Stories from the Operating Room: You Won’t Believe What Happened

When you’ve been in the plastic surgery field for as long as Dr. Adams has, you naturally have some stories to tell. Some of these stories would be hard to believe if he hadn’t been there to witness them firsthand, but all these stories are 100% true.

The number of stories that Dr. Adams could tell you would only be limited by the amount of time in a day. As the world evolves and humans are introduced to new technologies and advancements in society, the number of ways a person can hurt themselves is always growing. You would be absolutely surprised by the sort of injuries an emergency room sees on a daily basis.

With these new injuries comes advancements in treatments and surgical procedures. For example, before the invention of the automobile, doctors weren’t used to seeing injuries to the extent that we see today due to car accidents. This has led to a better understanding of how to treat and help those patients with more extensive injuries that people would never have experienced before.

This week Dr. Adams took to his YouTube channel to discuss just a few of the most unforgettable moments in patient care that he has witnessed during his career.

Unforgettable Moments in Patient Care

Wrist Reattachment

Some of the most unforgettable procedures that Dr. Adams has had to deal with is reattaching of limbs or body parts that have been cut off. While it’s not the rarest occurrence, what happened in this particular instance was out of the ordinary.

A worker was working near a large industrial an on top of a building and accidentally got his hand cut off at the wrist due to the spinning fan blade. When they brought him into the ER for surgery, they did not have the hand when they brought in the patient.

It turns out that when the fan cut off the hand, it sent the hand flying off the building and five stories down to the street below. Once it was on the street it was then run over by the local garbage truck. So once the hand was brought into the hospital it had tire tread marks on it and was badly banged up.

Thankfully, because of the skilled doctors at the hospital, they were still able to reattach the hand and after a lot of physical therapy, the patient now has a functioning hand again. But it’s not every day that a severed limb comes into surgery with tire tread marks on it after having been thrown off a 5-story building.

Hostage Surgeon

One seemingly normal morning in the hospital turned into a nightmare situation for everything on staff that day.

On a Saturday at one of the busiest emergency rooms in the southwest, Dr. Adams was walking into the ER as he normally would, when he noticed that there wasn’t a single person in the area, not even staff, and the area smelled like a firework had gone off.

It turns out that a person who was arrested by the police needed to be brought in for medical treatment, but decided to grab the police officer’s gun just before he was brought in. The suspect managed to get a shot off, which thankfully did not hit anyone in the area, and then grabbed a staff member in the ER and took her hostage.

He tried to make an escape with the hostage but released her as he ran out of the doors and took off down the street. A little while later the suspect was brought back into the ER due to a gunshot wound sustained when the police finally caught up to him.

And wouldn’t you know it, the same surgeon that he had taken hostage earlier, was the one that had to treat him for the gunshot wound when he was brought back.

Stories from the Operating Room

These are just a couple of the many stories that Dr. Adams has from his storied career as a surgeon in Texas. If you had the time, he could sit down and tell you stories about things you didn’t even know were possible.

It just goes to show you that doctors and surgeons truly have dealt with almost everything. Sometimes they even have to put their personal feelings aside in order to help out those that need their assistance.

So, if you like these stories and want to hear Dr. Adams talk about them directly or want to hear another story we didn’t include in this article, be sure to click on the video above.

Dr. Adams and his colleagues post many different informational and edutainment videos on his YouTube channel every week, so make sure you subscribe to stay up to date on what is happening in the world of plastic surgery!

Debunking TikTok Plastic Surgery Myths and Misinformation

Social media is everywhere these days, regardless of what industry you’re in. In the plastic surgery industry, we deal with the expectations that come from social media on a daily basis. Patients come in from all over the world with desires to look better on camera and on their social channels. “Influencer” is becoming a full-time job for a lot of these people and social media is how they get their opinions out to their followers and fans.

The latest social media start over the last few years has been TikTok, a video sharing app that allows you to upload short clips that people can view, comment on, and like; it’s the evolution of Vine and, if you remember those services.

The consumption of short, interesting, videos on TikTok has blown up across the globe as the younger generations flock to videos over pictures or text conversations. Gone are the days of Facebook and Twitter, the youth of today wants their information quick and visual.

With the growth of TikTok over the last few years, we’ve been asked many questions related to whether or not certain information found in videos is true. And because of the abundance of misinformation out there, especially medical misinformation, we decided to jump into a few TikTok videos and explain why the information may be true or false.

Debunking Plastic Surgery Misinformation on TikTok

For more information regarding the truth, or misconception, behind the information mentioned below, be sure to watch the video above. The video will show you the original TikTok clips as well as our own Dr. William Adams, as he explains why the information is either true or false.

Remember, there is a lot of misinformation and misconceptions on social media (and not just TikTok), so when it comes to plastic surgery or medical questions, be sure to consult with your doctor or surgeon before making any decisions. They will know what’s best for you based on past experience, medical records, and their medical knowledge.

I don’t know about you, but I would rather get my medical information from a doctor that has dedicated their life to medicine, has gone through the proper schooling and testing requirements, and has been practicing in their field for a while…. Not some random person on the internet who read an article or a study that they don’t know how to interpret correctly.

Are Human Faces/Bodies Symmetrical?

The truth is nothing in the human body is symmetrical. Even though it might seem like your face is symmetrical, or your body is symmetrical, there are actually slight variations between each side of your body.

Nipple Inversion Can Be a Sign of Breast Cancer

Nipple inversion itself is not a sign for concern. In most cases it turns out to be nothing, it can happen due to old age or genetics. While nipple inversion itself is not going to immediately scream breast cancer, if you notice your nipples suddenly becoming inverted, it’s worth talking to your doctor about.

Running Makes Your Botox Dissolve Faster

There is no truth to this myth. Botox will not dissolve just from the act of running or exercising. With Botox being the most widely performed non-surgical procedure in the world, there is no indication that Botox will dissolve quicker if you exercise or run versus not running or exercising.

Miami is Known for Cheap Brazilian Butt Lifts

Miami is definitely known as a hot spot for plastic surgery in general and bbl’s are no different. The important thing to keep in mind here is that you get what you pay for. Because of the social scene and the reputation that Miami has, there are a number of less-than-stellar offices performing plastic surgery that probably shouldn’t be.

Be sure to research your doctor and ask questions, don’t just find the cheapest person to do the procedure. These people may not have the proper qualifications or experience on doing these types of procedures, and there have been a number of deaths related to incorrect bbl’s.

Breast Augmentation Will Last 10 Years

Breast augmentation surgery can actually last much longer than 10 years if done safely and correctly. There are some breast implants that we’ve been seeing that are 20-25 years old and are perfectly safe and don’t need to be replaced.

Don’t base your need for breast implants or augmentation on the cost of the procedure, as shown in the video above, but rather on how it will make you feel. Most women who get breast implants notice an uptick in their self-esteem and their confidence. So rather than comparing the cost of breast implants to a cup of coffee, think about how it will improve your life over time.

Petroleum Jelly is Great for Your Skincare Routine

This is false and petroleum jelly is actually one of the worst things for your skin. It can clog your pours which can cause acne and breakouts. We would not recommend using petroleum jelly on your face as part of your skin care regimen.

Be Careful When Getting Medical Advice from Social Media

Social media is a hot bed of misinformation and it’s only gotten worse since the COVID pandemic. We would urge you to take everything you see on social media with a grain of salt unless it’s coming from an actual board-certified plastic surgeon or accredited doctor.

With the ability to make up anything and post it out for the world to see, you can never be sure what the intentions of people on social media might be. If you’re thinking about having plastic surgery and you have questions regarding the procedures, if you’re a good candidate, or the risks of certain procedures, make sure to consult with an actual doctor and not someone claiming to be on social media.

If you are looking for information regarding breast augmentation and would like to setup a consultation, please contact us at Dr. Adams Plastic Surgery in Dallas, Texas.

taylor swift plastic surgery

Celebrity Plastic Surgery Talk – Has Taylor Swift Gotten Plastic Surgery?

Arguably the biggest thing to happen to the NFL this year was Aaron Rodgers going down in his first drive as a New York Jet… The second thing would be Taylor Swift attending NFL games to see her “boyfriend” Travis Kelce.

Having Taylor Swift at any event or location is guaranteed to bring the media attention, whether good or bad. And whether or not you agree with the way the NFL has handled the new relationship, there’s no doubt that she has brought a lot more non-fans into the game of football than any other marketing campaign could have.

That being said, Taylor Swift is no stranger to attention and scrutiny. A star as big as her and as popular as her is going to be pulled through the media and dragged for any possible misstep she makes. But aside from the fact that she’s dated a few guys (which isn’t a misstep in any sense of the word), there haven’t been many, if any, negative aspects to her life that have come out in the media.

However, when it comes to beautiful celebrities who are constantly in the spotlight, there’s always that question about whether they’ve had plastic surgery or not. And since she’s the talk of the town right now, we decided to sit down, as plastic surgeons, and as fans, to talk about whether or not we feel she has any plastic surgery done over the years.

Taylor Swift and Plastic Surgery

As plastic surgeons in a lot of cases we can tell, or have a good idea, when a person has gotten plastic surgery over the years. In some cases, when the surgeon has done a great job, and the patient hasn’t requested to go overboard, it is much harder to tell.

Good plastic surgery should not be obvious while bad plastic surgery is going to be noticeable.

In the case of Taylor Swift, we do NOT believe that she has had any major work done over the years. Her facial structure and overall appearance has not changed drastically since she came onto the scene as a young teenager, and there is nothing obvious that stands out to us in terms of surgical work done on her face.

Is it possible that she’s had some botox or filler work in her face, absolutely, but from her facial appearance alone we do not see any indication of Taylor having any major work done over the years.

Yes, this could always be because she has a great, board-certified, plastic surgeon doing her work, but we’re leaning towards the more obvious answer.

In terms of the rest of her body, that is a little harder to determine. There have been talks over the years of her having a breast augmentation, but if she has, she still has a very natural look that suits her body type.

In our expert opinion, Taylor Swift has not had any major plastic surgery procedures done on her face, but may have had some minor filler work to remove aging lines and things of that nature.

She’s a very natural beauty.

Celebrities and Plastic Surgery

It is not uncommon for celebrities to go under the knife in order to maintain a certain level of beauty or youthfulness that their jobs require. Many celebrities have come out and said that they’ve had plastic surgery, while many others keep that aspect of their lives a secret from the public.

In some cases it can be very obvious when a celebrity has had some work done, but in other cases you’d never know. But the fact that these people are in the public eye and in front of our faces all the time, it’s easier for us to recognize more subtle or drastic changes in their appearance.

Anytime a celebrity comes out looking slightly different than what we recall of them, everyone automatically assumes plastic surgery, but that may not always be the case. People age differently, medical issues can cause changes in the way people look, and just the fact that maybe a person has retreated from the public eye for a while can change our we perceive them in our minds.

Plastic surgery is a great tool when in the hands of a great surgeon, however when in the wrong hands, the results begin to look more unnatural and can be more obvious.

Choosing the right plastic surgeon, one that specializes in the area you want to improve, is extremely important when it comes to the results you will experience.

If you’re thinking about having plastic surgery, please contact us today to setup a consultation. Dr. Adams is a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in breast augmentation among other procedures. And if he doesn’t feel that he’s right for your specific needs, he will be able to refer you to other surgeons that he trusts.
