I want to undergo breast reduction as I‘m planning to get married.
I don’t have confidence as my breast is large and don’t have a good shape. I have talked about this with my family and they don’t have any problem with my decision. I have decided to meet Dr. McLean
for breast reduction.
What are the complications of this surgery?
Will I be able to breastfeed if I undergo this surgery?
Primary haemorrhage (starting during surgery) or reactionary haemorrhage (following postoperative increase in blood pressure) - replace blood loss and may require return to theatre to re-explore the wound.
Basal atelectasis: minor lung collapse.
Shock: blood loss, acute myocardial infarction, pulmonary embolism or septicaemia.
Low urine output: inadequate fluid replacement intra-operatively and postoperatively.
Acute confusion: exclude dehydration and sepsis. May also be due to other various causes, including pain, sleep disturbance, medication or metabolic disturbances.
Nausea and vomiting: analgesia or anaesthetic-related; paralytic ileus.
Fever (see 'Postoperative fever', below).
Secondary haemorrhage: often as a result of infection.
Wound or anastomosis dehiscence.
Acute urinary retention.
Urinary tract infection (UTI).
Postoperative wound infection.
Bowel obstruction due to fibrinous adhesions.
Bowel obstruction due to fibrous adhesions.
Recurrence of reason for surgery - eg, malignancy.
Cosmetic appearance - depends on many factors (best discussed with surgeon).
Hi! I’ve been planning to do rhinoplasty. I’ve got a nasal hump. It’s been difficult for me to at times to breathe. I'm a little affected by theway it looks.I’ve decided to go for a surgery at Dr. Kreidstein’s clinic in Toronto.Being a working woman, I cannot take much leaves. I cannot spend too much time taking rest at home. I’m pretty much concerned regarding the recovery time. None of my relative or friend has gone through this. Hence, I do not exactly know how long it would take to recover. I can take a maximum of 3-4 days off. And I’ve read somewhere that in some surgeries it may even take lesser than that. Is it so?
Healing reduced to ⅔ normal after operations. Natural health Scientists and Doctors have proven that vitamin ‘C’ Speeds and improves healing and prevents infections. Start taking at least 6 grams ‘C; as soon as you can, continue after operation. If you have a problem with ‘C’, take a bit of baking soda with it or get buffered ‘C’. Research ‘dr f r klenner vitamin c’.
He had miraculous results with ‘C’, wonderful ‘read’. You will know more than 90% of conventional doctors know about healing and curing!
Rhinoplasty is commonly performed for aesthetic reasons, but is also performed to help patients with a deviated septum or breathing problems to help them breathe better. The surgery may be performed by an otolaryngologist,a plastic surgeon, or a maxillofacial surgeon, who specializes in treating the jaw, face, and neck.if you want to know more about Cosmetic surgery and want to clear your doubts ,you can consult any good health care center like Cheap MedCare , you can contact online through web site http://www.cheapmedcare.com and can get a free consultation.
5 Conditions That May Occur After Rhinoplasty Surgery
4. Nasal Septal Perforation and Nasal Obstruction
But Don't worry they are common condition.
Rhinoplasty in Indore
Expect significant swelling after your nasal surgery. Edema will last up to 8 weeks. If nasal bony work is done (infracture of the dorsal hump), swelling can persist for up to 6 months. A splint is often placed for 7 days and packing removed after 48 hours. Purple bruising under the eyes may appear, especially with fracturing of the nasal bone. Your surgeon may place you on antibiotics and tapered steroids to reduce inflammation for 5 days. Head elevation is essential and cold compression may also reduce swelling. Review all post-operative instructions with your surgeon prior to the surgery to avoid unnecessary problems.
The people who are having hump on their nose can be of many reasons. It can either be a family characteristic, recent injury, or trauma. The people who are having hump on their nose are usually not satisfied with their appearance as it spoils their facial look. Sometimes the bump looks larger than it actually, because there is a difference in the eyes and nose which make it look larger.
Today it is a very easy process to remove the bump from the nose and one of the success and modern approaches is rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty is depends on the type of nasal bump which the patient has. Some of the nose bumps can also be accomplished without breaking the nose. When large bumps are encountered, the bumps consist of cartilage and bone. In this type of case removal of large nasal bumps can result in a phenomenon known as an open roof deformity.
I am going to be blunt here..... as a nurse I can tell you that in MANY cases, this can be one of the most painful operations you can have! How about posting a pick of your nose so we can see what you feel you need to change?...
i've heard its not that painful at all...just the bruising. i think it depends what kind of operation you have and what needs changing.
I will post a pic of my nose as soon as i have one. Basically i have a big hump on mine, which is very simple to remove...apparantly hehe.
I am finding there is such a lack of support for this. I am booked to have mine done in April, but some days i feel really excited about it and cant wait...others i feel dread and i dont want it done. i just dont know what to do.
Since i wasx young i got picked on, bullied etc..but it just made me stronger really. I have a loving boyfriend who loves me just the way i am...but theres still that awful feeling of walking into a room and know immediately what everyone is looking at. I really need some help deciding.
The only advice I can give you is from my own experience: If you have a minor defect, don't bother with it. You may end up with worse problems than you went into the surgery with.
"I wish I had my old nose back".
I say it daily. My friends, colleagues, and family remind me daily that I used to be beautiful until I went crazy and ventured into a plastic surgeon's office. I would not wish the regret on my worst enemy. No one should hate who they are in the mirror and feel like somehow they had something to do with it- it really changes your life.
I had a rhinoplasty a few years ago and although the result is not perfect (the tip/nostrils were reduced and it is not completely symmetrical)I do not regret for a second that I did it. I was so self-conscious of my nose that I even felt uncomfortable each time people could see me in profile. I had wanted to get rid of my old nose so badly for so many years that nobody would have made me change my mind.
So ultimately this is the test. Only YOU know whether it is just a fad or a true problem that can be helped, bearing in mind that there are risks and that results are not guaranteed. I personally also found it difficult to get used to my new appearance because a new nose does change a face a lot (particularly if more or less every single bit of the nose has been changed!).
I feel really sorry for Carrie and Debi and I agree with them that if your nose is not too ugly to start off with, then there will be little improvement potentially but still the same risks.
And by the way, this 'nose with character' phrase is rubbish. If you hate your nose you'll never see it as 'having character'. It just makes you hate yourself.
I had my nose done by one of the supposed best surgeons in NYC. The only reason I cautioned you is because you have right to know that there are bad results out there along with good results, no matter who you go to.
I do not know what you look like, and maybe you are a good candidate for the surgery.
As for me, I went in to improve my photographic appearance. I had, among other things, modeled in NY in my 20's. My nose was basically good.
However, as I reached my middle 30's, my bridge thinned out making my tip and nostrils look bulbous and flared in photos. My surgery was to correct this minor defect. Instead, I came out with a "Barbara Streisand" nose with a truly bulbous tip and flaring nostrils. I have been ruined and none of the other deities of US plastic surgery are willing to attempt to fix this disaster for fear of worsening my situation.
However, if your only problem is a thick bridge or a hooked bridge and not a tip or alae problem, it seems most any competent rhino doctor can adequately correct this problem to most people's satisfactions.
So, I agree, it depends on what your nose looks like now - just be aware that the consequences, good or bad, are assumed by you for the remainder of your life!
Debi-I am sorry that you have to go through this as well-like you said I would not wish this on my worst enemy-if I had any idea the psychological/emotional trauma that would come as a result of a "nose job" I would have gone running from the plastic surgeons.
It is true-it changes your life-for the worse-I want to cry every time I look in the mirror-and to know I brought it all upon myself-sorry to be depressing-but I want to save others from the emotional hell I am in.
Leave your nose alone-it gives your face character and makes you who you are!!!
Absolutely agree with Debi. I can totally relate to you. I am living that experience everyday. Its the absolute worst feeling in the world. I am terrified of going for revision in the event that I end up with an MJ look. ... every single day and night I regret my decision... the worst thing was he is a top surgeon and I had the bad luck of experiencing a bad day with him.
I had a nose job 4 and a half years ago..and regret it. Its never felt right, if i shake my head it feels loose and i have a bump i never had before. since having children and quite a few painful bashes on the nose it seems worse, quite painful too. I saw my gp yesterday as i thought it was broken but she told me the cartiledge is damaged and takes forever to heal,but theres nothing can be done. well i suppose i could have revision surgery, but no way do i want to go through that again and risk the chance of my nose looking even worse. My advice-think really hard, even the best surgeons cant guarantee the finished result.
I don't know why everyone here has had such bad luck with their nose job, but I for one had a good experience.
I had a big italian nose and Hated it! I got teased in grade school and high school, so at age 14 I started begging my mom to let me get one. I got it done at age 16 and NEVER regretted it. I look normal now and only a few people have guessed that I had it done because my nose looks so "perfect". I also got the chin implant to even out my profile. I have had no problems with that, either, and it has been 16 years.
I used to always think and worry that someone was staring at my big nose, and now I haven't thought about it in years! I don't remember any pain, either. I felt like crap when I woke up from the surgery, and it sucked to breathe out of my mouth for days, but the only thing I remember hurting was when they yanked the gauze out of my nostrils a week or two after surgery, and that was only for a second like a really bad band-aid rip off pain. I also have a couple friends who have had this procedure done, and they have also had no problems or regrets as far as I know.
Wow, everyone really seems to be having some bad experiances, I to also wish to have my nose slightly altered, the only thing really annoying about it, its the major bump i have on it, so if i were to have that are trimed down, that would only be a simple process wouldnt it? as opposed to having for example your tip area altered?
Iam 16 years old and i just had my nose done, there were a lot of people saying that the results are going to change but Im going to trust the 5 doctors I saw rather than them. All 4 doctors said that the results are not going to change over time because at 16 a girls growth is generally finished, and Im happy to say that my nose looks 10 times better than it did before.
I had a rhinopalsty 5 mounths ago and I hate it. I cant look in the mirror I dont know what to do. I just found web site today and want to stop any one else who is concidering it. Think twice it can destroy your life trust me. Look at your sugern if the had one chances are not and the dont look perfect.
I am contemplating a nose job but looks like you had a bad
experience. do you think there are better doctors out there. who was this doctor who did your nose job. If you had gone to any other doctor would you have been better off. Can anybody share the names of expert doctors out there. I guess i am looking at approx 6000 dollars all in all. Boy i think ican as well go to thailand have some fun and get a nose job done for as little as 3000$. Looks like it is better to entrust our noses in the hands of a doctor who has done the max number of surgeries. I am think out loud guys...
I took my son when he was 15 for 2 consultations. The doctors both felt that although he was not finished growing, he was developed enough that they were comfortable performing it. He could (and so could his nose) still grow, but it would not be significant. One doctor said he had done a rhinoplasty on a boy age 14 which was very successful. My son decided against it. I'm hoping he'll change his mind but would never say anything. As many have said, it's a serious surgery that the person having it must be committed to. I had mine done when I was 15 (but I'm female), 35 years ago.
Your nose must have reached full development. This typically happens between the ages of 14 and 15 for girls and 16 or 18 for boys. The average age of teen rhinoplasty patients is 15 to 19. It is recommended to consult with a rhinoplasty specialist who will assess your nasal bones, cartilage and septum to determine if your nose has reached this stage.
The Ideal Age Of surgery is after 20 when you choose the surgery as beauty changes and want proper shape and size of nose.
But in accidental case their is no age limit.
Consult with your doctor first and chek all the pros and cons of surgery then go for it.
Before you able to undergo rhinoplasty, you must participate in lab testing and evaluations to determine the appropriate procedure, as well as to assess your overall physical condition. if you smoke must you must stop it prior to the procedure, as well as change in any medications you're taking such as anti-inflammatory drugs or anything that might increase bleeding during surgery. These issues should be discussed with your doctor.
It's kind of silly but I was wondering if anyone knew any good ways or products you could use to hide the effect of EC on your lips? I'm not talking about managing the condition, I'm talking about hiding the condition and its obvious damage on your lips. Purely cosmetic reasons.
For example: my lips are rather darker as I'm African American (lighter skinned), and you can notice on my upper lip where my lip is not affected (as it's darker there) and where my lips become affected by EC (it's lighter).
I also say this because I'm going to be getting my first job very soon and I'm super nervous about how I'll feel there and want to know if there's like a product or anything I could do to make my lips, specificallly upper lip, look more natural and darker. Hell, I'll even take makeup lol
(ALSO: quick question, does the whole lip laser surgery help with the appearance of Exfoliative Cheilitis?)
Hope you got my message, and forgive me for not having read the entirety of this post.
Anyway, aren't some African-American people's inner lips naturally pinker? There was a post here way back about people saying how Dwayne Wade has EC but I disagree. Walking around the streets and talking to people, I have noticed that it is common for some African-American people to have contrasting colors between the outer and the inner lips.
And no, surgery has been discussed here and some have tried only to report about it being a total waste of money.
I haven't done my research but I'm sure it's melanin. I'm fairly light in terms of shade yet my upper lip , the part that remains, is pretty dark. But I have seen brown and black people with pinker lips. My upper lip from what I can remember was consistently the same color, as was my lower. I'm thinking the multiple shaded lips is more common in those with darker skin.
As for Dwayne, I could see how people think that but I'm sure he doesn't have it.
And yeah, I never had and hope for lip surgery to cure but I was wondering if it would visually provide relief. I don't think I've seen any before and after pics of people who went through with the procedures.
Yes, it's melanin and I forgot to mention that too, I only notice the contrasting colors with African-American people whose skin tone are a lot darker.
I don't think he has it either. Most exercises, especially if you are an athlete, will somehow cause you to mouthbreathe at times and we know that doesn't help at all with EC. I actually had to stop playing soccer because of this. Even going to the gym and lifting really heavy makes me mouthbreathe.
So this post mainly has to do with your lips visually looking off due to the color? Or does this still have something to do with the crusts?
Yeah, this post was mostly about the visual affect that Exfoliative Cheilitis has on my lips rather than the crusts or other symptoms. If properly moisturized, all of my symptoms are basically suppressed but are still there. But while the symptoms are gone, my lips still look like they've been affected by EC. Fordyce spots, line where EC affects the lips, etc.
I can feel your feeling regarding darker lips, because i have blue lips too, like someone who smoke but im not. So to give them the natural color which are must be in reality, i use regularly natural recipes composed from natural products, i advice you to start use them but with continuity click here to read more about http://www.naturalremediesbeauty.com/body-beauty/herbal-products-for-lips-mouth/
I am concerned about my sister who Rhinoplasty two days before. Her eyes have bruised badly and appears brutal. We consulted her PS and he said it is normal after surgery and will go off. Just wanted to know from experienced guys. Anyone had gone through this?
Bruising around eyes are normal after Rhinoplasty surgery. There is nothing to worry since it will go off after a few days. Just take care of her and make sure she is not putting much strain on nose for a week.
Perhaps the most common question patients ask their doctors before and after surgery is whether their black eyes are permanent. The answer is a qualified no. Black eyes are a normal byproduct of nose surgery. They form when blood gets trapped along the inferior orbital rim. It can take weeks – or months – then for the deposition of blood cells caught up in the bruised skin tissue to finally break up and dissipate through normal blood flow.
The good news is that, barring any serious medical complication, black eyes eventually go away. It’s just a matter of time. How much time it takes varies depending on each patient’s physical makeup and capacity for healing. Yet, it always comes as a relief when the skin finally clears up and returns to normal.
Rhinoplasty in Indore
Hi! I'm 35 years old and living in Toronto. I’m preparing myself for rhinoplasty in August last week. My doctor, Dr. Kris Conrad asked me to be at his clinic three days before my surgery. Since I’m worried about this surgery the doctor wants to counsel me before the last minutes. I’m too excited and curious to know about many things like the recovery period of rhinoplasty, will I be able to eat food properly, how long should I take care of my nose, etc.. Will I be able to breath properly? Does anyone over here had done this surgery? Can you share your experience please? Thanks in advance.
I have this surgery two month ago and I got good result,As I also had injury on my nose because of an accident.My nose looked bad or you can say ugly,its not all that but I had breathing problem,Its very difficult for me live a peaceful life,then I went to a cosmetic surgeon,he told me about rhinoplasty.At that time I also have question in my mind which you have.But I would like to share my personal experience.I got good shape for my nose and also got solution of breathing problem.It was great and happier with its incredible result.If you have more confusion ask frequently to your cosmetic surgeon.
Her body was shutting down from a staph infection that doctors said was connected to the silicone injections. Her limbs were curling and turning black, the visible signs of necrosis. Brown recalled seeing her hands in the hospital, thinking, “Oh, my God. I am going to lose my hands. I looked at my feet ,and they were dead, too.”
Doctors had no choice. To save Brown’s life, they amputated her hands, feet and the flesh around her buttocks and hips in 27 surgeries. Somehow, she survived.
Brown is still embarrassed as she talks about the vanity that nearly cost her everything.
At the time, she was a successful hair stylist and owned a salon. When she wasn’t at her shop, she was busy raising two daughters. Life was good. But Brown always wanted to fix what she saw as her “flaw.”
Ever since she was a little girl growing up in Florida, Brown remembers being teased about having a flat butt. Growing up, she always wanted a fuller posterior and even had a mantra, “When I get me some money, I am going to get me some butt.”
In 2004, while she was working on a new client’s hair, she got her chance. The client happened to mention she did silicone injections cheaply. With a few sessions, she told Brown, she could obtain the shape she had always wanted. Brown was sold. A week later, she found herself in a house lying down in a bedroom receiving her first of four injections into her butt cheeks.
Following her second treatment, Brown remembers doubting her decision. “A voice just came to me like, ‘What are you doing? Are you serious? You are going to allow somebody to inject something into your body and you have no idea what it is.’” Brown decided that day to stop doing the treatments and never went back.
The true cost of the injections would come later, following years of pain and visits with doctors.
Brown’s story may be severe, but she is part of what the American Society of Plastic Surgeons calls a growing problem: patients bypassing doctors just to save some money on basic medical procedures.
“I think that’s awfully seductive to a person who doesn’t know there’s a problem,” said Dr. Richard Glogau, a clinical professor of dermatology at the University of California, San Francisco. He says he is seeing a disturbing trend, as patients turn to plastic surgeons such as him after getting botched facial filler injections.
The injections are used to smooth out facial lines. Some of the patients Glogau sees have traveled out of country and had these cosmetic procedures done cheaply. Others are purchasing cosmetic fillers from websites and self-injecting these dermal fillers into their faces. Often, the patients have no idea what’s in the dermal filler, nor do they receive the procedure from a licensed medical professional.
“People assume it’s just as easy as getting your hair colored, and at the end of the day it’s a medical procedure,” Glogau said.
Would-be patients need to know the facts
In the United States, there are only 21 FDA approved dermal fillers. These must be administered by a medical provider or under the supervision of a physician.
None of the FDA-approved dermal filler devices is approved for self-injection. There are hundreds of nonapproved dermal fillers available around the world. But Glogau cautions against having the procedure done out of country or trying to do it yourself. “I wouldn’t do it. I think you belong in a doctor’s office where a physician is supervising this and you can depend on where they have sourced the material.”
I do agree with your words. I know some of those people who went for a cheap, unprofessional surgical procedure. All of it finished in a disaster. One of my friend also went for a cosmetic surgery under Dr.Pirani,Toronto Plastic Surgery Center ( http://www.drpirani.com/ ). She is honestly happy with the procedure and outcome of the surgery.
I had a tummy tuck last march. I have not scarred well and took a very long time to heal. I had my drains in for over a month. Most people get theirs out in a week. I still have problems with swelling and my cellulite is worse than it has ever been. I am very thin and was before the surgery. I had a lot of loose skin and stretch marks from my 2 previous pregnancies. I did a couple of tests that I ordered on line for heavy metals and tested posative. I did a quick heavy metal cleanse and went to get my surgery. If I knew then what I know now. I started having breakouts about a year ago on my head and chin. I got my first stretch mark when I was 15 I started developing cellulit at 23 a few years after my tonsils were removed. I know now that my liver and lymph probably haven't been working very well for awhile. I am 36. I have been doing some dry skin brushing. And resumed my heavy metal cleanse. I did not scar well and was told I will need some kind of scar therapy. Is there a particular way for me to do the dry skin brushing. Have a permanently screwed up my lymph system with my tummy tuck and earlier tonsillectomy. I want to try and repair some of the damage that I ignorantly did to myself.
I can only comment on the scar and stretch mark issue. I have been using a dermaroller for both, and getting really good results. It can be a little painful, but the pain is quick and not lasting.
I was unlucky to get stretchmarks worse than others, but strangly lucky to respond to the therapy very well, some are almost gone and my C-section scar is disapearing nicely. It also tightened up my skin.
Not everyone will respond as well as I have though, but some get really great results. It's worth trying.
Lot's of info on the web, there are a couple of forums out there to get support from. I buy the cheap rollers from ebay though, I don't buy from the forums or the brand names.
I am 38 and I had both a tummy tuck & a breast lift at the same time in March of 2010. I breast feed 3 kids so my breasts were full on the bottom and flat on the top. They were also very big while breast feeding, usa size G. After choosing good doctor Dr Rino Lorenzo in Manila,Philippines, he and I decided on a lift with a small implant 32dd. It sounds big but it fits my frame nicely. Before my surgery I did a lot of running and got in good shape so after surgery I didn’t feel comfortable working out for about 8 weeks due to my tummy tuck procedure. I feel no regrets and my husband loves them!
Please take a look at this site if you are thinking about getting sinus surgery http://www.emptynosesyndrome.org
Its common for ENT surgeons to remove nasal turbinate tissue when performing sinus surgery.
It's common for pathetic ENT's. My ENT made me have a sleep study and immunocap, and extensive x-rays. He took out polyps which were literally choking me and causing me to stop breathing 75 times an hour. He wants me to lose 100 pounds, and he had to repair the latch quack's botched job, and remove tons of scar tissue. He had to perform a septoplasty (break and straighten nose). He's the first ENT that has been this thorough, and caring. ahe says my allergies cause me leucocites in my nose, suctioned out a bunch, and also gave me singulair and told me to cut out dairy and Sugar and processed foods. He doesn't just put on a band aid.
Before having sinus surgery unless it is life or death, I would look at other alternatives and my ND told me just ,simply consider cutting out dairy, Sugar and wheat for a month of two then add one back if you get stuffed up it means you are allergic to it and no amount of surgery is going to get rid of the problem it is food . If it is an environmental allergy, keep a diary of how your react to school, work, car and after a shower, you bathroom could have mold hidden somewhere a might help you nail down he cause!
In fact, ENTs are changing their views on sinus infections. They first thought it was bacterial, well then fungal. A new study now shows ENT as sinus infection at more of an immune response due to an allergy . Auto immune trigger. Or it might be something as simply as alkalizing.
Great plastic surgeons knows how much to narrow the nose, without compromising the structure.
If the nose is narrowed too much the structure collapses and you have breathing issues, and infections, and number of other symptoms.
My friend she is absolutely beautiful, a perfect nose Why she had rhinoplasty I still don't get it? She had it done outside the country while on vacation.
A year later she had a nasal collapse it was serious, she could not breath through her nose at all. She saw the very best in world who is in Beverly Hills. He did several sorts of tests, that took about a week to get them all done. She had surgery he fixed her issue and there were three surgeons involved. This reminded me of that true story about the life of Dr. Ben Carson a great movie!
When he is doing surgery there are many surgeons in the room with him. It is actual reenactment of what took place, it amazing to watch
Sorry, I digress one doctor grafted the cartilage from the rib, the other surgeon put the cartilage on the bridge and positioned to for the best structural integrity another surgeon stitched the cartilage into place! Top notch care and no bruises. She had some hyperbaric chamber pre and post op I did not even bother asking her the cost for it I can only imagine!
I had cosmetic surgery in argentina 06, did not use an agency, was the best thing i have ever done for myself.I am going back this year..... Used private physicians, and had a wonderful time. More than happy to answer any questions for any one who is considering this route. Warning do not use Agencies to acheive this goal..met many people at the motel who went thru agencies and the horror stories ! I just felt sorry for them .......bad new......
I did go to Argentina and had great surgeons,and had a wonderful time. I would highly recommend to any one going to BA for cosmetic surgery. While i was in BA i met many people who went thru Plentias, and were not happy, not the first one i met, there were repetitive complains : ... 1- That they had been there for a week and their surgery was not even scheduled ... 2- That they were shuffled from place to place, for blood test, x-rays, none of the test were in the same place, or scheduled on the same date ... 3- When they called plentias for help or information all they got was an answering machine ...

Although your post is old, I am writing to you in the hopes you are still active on this site. I have been investigating plastic surgeons, clinics, etc. in the U.S. to give my wife a complete body makeover, as she lost a lot of weight after bariatric surgery. She is a mature attractive, petite woman who now has loads of drooping skin on arms, tummy, back and inner thighs, not to mention very saggy breasts.
We have gone to a U.S. plastic surgeon in Florida used in the past, but when he gave us his price quotes, we realized we could not afford his prices (fairly reasonable by U.S. standards) and if we elected one aspect of the surgery, she would be left with all of the rest undone.
I would like to learn of your personal connections in BA, if you are willing to share them, including your latest trip. Please advise me and let me know how you would wish to communicate.
Thank you again for the efforts you put into your experience and sharing it with all of us.
congrats on your successful trip and cosmetic surgery!
that's the great thing about traveling abroad for cosmetic surgery--not only is it so much cheaper, but you also get a fantastic vacation out of the journey as well, get to see a different part of the world... and now i hear that czech republic, particularly cities like Prague and Karlovy Vary are hot spots for low cost cosmetic surgery as well... and it is a good idea to do a lot of research before you go, because , as you mentioned, you dont need to go through an agency, you can book a surgery in a clinic on your own... you just need to ask lots of questions, try to find former patients, look at before and after photos, and most important of all, make sure that the surgeon is legally certified and qualified to practice cosmetic surgery. this article actually has a lot of good points to consider before you go for surgery abroad, so i think it;s pretty helpful: http://www.cosmetic-plastic-surgery.info/cosmetic-plastic-surgery-prague-czech
I am a 31 year old mother of two. I have in the past year started to develop bags under my eyes. Sometimes they are worse than other days, however, they aren't very noticeable until I smile. This, I know, may seem trivial compared to those who have them showing all the time, but now I'm getting comments at work of, "Are you tired?" all the time now because of the bags. I do get about 7-8 hours of sleep a night, work out 4+ times a week and have a very well rounded diet. I drink about 8 glasses of water a day, sometimes 6-7 and sometimes more. I have tried many under eye creams and I can say that none of them have put a dent on this under eye problem. I would rather not turn to costmetic surgery at 31 years old for this. Does anyone have any suggestions?
I have came across a product call the Instantly Ageless. It is a powerful anti-wrinkle microcream that works quickly and effectively to diminish the visible signs of aging. Instantly Ageless revives the skin and minimizes the appearance of fine lines and pores for a flawless finish. This product can remove eye bags within minutes. There is no need of any surgery.

I’m a bikini model and is planning to have a breast augmentation surgery. Dr. Marcus Niessen has scheduled the surgery for the month September. Can anyone share your experience here to calm myself? How long after the surgery can I work again and workout? Has any bikini model had done this surgery and I’m just wondering if you could share your experience. Thanks!!
My DD is 13 years old and she has a crooked nose. She is sad that everyone is making fun of her nose So I thought that a nose surgery may help her to regain her confidence level. I have decided to take her to the Rhinoplasty Centre in Toronto for the nose surgery. Is 13 years old, too young to do rhinoplasty surgery? Will there be any difficulty in breathing after the surgery? Can anyone share your experience here? Thanks!!
Nasal congestion may either be immediate or chronic with rhinoplasty / nose job surgery. Most nasal congestion after rhinoplasty surgery is due to normal postoperative swelling. A majority of this internal, as well as external, swelling resolves within a couple weeks. However, it may take a couple months for the final swelling to resolve. Normal crusting inside the nose also keep the breathing down after surgery. It's important to follow the postoperative care instructions of your surgeon.
Long-term nasal congestion after nose job / rhinoplasty surgery is more of a concern, and due to many, many conditions, some of which may not be due to the original surgery. Fortunately, it is uncommon to have long-term nasal breathing difficulty after rhinoplasty. Allergies, nasal polyps, dust exposure, and sinus problems all cause nasal congestion. These nasal breathing problems can be evaluated by an otolaryngologist and treated accordingly.
Turbinate hypertrophy and deviated septum are common potential causes. These conditions are also usually easily treatable.
Lastly, scarring or major alteration in the structure of the nose after rhinoplasty surgery can contribute to breathing problems. Fortunately, this is usually the least common cause of breathing issues following surgery.
The potential risks associated with all surgeries include:
Infection with MRSA
Adverse Reaction to Anesthesia
Hematoma (when blood collects under the skin)
Risks that are specific to rhinoplasty include:
Scarring at the base of the nose
Bursting of small blood vessels on the surface of the skin
Permanent nerve damage
Under-or over- correction that necessitates revision rhinoplasty
Just check the photos of Michael Jackson to see what happens when rhinoplasty goes bad.
Hi! I’m 40 years old and have a tooth that is broken. I have consulted Dr. Todd, a dentist in Appleton Dental Clinic, Whitby. He told me to extract that broken tooth and make a bridge. But I’m not excited about extraction. Could an implant work here? If so, I could ask my dentist to do that for me. I’m scared of extraction. Please help me!!
