Despite its establishment since long in the medical world, cosmetic surgery’s long history has led it to be the subject of many myths and rumours which have injured its reputation in the minds of people.
As experts in cosmetic surgery, we have compiled a myth-busting guide to dissipate these rumors once and for all.
Myth 1: Facial surgery and injectable treatments will steal your expressions
We’ve all seen pictures of the well-known anti-wrinkle injection and other facial surgeries went wrong. Whilst it’s true that injectables like these can leave you with complications if applied by a non-certified, and un-trained person but experienced professional will target the right points, making sure that your facial muscles all work together as they should.
Myth 2: Breast implants make breastfeeding difficult
Because breast implants are placed under the breast tissue, there’s no reason that women with implants can’t breastfeed. It is recommended that women have breast implants either before or after having children, and not when nursing, in order to keep the experience as comfortable as possible.
Myth 3: Cosmetic surgery is only for older women
It’s widely believed that cosmetic surgery is solely for women, especially for those over a certain age. In fact, cosmetic surgery is suitable for men and women, from age 18 onwards, as well as younger people who may require reconstructive surgery. With a broad range of treatments out there, all encompassed under the umbrella of ‘cosmetic surgery there are no specific people who can or can’t be treated.
Myth 4: Cosmetic surgery is only for the rich people
The range of treatments is now so broad that there is an option for every budget. In your consultation, you’ll be able to discuss your budget with a professional who’ll be able to let you know the options available to you so that you can make an informed choice and see the results you’re after.
Myth 5: The results last forever
Unfortunately, nothing lasts forever and this rule applies to cosmetic surgery too. Anti-wrinkle and injectables do wear off over time, but the effects can easily be renewed with regular maintenance sessions. Other surgeries may slow down the process of aging, but you’ll still notice natural changes that can’t be stopped even by the best surgeon!
Myth 6: You’ll look ‘fake’
As we mentioned in our first myth, the surgeon you choose will play an important role in the treatment results. At the London Aesthetics and Rejuvenation Centre we will make sure you see the result you are expecting, ensuring you achieve a natural glam look. Your consultation will allow you to discuss your expectations with the consultant and terminate any doubts and questions you may have.
Myth 7: Only hopeless people have cosmetic surgery
Many people are insecure about their bodies and some require surgery for health reasons. Taking steps to change these doesn’t make an individual vain or shallow. Cosmetic surgery is designed to help people good about themselves and boost self-confidence for improved overall quality of life
