That's too bad and that safety is one of the reasons I am hesitant about cosmetic surgery and the other being that I simply cannot afford it right now.

This was a woman who was naturally beautiful (with a few tweaks here and there) and unfortunately, after having her children she took her surgery (surgeries) much too far. Sad.

We always look at these stories like "oh that would never be me" but I think the truth is we are all vulnerable. Anyone that has the interest and means to get cosmetic surgery can be prone to taking it too far. You never know when you've taken it "one operation too far" until it has already happened. Usually the consequences are only cosmetic but sometimes (like this) they can be tragic.

Hi ALL! I am a newbie, although this BBL will be my 3rd AND FINAL procedure! But according to the news that was submitted about her, she was too thin, and when the ps went to inject the purified fat, something went into her blood stream.

I am especially concerned about what was said in the consult! Clearly, a doctor is supposed to be able to assess the likelihood of any and all outcomes, (ALTHOUGH WITH THESE SURGERIES, THERE ARE NO 100% GUARANTEES) good or bad, before proceeding. In our consultations we are sure about what WE want, but we need to be informed about what is realistic and what is not, but most importantly, we HAVE to ask the questions to make sure this ps knows his/ her stuff or off we go to the next.

That is one of the major issues with plastic surgery. Sometimes patients do not have realistic expectations, which leads to overall dissatisfaction with their surgical results. This has helped to contribute to surgeons becoming increasingly inflexible concerning revisions, as well as paperwork geared toward the benefit of the surgeon. It is unfortunate as this also helps to contribute to the greed and lack of responsibility on behalf of the surgeon.

Many surgeons are unrealistic as well. While trying to benefit financially they are actually ruining people's lives, telling them they can do anything for the patient, and that the patient's unrealistic expectations are reasonable. They are taking advantage of patients that might be quite malleable and vulnerable. Scary and unethical.

Many individuals who get PS really need mental health assistance, not PS. That is why I professionally believe it should be mandatory for all PS candidates to receive a mental health consultation clearance prior to surgery. So many individuals with mental health afflictions including Body Dysmorphic Disorder fly under the radar, thinking they will get a particular procedure (or procedures) and their lives will be perfect. The only thing that is perfect is the surgeon's bank account, as they keep coming back for more and more alterations.

Good points! The thing I keep in mind is what I read on one of my PS's pamphlets as saying "Plastic surgeries will NOT make people like you more! It will not make you love yourself. You already have to have a sense of self love." Or heck yeah, you will be spending hefty amount for psychotherapy just for somebody to tell you that! :-) Are you having any procedures done?

Currently no, but I have in the past.

Plastic surgery is a part of both my personal and professional life. :)

The idea of injecting loose silicone anywhere in the body is crazy :eek: What's scarier is that some plastic surgeons are trying to legalize silicone injections in the US...
