bb19e7add31ab2a9b449e8e177fef4caYou should know too well that plastic surgery is one of the things that you should really take into consideration and think about carefully. There are lots of consequences and risks in plastic surgery, and chances are, if it wasn’t properly executed, it can make your life a living hell. So, in order to ensure that you are making the right decision, here are some factors that you need to consider first before undergoing plastic surgery.

Check the background of your practitioner

It is important that you only choose a practitioner with a good reputation and has proven to be qualified in performing the said surgery as well as the research. Make sure that you know their background—how long have they been dealing with patients, what areas do they specialise in, and their educational background, if you can. In that way, you can evaluate whether or not he is the right doctor for you.

Talk to them in person

It is important that you two have met first before they perform the procedure. If there is something that you would like to talk about, now is the right time to ask for their opinions. If they refuse to meet you in person, you should start looking for another one because a professional practitioner will not hesitate to talk to their patient just before the procedure. Also, make sure that you are comfortable with the doctor you are dealing with and you trust them because basically, you are risking your life and it is on their hands.

Conduct a research on the said procedure

Before you plan on making any cosmetic procedure, make sure that you understand the process by conducting a research. Watch videos, read articles and research papers, read testimonies from people who have undergone the same procedure and as much as possible, talk to them and see how did it go.

Make sure that you understand the risks

You must be aware that in any cosmetic procedure that you take, there are possible risks associated with it. When you are talking with your practitioner, make sure that they are honest with the possible risks and the dangers involved in conducting the procedure. If they are claiming that there are no risks involved in performing the procedure, you should immediately look for another one breakthrough_breast_cancer_logobecause they cannot be trusted.

Do not pay attention to advertising and low prices

There are some who offer discounts and low prices in the market today, but remember that this is a cosmetic procedure that we are talking about and you should eliminate all risks involved as much as possible. Do not pay attention to those who are advertising about promos and discounts—while it might be tempting, you can’t trust someone who offers such a low price in performing a very dangerous and complex plastic surgery. Do not risk your beauty and your life in promos and discounts around because the results are not always good.

The Life And Times Of Archibald McIndoe

firstYou may have heard about Archibald McIndoe, famous historical surgeon, and pioneer of plastic surgery. But there probably is not a lot that you know about his personal or professional life.

We may all know the great Archibald McIndoe as the founder and father of plastic and facial reconstruction surgery, but most people do not know much else. Nor do they know his motivations for pioneering the field of plastic surgery. Unlike today, where the main reasons for getting plastic surgery done is self-improvement. Dr Archibald McIndoe actually pioneered the field for more altruistic reasons.

Let us start at the beginning to where and when he was born. Archibald McIndoe was born in New Zealand on May 4, 1900. Archibald McIndoe was not actually born to a family of scientists or doctors. Instead, his parents were artists. He was the second of four children between a printer, father and an  artist, mother.

The first hospital he served at was at Walkato Hospital in New Zealand. Shortly after that, he was awarded to go on a scholarship program to study anatomy at the world famous Mayo Clinic in the United States. To go on the trip, he had to keep his marriage secret with his new wife Adonia Altkin. He had to keep his marriage secret because the scholarship program was only for single men.

After he impressed his professors at the Mayo Clinic, some senior doctors of his suggest that he move to further continue his studies. He then moved to London on following his advice.

He actually could not find proper work in London, and this may have been a good thing for the medical world in general. Unable to find employment as a doctor of anatomy, he joined his cousin who worked as a plastic surgeon. His cousin, Harold Giles, ran a private practice for medicine and plastic surgery. First working as a medical assistant to his cousin, Archibald eventually climbed up the ranks. In a few years, he was awarded as the Surgeon General of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. He also became the consultant for the Royal North Stafford Infirmary; he was their consulting plastic surgeon. And then a few years later, he was then awarded again as a plastic surgeon consultant for the whole Royal Air Force.

When World War II rolled around, he was then appointed as the head plastic surgeon for the whole country of Britain. This was a busy time for McIndoe, as there were many patients who had to undergo some form of reconstruction surgery because of the war. He even opened his own plastic surgery hospital and named it the Centre for Plastic and Jaw Surgery. He was known as a brilliant and capable plastic surgeon, where he worked on patients who had bad burns and even was able to reconstruct some form of eyelids.

While at the hospital he managed to invent new techniques for plastic surgery. He had many famous patients treated at his hospital, such as Geoffrey Page, Jimmy Edwards, and Richard Hillary. These famous patients jokingly called themselves the Guinea Pigs Club.

He also invented a new form of skin graft techniques. These new pioneering and ground-breaking forms of plastic surgery were used on many World War II veterans, which vastly improved hundreds of people’s lives.

Archibald died on April 1960, just only at 59 years of age. Today he is still honoured for the work he did with war veterans and burn victims. Many health institutes and hospitals are proudly using his name!
