Patient Has Fix A Flat Injected In Ass, Didn’t Do Their Homework..

November 21, 2011

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (CBSMiami.com) – Cement and fix-a-flat aren’t the typical things you’d consider injecting into your body. But that’s exactly what Miami Gardens Police said a fake doctor was doing to at least one victim.

The man, Oneal Ron Morris, 30, allegedly injected a substance consisting of cement, “fix-a-flat,” mineral oil, and “super glue,” into his victim’s buttocks for cosmetic surgery and then sealed the incision with “super glue,” according to Miami Gardens Police.

As a result of the compound, Morris’ victim was hospitalized with what police called a “serious medical condition as a result of the injections.”

Doctor Rainer Sachse  a plastic surgeon in Fort Lauderdale, stated people must do their homework before allowing someone to inject a substance into their bodies.

“I understand people are trying to find a shortcut,” Dr. Sachse said. “Sometimes it might work but more often than not it probably doesn’t work and then it’s sad something like this can happen.”

Dr. Sachse stated there are other ways to make the body a prettier place..

Eye Lid Procedure Gone Bad, Patient Can Not Close Her Eyes, Duct Tape To The Rescue

March 30, 2011

A jury has started deliberating the case of a woman who says she can’t close her eyes, even when she sleeps. She’s blaming an eyelid procedure gone badly, reports CBS 2’s Christine Sloan.

Marilyn Leisz said she went to a Bergen County plastic surgeon to correct bumps on her eyelids from a cosmetic procedure performed by another doctor — and now she can’t fully close her eyes.

“I can close my eyes like this, but to blink I really have to really squeeze my eyes to … fully close my eyes,” Leisz said.

The married mother of two from Bloomingdale was in court Tuesday suing Dr. Paul Parker for negligence. During a break, Sloan asked Dr. Parker and his attorney for comment. They both declined.

But in court, his attorney told the jury Leisz was warned of the risks and that she never complained after the 2005 eyelid surgery called a blepharoplasty.

“This patient was given information about those risks,” the attorney said. Leisz disagrees. Her attorney played the opinion of another doctor who said she wasn’t a good candidate for this surgery because she had had too many other procedures.

“He should have been honest with me and told me I was not a candidate and suggested other options for me,” Leisz said.

Dr Parker said there was one other option they should have pursued.

 

Ask The Eye, Remember No Nip Never Never Never Ever If You Can’t Remember Put It On Tape

January 27, 2011

Dear Eye View,
I find myself at the age of 31 wondering what proper nipple etiquette is. I recently read an article that led me to realize that some people are offended by the sight of the outline of a woman’s nipples showing through her clothing. I own a variety of bras, some padded and some not. I know that if I wear an unpadded bra and it gets cold, the outline of my nipples will show through my top. My mother never mentioned anything about this when I was growing up (she didn’t object when I sometimes went braless as a teen), and the only person who has ever said anything about my nipples is my boyfriend. I am inclined to think that it is not improper, and I have never been offended by the sight of nipples. Would you please educate me?

Nipply

Dear Nipply

I understand your concern. To educate myself I turned to the women of  Womens Health, who enlightened me on their bra-washing schedules the last time bra etiquette came up. This time the responses ranged from, “No nip. Never” to “What can you do—sometimes nipples are visible” to “A little nipple is fine. Women have breasts, people should get over it” to “It feels rude and intrusive, demanding everyone look” to “Some nippage is inevitable, though I wouldn’t expect men to behave like adults and divert their gaze.” So I will anoint myself the nipple arbiter and say, particularly at the office, keep your nipples under wraps. A little tape never hurts.. Hope this helps.

Ask The Eye, For Kids Hitting The Evil 3’s, Go With 3M

January 9, 2011

Dear Eye View I love my mom, and she is a true mentor to me. She is smart, intelligent, caring (almost to a fault), and doesn’t overstep boundaries. She has been helping with child care lately, and I find myself butting heads with her on my older toddler, who just turned 3. He is, of course, going through the “evil threes”—tantrums, defiance, etc. Being very strong-willed (like my husband), I take a “pick your battles” approach with him (with a strong dose of patience) when it comes to sitting at the table for dinner, getting dressed, etc. The problem is, his verbal communication is very advanced for his age. My mom speaks to him like an older child (which is fine), but she tries to use rational arguments and expects him to comply with her immediately when she requests that he do something (he often needs some time and a few gentle reminders to transition between activities, which he will then do willingly). The result is a lot of tantrums and comments from my mom about how he’s used to getting his way, he’s spoiled, etc. I tried to remind her that he’s only 3, but she’s helping out again this week and I know we have more battles up ahead. I am grateful for her help so I try to keep my mouth shut, but my husband is also very bothered (as well as my son), and it’s putting me in an uncomfortable position. How do I talk to her without telling her how to parent my kids or making us seem ungrateful for her help? How do I get her to realize that it’s not my child who is “spoiled” or “bratty,” but her techniques in dealing with a defiant 3-year-old that might need some fine-tuning? Help

Dear Help

I understand your concern. I often get letters like this from women blaming the husband, but will discuss that in a different letter. There are many child rearing books and tapes on the market. The child rearing tape I mainly recommend is duct. Hope this helps.

Feds Don’t Like Sleep Positioners, Duct Tape To The Rescue

September 30, 2010

Those soft fabric sleep positioners that parents put in the crib to keep babies safely sleeping on their backs could be dangerous, even deadly, for little ones, the government warned Wednesday.

Citing 12 deaths, the Food and Drug Administration and the Consumer Product Safety Commission said the positioners are not safe and that parents, caregivers and others should not use them at all because of a suffocation risk.

The babies, ranging in age from 1 to 4 months, died when they suffocated in the positioner or became trapped between the positioner and the side of a crib and then suffocated. The deaths spanned the last 13 years.

Most of the babies suffocated after rolling from a side to stomach position, the agencies said in their joint announcement.

“In most instances, these products provide no real benefit and the risk of harm when they are used is significantly greater,” cautioned FDA deputy commissioner Joshua Sharfstein, during a teleconference with reporters.

Duct tape works in any situation..

 

 

Ask The Eye,Bringing Up Baby Southern Style

May 30, 2010

Dear Eye View,
My wife and I are expecting our first child in October. She plans to continue working after we have our baby, and she is being bombarded by people who make her feel as if she’s an unfit mother for wanting to work outside the home. For example, a lady at our church told her she would NEVER let anyone else raise her baby. Others just ask how she could possibly leave her baby with someone else. Most of these comments come from people she does not even know! My advice to her was to look at them and respond that she would NEVER make anyone feel uncomfortable that she hardly knew. How would you recommend that she deal with this?
