Want to get a special someone a gift that goes the extra mile? Perhaps you should consider giving that person the gift of the plastic surgery procedure they have always wanted. Consider a recent article for Haute Living titled “Is This Holiday Season’s ‘It’ Gift Cosmetic Surgery?”
Nikki Tucker of Haute Living writes, “It does not feel like that long ago when my father surprised my brother and I with an entire home gym. In addition to the assortment of cables, benches and ab machines, I found free weights and a treadmill fit for an Equinox gym in NYC. I was in middle school (few decades ago) at the time and a very competitive soccer as well as tennis player. I was keen on playing either sport at a Division I university, but my father pointed out the extensive need to train in the off-season. I was excited to have the home gym, but then wondered what my father was trying to tell my brother and I: you both need to work out more or you both are weak? What seemed like bonding while pumping iron with my old man led to me to worry that I was not able to perform as many pull-ups as him despite wiping him off the tennis court as a pre-teen. Was this analogous to the ‘Stepford Husband’ who buys his wife a new toaster and vacuum for Christmas? What was he trying to say? Fast-forward many years. I sit in my consultation room on Fifth Avenue in New York City. I am having a thoughtful discussion with my patient about her desire to undergo a facelift. She mentions to me she wants a natural look and does not want to look ‘like I just got out of a wind tunnel.’ I chuckle with her and her husband who is there for support. An interesting shift occurs in the conversation. ‘What about you, honey? Anything you want to show the doctor?’ she says to her quietly observant husband. ‘I didn’t know there was anything wrong with me. Should I be showing him something?’ he asks puzzled. Their exchange culminated in him changing into a gown and showing me his ‘belly and love handles.’”
If you are considering a procedure like rhinoplasty, you need a surgeon you can trust. Rex E. Moulton-Barrett, M.D. is internationally known and acknowledged. He is board certified with The American Board of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and The American Board of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery.
With Dr. Moulton-Barrett, rhinoplasty is usually done as an outpatient procedure, meaning there is no overnight stay. When you come in, you’ll get general or local anesthesia. If you get general anesthesia, you’ll sleep through the operation. Otherwise, if you go with local anesthesia, you will be sedated and your nose will be numbed so you are relaxed and unable to feel the pain. When Dr. Moulton-Barrett is conducting the operation, he makes cuts within the nostrils. When he has more difficult cases, he may also make cuts across the base of the nose. Then Dr. Moulton-Barrett reshapes the inner bone and cartilage to produce a more pleasing appearance. By making these incisions, it allows access to the nasal framework so that the rhinoplasty can be performed to add, remove, adjust or reshape existing nose tissue.
