Did bruce jenner return to same md for repair of plastic surgery? Should you if unhappy?

Did bruce jenner return to same md for repair of plastic surgery? Should you if unhappy?

Short answer is yes.: The long answer is that most surgeons want to make their patients happy with the results of any surgical intervention. Sometimes less than optimal results can happen that are out of the surgeon's control like infection, hypertrophic scarring, capsular contracture with breast augmentations, etc... I have found that most surgeons truly want to achieve the best results possible and are willing to. ...Read more

I had laparoscopy surgery 4days ago and my belly button have yellow color and bruce. And have thick dry blood on surgical site. It is normal?

Sound OK: Following surgery, a small amount of bleeding is normal and it will produce a bruise as well as a scab. The yellowish color I'm not sure of... But, it might be what is left of the skin prep used. If you have increased pain, fevers, redness or drainage- see your doc. Otherwise seems within normal. ...Read more

Is it bad when the veins in your legs pop living bad brucing and pain im 29 years old I have suffered of high blood presure for 4 years now, lateley I have been getting this uncontrolable headaches can this be related?

Very: Very high blood pressure can definitely cause headaches. That's not the only cause, of course, but if your headaches are in fact caused by your high blood pressure, then it means you may be at risk of complications like bleeding.

It's unusual for a 29 year-old to have high blood pressure, so when it happens you have to think of unusual causes. In some cases, high blood pressure in a young patient is due to a condition called fibromuscular dysplasia, which is a benign abnormality in the arteries that supply the kidneys. It is relatively easy to fix with a balloon, so it is worth checking for. This can be done with ultrasound or ct angiography.

Whether or not your headaches are caused by your hypertension, and whether or not you have fibromuscular dysplasia, it's important to get it under control. Untreated high blood pressure can cause a host of long-term complications. ...Read more
