Do You Need a Plastic Surgeon?

January 14, 2011 at 9:20 am , by

No, I’m not talking about a lift or filler for those wrinkles creeping up on you. I mean if you had a facial injury and had to head to the ER—like Martha Stewart did yesterday. You’ve gotta love Martha and her perfectionism! When she startled her dog and he sprung up and somehow caused her to get a split lip, she thought fast. She asked for a plastic surgeon to be waiting for her at her local hospital. Then she had the presence of mind to document the whole procedure in a slide show on her blog. What a hoot!

I sent the link to Daniel E. Rousso, M.D. (right), a facial plastic surgeon in Birmingham, Alabama. He’s also the past president of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and a member of our brand-new LHJ Medical Advisory Board. I knew he’d get a kick out of it. But I was also curious if her little split lip really needed a plastic surgeon. Lots of ER docs would say they do a fine job on cuts like this every day.

Dr. Rousso enjoyed the blog. “She certainly has a flair for the dramatic,” he says. “But in this case, I have to admit that she really did need a plastic surgeon to close her laceration. The area on her lip that was lacerated (vermillion border) is one of the most critical areas on the face to repair properly. If it is not exactly aligned, the result can give a step-off defect that the human eye can easily spot. This is one time that her reputation and demand for perfection probably paid off.”

He also commented that he had to laugh at her attention to the dated ceiling border wallpaper. “It seemed to bother her almost as much as her lip!” That cracked me up.

We love Martha and hope she heals perfectly!
