A popular decision to go abroad for plastic surgery can also be a potentially dangerous decision. For one Charlotte woman, the risks of having plastic surgery abroad almost cost her life. Dr. Nyame of Charlotte Plastic Surgery answered the urgent call from the hospital one night to perform procedures to save her, her life. Now she wants to share her story to warn others of the dangers with traveling abroad for plastic surgery, also known as medical tourism. Hundreds of thousands of people go abroad to have plastic surgery every year and participate in medical tourism with no complications. However, it is important to understand the risks and potential dangers of choosing to have plastic surgery abroad.
Medical Tourism is a trend sweeping across the U.S., where men and women are flying aboard to get medical procedures done, like plastic surgery, for a fraction of the cost. The dangers of medical tourism almost cost one Charlotte woman her life when she flew to the Dominican Republic to have her 360-liposuction, Tummy Tuck and Brachioplasty plastic surgery procedures completed. Charlotte Plastic Surgery’s board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Theo Nyame, donated his services to perform countless life-saving procedures for this Charlotte woman who lives to tell her story today and warn others of the dangers of medical tourism.

Dr. Jack Scheuer of Charlotte Plastic Surgery explains the phenomenon of “Selfie Plastic Surgery” and the difficulties associated with the new trend of “Snapchat Dysmorphia.” According to Dr. Scheuer, there can be a big disconnect between the goals of cosmetic surgery versus patient expectations.

In this brief video, Dr. Jack Scheuer explains the Pro-Nox System. This is an inhalational system that the team at Charlotte Plastic Surgery uses for procedures performed outside of the operating room. These include procedures such as injectables, laser procedures, and contouring procedures. The Pro-Nox system delivers a a self-administered gas comprised of 50% oxygen and 50% nitrous oxide to the patient, meaning the patient controls the amount that they receive. The best part? The effects wear off within minutes after usage stops, and the patient can drive home! Charlotte Plastic Surgery is proud to be able to offer the Pro-Nox system as an extra measure of comfort and added pain reduction to our patients. If you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to give us a call!
WCNC interviewed Dr. Theo Nyame, regarding a recent story involving the death of a patient of Dr. Briggs Cook , the owner of Pure MedSpa in Hunterville, NC. After reviewing the consent order that was submitted to the court, and to which Dr. Cook entered voluntarily, Dr. Nyame expressed his concerns. He further explained that the proper procedures include proper training and the administering of anesthesia by an anesthesiologist. A prospective patient can verify a physician’s credentials on the Medical Board’s website. It is of paramount importance that if you are considering cosmetic surgery, you thoroughly check the credentials of your physician, visit the facility where your procedure will be performed, and meet with your physician, asking all questions until you feel comfortable with both the physician, the staff, and the procedure.
