In the past, the prospect of having a cosmetic surgery was met with wide eyes and disbelief amongst Nigerians. But with the diffusion of cultures world over, ‘body goals’ is now a thing that has come to stay, even in this clime.
More and more Nigerian women and celebrities are taking to surgery to enhance their looks for the vanity of it or for the more obvious reasons as ‘snatching’ back post baby.
Well, actress Georgina Onuorah has given her two cents on the subject. She took to her Instagram page to advise women to run due diligence on their proposed cosmetic surgeon to whom they hope to entrust their health.
The actress was reacting to the viral story of the US based lady who is currently on life support after undergoing a nose job in Mexico, read here: Texas Woman On Life Support After Nose Job Goes Awry
Here’s what she shared below:
Warning to all my sisters crazy about big butts. While you contemplate having that waist , breast and buttocks snatching. Be careful!
There is nothing wrong in a woman’s decision to enhance their beauty either post pregnancy or to correct some deficiencies. While you make these decisions consult with the best, weigh the side effects and the long term consequences. Any idiot can set up a surgery center , have you done your due diligence by checking if these folks are board certified? What their credentials are? If they have liability insurance Incase anything goes wrong?
Ignorance is no excuse.. If majority of you know the consequences associated plastic surgery let alone anyone done wrong, you will seek professionals help and consults before reaching such conclusion to go under the knife. The greatest killer post surgery is INFECTION let alone in Nigeria where we have zero guidelines and rules governing health care let alone plastic/cosmetic surgery. Are the equipments used on you well sterilized?
Beauty comes at a cost.. 10 years from now, I hope you don’t regret being botched.
Personal responsibility is important. An informed patient is an empowered patient. If you have to go enlarge you butts, go to board certified plastic surgeons. Don’t follow trends you can not keep up with 10 years from now. Remember we lost a former First Lady due to complications from plastic surgery in Marbella Spain. While they do fat transplants, use silicone and raise your muscles to perform all these shenanigans! Remember side effects and Adverse Effects. I hope none of you face any sentinel events. Where are all my doctors in the house, please explain more to our people.
