Skin Blemishes and Laser Treatment- How much do you know about it

For a couple of months now, I’ve been receiving emails and DMs on our Instagram page from women everywhere complaining bitterly about various skin challenges ranging from skin tags, excess hair on the body, tribal marks, scars, etc. I’ve also received emails from those who are desperate to get rid of a tattoo they had when they were much younger.

After consultation with quite a number of them, I’ve concluded that skin blemishes, acne, wrinkles, scars, and other skin blemishes are a major source of concern for most people especially women.  Although these conditions may not be a major medical issue, they are, however, a source of insecurities, frustration, and embarrassment to a whole lot of women.

Skin blemishes come in different forms and are caused by several factors. Which include genetics, nutrition, exposure to sun rays, the side effect of certain drugs, environmental factors, age, childbearing, hormones, etc. Most of these can be treated with the use of Laser treatment.

If you were one of these women, which of these letters would you write to me:

Dear Dr. Laser,
My problem is stretch marks. I have it all over my body. I can hardly wear a short sleeved top. It has become so very embarrassing.

Incident Report on our patient (Ms Eno)

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the death of our beloved patient (Ms Eno) who died at an ICU centre after her successful surgery at our facility.

Ms Eno had a successful surgery at our facility.

After her successful surgery, she was anaemic following intra-operative blood loss. In line with standard practice, she was transfused with dully cross-matched blood.There was a blood transfusion reaction (TRALI).

After that, we stabilised her, and we immediately transferred her to an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) outside our facility for continuous management and care.

However, we were surprised when the ICU informed us of her death.

Gynecomastia (Man Boobs)

I ran into an old secondary school mate the other day and we decided to catch up on old times. We laughed over a lot of things, over stupid pranks we played on each other as youngsters, over fights we had, and over all manna of mischievous activities. We also recalled how he was often teased on end over his “man boobs”.
Oh boy, we gave the guy some serious hard time and would often taunt him with girlish names. He joined us in JSS 3 and as a new student, he would often erupt into violent tempers and attempt to fight everyone but as he realised that students were not likely to relent, as long as he was a student in that school, he decided to stop fighting us, get used to it and even joined us in making fun of himself.

Rejuvenate your Sexuality

A letter dropped into my email 2 weeks ago. The email was from a lady who had some health challenges that she felt too embarrassed discussing with anyone. So she got hold of my email address so that she could send me an email where she could freely express herself.

After reading her email, I replied her mail assuring her that there was nothing to be ashamed off. Besides, her condition was common in some women especially those who had undergone childbirth multiple times. I further invited her for consultation in my office.

After consultation, she felt so relieved within herself that she permitted me to share her letter in my next diary entry.

The Letter…
Good Morning Doctor,

Dr Laser’s Diary Brazilian Butt Lift- Enhancing a Woman’s Sexuality.

As a plastic surgeon, I have met, conversed and even counselled countless number of women over the years and I have come to the conclusion that a woman’s joy and fulfilment is tantamount to the perception she has about herself and frankly speaking, physical beauty plays a major role in defining this perception.

For this reason, my work as a body sculptor has brought me great satisfaction. I get satisfaction and joy from the reaction on the faces of my patients when they see their new bodies, from every letter they write me, from their testimonials, from stories of marriages been fixed, and ultimately from all the women we have helped achieve body goals.

Caring for your body after a Breast Surgery

We seldom have patients complain of complications after a successful breast surgery. Hence, When I received a call from a patient two days ago that she was having issues with her breasts after a breast lift surgery was done 2 weeks ago, I pointedly asked if she had adhered to all the instructions that was given to her which she answered in the affirmative.

We invited her over to the office so we could examine her and upon examination, we discovered that not only had she flaunted all our rules, she had taken off the surgical bra made to protect her breasts and speed up recovery.She had also involved herself in activity that had her putting pressure on the breasts.

Consultation with the Lady at the Airport- What you should know about breast lift

Consultation with the Lady at the airport –  What you should know about Breast lift

The other day as I sat in one of the Airport restaurants, flipping through a magazine while I waited for my flight to Abuja, I noticed a lady sitting adjacent to me flipping through her phone and stealing glances at me.

After few minutes, she looked up from her phone and blurted out

“Dr Laser?” before I could reply, she went on to say…” of Grandville…? The plastic surgeon?”

Oh boy, I knew there was no escaping on this one. I had no choice but to answer in the affirmative


“oh my God! Oh my God! I’m finally meeting with you, I follow you on Instagram” while she dramatized I silently hoped she would simply just say hi and go her merry way leaving me to enjoy my peace and quiet. Well that did not happen as I watched her change her seat to sit right next to me. Read more “Consultation with the Lady at the Airport- What you should know about breast lift”

Liposuction or Tummy Tuck- Which suits you best?

A patient walked into my office the other day requesting for a tummy tuck. Upon examination, i discovered that what she really needed was a liposuction.  In this line of work, i get to meet alot of people who desire a flatter tummy and fit figure but are unable to tell one procedure separate from the other. People tend to confuse Liposuction from a Tummy tuck and this lady happens to be one of the many patients i’ve had to school.

In the simpliest way that i could, i educated her that a Liposuction consist of removing the deposits of fat located in between the skin and the abdominal muscles, through some tiny incisions made in the skin.

Liposuction can be used to treat areas of excesses fat on the abdomen and back, arms, thigh, breast, neck,calves, saddle bags etc. Hence, the procedure is suitable for people who have firm elastic skin with pockets of fat in certain areas.

Abdominoplasty which is popularly known as Tummy tuck is suitable for patients with loose abdominal skin or muscles. Loose skin can occur after childbirth or when there has been a massive weight loss.

In Tummy tuck procedure, a long incision is made in the lower abdomen, just above the pubic area where torn and weak muscles are repaired using stitches to tighten the muscles after which extra skin is removed.

In some cases, both procedures are recommended depending on the anatomy of the patient.

So the next time you think of getting a procedure done in order to fit into that beautiful dress, you can tell which procedure best suits you.
