In the age of social media, the eternal quest to be loved has taken a detour into a new and urgent goal: to be liked. The thumbs-up on Facebook or the Instagram heart confirms our value, sending our self-esteem soaring.
Sometimes the pursuit of a look to like brings clients to the Beverly Hills office of renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Ashkan Ghavami. It’s the ideal destination, because he and his team are skilled in suggesting targeted cosmetic procedures that can make a dramatic difference in image and confidence, while also encouraging patients to seek enhancements that are realistic and appropriate.
A New Dimension
According to a 2018 survey by Pew Research, 88 percent of those in the 18- to 29-year-old age bracket report being very active on social media. It’s a visual world that constantly generates new trends and attitudes. Along with novel trends come surprising new terminologies: “Pre-juvenation ” is the term for a preference by some younger people to consider cosmetic procedures now as a way to preserve youth, rather than wait for the inevitable wrinkles, folds and creases to appear.
Dr. Ghavami understands the latest fashions and sensations, but his vision is far wider. He looks beyond fleeting trends to your core beauty, and focuses on how to enrich and magnify it. The result is a look that is not simply noticed on the smartphone screen, but also stunning in the 3-dimensional glory of real life.
Skill, Artistry, Wisdom in Cosmetic Procedures
Dr. Ghavami has the experience and artistry to revitalize your complexion or add angularity to your jawline, elegant curves to your profile, fullness to breasts or tightness to the abdomen. But he also has the wisdom and judgment to counsel patients whose goals may be extreme. One example of this is a small but curious trend that has been noted in several news stories recently: hand lifts for the sole purpose of posting close-up “engagement ring selfies.”
For patients who are seeking to match the latest fashion or celebrity, Dr. Ghavami recommends considering a cosmetic technique that will be temporary, such as dermal fillers, rather than making a permanent commitment to a passing trend.
