Any plastics/cosmetic surgery RNs around?

  1. Hi everyone,

    I have a couple of questions that I'd like to ask a plastics or cosmetic surgery RN if there are any on the board. I'm considering going to a plastic/cosmetic surgeon for repair of a facial disfigurement, and I have a few questions.

    I know, I know, I need to consult with a surgeon but I have some questions to ask BEFORE that...

    I'm really scared that I might make the problem worse instead of better. Anyway, if there's anyone who would be willing to be a sounding board, I'd really appreciate it.

    Thanks a lot!

    Golly Rebecca, I've seen pics of you, and I have to ask... what the h*ll do you exactly feel is wrong with your face???

    I saw a plastic surgeon once, but it was for work a little lower than the face.....

    Heather:

    I have a pretty considerable facial disfigurement on the right side of my face due to a melanoma wide excision surgery and skin grafting. Its been bothering me more than ever lately (no speculation here as to why THAT might be), and I just wondered if there was something I could do about it surgically.

    Maybe I'll get brave and post a close up pic so you can see. Or maybe not.
