Rates of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and funny phrases and expressions that last post of this study. Writing is more “fun” and “enjoyment” than any other reason. Doctors have their own language. Not only in terms of physics may not be familiar, but doctors use expressions to convey the concept. These words are sometimes funny or even strange. Checking here for your entertainment. Doctors may use words or terms that are hard to understand. This expression is intended to put the concepts in easy to understand words. I hope you laugh and have fun!
1: “Spitting Stitches”
The surgical incisions are stitched by a plastic surgeon or cosmetic surgeon with advanced skills and techniques. This includes the manipulation of soft tissues, meticulous control of bleeding, and delicious smooth seams. Many techniques have been buried or point of “internal” to absorb or dissolve during suture. It would allow the incision without sutures can see and minimize scarring. Hopefully the scars heal well and fade. Maturation of the scar or scars called fade with time.
During the healing process, we can see that the incision “spit” or something out of the incision. It is very common. Most stitches and is positioned on the skin is absorbed. As the skin heals and turns, stitch working its way to the surface. You can go out and be called “spitting stitches.” It does not hurt at all! However, it can be intimidating for some people. The score does not affect the Aesthetic outcome, so there’s no reason to worry.
Another aspect of the incision healing incision can cause spitting. During the repair of the skin, sweat glands, sebaceous glands and the hair can be locked. It can cause mild infections. Usually it is just acne. So do not worry. Usually you notice redness, swelling, and mild pain in the small part of the incision. Some pus was not uncommon. Treatment is usually only Neosporin and a cleaning tape. It does not affect the cosmetic result.
2: “Are you eating, drinking, urinating and Pooping is?”
After surgery, the patient receives instruction in special and intensive. One question that arises is: “? What should I know to be wrong after the surgery “The usual response is to seek a high fever (over 101.5 degrees), excessive bleeding or excessive pain. My patient was given my personal cell phone for any questions or concerns. However, if we examine the basic body functions well and see it, then we can have a better assurance that all is well. The main functions of the body are things like eating, drinking, urinating (peeing), and defecation (pooping). If we do all these things, we are often able to know that we are still healing after surgery.
It is not a guarantee that everything will be perfect. This means that the only thing that seemed to go well, if you can do it all. This is a great signing for forward recovery.
3: “Being a turtle” and “Slow and steady wins the race!”
All those who have any kind of cosmetic surgery or surgery should be given enough time to heal and recover. We have very busy lives, and many patients want surgery and recovered quickly. This is not the case!
If we do not take time to heal, we can cause problems, increase the risk, and delay healing. “Sea Turtle” is an expression that refers to the legendary and Haire (rabbit) turtle. In this story, the rabbit rushed forward and then because he was sleeping, he lost the race. The term refers to the idea that we should go slowly after surgery and need time to heal. If not, you could be causing part of the problem and “lose” the race. “Race” after surgery recovery as quickly as possible without any problems.
The “Slow and steady wins the race” phrase refers to the same concept. Follow the instructions provided. Do it slowly and properly heal. Be smart. Do not try to walk fast or lose and rabbits.
4: “Wagon CIRCLE”
It is an expression used by the surgeon. To my knowledge, used mainly as a plastic surgeon. I learned from Dr. Thomas Whetzel, a professor at the University of California. It refers to the surgical dissection. When dissecting the anatomy, avoid working in “one spot” and instead of studying for the safest place to expose the anatomy.
If you try to isolate some guts or operation of ships, a dissection can take place in the pit with limited visibility. If you cut up, down, and around this area (circle the wagon), you will be safer to identify the surgical anatomy. Surrounding the train is the best way to operate safely for surgery.
5: “Exposure, Exposure, Exposure!”
Can be considered as a phrase realitor about location, location, location. In operation, the anatomy of the right exposure is critical in the search for security and analyze the roots and blood vessels. Surgeons have proper exposure, then he can see what the anatomy to protect. This leads to a lower likelihood of damage to the environment anatomy.
The concept of openness as a “near rankings”. Expression of two related forms of surgeon should play or learn. The surgeon should have all of the major blood vessels and vessel safety is achieved. This will reduce the possibility of damage to the surrounding anatomy.
6: “Radiance Eye”
Clinical experience may be more important than the number of laboratory and X-ray When recovering from surgery, it is important to be able to determine whether patients recover. Recovery has its ups and downs, but the trend should be a gradual improvement and healing. They often want to know if they are doing well and how to know if the patient is not. Doctors often can not see the patient and determine if something is good or not. A prominent surgeon, Dr. William F. Blaisdell, calling it “a twinkle in his eye.” When patients do better or healing is, you can see from the experience. Better than the level of blood or X-rays, often only “see” a patient could help doctors said everything was fine.
It comes from years of experience in treating patients. That’s why I tell my patients is important to continue to follow through on their promises. Noting that, you can get a better handle on their medications and what to do to restore the best. If you have any questions or problems, I tell my patients, “Come to the office.” Looking at him, I can tell if they have a twinkle in his eye. It also helps to see what is really going on and if there is a problem or not.
Dr. Blaisdell is one of my mentors at the University of California. It is a specialized surgical and professor and chairman of the department of surgery pioneer. Found an extra anatomic bypass and surgical ICU first started in California. He also started the first trauma center in California. He was a great influence on the practice and ethics of hard work.
7: “Trace of Time”
Sometimes during the healing process, doctors can not say for sure if there is a problem or not. Infection may take a few minutes to realize that time is understood. Treatment may be delayed to see if it is a problem or not. Wait Peroiod called “trace time.” A tincture is a word often based on chemicals that contain alcohol or drugs. It can also mean small doses, trace or nuance. A feeling of having time means that we provide a small amount of time to see whether or not the improvements. Usually, at this time, medicinal becomes apparent or not. During the wait, the doctor can better evaluate what is best. Often there is little harm in waiting. Usually it is a wise thing to do to minimize the risk of unnecessary treatment.
