Today, people undergo plastic surgery for many reasons and there is no limit to the types of cosmetic surgeries and treatments available for those who want to alter or improve their looks. However, as plastic surgery was never intended for this purpose and was initially created to help burn victims and people with scars.
Celebrities in particular often make the news for different surgical enhancements and treatments that they undergo to improve their appearance. Cosmetic surgery has become such a common practice on Hollywood that almost every other celebrity has had at least one part of their anatomy cosmetically enhanced. Some people like Jenny Lee have even become “celebrities” of a sort (albeit for the wrong reasons) for the number of plastic surgeries she has had performed on her.
Felipe Massa, however, is having plastic surgery for the right reasons and this must be commended! Massa was injured in a freak accident caused by a large metal spring smashing into his helmet at over 100 miles per hour. The spring blew off the top of Brawn driver Rubens Barrichello's car and moved into the path of Massa’s car, hitting his helmet and cracking into his skull. The blow fractured part of his skull and required the 28 year old Ferrari driver to have surgery to repair the damage. After the surgery, Massa recovered fully but was left with a raw looking scar on the left side of his face.
Massa confirmed his decision to go in for the plastic surgery after he met with several experts in Miami including Professor Stephen Olvey, head of the Jackson Memorial Hospital Neuroscience Intensive Care Unit. Massa also confirmed to having had tests done in the United States.
"I am very happy with the success of the tests. After a minor surgery, I will finally be able to begin some exercise and begin some training in a kart. I will take things one step at a time. For now, I am only concentrated on getting back into shape," he said.
The surgery will be performed on Massa’s skull which was injured in the accident that occurred over six weeks ago in Hungaroring. Massa is expected to have a successful surgery and will be able to resume physical work after a short convalescence.
