Do YOU Know the Truth About Cosmetic Surgery?
- Posted on: Jul 15 2016
The Internet has altered the way that we obtain information on a wide variety of subjects. Due to the prevalence of this new technology, it seems absolutely normal to place a great deal of trust and search results for your desired topic of interest. The fact of the matter is that Google searches may not provide you with the fullest extent of information you expect. If you’re interested in cosmetic surgery, the last thing you want is fictional details.
Let’s look at some truths about the important decision you’re trying to make.
Cosmetic surgery is done by a cosmetic surgeon
Of course cosmetic surgery is something focused on appearance, hence “cosmetic.” The idea that cosmetic surgery is a medical specialty, however, could lead to disaster. Cosmetic procedures such as breast augmentation and facelift surgery can be performed by a doctor recognized as a “cosmetic surgeon,” or buy a plastic surgeon. What is the difference? a classic surgeon is has completed medical school and has then moved on to perform several more years of training in the form of residency and fellowship focused on general and plastic surgery. The physicians in our Plantation plastic surgery group have been trained in highly specialized areas such as plastic and reconstructive surgery, craniofacial surgery, and numerous aesthetic treatments. This additional training far exceeds what the average “cosmetic surgeon” obtains.
Cost drives the decision regarding cosmetic surgery
This bit of information is partially true, and partially inaccurate. Cost is an important consideration when choosing a plastic surgeon. However, not in the way you may think. It is better to choose a plastic surgeon based on credentials and experience than on a special deal. If necessary, take more time to save for your desired procedure. Rushing into surgery at a lower cost could mean choosing a physician that lacks the necessary skill to achieve your desired outcome.
It is women who seek cosmetic treatments
This old myth used to be truer than fictional. However, men in today’s society are much freer, and much more open, about correcting the signs of aging with surgical and nonsurgical treatments. The number of cosmetic procedures performed on men as increased more than 200% in the last decade.
