Harvey “Chip” Cole, III, MD, FACS founder and owner of Oculus Plastic Surgery and Specialty Surgery Center, talks about working in millimeters and how much a silly little millimeter can affect the outcome of any facial surgery.
ATLANTA, GA, July 10, 2019: Founder and Owner of Oculus Plastic Surgery and Specialty Surgery Center, Harvey “Chip” Cole, III, MD, FACS posted a new blog on the Oculus website entitled, “The Difference A Silly Little Millimeter Can Make In Facial Plastic Surgery,” in which Dr. Cole points out how dramatic the looks can be.
Dr. Cole writes, “I remember a very old commercial that had the catch phrase, “one silly little millimeter longer.” Turns out it was for a cigarette.” He continues, “That aside, I want to discuss exactly what a millimeter can mean in plastic surgery.”
“As a facial plastic surgeon,” says Dr. Cole, “I work in a world of millimeter precision. And I think you’ve probably seen the results when a surgeon isn’t precise.” According to Dr. Cole, “A silly little millimeter too far or not far enough can mean either looking the same as you did before the surgery or like you live in a permanent wind tunnel.”
