I'm a medium dark person and I wanted to become fair and I'm 18 yrs old. Can I undergo any surgery to change my skin colour? Is it safe?

I'm a medium dark person and I wanted to become fair and I'm 18 yrs old. Can I undergo any surgery to change my skin colour? Is it safe?

No: I saw a video on YouTube about a Caucasian woman just coming out of dental anesthesia filmed by her husband. As she became conscious, she found that she was not Nicki Minaj and was devastated. You may buy skin lightening products, but none of them work. None. I in West Africa for two years and came to wish that I did not have this white sallow skin compared to the rich deep black of the Ewe.

How is it possible for an opiate naive person to have no head change while taking narcotic medications would this affect anesthesia during surgery?

How is it possible for an opiate naive person to have no head change while taking narcotic medications would this affect anesthesia during surgery?

Opioid high: The opioid" high" is achieved at a smaller dose in the opioid "virgin" patients than in the chronic user. In general anesthesia we have to limit the amount of opioids given to the patients for pain (we treat the pain under ga too) because when they wake up they have to breathe by themselves. In addicts, the necessary dose can be 10 times or more to be efficient (due to receptor up regulation).

Yes and no: 2 options at this point depending on your exam and ct sinus scan results. One is in-office balloon sinuplasty and the other is minimally invasive image-guided endoscopic sinus surgery in my hands. For more information on these procedures visit www. Socalsinus. Com.

It may: Race isn't a factor. If you've turned a bit yellow, your physician may want to work you up for a delayed hemolytic transfusion reaction. And of course if your anemia is corrected you look better. Best wishes.

What causes my skin color change?

Depends: If you have had a previous burn or sun damage you may get skin color change. Most of the time the melanin in your skin is reacting to what injured it (radiation, sun, fire, etc). If your skin is blue it usually means you are not getting enough oxygen, if it is red you are possibly flush either due to heat or dehydration. Sun damage can also cause loss of color in spots on the limbs.
