The birth of plastic surgery and acceptance of cosmetic medicine began a century ago with the work of surgeon harold gillies 🇺🇸 wwi brought a huge rise in facial injuries and this man's work revolutionized the field of facial reconstructive surgery to help these young soldiers regain a part of themselves 💪 saluting an unforgetable revolutionary and war veteran. #veteransday2018 #cearna

This veteran’s day, i thought it would be fitting to tell you all a little more about dr. harold gillies, the wwi pioneer of plastic surgery. due to the nature of trench warfare, the soldiers dr. gillies treated often experienced significant facial trauma, since their heads were vulnerable to attack. dr. gillies understood that the emotional and social trauma of facial disfigurement was often more significant than the physical damage. for this reason, there were no mirrors at his hospital in england, and he had all of the benches at the adjacent park painted blue to signify safe refuge for disfigured soldiers - and to warn passersby to leave patients in peace.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
to reconstruct the wounded soldiers’ faces, dr. gillies borrowed innovative techniques from around the world, including one from india, where doctors had long been attempting to reconstruct noses historically chopped off as a form of punishment for theft or adultery. for his first nasal reconstruction, gillies took a piece of rib cartilage and placed it under the skin of his patient’s forehead. when the wound healed, he detached the expanded skin and cartilage, leaving a portion still attached temporarily to preserve blood flow, then folded it down to simulate a nose. once the graft was established, gillies detached the remaining skin and molded the flap as necessary to achieve a more realistic result. this technique, known as a pedicle flap, is still widely used in reconstructive plastic surgery - in fact i use it in my own practice.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
the sacrifices made by veterans worldwide, and by those who have cared for them, are truly immeasurable, and have left a legacy of healing and hope.

Tomorrow at 11:00am the nation will fall silent - 100 years after the guns of the first world war fired for the last time, marking the end of #wwi.
first world war commemorations began in 2014 with services to mark 100 years since britain entered the war.
since then, there have been 4 years of events commemorating major battles & key elements of the war across europe.
take a look back at tributes to the fallen by following the link in our bio @theroyalfamily

While so many women objectify themselves daily and men some of you being their audience are their enablers.
here is where my heart bleeds!
oh, and fyi not all plus size women are on the prowl thirsty or desperate for attention! you see some of us are very much in tune with who we are and who we're called to be! some of us understand and respect the power and authority we have been given by god as women and so we honor him before pleasing man anyday! which in today's society is a separate war all in itself!
it's ok p***e is not the worst thing i've been called in my lifetime! being complicated either however being a child of god a woman of god. i understand that to whom much is given much is required of me of us! so, everytime i allow someone's opinion of me cloud my judgement or cause me to even remotely contradict my integrity and character in anyway. it is then time for me to exit stage left. not because i'm running from but because you've now caused me to make a conscience decision of just how much does your presence much less your opinion of me really matter? how does your perception of me....serve me?
we all came from god but were birthed out of the wombs of our mothers!
just me being raw and uncut for a change!
