Plastic surgery isn’t just for beast augmentation and liposuction. Just a few weeks ago the first American to have a full face transplant held a press conference to share how he was doing and he’s doing pretty good. He won’t win any beauty contests, but he reported being able to drink from a cup and has regained movement in his cheeks, mouth, nose and forehead. He’s also grown a beard. It’s a testament to science that a man who did not have a face two years ago is now able to lead a comfortable life.
Plastic surgery can also help those with chronic migraines. When all other options have been exhausted, sufferers of chronic migraines can turn to one of the few trained in the procedure to have the pressure relieved from the nerves around the eyes, which is thought to be a possible cause of headaches. Similar to an eyelift, patients have fat deposits removed from around their eyes, relieving pressure and hopefully eliminating some of the headaches. The procedure is not common and not many surgeons do it and it can have some minor side effects, but it has helped quite a few people who were in great pain.
We don’t do migraine surgery or face transplants at Kaufman and Clark Plastic Surgery in Sacramento and El Dorado Hills, but we can make you sexy! Come visit us today for a consultation regarding breast implants, liposuction, eyelift, breast lift or a host of other procedures.
