Cosmetic Surgery is unique in that unlike other surgical specialties, the surgeon is changing healthy tissue which is not diseased in the traditional sense. The surgery is being performed to fulfill the patient’s desire. Therefore unlike all other specialties, the ‘wants and desires’ of the patient take a central role. Cosmetic Surgery is performed using a five-dimensional framework. By this, it means there is a three-dimensional framework of the physical body. In addition, a cosmetic surgeon has to take into consideration the fourth dimension of Time to visualize the desired final result after the healing process is complete since tissues can change during the healing period. Finally, but even more importantly, a cosmetic surgeon must delve into the patient’s mind and ascertain the nature of what the patient dreams of and wants — and what the patient expects. Understanding this desire is fundamental to a successful cosmetic surgery operation.
