(Like someone a person admires)” (Top Ten Reasons, 2013) This reminded me of the famous Kylie Jenner, who is known to have dabbled in the art of cosmetic surgery. Well, dabble might be a bit of an understatement as The youngest of the Kardashian/Jenner clan has been said to have had up to six different cosmetic surgeries, spending a reported $40,000, and she just turned 18 not to long ago (Tate, 2015). While the main reason she got plastic surgery remains unconfirmed by Jenner herself, many people think that it is to be more like her sisters, none of whom are strangers to cosmetic surgery. Looking at pre-surgery picture of Jenner and then pictures of post-surgery Jenner, she looks more like her big sister Kim Kardashian than herself. This is just one example of a person using plastic surgery to change their looks into someone that they admire rather than who the actually
Leid (2014), a news reporter, mentions, “The Long Island woman died from complications after getting liposuction and a tummy tuck last week, her three young children and their dad were there.” (para.8). People usually get involved with the first cheapest cosmetic surgery clinic they acknowledge, due to the fact that they will be receiving a well processed procedure. However, most of the time it does not transpire that easy. Many doctors may not even be considered doctors, and might not even have the suitable
With family support, she went through intense chemotherapy treatment, where she responded positively, and was cancer free for four years. But during a regular screening last year, the doctors found another cancerous tumor affecting her left side breast. For all of us as a family, the news was a shock, because we all thought that it will not re-occur again. She started the fighting journey again, and until this date she is going through treatment, and with our support we hope that she defeats this illness. This experience I went through made me question the effectiveness of chemotherapy used to treat cancer, the pharmacology of the drugs used, and how we ca... ... middle of paper ... ...alysis methods.
There are interesting research trails that show impressive results in various studies from many scientists and institutes. Gene therapy had its first break in the 1990’s when scientists successfully treated a four-year old girl named Ashanti Desilva. Desilva had a type of SCID called ADA-SCID. The disease has been called the “Bubble Boy” disease because people who have the disease have little or no immune system against germs and bacteria. Desilva was not completely cured of ADA-SCID but her symptoms were managed enough for her to live as a close as a normal life as someone with this disease could (Update: Genetic Engineering).
Is Cosmetic Surgery giving adolescents false hope that it can “cure” deep insecurities or is it giving teenagers the confidence to be comfortable with their newly improved bodies? “In Miami, FL—Melissa Gonzales used the money she had gotten from her eighteenth birthday to have her breasts augmented. Melissa Gonzales is one of the many individuals who have had success with aesthetic surgery though there are still many who regret their aesthetic procedure like Kacy Long. Kacy Long had gotten implants three years ago. A few weeks following the surgery she began to endure shooting pain in her arms, followed by intense joint pain and crushing fatigue.” (Farrell) These two have had cosmetic surgery but have had different experiences.

Almost on the horizon of college and taking harder classes as the school year goes by. It is something I keep in the back of my mind so I don’t get discouraged and that I keep trying. But for teaching me and make a difference in my life, beating cancer, and being herself has been why she should be inducted into the Lincoln County Hall of Fame. Yes, I know she didn’t ride a bull for eight seconds, but to me she was the bull by conquering cancer for 8 months.
It turns out my mother had scar tissue in her gastric region. However, when the doctors saw all the scar tissue it did not surprise them as to why all the tests came back negative for any abnormality or as to why she was in so much pain. Doctors are aware that scar tissue does not show up on any kind of test, thus the results turned out normal. I can still hear the doctors voice, “It is a good thing you came here when you did, because had you have gone another month without us catching it you would have died. Your scar tissue was so built up it was literally pushing on all your organs and it would have continued to expand and compress them to the point where they would have ruptured.” After hearing all of that I was
Dr V Pathmanathan and his team, who transplanted a left arm onto baby Chong Lih Ying from her twin sister who had died at birth, had already performed over 300 such operations (2). The controversy occurs when the limb is not simply reattached, but is transplanted from one person to another. This is because limb transplant patients, like any other transplant patients, need to be given anti-rejection medication, immunosuppressive therapy (1), so that the body's immune system does not recognize the new limb's tissue as foreign and destroy it (3). In fact, Chong Lih Ying was the only limb transplant patient not to receive immunosuppressive drugs. Because her arm was transplanted from her twin, there was very little risk of rejection (2).

The surgeons performed the first uterus transplant in the U.S. Unfortunately, the nation’s first uterus transplant failed. The operation lasted for nine hours as it was intended for women with uteruses that were damaged by a disease or born without one. One of their patients, Lindsey (26), experienced complications and the uterus was removed. I think the doctors in Swedish were successful because they got the uterus from live donors so the organ was functional but Cleveland doctors used deceased donors.
