As many of my readers know I’m a nurse. I’ve worked taking care of people in their homes, people recovering from orthopedic surgeries in a special orthopedic hospital, worked in a pain clinic for 10 years, and then when I changed jobs and started working in the ER where I’m currently employed but off due to illness, I also worked for a plastic surgeon for about a year, at the same time as I worked in the ER.
Having worked in a plastic surgery clinic, I know that there are many reasons why people chose to have work done. I think most people believe that people get cosmetic work done due to vanity, but having worked in the field and directly with patients who’ve had various forms of work done I can tell you that the majority of cosmetic surgery that I’ve helped people with has been to correct true physical problems. Problems such as breasts of two different sizes, breast reduction, drooping eyelid, crooked nose or deviated septum, bad scars, and sagging skin due to massive weight loss just to name a few.
If you’ve ever considered having plastic surgery you might be interested in visiting Plastic Surgery 101. It’s a resource guide for plastic surgery. The guide was created by a prominent Los Angeles plastic surgery doctor.
Within the pages of the Plastic Surgery 101 site you’ll find detailed information on many types of Plastic surgery procedures that are commonly performed. Procedures like facelifts, eyelifts, browlifts, Rhinoplasty, Breast augmentation, Breast lift, Breast reduction, liposuction, tummy tuck, plastic surgery for men, gynecomastia, skin resurfacing and laser, Botox, Restylane, Sculptra and other Injectible Fillers as well as many other common treatments.
The Rhinoplasty information page discusses some of the innovative procedures being done at the Beverly Hills rhinoplasty clinic. You’ll also find photo galleries with a number of before and after photos, news and trends, and a FAQ section on the site.
The information pages about the various types of procedures discuss exactly what the surgery is meant to correct, who the surgery is meant for – as in are you a good candidate fro the surgery?, the risks of the procedure, how to prepare for the surgery as well as what will happen on the day of your surgery, and what to expect after the procedure and the healing process your body will go through. Photos and diagrams accompany many of the articles which I think makes them all that much easier to understand.
As a nurse I would recommend that you do some research if you are considering a plastic surgery procedure. Plasticsurgery101.net certainly seems like a great place to start your research.
