Angela Chouaib on Why Multiple Procedures are a BAD Idea

Angela Chouaib, MD and founder of Secret Surgery, gets asked about multiple procedures on a regular basis – ‘Can I get a tummy tuck with a boob job?’ or ‘How about a labiaplasty with breast implants’? The truth is, any surgeon could perform even ten procedures on a patient in one go, and you could have yourself a full body makeover! But Secret Surgery do not, and will not, do that. Here’s Angela Chouaib explaining why.

At Secret Surgery, we work to the highest standards and take the greatest care to ensure our patients’ safety. If that means that we don’t offer certain options to our patients, then… that’s how it goes! Just think of us as your cosmetic surgery parents – we know what’s best. There are six main reasons why multiple procedures are a BAD idea:

1. It’s not a good idea to keep anyone under general anesthetic for that…

Reconstructive surgery boosts confidence

Many plastic surgery procedures offer a way to reconstruct issues that affect the physical appearance. If you were injured or have had a condition that changed the way you look, you should consider some operations that may help. Take a look at a few of the surgeries available to people who need a reconstructive operation done.

Some people get a nose job because they do not like the way their nose looks. Others get one because they are having trouble breathing after an injury to the area. Whether you were in a car accident that broke your nose or you somehow got hit in this part of your face, you should look into plastic surgery as a way to solve the problem. Your doctor will likely recommend a nose job if this facial feature is now crooked or swollen, and especially if you cannot breathe easily due to the injury.

Another common reconstructive operation involves the breasts. If you had breast cancer and had to get a mastectomy to remove one or both breasts, you may be looking for a way to get your curves back in the future. Breast reconstruction can do this for
you. On the other hand, if your breasts are too large for your frame, a reduction may be the best choice for you. If they are causing your shoulders to hunch and your back to hurt, it may be time to get them reduced, and most doctors in the plastic surgery field can do the job.

If you have microtia, causing one or both ears to appear small or malformed, you can get an otoplasty. This procedure involves having a doctor modify your current ears or even add some if you do not have any. An operation can make a big difference in your appearance and self-esteem, so you should look into option when you are not happy with how your ears look right now. Even if you do not have microtia, but another reason altogether for your ears to look malformed, you can likely benefit from plastic surgery.

Many doctors in this field are able to complete these and other reconstructive procedures. Of course, some specialize in one or a few of them. You should seek out a surgeon with years of experience providing great results to people like you who are looking for ways to improve different aspects of the appearance. This should allow you to look forward to seeing the outcome and finally feeling more confident about certain features.

6 Things That Can Happen After Gastric Surgery If You Don’t Follow the Rules

4554775-close-up-of-red-ripe-apple-in-female-s-hands-with-her-slim-figure-at-backgroundGastric surgery is without a doubt one of the most popular surgeries we perform. The greatest risks of the gastric surgery come from not following the diet properly. If you eat too much or eat food that you shouldn’t, you could have complications. Here’s a countdown of the six things that could happen to you if you don’t follow the rules!

  • Dumping syndrome. This complication occurs most often after eating foods high in sugar or fat. These foods travel quickly through your stomach pouch and “dump” into your intestine. Dumping syndrome can cause nausea, vomiting, dizziness, sweating and eventually diarrhea.
  • Dehydration. Because you’re not supposed to drink fluids with your meals, some people become dehydrated. You can prevent dehydration by sipping 48 to 64 ounces (1.4 to 1.9 liters) of water or other low-calorie beverages throughout the day.
  • Nausea and vomiting. If you eat too much, eat too fast or don’t…
