Everything You Thought You New About Plastic Surgery Debunked


Cosmetic surgery is a hot topic in our modern world. Whether we are considering having it ourselves, trying to stop a friend from going ahead or marveling at people’s extreme procedures, it is something we are truly fascinated by. There are hundreds of different types of cosmetic procedures available, from eye lifts to boob jobs. Some are more popular than others, but everyone’s reason for getting them done is different. Sometimes it is purely cosmetic, but other times it can be to cover up the results of a previous medical surgery. A lot of people also have rhinoplasties (nose jobs) to cure respiratory problems. So what exactly can we believe about cosmetic surgery, and what facts need to be disposed of?

Men don’t get cosmetic surgery

Wrong! In fact, the men’s cosmetic surgery business is a booming market. The American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery even found that the number of men undergoing cosmetic procedures has increased by 106% between 1997 and 2012. Just as women are pressured to look good, men feel the strain too. Models and personal trainers with six packs are everywhere you look online. Plus, men’s naturally competitive nature means they will want to outdo each other, too. Some of the most popular procedures for men are nose jobs, liposuction, male breast reduction and eye lifts.

You can’t breastfeed if you’ve had a boob job

There is no scientific evidence that says it is unsafe to breastfeed your child post-breast augmentation. That being said, there is a very small chance that some of the silicone from your implants could be absorbed into your milk. But is nowhere near the amount that would be required to actually harm your baby. Medical professionals have deemed it safe to breastfeed after a boob job, and encourage women to do so, as breast milk is perfect for your baby.

Botox is only used cosmetically

Wrong again! Botox is one of the world’s most popular cosmetic procedures, largely down to it being non-surgical. A typical botox session would involve the solution being administered into the face via a needle, to minimize the appearance of wrinkles. However, there is actually a lot more to botox than meets the eye. It is also a popular relief for migraine sufferers. This is because the chemical agents in botox stop the nerves sending certain signals to certain muscles. The muscles then go soft and relax, resulting in less painful tension headaches. It is also used for people who excessively sweat, and can be injected directly into the armpit. If you are considering having this procedure, find out as much info about botox as you can before going ahead.

Liposuction helps you lose weight

Unfortunately, this is false. Liposuction is purely cosmetic, meaning it has no health benefits whatsoever – except that it may spur you into a healthy diet. In fact, you will be rejected for liposuction surgery if you are deemed overweight by your surgeon. Therefore, it is better to be in reasonably good shape even before you get liposuction.
