Plastic Surgery Graduation Presents: Nose jobs and Breast Implants Top Lists

posted on February 28, 2015 by

Many 2012 high school graduates across the country are receiving special graduation gifts: plastic surgewoman-big-nosery.

The Daily reported that the number of breast implants among teenagers has soared by 200 percent over the past 10 years. Plastic Surgeons performed over 23,000 breast implants last year, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

In 2011, the most requested plastic surgery procedure was rhinoplasty — a nosejob — with 33,000 surgeries. Breast surgery came second, and interestingly about 14,400 of the cases were boys with enlarged breasts, known as gynecomastia.

Dr. Simoni has seen the number of rhinoplasties quadruples around graduation time.

To recommend rhinoplasty to a teen, Dr Simoni looks at the teen’s physical and emotional maturity, checking the credentials of a surgery.  It is important for a teen to reach a brain maturity to understand the risks of a procedure and the expected recovery time.

A Dentist Did My Nosejob

posted on February 28, 2015 by

SS had decided to undergo a rhinoplasty. He researched doctors and found one he thought was well-qualified; his TV apearance touted him as board-certified and a top plastic surgeon in Los Angeles.

SS met with him for a consultation and underwent the procedure in his office several weeks later. Few months after the surgery he discovered a shocking sight:

His nose was crooked and and major dents all over it.

When getting a second oponion for his revision, Dr Simoni revealed to him that his previous surgeon was not board certified.  He would need extensive surgery to correct it.

As if this weren’t bad enough, he also informed him that his doctor is no longer licensed to practice medicine.

His “plastic surgeon” was actually a dentist.

Stories like SS’s are becoming more and more common across America. There are increasing number of doctors performing cosmetic procedures without the proper training or credentials.

In Los Angeles, I’ve been horrified by dozens of botched jobs, Dr Simoni explains. One of my patients, a beautiful 23-year-old model, was left with a upturned and scooped nose done by a gynecologyst.

Why does this happen?

Although state medical boards regulate who can obtain a license to practice medicine, they don’t restrict doctors from performing procedures outside of their training or specialty. Once they are licensed, there is no law against doctors performing any medical procedure they want to; as long as the patient consents to it.

As a board-certified facial plastic surgeon, I can legally perform a brain surgery for which I am completely unqualified. This lack of regulation has allowed an increasingly large number of doctors of all types — including gynecologists, general surgeons and even emergency medicine physicians — to perform tummy tucks, liposuction, facelifts and breast enhancement.

So why do so many doctors reject their chosen specialty and remake themselves as plastic surgeons?

One word: money.

Declining physician reimbursement has resulted in more physicians looking for ways to enhance their income. Plastic surgery is one of the only fields of medicine that is shielded from insurance companies.

So an increasing number of doctors are closing their traditional medical practices and opening cosmetic surgery centers. These physicians learn the basics of plastic surgery through weekend courses, shadowing other doctors, and even online webinars. This influx of poorly trained cosmetic surgeons has caused SS’s story to become just one of many.

If you are considering having plastic surgery, I implore you; do your homework. Find a facial or general plastic surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery or the American Board of Facial Plastic Surgery.

For facial and nose plastic surgery, a doctor certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery is considered an equivalent in all states.

I consider it a privilege that my patients put their lives and faces in my hands. All surgeons should.

Nose jobs known as Rhinoplasties are becoming popular graduation gift for high school graduates. Rhinoplasty is the most common surgery in teens, It is becoming more and more trendy for parents to gift their teens with nose jobs rather than vacation trips, cars and expensive jewelry. Since college is a stepping stone for every student it is extremely important for them to start school with confidence and great first impressions.

Dr. Payman Simoni , a Beverly Hills rhinopasty specialist,  noticed a number of growing teen Rhinoplasties in July especially teens aged eighteen and up.  As exciting as a getting a new nose is,  “it is extremely important to do extensive research on your surgeon before proceeding with your rinoplasty” explains Dr. Simoni.  Nose is the most prominent facial feature and it plays a major role in determining how we look, Rhinoplasties are highly satisfying if done correctly”.

You may well believe that Rhinoplasty is nothing but taking down a bump or making a nose smaller, but this is an extremely intricate and complex procedure of all plastic surgery procedures. It is a combination of science and beauty. It’s very easy for a surgeon to put a chisel on the nose and rasp away until they think they’ve got it right but this shows a lack of understanding of how the nose works and how the soft tissues reacts to surgery. That is why Dr Simoni always recommend seeing a rhinoplasty specialist.  Dr. Simoni recommends spending ample time with patients trying to understand their expectations. It is through to achieve their dream nose to help boost your teens self-esteem and confidence.

Dr. Simoni uses a 3D computer generated image which shows before and after pictures to help you and your teen understand what their nose will look like after the surgery. Dr. Simoni can help your teen start off the most memorable milestone of their life with a perfect nose for the beautiful years ahead.
