We do agree that looking ten years younger is not necessarily the way to go as reported in the article. A good surgeon can achieve this and give the patient a very natural look, but we do feel that a realistic expectation of what can be achieved is the better approach.
In the latest show, Mr Vijh uses a relatively new technique to fix a patients face. Fat transfer uses the patients own body fat to “pad out” or fill areas of the body, often the face. The massive advantage of this procedure is that there is no chance of rejection by the body due to the use of its own fat. Mr Vijh was one of the pioneering surgeons in this country for this procedure. “It’s a technique I’ve used many times now over the past few years”, explains Mr Vijh, “It’s also got the added advantage of a bit of positive body shaping to the areas where the fat is taken from!”.
We noted this story with real concern. For any patient to have their life ruined by surgery is intensely sad. The field of cosmetic surgery is intended to do good for people…for their health and for their well being. Several points come out of cases like this.
