Plastic Surgery Is Not Vanity- Dr. Femi Oladeji

In an interview,  the Chief Plastic Surgeon at LekkiHill Hospital (Home of LekkiHill Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery) Dr. Femi Oladeji said that plastic surgery is not vanity but a health requirement for lots of people born with abnormality, accident victims or those with trauma. 

He said:

“Some people miss the opportunity to amend the deformity at early stage, because they did not know that such treatment is available. Now, as adult, carrying such things around is embarrassing. It could be traumas, somebody has an accident or anything traumatic, from fight, injuries from anything or disaster, as a result, they have structural or functional defect, it is the plastic surgeon that is called to fix it. 

“Somebody who has breast cancer may need surgery to remove that cancer. After such person has been treated and lucky to be alive but wants the shape of the breast back, plastic surgeons are called to reconstruct a breast for such a person.”

“For example if somebody has diabetes and there is no deliberate step to control the diabetes first, then there is no surgery.

“Sometimes, some of them do not know they have these issues until they get here and because we are following standard by checking all traits, that is when they discover that they are hypertensive, diabetes, etc for the first time. Someone who is so obese and feels it is just to go to LekkiHill And they would lose weight would be adequately advised.”

“Nigerians, especially very high and top persons, prefer to go abroad for cosmetic surgery, because they feel nobody will know they have done it. At LekkiHill, we take the privacy of clients seriously. 

“What is more important to us is the happiness of our clients and not taking glory that we executed the job, so we take our clients privacy very seriously. What we prime is the excellent service we offer and the joy of our clients. We do not compromise that in any away.”
