Your face is your image and your only image that you send to your environment. The location, size, function and correlation of each organ separately makes you unique. However, symptoms of aging are standard and similar for everyone. That is why all babies and old people look alike and grown-up differ from each other easily with several organ characteristics. The whole formed by the organs of your face and their correlation with the background is called gestalt and when the evaluation criteria is aesthetics, this is called the aesthetic gestalt of face It is again unique, it belongs to you and tells about you.
It is crucial to learn which organs deform and which organs complete your facial gestalt (image) while making evaluations. A person with flat cheekbones can state that his/her nose is too big and it looks hooked from the side. From the hair cut to brow curve, nose tip to whisker length, lip thickness to whether or not the gingival appears while laughing, many variants form an aesthetic image regarding the whole. Neck jaw angle, nose forehead angle, your mimics and even the direction you look up and down complete this gestalt.
In surgical practice, with formal and wholistic approach, all tissue and organs that express itself is considered separately and all the figures that fail to express your image are turned into a whole and transformed into a new form and gestalt. Pursuing maximum gain with minimum risk and forming the most agreeable and sustainable transformation for you with aesthetic standards that inspire art, geometry, design, architecture and philosophy are gestalt standards for face. In this sense, surgery invites you to a transformation that will provide you the awareness to present yourself at the highest level
