Blog — Notes of a Plastic Surgeon

Welcome to my blog. I am a plastic surgeon in Seattle and have been in private practice since 1991. I've seen more than a few interesting faces and cases through my years spent in the exam room, the operating room and the emergency room. And I have an opinion on just about everything relating to plastic surgery (and a lot of unrelated stuff). If you like my blog, let me know. Thanks for reading! Lisa

No fez for me.

Seattle Plastic Surgeon is soooooo disappointed to learn about Turkey’s ban on the fez.

That fez will get you in trouble with the Turkish authorities.

Just today I had a friend return from a trip to Turkey.  I had asked her to buy an authentic fez for me just for fun.  Well, there was no fez for me in her bag of gifts.  She learned, while she was there, that the fez was banned in the 1920″s as part of Turkey’s push towards secularization and modernization.

Now I am all for separation of church and state and for modernization but at such a price?   I think the fez is just one of the coolest head adornments out there – and they add a good six inches to one’s height. So my pal goes to Turkey and all I get is a lousy belly dancing scarf.

Thanks for reading!  Dr. Lisa Lynn Sowder
