About complications

Complications can always occur in the treatment of plastic surgery, whether surgical or non-surgical.

As for laser equipment used in the field of aesthetic medicine, new models rooted in new technology are appearing every few years, partly due to the influence of rapid technological progress. For example, a tattoo that has been put into the body has been treated with a new model of pico laser in recent years. If the patient’s skin condition matches the characteristics of the device, I think it will bring great results. On the other hand, it may not work, in which case these new models can produce high energy, which can lead to the ugly consequences of large scars on the treated area, such as reddish-brown hypertrophic scars. Some patients who come to our hospital have recently received such treatment at another medical institution and have fallen into such a merger certificate and are sometimes asked to do something about it.

In addition, in the case of double eyelid surgery that does not cut, a very thick synthetic thread is exposed on the conjunctival surface, causing inflammation. I have encountered many cases where the problem was complicated by re-surgery, leaving the thread behind.

In addition, we sometimes see cases where an unlicensed subcutaneous injection is placed on the face, leaving lumps and bumps permanently in the face.

Returning to the description at the beginning, there are always potential complications in medical practice. In English, this is called Pros and Cons, and there is a system that explains to the patient before the procedure and then treats it.

If you are receiving treatment such as aesthetic medicine or plastic surgery at one of the medical institutions and are suffering from some complications, please feel free to contact us as we are also consulting.

Prominent Ear

Standing ears (Prominent Ear: Is the shape of the ears strange?)

For those who think that the shape of their ears is strange by nature, we have a lecture. Among them, the state in which the ears are raised forward is called “Prominent ear” in clinical medicine. Many Japanese people don’t seem to care if their ears are a little raised, but in Europe and the United States, they are often the target of bullying, and they are often treated by surgery at an early age.

Even in Japan, if your ears are highly raised, you are covered by insurance, and in this case, you generally need to be at least 30 ° above your skull. These treatments are handled by plastic surgeons and are delicate operations that require detailed preoperative design and ingenuity in surgical procedures.

Surgery is a one-day operation with local anesthesia, in which the cartilage of the ear is modified to make near-normal creases, and sometimes the entire ear is bent toward the skull. Detailed counseling with a specialist is important, as one fixed method may not work.
