Of the one million motor vehicles on the roads in Hawaii, there are nearly 10,000 traffic accidents yearly. These accidents range from mild to severe in their effects, but they can result in many misfortunes, from bumps and bruises, cuts, burns and scars, to serious disfigurement. In many cases, these injuries can leave people not looking the same with deformed features or embarrassing scars. Scars and deformities in the past would have to just be accepted and adapted to but nowadays there are so many options. People with these injuries now have options in the form of amazing, revolutionary surgeries to restore body function and improve self-confidence.


Surgery is often a taboo topic, especially when it comes to plastic surgeries. But first, a distinction should be made between ‘plastic’ surgery and ‘cosmetic surgery.’ The two terms are often used interchangeably, but they are actually quite distinct in their purpose and goal. When something is called a cosmetic surgery, it means that it’s mission is to enhance appearance, to an already functioning body part. Plastic surgeons like Dr. Randy Wong, MD have the goal of reinstating normal function to body parts or returning the appearance to normal. Surgeries like nose jobs, Botox, lip injections, face lifts, and breast augmentation Honolulu, could quickly be labeled as ‘cosmetic’ because that is often how they are portrayed in the media. But they can also be necessary, life changing reconstructive plastic surgeries. Say, for example, someone’s nose is seriously injured and their nasal passage is compromised. A nose job could restore that person’s nasal passage allowing them to breathe properly. Honolulu breast implants may be thought of cosmetic, but what if a car accidents chest is so badly injured that their breast tissue is destroyed? The implants would be monumental in restoring that person’s happiness and self-confidence and in the end greatly improving their quality of life.


Mommy makeover Honolulu is a part of this massive field. Surgeries are saving lives and changing lives. Restoring appearance after an injury such as a car accident can be just as important as reinstating the body part function. It improves your self-esteem, confidence, and overall mental well being, allowing you to return to work and be just as productive and happy as you were before the accident with the full potential to succeed in whatever your heart has desired. No one should be afraid to pursue the life they’ve dreamed, because of the way they look after an unfortunate accident.

The origins of my desire to become a doctor are quite comical when you stop to think about. When I was a child I had to get a shot and due to the amount of squirming and shaking I did to avoid the needle, it broke off in my skin.
