Unani Medicines - How It Can help In Preventing Diseases?

It is very vital to prevent the onset of disease, before it can turn your life upside down. One of the most popular forms of alternative medicine, Unani stresses on the importance of prevention of diseases. Here are the six essential prerequisites that have been laid down by the Unani system for promotion of good health and overall well-being:

  1. Air: Good and clean air is vital in order to maintain good health. Today, many people are affected with several diseases due to excessive levels of pollution in our environment. A famous Arab physician named Avicenna once stated that a change in environment relieves the patients of many diseases. Unani medicine emphasizes the need for open and airy houses with a proper system of ventilation to keep diseases at bay.
  2. Food and drinks: You are what you eat and drink. So, make healthy choices in your diet to stay disease-free. The Unani system recommends intake of freshly prepared food, free from putrefaction. It specializes in prescribing diets according to the health condition of the individual.
  3. Bodily movement and repose: Physical movement and staying active is also very important to maintain good health. Unani medicine continuously stresses on the importance of exercise that helps the growth of muscles, increases blood supply, and maintains proper functioning of the excretory system.
  4. Psychic movement and repose: The Unani system has extensively documented the impact of psychological factors on our well-being. Happiness, sorrow, anger and stress play a key role in the treatment and prevention of disease. In fact, there is a separate branch of psychological treatment in Unani medicine that helps to deal with it.
  5. Sleep and wakefulness: Sleep provides rest, both physically and mentally. Lack of it can cause fatigue, digestive disturbances and mental weakness. A normal sleep time and active time of wakefulness are advocated for good health.
  6. Evacuation and retention: The waste products of the body must be properly excreted and all the essential nutrients should be retained in the blood flow. Without proper functioning of the excretory system, toxins build up in the body, leading to sickness and disease.

These essential prerequisites, referred to as Asbab-e-Sitta Zarooriya, are given utmost importance in Unani medicine. This system employs these basic principles in their therapy, which constitutes of the following:

  • Diet therapy – Regulation of quantity or quality of food
  • Regimental therapy – Takes care of evacuation of waste material from the body using various means
  • Pharmacotherapy – Use of natural drugs and combinations in their formulations with minimal side effects

Face Lift Surgery - The Associated Complications!

Face Lift Surgery - The Associated Complications!

It is no longer possible to tell a person's age by simply looking at the face. With the advances in cosmetic surgery, today it is very easy to effectively hide your age. A facelift or rhytidectomy is a cosmetic surgical procedure to reduce wrinkles and improve the overall appearance of your face. A facelift is considered a relatively safe procedure.

However, like any other surgery, it is associated with few risks.

  1. Pain: While a facelift surgery itself is usually performed under anesthesia, recovering from it might be a little painful. Your skin may also feel numb for a few days. Taking the pain medications prescribed by your doctor can help relieve the pain. However, if the pain is severe or if it suddenly increases, you must consult your doctor immediately.
  2. Swelling: Don't worry if your face looks swollen after the surgery. This is simply your body's natural reaction to the surgery. You will notice this swelling reduce in a few days. Though most of the swelling will subside in the first few days after the surgery, it can take a few weeks before the swelling completely subsides.
  3. Bruising: Like swelling, bruising is a natural reaction to surgery. In most cases, people see pronounced bruising especially around the eyes in the first few days after the surgery. Most of this bruising will fade away in a few weeks, but it may be a few months before your skin is clear again.
  4. Scarring: As your face heals after a facelift surgery, scarring can be seen wherever the incisions were made. Most cosmetic surgeons will make these incisions along the hairline or the natural creases of the face. This ensures that the scars are not prominently visible. In most cases, scarring fades with time till it is barely noticeable.
  5. Bleeding and hematoma: A certain amount of bleeding is normal after a facelift surgery. However, excessive bleeding or uncontrolled bleeding can lead to the formation of hematomas. A hematoma can be defined as a blood clot that occurs under the skin and outside a blood vessel. This can leave the area swollen and a minor surgery may be required to flush out the clot.
  6. Loss of sensation: Sometimes, nerve endings may get damaged during a face lift surgery. This can result in temporary loss of sensation in the area and difficulty in controlling the facial muscles. There may also be numbness or a tingling sensation around the incisions.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Lipoma Excision - Facts You Need To Be Aware Of!

Lipoma Excision - Facts You Need To Be Aware Of!

Lipoma excision is the surgical removal of lipomas present in the body of persons affected by lipomatosis. People affected with lipomatosis have fatty lump-like accumulations in the subcutaneous tissues of the head, neck, shoulders and back. These fatty deposits are slow-growing benign tumours that are mostly painless and soft, mobile masses. A lipoma or multiple lipomas that exceed 5 cm in size and cause cosmetic disfigurement, pain or restrict movement in individuals, require surgical intervention. The classic method for removal of lipomas is excision biopsy or lipoma excision, which involves the incision and removal of the deposits and their capsules. However, the surgical removal of a large lipoma or multiple lipomas often results in disfiguring scars.

Pre-Surgical Procedure
Outlining the lipoma area prior to the surgery with a marker serves as a guideline for the surgeon. The marked area is then cleansed with betadine solution. Sterile towels are used to drape the area after cleansing. Local anaesthesia is administered along with a field block into the subcutaneous area.

Enucleation
This procedure is followed for lipomas of smaller sizes. An incision of 3-4mm is made over the lipoma, following which a curette is placed in the wound to cut away the lipoma from the surrounding tissue. The tumour is then enucleated through the incision with the curette. A pressure dressing is applied to prevent the formation of hematoma after enucleation. Sutures are not required for this procedure.

Excision
Larger lipomas or multiple lipomas spanning larger areas are best removed by incisions made on the skin overlying the lipoma. The incisions are made in the form of a fusiform excision that are aligned with the skin tension lines and are smaller than the underlying tumour. A haemostat is used to grasp the skin inside the incision; this provides the necessary traction for removing the tumour. Once the central island of skin has been grasped by the haemostat, dissection is performed beneath the subcutaneous fat to the tumour. A scalpel is used to cut away tissue around the lipoma. Cutting of tissue is carefully performed under direct supervision to avoid damage to surrounding nerves or blood vessels. For further removal of the remaining lipoma mass, haemostats or clamps are used. Once freed, the lipoma is removed as a whole, and haemostasis is achieved.

Occasionally drains have to be placed for preventing fluid accumulation. The skin is then closed with nylon sutures and a pressure dressing is placed to prevent formation of hematoma. The wound is checked in 2-7 days and the sutures are removed after 21 days. Lipoma excision often results in complete cure. Common risks associated with lipoma excision are hematoma formation, surgical infection, injury to nearby tissues, and deformity due to the incision.

Facelift Surgery - Know Its Complication!

Facelift Surgery - Know Its Complication!

The skin has underlying protein layers, mainly having collagen and keratin. With age, they lose elasticity and the skin begins to sag. This is where facelift gained popularity with various techniques including Botox, chemical fillers, laser beam treatment, and chemical peels. Read on to know how these minimally invasive, economic options work in literally lifting up the face:

  1. Laser treatment: A beam of laser (usually CO2 laser) is used to make small dots on the skin with normal skin left untouched in between. This causes tightening of the tissue underneath, producing a firmer appearance which can take off years from the appearance.
  2. Botox: This accidentally discovered neurotoxin is used to treat wrinkles and sagging skin. The sagging areas of the face (usually forehead and nasal folds) are injected with Botox. The wrinkles are gone and the fine lines are lost, and the result can last for up to 8 months.
  3. Fillers: Chemicals which are naturally present in the skin like hyaluronic acid and collagen extracts are injected into the skin to fill up the underlying skin and produce a fuller, younger appearance. The lower cheeks, corners of the eyes and mouth, and area under the eyes are commonly treated by this method.
  4. Chemical peeling: The top layer is often peeled off using chemicals so that fresh, younger-looking skin is generated. This also helps in reducing pigmentation, reducing forehead lines, de-tanning, and producing a glowing, radiant, younger-appearing skin. It also can be used in other skin conditions including rosacea.

While each of these is widely popular, they come with a set of potential risks and complications.

  1. Anaesthetic reaction: Most of the above procedures require local anaesthesia and there could be a reaction to this chemical.
  2. Hematoma: There could be small hematomas in the underneath layers of the skin, which will take some time but dissolve on its own
  3. Numbness/tingling: The face has a rich nerve supply, and if any of these are touched, there could be numbness or tingling or even loss of sensation in some cases. While some may improve with time, there also could be permanent damage
  4. Scarring: In chemical peels, there could be minor incisions and therefore scarring can happen.
  5. Delayed healing: Depending on the person’s immunity, healing could be delayed, and as it is the face, social and/or professional life can be affected.
  6. Infection: As with any surgery, chances of infection arise and can be managed with antibiotics.
  7. Bleeding: As most of these are non- or minimally-invasive, chances of severe bleeding are less but still persist.
  8. Bruising: The face, in the immediate postop period, can have a bruised appearance, which will improve over 4 to 5 days.
