Some common Myths & Facts about Plastic Surgery

by Priya Sharma Best Cosmetic Plastic Surgeon in Gurgaon

Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty that aims to improve the appearance of an individual as well as involves the reconstruction of facial or body tissues that might be deformed due to illness, trauma or birth disorders. Except for the central nervous system, plastic surgery can be performed on any part of the anatomy whereas cosmetic surgery is a sub-specialty of plastic surgery that aims to repair or reshape the normal structures of the body without affecting the functionality of the organ. These two terms are used interchangeably but are quite different from each other. Likewise, there are many more myths about plastic surgery that people are unaware of.

In this article, Dr. Shilpi Bhadani, consultant plastic and cosmetic surgeon at SB Aesthetics debunks some of the common myths related to plastic surgery procedures.

Myth: Plastic is used during plastic surgery

Fact: It is a common misunderstanding among many people that plastic is used during plastic surgery procedures. It is a purely baseless assumption. The word plastic originated from an ancient Greek word "plastikos", which means to give form or shape something.

Myth: Plastic and cosmetic surgery is only for women

Fact: While it is true that majority of women opt for various plastic and cosmetic surgery procedures due to many female-oriented procedures such as breast implants, breast reduction, breast reconstruction, etc, but they are not the only ones who benefit from plastic surgery procedures. Many plastic surgery procedures can benefit males too. Procedures like hair transplant, calf augmentation, pectoral implants, etc. are mostly opted by men. So, now the ratio between males and females patients for cosmetic and plastic surgery is reducing with passage of time. The best clinic for plastic surgery in Gurgaon, SB Aesthetics provides plastic and cosmetic surgery procedures for both males and females.

Myth: Plastic surgery results are permanent

Fact: Plastic surgery is an ideal option to alter the appearance of the face or any other body part but the results are not permanent. With aging, injuries or other factors, the results might change. But, if the patient is willing to maintain a healthy lifestyle and commit to less invasive office procedures or regular touch-ups, the results might last for longer duration . However, longevity depends upon the type of procedure. For instance, anti-wrinkle injections require regular maintenance sessions within a few months whereas breast implants need to be replaced after 10-12 years.

Myth: Plastic surgery does not leave scars

Fact: Plastic surgery involves some degree of incisions (that are mostly hidden the body natural creases) so there is a risk of scarring after the surgery. But the plastic surgeon makes sure to make incisions at the places that can be covered by clothing. Topical treatments can also help to heal scars faster. Dermabrasion is also another non-invasive method to smooth scars.

Myth: Plastic surgery gives an artificial appearance

Fact: Due to the advancement in plastic and cosmetic surgery, the treatments are provided with the most advanced technology using the right technique. A certified and experienced plastic surgeon, makes sure to provide the best and natural-looking results to their patients, that do not look plastic or fake.
