Facelifts make you crazy. (Not really.)

Has anyone else seen the HBO documentary Plastic Disasters? The facelift lady? (See right.) She's insane. Clinically. She needs treatment. She doesn't think she has BDD, but she so does.

oh oh oh ... I so saw that and that woman is absolutely certifiable. I even had to wonder if there were any surgery complications at all,...and that perhaps she stretched out her face like that on her own.

Sadly she should be committed but likely there is no one able to do so.

The show was pretty interesting but I don't think they did enough research or chose good cases.

I haven't seen the show and probably won't but I watched the clip. Isn't BDD also know as low self-esteem or is it vanity?

Scary! No, I don't watch those surgical shows...I have to close my eyes. I have a very delicate constitution :)

don't call me MA'AM said...

I saw that show. It skeeeeeeerrrred me!

Here's the thing I kept wondering... I totally think she's certifiable. But, then again, what if she isn't? What if she really can't breathe or swallow, and no one is believing her? That's a lot more difficult to believe than her being insane, but it scares me more to think she might be telling the truth!

I saw it and didn't think she was really insane. Just maybe a little off is all.

No matter though, her face just looked awful.

I find the comments here interesting, as they refer to me. I am the facelift patient in "Plastic Disasters". So, the majority here think I am insane? What do you call the doctor s who have lied and covered up the truth about my injury? Yes, it certainly IS more scary to think that I might be telling the truth.. that doctors will sacrifice a patient's health and even their life, rather than admit their mistakes. They will even lie on camera, knowing that most people will believe anything they say.

My website contains medical records, x-rays and reports of diagnostics, which prove my inability to breathe and swallow were caused by my facelift.
No, facelifts do not make you crazy... but doctors who inflict injury, lie and circle their wagons to insure the patient never receives proper medical treatment can make you more than crazy.. they can KILL you.
