Dr. Bednar applies his artistic aptitude to these subtle details. He has been painting, carving and sculpting since he was 8-years old.

“Like so many of the facial rejuvenation procedures, it demands an artistic approach and a great attention to detail to identify the changes to the topography of the face as a result of the aging process. This varies by individual.”

“When I am painting a portrait or sculpting a bust in clay, I set out to understand, then achieve the subtle differences in the facial planes and the topography of that individual’s face so that I can accomplish the likeness and character of that person.  If this is not done, then people don’t recognize the person in that painting or bust.  The same holds true with a fat transfer to the face. This is where the art gets overwhelmed by the science of the technique as so amply demonstrated in the distorted faces of so many celebrities.  A youthful and natural likeness can be achieved, but the devil is in the details and the surgeon’s experience and artistic aptitude.”
