In order to be inspired work, plastic surgery procedures and treatments must incorporate both the art and science of beauty. Because we, as plastic surgeons, are mandated to create naturally beautiful results, a plastic surgeon must have an aesthetic eye….training and experience are simply no longer enough. My procedures artistically bring out the key beauty features, thereby giving a more contoured, natural and youthful result”, explains Dr Francis Palmer.
