Abstract

Plastic surgery is gaining more and more popularity, while stigma and popular myths about it are gradually decreasing. Analyze My Face conjunctly deals with the two main problems of facial plastic surgery: the excessive rate of dissatisfaction, which results in high revision requests and negative psychological side-effects and the “diagnosis by procedure” approach, which leads to erroneous measurements. This new and innovative method of Digital Facial Analysis is a direct non-expensive online service that provides professional and documented in-depth consultation to patients before they decide to undergo any type of facial intervention. The paper thoroughly explains the scientific method with which professionals provide customers with a facial assessment based on specific parameters which will be discussed (height, width, proportions, direction of facial growth, the way they assess each facial area in detail (eyes, mouth, cartilage), and the motivations for which they suggest to correct eventual defects through precise measurements, indicators and suggested interventions. Long-term evaluation of stability of surgical results and patient satisfaction achieved with digital facial analysis has not yet been established and needs further research. However, it is important to underline that the AMF approach tends to consider exclusively possible and feasible procedures that do not compromise functionality and that do not put patients in danger of serious damage. Problems or deformities that cannot be treated are always indicated. AMF aims to maximize professionality by giving practitioners an additional tool to aid their work, give unbiased opinions and look at the overall picture. It also aims to help patients by soothing their way into the complicated world of aesthetic surgery.
