Columbus, OH -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/01/2013 -- Dr. Michael Sullivan, a facial plastic surgeon at the Sullivan Centre in Columbus, Ohio, has just posted a new and educational video about the dangers of excessive plastic surgery. In the interesting video, which was posted to the Sullivan Centre’s website, Dr. Sullivan discusses a medical condition called body dysmorphic syndrome.
As he explains, people who have this condition tend to have an excessive preoccupation about their appearance. As a result, they often become obsessed with cosmetic procedures and may go through dozens if not hundreds of plastic surgeries.
In the video, the Columbus plastic surgery expert tells the story about Alicia Douvall, a model from England who recently appeared on a news program to talk about her own personal experience with excessive plastic surgeries. Douvall said she has had over 350 procedures over the years, including six rhinoplasties, cheek implants, 11 procedures around her eyes and a facelift. She has also had additional plastic surgeries performed on other parts of her body.
People who suffer from body dysmorphic syndrome often need professional help, Dr. Sullivan noted, adding that he feels their physicians or surgeons have a responsibility to recognize patients who have this condition and refer them to the appropriate type of care.
Since the day the Sullivan Centre first opened, it has strived to offer each patient top-notch care in a warm and safe environment.
