Myths and Facts About Cosmetic Surgery


November 15, 2016

In the digital age, there are all sorts of crazy rumors floating around about the Plastic Surgery industry. Some ridiculous photos of failed surgeries, horror stories and other events have been circulating for years and we want to help you learn the facts. Below, we debunk some of the most common myths associated with our industry:

Myth: Plastic Surgery is all for the looks.
Fact: Have you ever heard the expression, “look good, feel good?” That is the true beauty of plastic surgery as it gives people a new outlook on life. If a patient goes in with realistic expectations, they’ll come out looking and feeling better and more motivated.

Myth: Plastic Surgery is way too expensive.
Fact: As technology continues to evolve, the average price of cosmetic surgery continues to decline. In fact, procedures like laser hair removal and SmartLipo have made old procedures far less invasive, thus making them cheaper. Plastic Surgery is not a ‘rich person’ thing anymore!

Myth: Plastic Surgery leaves your body scarred.
Fact: Compared to traditional forms of surgery, plastic surgery actually reduces scarring on your body significantly. Plastic surgeons are trained in the art of aesthetics, making them experts at hiding and minimizing scarring from the procedure they’re performing.

Myth: Liposuction Surgery leads to weight loss.
Fact: While it puts you on the path to weight loss, Liposuction does not keep fat from coming back. That part is up to you, and a healthy diet and exercise plan can keep you looking and feeling your best after surgery.
