3 Myths About Plastic Surgery

Are you aspiring to go for plastic surgery? Is it a rhinoplasty or breast augmentation? Or are you planning to get rid of excess fat with liposuction? Well, whatever it is, it’s better to proceed with thorough knowledge on the technique and the procedure. It will help you to make an informed decision. The post below sheds light on some of the top myths about plastic surgery.

Liposuction is your absolute key to weight loss

No, that’s not possible.

It’s to stress that liposuction sucks out fat from some specific parts in your body. If you have developed excessive fat in a certain portion of your system, liposuction will be helpful. But it can’t suck out from the overall body. It can remove maximum 10-12 lbs.

For effective and overall weight loss, you would have to follow a healthy diet and exercise regularly, even after liposuction.

There will be no scars

Again it’s a faulty myth that should be debunked.

When you go for plastic surgery, you will have to go under knife. And what happens when a knife cuts through your body? You end up with scars. So, it’s natural that if you go for plastic surgery, you will incur scars. Yes, skilled plastic surgeons try to minimize the magnitude of scars as much as possible. Visibility of scar is dependent on the incision made by your surgeon. Your post-operative care also plays a crucial role in determining how long the scar will be visible on your body.

It’s a one-time affair always

Plastic surgery is not a one-time affair in several cases. You will need a touch-up after a certain period of time. It’s especially the case with breast augmentation and face lifts. Over time, say after 10 years, your body will lose out on the effects of surgery. It will call for touch-up or re-do once again for effective maintenance.
