A plastic surgeon who has been in the industry for 40 years is set to have her surgery at the center of a national debate over the safety of the surgery industry.
A petition from women’s rights group Planned Parenthood states that Dr. Anne Seagle, who works in the department of plastic surgery at Seattle Children’s Hospital, is the first female surgeon to receive a full, complete, and comprehensive plastic surgery, and is the lone female surgeon who will perform such procedures.
Seagle has been a surgeon for the last two decades.
A survey released by Planned Parenthood found that women have been waiting longer than any other time in history for plastic surgery.
“It’s something that’s very personal for me,” Seagle told Newsweek in an interview.
“I had surgery to have a nose job done when I was 19 years old.
It was a little too early to start getting surgeries done as a teenager.”
The American Academy of Plastic Surgery, which represents surgeons, called Seagle’s surgery “an important milestone in women’s access to a more complete range of cosmetic procedures.”
“We are proud to offer this surgeon this opportunity to help women realize their full potential,” the group said in a statement.
“We applaud Anne Seagling’s bold and courageous decision to pursue this groundbreaking surgery and look forward to seeing her and her team deliver on their promise.”
The group also pointed out that Seagle is not the first woman in surgery history to receive surgery in her 50s.
In 2011, the then-50-year-old Jennifer Todaro was the first person in history to get her own cosmetic surgery.
Seagled’s surgery will be performed at Seattle General Hospital, and Seagle will receive her $1.4 million in compensation for the surgery.
She will also be able to receive cosmetic surgery reimbursements for up to five years.
Seagles surgery is the latest in a string of surgeries in the area.
In March, the city of Houston announced it was ending its ban on private cosmetic surgery and has begun accepting private cosmetic surgeries.
The ban was lifted on June 18.
In September, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner signed an executive order that prohibits discrimination against residents based on their gender identity.
Turner said the move would allow more people to participate in the city’s public health initiatives.
