Every year, New York City sits host to September’s famed Fall Fashion Week; and style-hounds know to always expect the unexpected. This year, though, instead of just dazzling dressing, trendy makeup, and expensive couture, something new was in the mix – plastic surgery. Not as a well kept secret weapon for the ultra-thin models; plastic surgery actually had its own show.
Set up in a lavish tent just outside of Lincoln Center, Dr. Ramtin Kassir sent 50 of his current patients slowly down the catwalk in a show he called, the Faces of Beauty. As the men and women strolled down the walkway, they took time to pause and show off the surgeon’s ‘designs’, while they posed alongside images of their pre-surgical self. The Before/After examples ranged from Facelifts, Rhinoplasty, Liposuction, Botox, Dermal Fillers, and Cheek Implants. “There are lots of trends out there. One is the clothes you wear. Another is the face and body you wear. Just like Ralph Lauren introduces his new line, what I am introducing is esthetically pleasing plastic surgery,” Dr. Kassir explained to the New York Daily News.
The unique stage was designed to show the world that plastic surgery has the ability look completely natural and beautiful. Dr. Kassir wanted people to see his Faces of Beauty and realize that not everyone who comes out of the cosmetic surgeon’s office has to look over done or ‘plastic’. While there are many models, celebrities, and musicians who go over with these procedures, this is not necessarily the norm. An experienced, Board-Certified cosmetic surgeon will provide patients with natural looking results that enhance their body, rather than over power their presence. He argues, “My patients look phenomenal . . . you would never know they had anything done.”
Dr. Paul Vitenas has been providing patients in Houston with natural looking results for over 23 years. He understands that women and men want to just bring out their inner beauty. What other people should notice is a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance; not be able to immediately tell that cosmetic surgery was performed.
