Why Rhinoplasty Is The Most Difficult?

Deciding whether or not to operate is probably more diffficult in rhinoplasty surgery than in almost any other area of aesthetic surgery, for a surgeon. The psychological effects of a nose which is seen to be unsightly by the patients have likely been present for many years, often present in adolescence. Among other factor, the patient may have been teased by peers, or felt rejected emotionally; felt to be ethnically conspicious. Expectations of the operation may run unrealistically high. Because, the effects of the surgery do not appear immediately, disappointment may set and be persistent.

Restoring Balance And Maintaining Natural Appearance

Rhinoplasty does not necessarily mean reducing the size of the nose which looks too large. This appearance may be an optical illusion created like a nasal bridge which is disproportionally low and wide for the tip region. Instead of reducing the tip which may result in an operated upon look, the surgeon may feel augmenting the bridge area may restore balance and maintain a natural appearance. Maryl Streep's nose is always been a good example of one which has grace and proportion giving an appearnce of beauty without being small.

Modern Aprroach Of Rhinoplasty

The modern approach of rhinoplasty has gradually been developed through the experience and teaching of surgeons. This involves selective, subtle reduction and refinement of the bone and cartilage combines. The key to this concept is that no two noses are alike. So each nose must be assessed carefully as the sum of many parts of the face. The aim is to create a nose which has balance and harmony with the rest of the face.

Rhinoplasty For Small Noses

In contrast for the patients who need nose reduction, patients of non-European who often have noses that are small or thin cartilage and thick skin leading to a nose which is fleshy appearing and lacks definition. In these type of noses, the main attention is directed toward augmenting the bridge and middle third, while giving the tip a narrower to have better shape. This often accomplished using implant of mad-made materials. In some cases, it may be done with cartilage or bone grafts.

Rhinoplasty For The Shape Of The Nose

Most patients who requested rhinoplasty are concerned with the shape of their nose and usually feel one area or the whole nose is too large. The nose must be viewed as a complex structure made up of many structures which need to blend together with the rest of the face. No operation is right for every patients. The surgery must be carefully planned to respect the need for balance and proportion in each patient. That is why, rhinoplasties which were done in earliest years and which are still done by some surgeons, involve reduction of cartilage. This shaves off, narrow the bones and shorten the nose. This often produce a nose that eventually looks like it has been partially ampulated and may even look mutilated.

Root Of Cosmetic Surgery

The history of plastic surgery in intimately related to reconstruction of the nose. Reconstruction of the nose as done in India using the forehead and the use of the skin of the arm in 14th century. Nasal surgery is the root of cosmetic surgery.

The operation has given many patients great satisfaction and increased self-esteem but it is regarded by experienced surgeon as one of the most difficult procedure. The nose is always prominent in the middle of the patients face. Unfortunately the result is difficult to evaluate. It takes many months or longer for the consequences of surgery to become clear. What you may look good two or three weeks after the surgery many not last over time. Plastic surgeons are constantly re-evaluating known techniques and working with new ones for more long lasting, dependable and predictable results.

Some Hair-Care Products Can Cause Asthma

I didn't realize that some bleaches used in hair-care products can cause asthma like, Ammonium Persulfate, Potassium, Persulfate and Sodium Persulfate. There are evidense that some food additives can be dangerous to asthmatics, people with eczema and people who are sensitive to aspirin.

Several of these additives are used as cosmetics ingredients but there is no scientific evidence that they are dangerous to asthmatics. But there is also no scientific evidence that they are safe. Many of these ingredients have restrictions on their use and several have been linked to adverse effects such as contact allergies and dermatits.

Benzoate Can Be Bad

I have a slight asthma so I know and I can feel which product that I am more sensitive with. I must agree in some way that benzoic acid can be one objectable and can produce a very serious disturbances on the metabloic functions like injury to digestions and health. However, there is one confusion to be drawn from this, and that is the interest of health both benzoic and bezoate of soda should be excluded from food products.

Before, benzoic acid, sodiun benzoate and a host of related compounds such as the parabens, are still widely used in foods and cosmetics, including the fizzy drinks that is being consumed by children. They are actually antimicrobial preservatives. Meaning, they are chemicals that kills cells to prevent them from reproducing and infecting the food, and cosmetics. This causes gastric iriitations, numbling of the mouth, urticaria and it affect asthma sufferers.

Some parabens dissolve in water while others soluble in oil. Most cosmetics have both watery and oily ingredients blended togetehr in the form of emulsions. This way, preservatives must be used so both parts of the cosmetic are protected. This is why many use parabens. However, manufacturers are required to follow strict requiremnets for microbes contaminations.

Some Risk Of Laser Resurfacing

Even if bloodless, laser resurfacing is a surgical techniques, there are still risk. The risk of Hypo (under) and hyper (excess) pigmentation are probably significantly less than with traditional resurfacing, but still exist.

Creams are prescribed to help reduce these risks. Infection can occur, and since skin infections most commonly result from bacteria residing in the skin, antibiotics are routinely used for several days after surgery.

Viral infection from the cold sore virus can also be re-activated. Because many of us have the virus even if we do not get cold sores, an anti-viral medication is also used routinely. Beginning two days prior to the precedure and continuing fro several days afterwards. If a cold sore does appear prior to the surgery, the surgery date should be postponed.

Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing

Many facelift patients will benefit from resurfacing around the mouth to reduce the vertical lipstick or smoker lines. The typical shiny, pale result from dermabrasion or peels in this area is rarely seen.

Lower eylid resurfacing is commonly done with a lower eyelid blepharoplasty done through an incision on the inside of the lid, instead of the traditional approach through the incision under the eyelashes The skin tighthening done this way seems to have a much lower risk of complications.

Full face laser resurfacing is now an accepted and widely used treatment for sun-damaged skin, acne scarring and mulitple fine line wrinkles.

Loosing Excess Fats After Surgery

I did 30 minutes slow dancing today as I always do before I had my surgery. But I felt something that tells me, that my body is not ready to start being as active as before, yet. I feel bad because I wanted to loose some fats and I thought I can start doing my usual routine slowly. But I guess I have to wait a little longer untill I feel that my body is ready.

Even if my doctor tells me that everything is okey, it's still my body and I am the only one who can tell whether my body is ready or not, to do certain things or activities. I stopped doing slow walking when I went back to work after my surgery. I guess I have to start doing it again for at least 30 minutes after work.

Reduced Risk Of Complication

The major innovations for the past few years has been the introduction of pulsing technology, which has the ability to send very short burst of CO2 laser energy to the skin which creates much heat in the deeper tissues and allow a much more controlled removal of the skin than dermabrasion and chemical peels.

For many plastic surgeons, because of the precision, the bloodless characters of the surgery and the reduced risk of complications, laser surfacing has replaced chemical peel and dermabrasion.

Use Of Laser For Skin Rejuvination

Lasers have been used in medicine and surgery for years. However, technology has recently been developed to allow the precise use of lasers for dermatologic and plastic surgical skin rejuvination. A carbon dioxide laser beam normally vaporizes anything containing water, and rapidly cuts through skin and any other organs and structures. It's usefulness as a cutting tool, however seems to be limited; the bulk and cost of the laser do not seems to be justified by its ability to reduce bleeding and post-operative bruising and pain.

Several years ago, after a careful evaluation of the CO2 laser as a surgical scalpel for cosmetic surgery concluded the main value of the device was a promotional tool for the surgeon.

Result Surgery Scars Depends On The Location

Location plays a key role in the outcome of surgery scars. Incisions in the upper eyelids, the lips, the groin, and the armpits are especially good. Incision in the centre of the chest, upper back and upper outer arm are particularly prone to bad scars. The face tends to form good scars, if they are properly planned.

Unsatisfactory scars are either thicker, wider, depressed or raised, uneven, or running in a different direction than the normal skin lines.

C'elle Stem Cell Innovation for Women

If you are looking for a unique and meaningful gift for yourself or someone you love, you can take a look at the new stem cell research innovation, C'elle, harvested from menstrual fluid.

The C'elle stem cell is non-controversial; highly proliferative; and can transform into many other stem cell types such as cardiac, neural and bone. A scientific stem cell research study on menstrual stem cells was recently published in the highly respected peer-reviewed scientific journal of Cell Transplantation. C'elle is in three pre-clinical (non-human)stem cell research studies. C'elle may have significant potential for future human stem cell therapies to possibly treat life affecting disorders such as diabetes; stroke and heart disease as well as possible anti-aging, burn and wound healing therapies. Women can now invest in future potential healthcare and well-being by ordering C'elle today for an affordable limited-time introductory price. Stem cell research has determined that C'elle is a 100% match for the woman donor and may possibly match her first-degree relatives such as a parent, sibling or child. The time for C'elle is now while a woman's body is healthy and disease-free.

Normal Scars Formation

Normal Scars formation develops according to a rough schedule. During the first few weeks, the scar develops some streght. It usually looks a little pink when the stiches are removed, but is flat. From 3 to 6 weeks, it becomes thicker and often redder, as it gains collagen protein, and it looks it worst during this phase. Then maturation begins that will take about 6 to 18 months, or even longer. During this phase, the scar continues to get stronger but gradually flattens, softens and become pale.
