Famous rapper, Kanye West, found himself on a rather ugly side of plastic surgery when in 2007, his 58 year old mother, Donda, passed away due to complications with her liposuction and breast surgery after being performed by unqualified hands. Kanye is now banning his girlfriend, Kim Kardashian, from pursuing plastic surgery.
Kim, an open user of the non-surgical BOTOX® Cosmetic, has allegedly been banned by Kanye West from pursuing cosmetic surgery. Kanye’s decision is influenced by the loss of his mother, Donda, who had died due to complications after undergoing liposuction and breast reduction. Due to health problems, Donda had been turned down for her procedure by several plastic surgeons before finding one that would treat her.
According to RadarOnline.com, Kim, who has recently given birth to daughter North West, “wanted to have surgery after giving birth because she wanted a head start on losing her baby weight.”
Making Sure Your Surgery is Safe
Like Kanye, many people are often turned off to plastic surgery due to complications that have occurred in the past – either a situation they had seen on the news or one that had happened to someone they know. It is important to realize that pursuing treatment from an untrained “surgeon” is highly dangerous and can lead to life-threatening issues even with small, non-invasive treatments. These unqualified persons often offer ridiculously low prices and accept all patients as an attempt to lure in more patients. The risks involved with dealing with these untrained “surgeons” is just not worth it!
Board-certified plastic surgeons are trained in administering procedures safely and effectively while providing their patients with guidelines and recommendations that are in the patient’s best interest. Listening to your board-certified plastic surgeon is key. If they don’t believe that you are right for a certain procedure, it is for your own safety and they will work with you to find an alternative solution.
Still, there are many who simply aren’t ready to undergo surgery for whatever reason. While board-certified plastic surgeons can ensure a patient’s safety, there are also many less invasive approaches. Patients who want to enhance their appearance but are not yet willing to undergo surgery, may feel more comfortable with non-surgical treatments such as BOTOX or IPL Photorejuvenation.
