I just had to blog (still new at this) about the show today. It was one of those times when I got to see my patient for the first time since surgery, live, right in front of our studio audience. It is both exciting and terrifying. It's like Forrest Gump said, "Life is like a box of chocolates ..."
A few things can go wrong after we apply the bandage and before we see our patient a few days later. She could be too active, disobey post-operative instructions or suffer excessive bruising, due to taking aspirin or other medications. Fortunately, Caroline could not have looked better!
In plastic surgery, we give it our best effort every time we operate. We constantly consider the question, "How can we be even better?" I personally discuss things with colleagues every day. This jaw-line makeover that we call the Suck-Tuck, is a good example of this. That's why Caroline looked so great ... and after only three days!
