In 2010 Julie Bass Kaplan, an experienced nurse injector from California, was herself treated with Radiesse in the mid face during a training session. Julie suffered an infraorbital artery vascular occlusion, and went on to experience all the stages of necrosis.
When a clinician shares their own personal experience of a complication, as Julie did so graciously in this case, it is a true gift to the rest of the medical aesthetics community, because we get to learn from very well documented images and a detailed breakdown of each stage of the complication.
In this week's Aesthetics Mastery Show, Dr Tim goes into detail about the clinical aspects of Julie's case, including:
- Explaining what the mottled rash - livedo reticularis - is and how to look out for it in your patients.
- Some important learning about how the needle's angle of entry might have contributed to the occlusion.
- Which other vessels might have been affected and why.
- And a detailed breakdown of the stages of necrosis, including images from Julie.
Thank you so much again to Julie for sharing her experience, and the invaluable learning for all of us that has come from that 🙏
IN NEXT WEEK'S SHOW: Dr Tim will be sharing his analysis of the lessons clinicians can learn from Julie's case, so make sure you subscribe and turn on notifications for that.
