Indian teenager has 232 dental growths removed

Fri

A teenager in India has undergone a gruelling seven hour operation to remove 232 dental growths from his mouth. Ashik Gavai, 17, was filmed having the astonishing number of ‘teeth’ extracted at the JJ Hospital in Mumbai after his lower jaw started to swell up. It was revealed that Ashik was suffering with a condition called complex odontoma, which means that tooth-like growths composed of enamel, dentin, and pulp tissue, sprout out of the gums continuously – it tends to affect teenagers rather than adults.

Head of dentistry at the hospital, Sunansa Shivare-Palwankar, told AFP that this could be a world record, as the current record for teeth removed at one time is just 37. She said ‘We operated on Monday and it took us almost seven hours. We thought it [would] be simple surgery but once we opened [him up] there were multiple pearl-like teeth inside the jaw bone.’ After extracting the smaller ‘teeth’, the team discovered there was a larger ‘marble-like’ structured under the tissue which took much longer to remove. Eventually it was drilled into smaller sections and extracted piece by piece.

Mr Gavai appeared to be exhausted after the surgery but managed a small smile for the photographers. No doubt he will be pleased that the team managed to preserve his jaw bone and that he will not be left with any noticeable deformities.

More Indian men ‘are opting for Botox treatment’

More Indian men 'are opting for Botox treatment'Higher numbers of image-conscious men in India are opting for Botox treatment in a bid to improve their complexions.

According to the Times of India, Bhubaneswar males are following suit from their counterparts in Mumbai and Delhi by selecting the anti-wrinkle injection.

In addition to the non-surgical procedure, increasing numbers of men are seeking liposuction, facelifts and laser hair removal to reverse the signs of ageing.

Cosmetic surgeon A K Rout claimed that the number of male patients had risen significantly in the past two years, when 90 per cent of treatments were performed on women.

"Both men and women are required to look presentable and well turned-out to get ahead in the competitive world," Mr Rout added.

The increase in the number of males receiving cosmetic treatment could come as a result of high numbers of celebrities selecting Botox to look younger.

Simon Cowell and John Barrowman are among the high-profile figures who have received the anti-wrinkle injection to improve their appearance.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800627169-ADNFCR

Popularity of botox increases among older men

Popularity of botox increases among older menNon-invasive botox treatments are becoming increasingly common among middle-aged patients, new figures reveal.

According to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, non-invasive botox treatments were up by two per cent in 2010, especially among baby boomers.

The number of male surgical operations remained stagnant at 1.1 million between 2007 and 2009, the figure increased to 2.1 million in 2010.

Experts have put the increase in the number of male botox enthusiasts down to the fact that middle-aged men are becoming more conscious of their appearance and are becoming more open to surgical treatments to improve the way they look.

Mumbai-based cosmetic surgeon Manoj Kumar J Manwani, who deals with approximately 5,000 – 6,000 cases every year, said: "All lunchtime surgeries take less than an hour, are non

-invasive or superficial, can be done with local anaesthesia and show results immediately."

Douglas Ray Jr, 65, recently filed a £12 million lawsuit against botox maker Allergan, claiming that the substance caused him to suffer brain damage.  ADNFCR-2621-ID-800513517-ADNFCR
