ARACHNOPHOPIA

by Dr. Clarissa Kroese. DO, Aesthetic Medicine

Maybe it’s not really spiders you’re afraid of, but possibly it’s those unsightly spider veins that look scary…..

Let’s talk about spider veins (medically know as Telangectasias) for a second. Spider veins are red and purple blood vessels that occur in patches usually on the legs but can appear other places as well. They are often genetic, but can also be hormonally induced. They may be associated with pregnancy and menstruation or develop when you spend a lot of time on your feet.

Spiders veins do not pose a serious health threat. They can, however, cause localized burning, pain, aching, and discomfort. Mostly they are a cosmetic concern to most women who develop them. If you would like to rid yourself of these tiny pest, we can help. Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to eliminate spider veins. It involves an injection of a safe solution directly into the vein. The tiny vessels scar and will fade from view. The procedure can be completed in our office, is minimally invasive and has almost no downtime.

Now is the perfect time to rid yourself of spider veins and be ready for vein free/ beautiful legs this summer. Call our office today for your free consultation at 248-524-0620.

The gift of plastic surgery?

The gift of plastic surgery? Is that Acceptable?

You may have heard of cosmetic surgery being given as a gift in the past – perhaps a husband gave his wife a breast augmentation for Christmas or a Rhinoplasty for Mother’s Day ? At first glance, this may seem inappropriate, but why since many receive gift certificates to other establishments like spas, restaurants and stores?

The reason is that it’s a little more complicated than it seems at first. Most plastic surgeons draw the line at a consultation as the only reasonable plastic surgery gift. However, if the doctor and patient agree that a procedure is reasonable, and the patient desires the procedure then certainly the patient can have a third party pay for it. At that point, there are only financial obligations, but not ethical issues.

Note to the men out there. Don’t surprise your significant other with a nose job that she has never mentioned before or isn’t on board with – you might end up in the dog house. Send her to the spa instead.
