Plastic Surgery: Not Everything You Read Is True

- Advertisement -

Let’s be honest, the plastic surgery industry has come on leaps and bounds over the last few years. Once upon a time it was awash with horror stories, but now times have changed and it focusses around completely normal procedures.

Of course, whilst it might be normal, it’s not without its issues. By this, we mean that there is a lot of misinformation doing the rounds which can really do the industry a disservice.

As today’s title has probably already given away, we will now take a look at some of the biggest myths that tend to come about through plastic surgery.

Breast augmentation is just a one-off

Granted, in some ways breast augmentation is a one-off. Out of all of the procedures that we speak about today, there’s no doubt that this one grabs the most headlines but this also attracts a lot of untruths.

The main point here is that this is not permanent. Most of these procedures will only last for ten years or so, and during this time you may need to resolve a leaking or ruptured breast implant. As such, don’t buy into the notion that this is a permanent fix.

You can use liposuction to lose weight

On the subject of “fixes”, let’s raise a point about liposuction as well. Sure, this has been a revelation in the industry, but only when it is used in the correct sense.

Let’s not forget that liposuction is great in the way that it is specific. If you want to lose weight from a specific area of your body – liposuction can help you do this.

However, if you need to shift more than ten pounds or so, you’re in for a surprise. It’s not effective for this, and you should instead to other tried and tested weight loss methods.

You have to avoid the sun after surgery

Another misconception doing the rounds is that you have to avoid the sun after any form of plastic surgery.

Sure, following on from some procedures which specifically target your face, this might be more of a concern. However, from a general sense at least, there are no further sun precautions you should be taking than what you usually should be.

You won’t have scars after surgery

The nature of plastic surgery leads many to believe that this is a procedure which eliminates scarring entirely. Unfortunately, this isn’t necessarily the case.

Let’s not forget that this is a procedure which still involves a scalpel. This scalpel will still be making incisions in your skin, and this should not be forgotten.

Of course, let’s not also forget that plastic surgeons are highly skilled individuals. They tend to make these incisions in the “natural creases” within our skin, and this obviously means that scarring is quite often masked.

This is another reason why you should always pay particular attention to your choice of surgeon, as it’s small things like this which can really make the difference.
