Брагилев Вадим Алексеевич   “... I really don’t like it when people are too capricious about their physical appearance. As if we were talking about a change of clothes! For example: “Sure, I have a nice bust - but I bet a bigger one would suit me better!” But I was charmed by the 60-year-old man who came for a face-lift with the words: “My attitude towards my face is the same as towards my old robe. I’ve gotten used to it, I love it, but I change it when I can see that it’s worn out.” And I start thinking: I don’t like my eyelids anymore; maybe something else starts bothering me. But it’s still not time to “change the old robe.” I’m certain that in doing something with our appearance, we’re still incapable of fooling mother nature. It’s an illusion that we can make ourselves twenty years younger. And dream-filled patients have to be brought back to earth so as to avoid disappointment. What’s more, all of the changes are perceived subjectively, seen differently by the person themselves, by their friends and relatives. And the response to a fantastic operation won’t necessarily be fantastic. If the person’s in the midst of drama and starts to do something with themselves, it’s important for them to remember that plastic surgery can’t solve life’s problems.”
