Dont know what to say


So i have been to a craniofacial surgeon today on my workhours and asked for an attest for work but it says plastic surgery on it and now im a bit ashamed to give it to my boss :/ dont want to make a bad rep for going to a surgeon for something thats "cosmetic" 😔

Does it have to say plastic surgery on it? Can it just say, "medical reasons". Your health is protected info you only need to tell them the bare minimum.

Its a paper from the surgeon we need something like that to go to a doctor in belgium i hoped it didnt say that but it does :/ i guess i will have to be honest about it. Atleast now i have been formally diagnosed with severe plagiocephaly and i can look into options for surgery

Plastic surgery is way too big. If you don’t want to expose your situation you could simply tell you went for a plastic surgeon to remove a nevus. Here it is very common when the nevus is in a visible place


Hm, that's a difficult one. Do you think your employer might be understanding if you had an honest chat about how your condition sometimes affects your confidence?

Hey dolly i just told the truth kind regards
