Miguel Torres is a mixed martial arts fighter, so cuts and bruises are part of the job. But after a particularly nasty cut, it seems Miguel has opted for plastic surgery to repair the damage.
29-year old Miguel Torres received the cut on March 6th at the “WEC 47: Bowles vs. Cruz” event against Joseph Benavide. Since then, MMA News has reported on Miguel’s taking care of the cut, even recording his repair surgery and posting pictures on the web.
While many have reported that Miguel is having plastic surgery to repair the wound, it seems that it may not be a plastic surgeon doing the work, and as a result, the fighter may be left with a scar.
OcBody plastic surgeon Dr John Di Saia says, ” That was not closed by a plastic surgeon and will leave a scar…maybe a nasty one. Of course he might not care.”
Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, California says, ”In regards to Miguel Torres’ plastic surgery for the cut on his forehead, the surgery was performed by a plastic surgeon in order to minimize scarring and obtain the best outcome possible. This is not a special plastic surgery, other than that it is a precise wound closure which sometimes may be performed by sealing the wound in different layers. This may involve placement of deep sutures subcutaneously or in the deepest layer of disrupted tissue. But in some situations, a single-layer closure will suffice. Whether or not a procedure like this is common depends on the fighter choosing to have a plastic surgeon perform the work. There will be a scar, but if the procedure is performed properly by a highly skilled surgeon, the goal is for the scar to be minimally visible.”
Miami Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “
Makemeheal.com wishes Miguel a speedy recovery and recommends he looks into scar revision surgery if he doesn’t wish to mar his appearance overmuch.
