You certainly cannot believe everything you read about cosmetic surgery because much of it is simply false. This area of medicine is surrounded by myth much of the time because many people are too embarrassed to ask their practitioners the truth. Here are four of the top myths that patients believe and the truth that will help you feel better about correcting a feature that bothers you.
Myth: My Cosmetic Surgery Will Require Weeks of Recovery.
Most cosmetic surgeries are done on an outpatient basis, and many require only a few days of recovery before you can return to work. You may need a bit more time than this before beginning strenuous activities. Other cosmetic surgeries can be done at the end of a week so that you can recover over the weekend and be back to work by Monday.
Myth: My Cosmetic Surgery Will Look Unnatural.
A good provider will always ensure that your surgery results look perfectly natural. Dr. Tavoussi prides himself in his artistry and looks carefully at facial symmetry and proportions to determine exactly what changes to make. He also works carefully to ensure that his work is precise and perfectly finished.
Myth: My Cosmetic Surgery Will Help Me Look Just Like My Favorite Actress.
It is impossible to look exactly like someone else without loads of unhealthy procedures. Instead, you should discuss one or two particular traits that you would like to tweak with your provider. For example, while you may not be able to look just like Kim Kardashian, you could opt for lip fillers to get fuller lips as she has.
Myth: My Cosmetic Surgery Results Are Permanent.
No cosmetic procedure will be permanent because there is no way to stop the aging process in your body. However, by following Dr. Tavoussi’s post-operative instructions carefully and by caring for your skin with daily sunscreen and topical treatments, you can see many surgical procedures last you for well over a decade.
