Professional Statement

Dr. Gregory Vipond’s approach to facial beauty and rejuvenation is one of symmetry and balance. His goal for every patient is for them to leave his office without appearing to have ever seen him by restoring and enhancing a patient’s natural beauty without leaving any telltale signs of cosmetic treatments or having a “done” look. By understanding the complex anatomy of the face and neck and how it changes with advancing age, he can better repair the ravages of time and environment, leaving you with youthful features. It is very true that Facial Plastic Surgery incorporates a great deal of artistry alongside the science of medicine, and having an appreciation of beauty and how it may differ for each patient is a requirement for successful results. Dr. Vipond believes that it is a privilege to be entrusted with the care of his patients. He understands that facial plastic and cosmetic surgery is a choice and wanted to reward your trust with an honest discussion of your hopes and concerns and to create a treatment blueprint that will help ensure the best possible outcome and value. One of the most enjoyable aspects of his practice is learning how the positive physical changes translate into positive reactions and interactions in a patient’s social network. It is rewarding for him to see how an improvement in appearance can restore one’s self-image and confidence which can lead to an enhanced outlook on life. Despite the often-quoted phrase: “Beauty is only skin deep”, it is very evident that we live in a visual society. First impressions are made in seconds and based primarily on physical appearance. During his residency, he conducted research which demonstrated that patients after facial plastic surgery were judged by others to have more positive personalities and life success based only on their physical appearance. While this may sound unfair, it is a reality that judgment is often based on physical attributes. He has taken care of many patients who feel that their facial appearance does not reflect their inner youth and energy and who feel the need to stay competitive in work and life surrounded by younger peers. Through facial rejuvenation and beautification, he can help reverse the fatiguing effects of aging and let the rest of the world see your “inner child”.
