any other complications like bleeding from the mole. Differential diagnosis of moles includes skin tags, warts, freckles, lentigenes and even melasma. Surgical removal of the moles are performed for cosmetic reasons or an excision biopsy may be performed, when there is suspicion of a melanoma (skin cancer). Surgery can remove moles easily, surgery is most often performed nowadays with the Ellman radiofrequency surgical machine, which decreases surgical time & expedites healing of the skin lesion.
As we age, the facial tissues tend to droop, due to the action of gravity. Facelifting treatment elevates the facial tissues, restoring the youthful facial contours. Surgical face lift can be performed through the classical facelifting incision. Modifications like the mid-face lift, mini face lift, etc, can achieve the same results, but with greatly reduced surgical downtime & much reduced surgical risk. Advances like the vampire Lift, the liquid facelifting treatment (with Botox Injections & Fillers), can achieve the same results, and are non-surgical, with zero risk and downtime.
