With all the information and misinformation you can find on the internet, myths and fictions are not hard to come by, especially when researching plastic surgery. There are numerous plastic surgery myths, but here are 3 of the most common:
- Myth: Only wealthy people get plastic surgery. The growth of the industry alone is proof that a great diversity of people undergo plastic surgery each year in the US. Everyday people who decide to improve their confidence and self-esteem, and start feeling better about their appearances, opt into plastic surgery every day, not just the rich and famous.
- Myth: Plastic surgery results are permanent. Though the results are as wide-ranging as the variety of surgical and non-surgical procedures, generally speaking, results are long-lasting but rarely permanent. Cosmetic surgery cannot stop the aging process or changes to your weight or skincare routine, and all of these things will eventually affect cosmetic results. Even breast implants are not permanent devices, and will likely have to be replaced at least once in your lifetime. But with a little extra attention to great skincare, maintaining a stable weight and living a healthy lifestyle, you can make your plastic surgery results last a very long time.
- Myth: Men don't get plastic surgery. In fact, men make up a significant portion of plastic surgery patients. From BOTOX® to male breast reduction, men opt for many different types of surgery, sometimes to fight the signs of aging or to restore feelings of attractiveness and masculinity.
It can be nearly impossible to separate the myth from fact without speaking to a qualified, experienced, caring plastic surgeon. To schedule a complimentary cosmetic surgery consultation at Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery, please call our experienced Lone Tree, CO team at (720) 457-4471.
