It is certainly okay to bring magazine cut outs of celebrity features you find appealing -- it can allow for an excellent discussion of your aesthetic preferences during your consultation. However, there are limits to what facial plastic surgery can accomplish based on existing anatomy, skin type, etc. What is typically more flattering is to enhance your current features such that they create a better overall balance rather than try to paste a celebrity's features onto your own.
I am interested facial rejuvenation. Can I bring photos of myself of when I was younger for Dr. Lamperti to see?
Dr. Lamperti encourages his patients to bring in photographs of themselves when they were younger for him to review during their consultation. These photos provide valuable information about what youthful features they naturally had in the past. It also allows patients to see the importance of facial volume restoration when contemplating rejuvenative procedures.
Yes, Dr. Lamperti personally performs his own computer-based morphing. He also usually does it in front of you in order to better have a dialogue about what changes you are interested in achieving. It is important to realize that the simulations are not a guarantee of an outcome, but only serve to represent the goal that is being worked toward. You can see some examples of Dr. Lamperti's facial plastic surgery computer simulations here.
