Mohammed Baseerath’S Thank You Letter to MisoU Plastic Surgery.

Mohamed, an Indian resident in Australia, mistakenly injected lentil into his nostrils when he was a child and wanted to have nasal reconstruction surgery after all his nasal cartilage had collapsed. Mohammed’s case was not severe or urgent.

We encouraged him to make careful decision for the right surgery method.

Moreover, he was coming over all the way from Austraila to improve his concern of his lifetime, so that we could not put vain expectations on the patient. Mohamed, contacted us by emails since January 20, 2017. He considered to have this surgery for a long time and was distressed.

Finally, he decided to undergo the operation on September 25. Mohammed sent his wife and children on vacation to India and came to South Korea alone. He didn’t want his wife to worry his suregry so he only talked to his best friends about the surgery.

On the day of surgery, his surgery was not a easy case because his blood vessel wasn't clearly visible to do the suregry. , I remember it was giving us a hard time during the suregry. Mohammed, was a Muslim. So we prepared semi-cooked broth made from vegetable and Halal meat with rice.

On the day of his departure, Mohammed went shopping for a present for his wife. There was a slight problem until the end of departure.

I do not remember which airline it was, but the airline staff he told if Mohammed has any small surgical incision line, he has to wait 14 days after the surgery before he is allowed to go aboard. We tried to fix this issues and he finally was allowed to be board.

After he went back home, he sent us pictures once a month and we check his condition regularly through the pictures. Mohamed sent a thank-you note through the Gangnam Medical Tour Center, saying he was very happy with the outcome.
