Plastic Surgery Vacations

Last Friday we posted the following trivia question Name a reason why it's NOT a good idea to travel internationally to have plastic surgery? Everyone answered correctly – good job! A typical plastic surgery/travel website offers, “Stay in the heart of Chiang Mai and explore the art and culture of the 700-year-old city while you recuperate after plastic surgery.” A Philippines destination website sweetens the pot with, “Enjoy a round of golf after your plastic surgery,” also including roundtrip airfare, hotel accommodations, free day trips and spa treatments. You may ask yourself, “What is the likelihood of my teeing off the day after my plastic surgery or boarding a tour bus at 8 AM to enjoy some ruins?” If you’re a cockeyed optimist, you may...

What is General Anesthesia?

Last week we posted a trivia question on Facebook relating to Anesthesia and received great feedback! General anesthesia is a type of sedation that uses several medications to render the patient unconscious and unable to move.

A Board Certified Anesthesiologist provides anesthesia for all of... Continue Reading
