Dangers and Risks of Plastic Surgeries

As medical technology is progressing, the procedures are safer and more precise. But there are still some factors that can’t be controlled and are creating a risk in plastic surgery procedures. Some of them can be caused by surgeons mistake or some unpredictable reactions of body. We should not forget that human body is very complicated and not without flaws, and because of that there will always be a chance for bad plastic surgery to happen.

So what can you to the be prepared to dangers of plastic surgery? We think it is best if you have all information possible so you can decide for yourself is it worth it to undergo a certain plastic surgery or no. For example, risk of plastic surgery will be bigger if you already have a medical condition like heart disease or you are a smoker. Consequences can vary and some of them can’t be influenced, like the mistake of a plastic surgeon. Let us see what can be consequences of plastic surgery.

Scarring is one of the most common danger. There will always be some scars, if you have breast surgery or a face lift, but they are usually small scar. If you picked inexperienced surgeon or simply do not have enough hair to hide scars from facelift, you will have a problem with visible scars. Plastic surgeon will always ask you were do you want the scars to be if you are doing botox or rhinoplasty. You will have to make that decision.

Other dangers of plastic surgery are more serious then simple scars. You could develop a blood clot or infection from surgery. Sometimes those can’t be visible right away. If you get temperature after the surgery, it means you caught an infection and that needs to be taken care of. Besides that, blood clots can cause some trouble if they start moving through your body. It is important that plastic surgeon solve this problem as soon as possible when it is discovered.

Some of them can’t smile properly or look like they are always smiling. this can happen due to nerve damage and is a visible feature to everyone. A person with nerve damage can not move their muscles properly or feel anything in that area. This can last only for a few days or weeks, but it can also be a permanent nerve damage.

Some other dangers of plastic surgery include allergic reactions, tissue necrosis, sensory damage or changed color of the skin. It is also important on what part of the body the procedure it is being taken. There are different consequences for each part of the body, so you need to talk to your doctor first as well s with your plastic surgeon.


Just Another Reason Why I Don’t Like Plastic

I started not to like plastic since I knew that it is not biodegradable. I never think that I am a true environmentalist, but I know that it’s not a good thing when you dispose material to environment, but it is very hard (or impossible) to be degraded naturally. In the end, our world is going to be a big waste bin.

Today, I delivered an Environment Talk to my colleagues about the danger of plastic. I have talked about the types of plastic before, so what I did is just continuing the previous chapter. I was quite surprise, that even for me as a speaker, there is always something new that we discover when we share some information to others.

Some plastic may contain Bisphenol A, which is a chemical used in common plastic product, such as children’s toys, baby bottles and linings of most food cans. It has serious effect to our health, such as heart disease, diabetes and liver problem. For children, the effect could be more serious since it may cause brain developmental problems and hormonal systems dysfunction.

I remember, like Freon, people used to think that plastic are very usable material, without any weakness at all. Later on, people started to realize that it has detrimental effect to our health.

Where does Bisphenol A come from? It comes from the canned foods and it may also come from some foods which are contained in certain plastic.

If you buy highly acidic foods, such as tomato sauce, you will have BPA leaching from the cans. If you use polycarbonate plastic, then you heat it up in the microwave, the plastic will break down and release BPA. Some baby bottles may also contain BPA.

So, what can we do to avoid it?

Reduce consuming canned foods. It would be much safer if you use glass containers. BPA usually contained by plastic marked with a number 7 recycling code (polycarbonate). So please don’t use plastic with this number. Plastic with a number 2 recycling code (polyethylene plastic) is much safer than polycarbonate.


Plastic Water Bottle – A Brief Introduction

Bottles come in many shapes and sizes, colors and dimensions. One of the most common ones found is the plastic water bottle. Made from plastic, it normally has a tapered neck, a wider body with an aperture at the top. Generally, the mouth of the bottle is sealed with a bottle cap made of plastic. These plastic bottles are characteristically utilized to house liquids such as water, soft drinks, ink, milk, cooking oil and various types of medicine.

The first known structure of natural plastic was formulated by none other than Leonardo Da Vinci. He fashioned plastic from glues derived from animals and plant life, and pooled with organic fibers. Upon aeration, the final result of this combination would be very similar to the plastic we have this day.

However, it was Alexander Parkes who initiated the original man-made usable plastic, nicknamed Parkesine at the International Exhibition, London in 1862. What would have been a promising start was dampened by the fact that producing plastic at the time was costly plus combustibility issues, the product became outdated.

Although plastic bottles were primarily utilized for commercial purposes in 1947, the production costs sky-rocketed. It was only in the 1960s that high-density Polyethylene was pioneered, and was speedily accepted by manufacturers due to its lightweight disposition and cheaper assembly costs. This greatly affected the food industry, as plastic bottles quickly replaced its glass predecessor.

Let us look at the more common types of plastic water bottles, their quality grades, conventions and restrictions. Plastic bottles are manufactured utilizing an array of techniques, and material selections depend upon relevance. High Density Polyethylene or HDPE, is by far, the most extensively employed resin for plastic bottles. This substance is popular because it’s cost-effective, shock-defiant and possesses a compatible moisture blockade. HDPE, naturally lucid and supple, is well-matched with an ample assortment of products as well as acids and caustics, but is not attuned with solvents. It also offers superior defense below sub-zero temperatures, but cannot be utilized with results packed at over 160F or those which are in need of an airtight seal.

Low Density Polyethylene or LDPE is alike in composition with HDPE. The only differences lie in its deeper lucidity, its more yielding nature and not as chemically resistant. However, LDPE bottles are more expensive than HDPE. Polyethylene Terephthalate, or more commonly referred to as polyester, is universally utilized for beverages which are carbonated and also as water bottles. Polyester is the plastic of choice because it has excellent alcohol and vital oil obstruction properties, plus its durability against shock and tensile strength is undefeatable. Polypropylene or PP, has an elevated constancy when exposed to high temperatures, which is why it is ideal to house warm liquids such as syrups. PP has a superb chemical resistance and can take heat for up till 200F. It is unsuitable to house liquids of cold temperature.


How To Pick The Right Facial Cosmetic Plastic Surgeon

When you make the decision to move forward with either your reconstructive facial plastic surgery or cosmetic surgery you will want to pick the right surgeon for you. Informed patients benefit immensely from understanding their doctor’s medical background and specialties and identifying their core surgical skills prior to their office visit. Facial plastic surgery is a big decision and in order to have a solid and positive outlook on their prospective procedure (and the plastic surgery industry in general) patients expect a smooth and professional experience from the office. However, by doing some basic homework in advance a patient can make better informed decisions and receive far more out of their initial consultations than those starting from scratch.

There are thousands of facial plastic surgeons and all will promise to provide you with the best quality of care. While all may be able to offer you quality care, many may not be a good fit with your needs and personality. Meeting with a few doctors for an initial consultation should give the patient a feel for who is “right” for them and weed out who is not. Trust your gut, it is always right.

Here are some things a potential cosmetic surgery patient should inquire about prior to their surgical

consultation and surgery:

Medical Background

Most patients just assume when they are sitting down with a cosmetic plastic surgeon that they have the proper credentials to handle their case but the reality is that not everyone out there is licensed properly to perform certain facial surgical procedures. Be inquisitive and ask about a surgeon’s background to make sure they are allowed to perform anything on you and how often they perform these procedures. Most plastic surgeons will be more than happy to discuss this information with you; they will probably even show you their certificates! Steer clear of anyone that can not show you their credentials or provide you with patient referrals.

Physical Location

The evolution of the web has made the world a much smaller place. Patients have access to doctors from around the world at their fingertips. While most patients are interested in a local option for their facial reconstructive or plastic surgery work consider the best doctor for the job and then your location. It is not uncommon for patients to fly to a destination surgery. Not only do they benefit from receiving the very best care available but also from a lack of hometown distractions from recovery, anonymity, and a holiday of sorts.

Operation Cost

Surgical costs can vary greatly from office to office. Patients are often drawn to the least expensive option looking for the best “deal” available while others are drawn to the most expensive option with the “you get what you pay for” theory. While cost is an important component of your decision, consider what you are getting for the cost – many offices may combine a few procedures into one while others may itemize your surgery. Are the numbers way off from the rest? Talk with the office about what each procedure entails with the price tag. A side note: Do not be dissuaded by an office that is unable to provide you with surgical costs prior to meeting with you. Plastic surgery offices generally are not able to provide a surgery “price list” because surgery costs vary depending on the amount of work required for each procedure. A facelift is not one size fits all. There are a number of variations and each variation has a different price tag – usually based on the length of surgery, location of the procedure, and its difficulty – and are best determined during a consultation.

Board Certification

Make sure you pick a board certified surgeon to perform any surgery on you. Board certification means that the doctor has completed and passed an examination displaying their expertise within their field of medicine. This will allow you to rest assured that the most qualified surgeon possible will be performing your surgical procedure. A word of caution: a doctor may be board certified in one area but not in others. Confirm that he or she is board certified for the procedure(s) you are contemplating. You would go to your board certified dentist for a facelift, would you?
