Scary stories about people who did cosmetic surgery and it went wrong have been done. So much has also been written about its disadvantages but what about the success stories of deformed people who got back their esteem after the procedures? What about that young woman who got back her life after her teeth were worked on? As much as beauty is in the inside, the inside should be happy and not shredded and dark especially to those seeking to counter health issues posed by their features.
Plastic surgery often gets a bad rap, but it has some unbelievable success stories that prove it can truly work miracles. The Huffington Post, UK Edition recently discussed some of these amazing feats, touching on the stem cell surgery that “allowed Katie Piper to partially regain her sight after being blinded by an acid attack” and the “cranial reconstructive surgery for Pakistani schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai who was shot in the head by the Taliban.”
Reconstructive plastic surgery can help improve debilitating illnesses, injuries and even birth defects. It’s easy to recall the story of British model, Katie Piper, who was left partially blinded in her left eye following an attack by her ex-partner, who threw sulfuric acid in her face. In November 2011, Piper underwent stem cell treatment after finding eye specialist Dr. Sheraz Daya. The surgery destroyed all of the abnormal cells, while donor cells continue to stimulate her healthy cells, allowing them to multiply.
What if you were told that you can have a procedure that will take away up to 20yrs of your life to take you back to the days when your skin was glowing and firm with youth? And without side effects? With the use of the latest modalities and highly advanced technology, cosmetic surgery ensures minimal side effects, perfect outcomes, maximum safety, less pain and nominal downtime.
Advancement in cosmetic surgery has made it possible for certain individuals to either improve or restore their physical appearance without the need of “going under the knife.” One of the non-surgical treatments available in the market is called “laser resurfacing”.
The goal of laser resurfacing is to treat unwanted skin appearance in the face or other parts of the body. People who have highly visible scars or blemishes and middle-aged individuals who have unsightly wrinkles on their faces may highly benefit from this procedure. The treatment either uses carbon dioxide or erbium depending on the severity of the skin problem. Typical laser resurfacing procedure could last for several minutes to up to two hours, and patients might experience minor discomfort due to the nature of the treatment. After the procedure, patients can stay home to recover and are given instructions on how to take care of the treated area to prevent it from infections.
To avoid risks and complications related to plastic surgery, it is best to consult a qualified and experienced cosmetic surgeon who has offered body sculpting procedures. Search the internet, go through testimonials of earlier patients and consider the before and after photos of patients to get an idea about the expertise and reliability of the plastic surgeon.
Your choice of cosmetic surgeon will be a choice you live with for years, if not your entire life. A successful procedure will make you feel more like yourself and give you greater confidence for years to come. On the other hand, ending up in the hands of an inexperienced surgeon increases your chances of having poor results which leads to additional costs, time, and heartache.Finding a board certified cosmetic surgeon who has plenty of experience in your procedure of choice is critical to getting the results you desire.
You now know the importance of specialization and board certification in cosmetic surgery, but cosmetic surgeons can have subspecialties within this field. This is because each area of cosmetic surgery requires different skills: you can imagine how operating on a nose with bone, cartilage, and breathing passages would be quite different from operating on a breast, which is primarily comprised of soft and glandular tissue.
