The Myths of Cosmetic Surgery

Cosmetic surgery is popular these days, but that does not mean there are not any myths surrounding this type of surgery still. For patients, it is vital they are informed correctly, especially if they are considering a cosmetic surgery procedure for themselves in the future.

Below, we have listed the most common myths about cosmetic surgery as well as the true answer to these myths. If you have been curious about cosmetic surgery and some of the myths surrounding it, be sure to read the information provided below.

Is Cosmetic Surgery Only Suitable for the Rich and Famous?

Dr Lanzer explains that the majority of people seeking cosmetic surgery today are suburban Australians. Many do it to look better in the work force or to appear younger or less tired. The cost of most procedures has not changed in the last 15 years.

Do Only Women Have Cosmetic Surgery?

Probably 50% of the procedures are now performed on men. The most common being removal of man boobs using a method that leaves very little or no sign of having had surgery.

Is Cosmetic Surgery Only Suitable for the Young?

About 15 years ago, Dr Lanzer was featured all around the world having performed dramatic cosmetic surgery on a 74-year-old. At the time, Dr Lanzer explained that a person’s age is totally irrelevant when considering cosmetic procedures. Newer procedures have less risks and often can be performed without general anaesthesia. Therefore, Dr Lanzer regularly operated on patients in their 60s, 70s, and occasionally 80s.

Do Only Vain People Have Cosmetic Surgery?

Cosmetic surgery is not always about being vain but often relates to self-esteem and wanting to look as healthy as one feels. In some respects, cosmetic procedures have become an extension of buying nice clothes or putting on makeup. Of course, there can be a reason other than self-esteem for someone to obtain cosmetic surgery. Many women have breast reduction due to pain from the excessive weight. Others have tummy tucks due to residual effects of pregnancy that have damaged the muscle and skin.

Will Liposuction Remove the Fat Forever?

As liposuction removes the actual fat cells, the effects may be lifelong. However, with weight gain, fat can recur classically in other areas first.

Will Cosmetic Surgery Cause a Startled Appearance?

Most patients want a natural result and therefore prefer procedures such as a mini facelift, liposculpture of the neck, laser eye rejuvenation and skin texture treatments. Deep facelifts and brow lifts have more potential to produce a startled appearance.

Will I Have Scars Left After Cosmetic Surgery?

Whenever a surgeon cuts the skin, there has to be a mark. Although marks can be kept to a minimum by key hole surgery or placing an incision in a crease fold, as one does with a mini face lift around the ear.

Will Muscle Relaxants Make My Skin Look Blank?

Muscle relaxant injections are extremely common and reduce the visible wrinkles particularly around the eyes and forehead. In most cases it gives natural, normal looking results.

Will I No Longer Be Able to Breastfeed with Breast Implants?

Any surgery on the breast may affect breast feeding. By placing the implant deep under the breast and muscle of the chest, this risk is greatly reduced.

Is Surgery the Same Thing as Cosmetic Surgery?

Cosmetic surgery is aimed at making a patient look younger and healthier. Surgery is often performed for deformities and for reconstructive purposes.
