After the owner and doctor in charge of the Advanced Body Sculpt Centre (known as Obengfo Hospital) was charged with murder over the mysterious death of Stacy Offei Darko (who went for a surgical procedure at the hospital), Ghanaians have raised lots of question about safety and the qualification of people who perform such procedures in the country.
Cosmetic surgery, a unique discipline of medicine focused on enhancing appearance through surgical and medical techniques, has become very common in Ghana.
Cosmetic surgery can be performed on all areas of the head, neck and body, and since treated areas function properly but lack aesthetic appeal, cosmetic surgery is elective.
Complication from these surgeries could include Hematoma, Nerve Damage, Infection, Deep Vein Thrombosis and Pulmonary Embolism, Scarring, and Organ Damage among other things.
Dr. Kwasi A. Debra, Lead Surgeon at the Centre for Cosmetic Surgery Ghana, listed some tips to consider when going for a cosmetic surgery exclusively on Ameyaw TV.
