Plastic Surgery Myths Exposed (You’re Going to Love #3!) By Michael A. Devlin, MD on February 05, 2015





For some people, Plastic Surgery tends to be one of those love-it-or-hate-it topics.

Here are a few typical MYTHS:

MYTH 1 – Those who undergo plastic surgery are vain or narcissistic.

Not so! Women apply makeup to cover up or accentuate parts of their face. They do it because they want to improve their appearance.  Most people who receive plastic surgery do so for the same reasons.

MYTH 2– Women are the only ones getting plastic surgery.

Not so! Since 1997 there has been an increase in men having Plastic Surgery by 297%

MYTH 3 – Plastic surgery can change your life.

It’s true!! Having a procedure done to enhance or correct a part of your body that you don’t love can give you a renewed sense of self-esteem and a boost in confidence that is sure to send you on new adventures in life.

MYTH 4 – Liposuction can be an alternative to regular exercise and a good diet.

No! Liposuction works best when it is paired with an existing healthy lifestyle.

MYTH 5 – Botox can cause illness or a “frozen” expression on the face

No, and not exactly. The composition of Botox is safe and approved for its intended uses. The formula is purified and cannot cause Botulism in patients having Botox treatments. The “frozen” expression can occur if an untrained surgeon injects too much of the Botox formula. Choosing a highly trained and specialized plastic surgeon is the best way to ensure great results.

MYTH 6 – You need to be rich to be able to afford plastic surgery.

Not so! 15.1 million Plastic Surgery procedures were performed in 2013, not all the patients were rich and famous. Most patients that get plastic surgery treatments are everyday people who are interested in boosting their self-esteem
