Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 8, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, January 8, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 35 Consumers beware byLYNNEGORDON Buying a face lift In the new year, we tend to think of a fresh start, a new approach to life and new projects. Strangely enough that even includes consumers thinking of cosmetic surgery. Have you ever thought of plastic surgery as a consumer purchase? Of course it is. First of all you bare laying out a good chunk of money for the product but even more than that, you are investing your emotions. And certainly its important not only to make sure your financial investment pays off but that your emotional one is rewarding also. It's important to take a good hard look at buying a face lift before you make any commitments. What makes any woman or man decide to chang" his looks, straighten a nose, tighten a jawline, remove excess tissue frqm under the eyes, remove fat- ty tissue from the lids? One of the most publicized cases was the cosmetic surgery involving comedienne Phylis Diller. When she was in Canada, I interviewed her about her operation which cost thousands of dollars. I asked why she decided to have a face lift after so many years. After all, I pointed out, she was a successful show business personality, she had made her fortune joking about her face and seemed happily married to her second husband. Her answer was direct: "If a Rolls Royce breaks down and has a flat tire, you fix it. My face was a flat tire." She went on to explain that she had made up her mind to have surgery when she was watching herself at home one evening on a taped show and she felt she looked terrible. "I had a growth on my neck, my nose was crooked, I had baggy pouches under my eyes." But according to doctors, Phylis Diller was a prime can- didate. She had so much that needed correction, and these "deformities" show the most dramatic results. But the problem arises when most people have unrealistic expectations about themselves. That is the biggest problem a plastic surgeon has with a prospective patient. One of the most common mistakes you can make is to stand in front of a mirror and push up the sides of your cheeks and neck toward your ears, so that the lines around your mouth and nose disappear and your neck looks smooth. This may look wonderful When you do it with your hands, but usually its im- possible to duplicate with surgery. Where are you going to hang all that skin? When doctors cut too much you get that frightening, mask like look. It's important to know why you want surgery. Some con- sumers think it's worth any risk if it reduces feelings of anxiety and intense unhappiness or if it allows them to have a better relationship with the opposite sex. This can be very disappointing, since an operation cannot dispel the inner feelings you have about yourself. It may even delay you from coming to grips with your personal problems. Remember, magazines tend to show misleading before and after pictures. Photographs can be touched up or light can be altered to exaggerate the good side. You should never under- take surgery to please someone else not your friends, not your husband not your doctor, not even your lover. Some people find it a boon in their business... such as people in show business, people dealing closely with the public or for those scarred in an accident. Don't kid yourself that this operation is a minor one, it's only minor when you are talking about someone else. Every operation carries a risk. The complications could include reaction to the drug, infection, bleeding, a superficial sensory nerve cut during surgery and a lack of feeling for a cer- tain time. Certainly with today's new technique, the risk factor is lower but one thing to remember is that cosmetic surgery takes a healthy, undamaged body and subjects it to the risk of being damaged and unhealthy. Once you have thought about cosmetic surgery carefully and made the decision to go ahead, then search carefully for the right doctor then ask a lot of questions. Check with friends, ask the advice of your family physician. Ask to be briefed thoroughly. What actually can be ac- complished? Will the entire operation be done at one time? How soon can you expect to come back for remedial surgery? Since its a lucrative field and the price soars with the popularity of the doctor, ask him to lay the cost on the line. A basic face lift does not usually include the price of your nose or eyes. Certain types of cosmetic surgery are covered on Alberta Health Care but all plastic surgeons will extra bill their patients for purely cosmetic surgery. Alberta is the only province in Canada which provides a health plan that covers hospitalization as well as part of the fees. Once you get all the answers and your decision is final, trust your doctor completely. After all, your face is in his hands. But you might pause a moment and think: Now that your dream can come true with cosmetic surgery, maybe it's time to suspect your dream!

Terpstra Proprietor Doctors indicted on drug charges NEW YORK (AP) The chief physician for the U.S. Open tennis championships at Forest Hills and four other doctors have been indicted on charges of illegally prescribing tranquillizers and sleep- ing pills to youngsters. Dr. Daniel Manfredi, a well-known Park Avenue specialist in treating tennis elbow, pleaded innocent Mon- day to 17 counts of il- legally writing out prescriptions for Seeonal, Tuinal and Biphetamine. Three pharmacists also were indicted. The indictments were triggered by complaints from parents, patients and employers, ac- cording to special nar- cotics prosecutor Frank Rogers, who led the four-week investigation. Rogers said he was grateful to druggists who reported that a large number of youngsters were com- ing in too often with the same prescriptions from the same doctor for a controlled sub- stance. Manfredi, an orthopedic surgeon, was released on his own recognizance. William Talbert, chairman of the Forest Hills tourney, said Manfredi had been the physician for the U.S. Open for as long as he could remember. The other doctors in- dicted were Angelo Tor- tora, 77, of West Babylon: Jacob Handler, 71, Charles Carlino and Renato Tomaulo, all of the Bronx. The pharmacists were Matthew Golden of Purchase, charged with sale of barbi- tuates, and Herbert Baldinger, 45, of Smithtown, and Seymour Salob, 38, of Manhattan, charged with illegally selling hypodermic syringes and needles as well as unlawfully prescribed drugs. Prince Charles 'lonely' LONDON (AP) Prince Charles says he's lonely, has no particular girl-friend and gets some rough treatment from the press. Prince Charles, 26, was talking in an interview with Stuart Kuttner of the London Evening Standard. "The older I get the more alone I said the Prince of Wales. He said that people who push their friend- ship on him usually have some ulterior motive. "The nicest people are those who won't come up and make themselves he said. On marriage, he told Kuttner he believes the real basis for lifelong happiness is "basically a very strong friendship" rather than romantic infatuation. "My marriage has to be for- he said. "Obviously there are certain people I've thought of. But I wouldn't say anybody in particular at this moment." He was mildly critical of the treatment he gets in some the headlines that built up over a recent visit to a pub in Corn- wall and his request to try scrumpy, the rough local cider. "Everyone must think I'm an he said. Part of the loneliness in his life results from the im- possibility of moving around without being recognized, he said. Kuttner asked whether he ever uses diguise. "It's quite said the prince. "I tried it once I just looked like me trying not to look like me." SPAGHETTI Libby's 14 oz. WHOLE BEETS Libby's 14 oz.
