Plastic Surgery

Have you ever had plastic surgery?  I have and it is not what you think!  There are many reasons to have plastic surgery.  Unfortunately, mine was to close a wound. A wound made to remove a cancerous mass on my back. Yeah, that was no fun at all.  But, it was necessary.  I had what is called a wide excision.  And I mean wide.  I must say I was quite shocked when I woke up to find such a large wound.  But, when all was healed I was glad a I had such a skilled plastic surgeon.   Had he not been able to close the wound with my own skin using the flap technique, I would have had to have skin grafts.

There are many reasons to have plastic surgery.  Sometimes it is medically necessary, like in my case.  Other times men and women elect to have plastic surgery.

Many men and women elect to have a procedure called rhinoplasty.  If you hate the way your nose looks and want it fixed, rhinoplastyis the surgery you will get.  It is better known as a "nose job".  We all know a celebrity or two that has had a nose job.

Plastic surgeons offer more than just surgery, too.  Many offer injections and other non invasive procedures to enhance your looks. That is usually done to smooth out those wrinkles and fine lines on your face. If you want your lips to be fuller and plumper, you would see a plastic surgeon.  Based on your budget and what you want your final look to be for your lips, you can chose to have lip implants or a filler put in them. Lip implants require an invasive surgery and the lip filler can be done on your lunch hour.

Farrior Facial Plastic Surgery offers many procedures.  If you have elected to get a procedure it is very important that you and your doctor know exactly what you want so you can get the results you desire.  A consultation is a must.   Being able to fully understand and trust your plastic is key to a positive outcome.  You must give your doctor all of your medical history.  As in any other surgical procedure, there is a risk.  But, your doctor or surgeon knowing your medical history reduces that risk greatly.

As we age, many of us are electing to have different procedures done that we want to enhance our looks and slow down that clock.  In my life, I have that sagging skin on my neck and face.  I would love to have a procedure done to make that less noticeable.  I joked with my plastic surgeon when I had the cancer removed and told him I wished I had a couple of procedures done while he had me under anesthesia.

You want the best results and the least amount of scarring when you have plastic surgery.  That is why it is so important that you do your research before electing to have a procedure.  I can say, now that my wound is over two years old, I have a very fine line on my back  that is hardly visible. You also have to do your part, too.  You have to clean your wound exactly as the doctor tells you to yield the best results.
