You never know when an accident will happen. When it does, it’s crucial to have the right medical team that can address the physical and psychological effects. This is because many people that end up with deformities suffer from depression, so both aspects of their injuries must be addressed.
The field of plastic surgery helps people who have been in accidents. It’s one of the reasons we love our job so much. When people come into our office for a free consultation, we are honored to correct their deformities.
We know that by physically repairing them, their quality of life will improve, thus bringing back the happiness they once experienced before their appearance changed.
A Devastating Story About an Exploding e-Cigarette
In the news recently was an article about a woman in the UK. Kirby Sheen was testing the battery on her e-cigarette, and all of a sudden, it blew up.
The explosion caused her eyelid to split. She says she knew something happened, but all she remembers is seeing a puff of smoke and hearing a bang. The next thing she knew, there was blood running down her face.
Sheen almost lost her eye when the battery exploded. Luckily, her eyelid took the brunt of the heat from the explosion.
Unfortunately, her eye had to be operated on to repair the damage. The plastic surgeon was able to make her eye look as if nothing ever happened.
The good news is that this accident hasn’t stopped her; she is planning on getting married next year. With the corrections that plastic surgery has provided her, she won’t feel self-conscious about her injuries when she walks down the aisle. This is a great relief for her, as you can probably imagine.
What to Do When You Suffer an Accident
Accidents are scary circumstances. You should seek medical attention immediately, no matter how minor you assume the injury is. Once you are taken care of medically, you may need a consultation with a plastic or cosmetic surgeon to discuss how you can have the deformities repaired.
If you continue to suffer from flashbacks from the moment the injury occurred or depression from the after effects, please seek psychological counseling to heal your mind.
