Results look fake too often in the world of plastic surgery. The most common cause is a judgment issue in which the surgeon (sometimes with the blessing of the patient) intentionally creates a change which is not natural or fitting with the individual’s features. These problems can be avoided if the cosmetic surgeon adheres to a core set of aesthetic values.
Dr. Andrew Gear’s aesthetic values center on natural beauty and subtle changes. He strongly believes that the best results are those which look like they organically fit on an individual’s face and body.
In order to create customized aesthetic goals, Dr. Gear approaches each patient in a conversational style consultation. Each consult is different and tailored to each individual’s needs and priorities. Dr. Gear believes that listening and dialogue is critical for him to understand what is at the core of each of his patient’s wishes.
I enjoy the freedom of solo practice. The doctor patient relationship is sacred. It is governed by transparency and the peace that comes from truth rather than a hard sell. Patients often say this is not like any doctors office I’ve ever been to. They feel at home. This is our vision and it has been in the making for close to seven years. It is thrilling to see it come to pass.
