1 00:00:13.333 --> 00:00:15.500 Our aging process starts when we're very young. 2 00:00:15.530 --> 00:00:17.540 In fact, by the time we're 30 years old, 3 00:00:17.592 --> 00:00:21.260 we've lost enough fat in our face to fill a teacup. That's quite a bit. 4 00:00:21.290 --> 00:00:22.900 So my 30-year-olds, I tell them, 5 00:00:22.920 --> 00:00:25.650 your house is gorgeous, but your foundation is cracked. 6 00:00:26.033 --> 00:00:29.166 We can start fixing the problems in the next 10-15 years, 7 00:00:29.167 --> 00:00:31.660 or we can start preventing them from even happening. 8 00:00:31.690 --> 00:00:34.500 As we get even older menopause, especially in females, 9 00:00:34.525 --> 00:00:37.460 our bones actually get thinner and smaller. 10 00:00:37.490 --> 00:00:42.340 Our jawbone will be 40% smaller when we're 60 from when we were 20. 11 00:00:42.370 --> 00:00:46.338 So everything inside of our skin shrinks. We lose fat, we lose bone, 12 00:00:46.538 --> 00:00:49.108 and the skin will then sag as a result of it. 13 00:00:49.109 --> 00:00:52.683 I often have patients tell me that I'm such a great artist, 14 00:00:52.725 --> 00:00:56.083 and I know they mean well, but artistry is so subjective. 15 00:00:56.250 --> 00:00:59.375 So what makes us different is we're more of a facial engineer. 16 00:00:59.376 --> 00:01:02.533 We have to understand everything underlying 17 00:01:02.592 --> 00:01:04.750 to build something that looks natural. 18 00:01:04.833 --> 00:01:08.210 Being able to sit down during a 30 minutes consultation with my patients, 19 00:01:08.240 --> 00:01:12.020 show them how their face is aging, what they may expect in the future, 20 00:01:12.050 --> 00:01:14.980 and what we can do to prevent that is very important. 21 00:01:15.010 --> 00:01:19.992 The power of plastic surgery is that we are in the business of restoring. 22 00:01:20.080 --> 00:01:24.225 Restoring function, restoring beauty, restoring confidence.
