If facial profile changes after operation is it difficult to get used to these changes and what psychological implications can they provide?

We always do our best to plan the operation in a way that would improve facial aesthetics as much as possible. Therefore, we emphasize the crucial role of treatment planning for the overall treatment result. It is always easier psychologically to get used to positive changes in facial aesthetics and harmony, although every individual is different in getting used to the postoperative results. One may welcome the facial changes very soon after the surgery, other, especially if he/she is sentimental, may shed tears and avoid mirrors for some time not because she/he does not like the result, but because is afraid of it. This may be caused by the emotional and physical stress sustained prior and during the operation but after several weeks emotions usually settle down. Psychological tests are performed two years after the operation, as this is the least amount of time required for the patient to perceive the changes and to repossess the ability of psychosocial self-analysis.
