Rinoplastia: bad choice.
Uma matéria do New York Times trata de reparos que cirurgias plásticas demandam, principalmente a infame rinoplastia.
Como meu interesse sempre é pichar a rinoplastia, reproduzirei trechos – preferencialmente tirados do contexto – que me favorecem (com grifos meus):
Rhinoplasty, for instance, is tricky because surgeons can’t control healing or how good the building materials are. Cartilage can be too thick or too flimsy; skin draped over a newly fashioned nose structure might not shrink to the shape the surgeon wants.
“It’s a difficult operation with a lot of variables,” said Dr. James C. Grotting, (. . .) “So even in the best of hands, people who only do rhinoplasty,” he said, there is still “a revision rate of up to 20 percent.”
He pinpointed four reasons for dissatisfaction: breathing is worse, which can happen if a doctor doesn’t compensate for aesthetic changes; postoperative deformity that patients don’t like (perhaps removing a bump leaves the patient’s nose crooked); the patient never reached the original goal; and last, the patient got the requested change but now finds it unacceptable. “After, they feel they lost a familial or ethnic characteristic, and ask, ‘Can you do something to put my nose back to what it was?’ ” he said.
“Patients will say, ‘I just want a little taken off.’ How much is a little?” Other doctors sweet-talk patients into thinking the perfect nose or face-lift is within reach, leading to discontent. “People are marketing things they cannot achieve,” Dr. Gunter said.
The skin of the lower nose “won’t necessarily shrink to the shape the surgeon wants,” Dr. Constantian said.
“Breathing worse after a rhinoplasty is so common that I’ve heard surgeons say on panels at meetings that they expect it to happen, they tell their patients it will happen,” Dr. Constantian said.
