Trigger warning ⚠️ It’s not that mirror that lies to us but our mind (conscious and sub-conscious). Self mutilating, suicidal tendencies or thoughts, unhealthy relationship with food (bulimia, anorexia, gluttony) are all forms of a lack of self love or repeated toxic cycle. I too have experienced variations of all the above. Thinking why do I have freckles and birth marks...it’s not “beautiful.” Getting a razor and shaving it off my flesh, one by one. Maybe if I get my lips done bigger, tummy tuck, breast augmentation, buttock injections...I would be perfect. Truth is we are all perfect in this body of ours. We were put into this body to experience this life at this moment. Don’t believe the hype behind society’s superficial propaganda! It’s all part of the elite plan, to program your self perception into thinking you’re not good “enough.” The last thing You should ever want to be is a step-ford, cookie cut-out, robot, GMO created vessel (looking like a clone spit out from a mass produced money greedy agenda.) To society’s standards: here’s a big flip of the middle 🦅 in the air to ya’ll. I am me, Organically grown...I am beautiful. I WILL NOT CONFORM. #selflove#plasticsurgery#surface#beauty#standards#thoughts#rp#loveis#heart#soul#spirit#justbe#addiction#toxic#cycles#thirdeye#video#watch#evolve#shadowwork#reflection#living#life#bodypositivity#socialmedia#insta#facebook#snapchats
This 36 year old woman was diagnosed with BCC (basal cell carcinoma) of her right medial upper eyelid. She had this lesion for years, but recently noticed that it began to bleed. The dermatologist biopsied the lesion and confirmed the diagnosis of BCC. Her dermatologist performed Mohs surgery to confirm complete removal of all cancer cells. Due to the location and size of the remaining wound, she was referred to my office for closure of the remaining defect. These photos show the patient when she presented to my office after Mohs excision and then just 3 months following her repair. Reconstruction of her eyelid was able to be performed in my office under local anesthetic. Sutures were removed 1 week post op. She is currently applying New Gel scar ointment (Vit E and Silicone) to the area 2x/day. For those of you unfamiliar with Mohs surgery, it is performed by a dermatologist specifically trained in this technique. The Mohs surgeon analyzes the specimen while the patient waits. Additional tissue is removed if there is evidence of remaining cells. The goal is to precisely remove cancerous tissue while preserving the surrounding healthy tissue. The cure rate for BCC (the most common type of skin cancer) using this technique is as high as 99.8%. This technique is typically reserved for treatment of skin cancers in anatomically sensitive areas, where tissue preservation is critical (i.e. face, genitals, hands, and feet).
