Common Plastic Surgery Myths Debunked

Plastic Surgeon Serving Orlando, Winter Park and Nearby Areas of Central Florida

Plastic Surgery MythsPlastic surgery is a popular way to improve your appearance and your self-confidence. More than 15 million procedures are performed each year. However, there is a lot of misinformation that circulates about plastic surgery. In this blog, we debunk three of the most common myths.

You can’t treat cellulite.

Wrong. Although many over-the-counter creams really are a waste of time and money, the clinically proven Cellfina system is FDA-cleared and can reduce the appearance of cellulite for at least two years. Cellfina is a minimally invasive treatment with minimal downtime that provides long-lasting results.

Liposuction helps you lose weight.

Not true. This misconception has been around as long as liposuction itself. Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that does remove fat from unwanted areas, such as your abdomen or thighs. However, patients should be near their ideal weight. Only a small amount of fat is removed during the procedure in order to sculpt the treatment area and provide astonishing looking results.

A facelift will leave your skin looking stretched.

It really shouldn’t. A skilled plastic surgeon can turn back the hands of time on your facial appearance without making your results look like you’ve “had work done.” The goal of a facelift is to revitalize your appearance by correcting flaws such as sagging skin and jowls to give you a more youthful appearance.
