What difference does 1mm make?

Plastic surgery is a technically meticulous field, and for good reason: visual discrepancies of as small as one milimeter (1 mm) are apparent to the average casual observer.

Look at some examples of how 1mm can change the quality of someone's appearance, below.

A 1mm "dorsal hump" on the nose, visible in three quarters view.

1mm "ptosis" or drooping of the left upper eyelid.

1-2mm discrepancy of "ocular cant" or the position and angle of the eyes.

1mm discrepancy of the "vermillion border," the red-white junction of the upper lip.
