There are hundreds of visually based social media accounts that cater to the plastic surgery industry. Many high profile surgeons have marketed themselves through Instagram and Snapchat.  It is incredible how social media has even made its way into the operating rooms of surgeons! Consenting patients and surgeons are sharing these uncensored, graphic videos of going under the knife. It has become a popular trend to put in a specific hashtags like #drdevgan to search and find the latest beauty trends and operations. It has become a an effective marketing strategy to reach new clients. It is incredible how platforms like Instagram make it fun and easy to control and show the world your content. 

By sharing photos and videos of surgical procedures and final results, surgeons like Dr. Devgan have built a monumental following of people who regularly check and engage in their content. This has positively influenced the growth in popularity of surgeons. Ten years ago patients would bring in a magazine photograph of a super model or celebrity and now people are bringing in Instagram filtered photos of themselves.

Dr. Devgan agrees that it is a great way to market yourself but like anything else there are pros and cons to using social media to find your surgeon. Social media is unregulated, which makes it hard to thoroughly and diligently make sure what you are seeing is safe and accurate. We must be careful when watching certain doctors and surgeons who are not board-certified like Dr. Devgan and many of her colleagues. There are plenty of questionable characters abusing the lack of regulation online. Dr. Devgan herself has had her photos and videos stolen!

MTV’S “True Life” one of the first reality television shows to air is coming back after 21 years! Why? Our social media obsessed society has decided that the Kardashian clan is what defines 2019 beauty standards. The first episode of the the Emmy award- winning reality show focuses on people obsessed with looking like the Kardashians. Women are feeling pressured to have a big butt and fake breasts.

Plastic surgery and procedures have evolved dramatically over the decades. In the past people did not feel as comfortable being open about wanting cosmetic plastic surgery. Now, in 2019 celebrities like Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian have paved the way for society to be open and confident regarding cosmetic surgeries and procedures.

According to Dr. Devgan there is less guilt about undergoing procedures. “Five or 10 years ago, people might have brought in pictures of a magazine cover supermodel. Now, they're bringing in pictures of themselves, but just in a slightly optimized way." In a report by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons scientists have called “Snapchat dysmorphia” one of the reasons plastic surgery is steadily increasing. The most popular being the Brazilian butt lift. This focuses on enhancing the overall size, shape, and perkiness of the backside.

What is lip contouring? It is the newest procedure being performed on women and men. It is done under local anesthesia using a tiny blade to make an incision beneath the nose at the edge of your nostrils, ultimately raising your upper lip. The procedure is done in Dr. Devgan’s office, taking only 20 minutes. How could you not love this method!?

Moving personal essay on skin cancer

This is one of the most touching personal essays I have ever read about skin cancer. 

Featured in the New York Times, sports journalist Tim Layden writes lyrically about the basal cell carcinoma on his nose and what it took to repair it. I encourage everyone to read it-- as a piece of literary writing, and equally importantly, as a wake-up call about the devastation that can result from a casual disregard for sun protection. As Layden writes:

 How did I get myself into this mess? The same way that Hemingway’s Mike Campbell went broke in “The Sun Also Rises,” “Gradually, then suddenly.'’

Skin cancers are tricky because they often don't play by the rules, but they do have some classic features. 

Basal cell carcinomas are pearly pink, sometimes with an area of bleeding or ulceration, or a central crater, and sometimes with just a subtle area of redness. They are usually found on the nose, ears, face, and neck. These are the most common skin cancers; 30% of Caucasian people will get a basal cell cancer in their lives.

Squamous cell carcinomas usually begin as a small reddish plaque. Often they don't have any symptoms, but they can bleed, ulcerate, and change over time. They are common on the lips, face, hands, scalp, and ears, and they metastasize throughout the body.

Melanomas are less common than the other two types of skin cancer, but they are the most deadly because of their aggressive tendency to metastasize. They are usually on sun-exposed areas, but can be found anywhere at all, including the eye, the fingernail, and even the bowel. The are usually pigmented, irregular, and evolve over time. The ABCDE nmemonic was developed for melanomas.

Much of my practice focuses on the excision of suspicious lesions and the reconstruction of skin cancers, so I am especially passionate about this topic.

Make sure you are vigilant about any new freckle, spot, mole, lump, or bump on your body. Skin cancer can happen to anyone, of any skin type-- not just the fair-skinned. When they are caught early, skin cancers are much less disfiguring and much more survivable. Get regular skin checks by a dermatologist. And wear zinc/ titanium based sunscreen everyday.
