1895 Early Facial Plastic Surgery Ad ~ John H. Woodbury

1895 Early Facial Plastic Surgery Ad ~ John H. Woodbury

This is an original illustrated magazine ad/article from the John H. Woodbury Dermatological Institute. Woodbury (of Woodbury Soap fame) encourages people to come to his institute to "cure all kinds of facial blemishes."

It is worth noting that in 1908, his Institute was brought to court for practicing medicine without a license, and subsequently filed for bankruptcy in 1911.

Photos include a "before" and "after" picture of a woman with an "abnormal Roman nose," and "a large wart on her cheek." The caption beneath the "before" photo notes that the woman's matrimonial prospects are "very weak." But after her surgery her prospects are "above par." Also includes a photo of a man getting a semi weekly electrical treatment with the Static Electricity Machine that took first prize at the World's Fair.
