Can cosmetic surgery help people quit smoking?

Five years after the cosmetic surgery 47 patients responded to a follow-up survey

Five years after the cosmetic surgery 47 patients responded to a follow-up survey

About 26 percent of top Instagram posts about plastic surgery come from physicians in other specialties, such as gynecologists, dermatologists, general surgeons, family doctors, ear-nose-throat doctors, and - in one case - an ER doc, researchers found.

To ensure safety and quality, patients should inquire as to whether the surgeon has the required training and credentials according to the American Board of Plastic Surgery or the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, bona fide plastic surgeons told CNN. Another 5.5 per cent were non-physicians, including dentists, spas with no associated physician and a hair salon.

"Our results show an association between cosmetic surgery and smoking cessation at long-term follow-up", said lead study author Aaron C. Van Slyke from the University of British Columbia, Vancouver.

Like most plastic surgeons, Dr. Van Slyke and colleagues required patients to refrain from smoking for at least two weeks before elective procedures. She lost her license in the Georgia state, although the prosecutors chose to drop the charges.

The problem is that medicine is largely unregulated, and someone with a medical license is considered under the law capable of performing just about any procedure, Schierle said.

"It's kind of like the wild west out there".

For the study, published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal, the team examined a total of 1,789,270 posts which utilized 21 plastic surgery-related hashtags on Instagram.

The complication rate after cosmetic surgery was higher in patients who continued to smoke: 24 per cent versus 14 per cent.

Basically, do your research-and always, always go with a board-certified plastic surgeon. They looked for hashtags like #PlasticSurgery, #FaceLift, #BreastImplant, #BoobJob, #LipoSuction and #BrazilianButtLift. However, board-certified plastic surgeons were almost twice as likely to use Instagram to post educational content rather than self-promotion.

Last year, according to Dr. Schierle, a Georgia doctor, who was not specialized to perform plastic surgery, attended at her County cosmetic surgery clinic a botched liposuction.
