Common Myths about Plastic Surgery

Plastic surgery is a transformative life decision. Among safety concerns and societal stigmas, the process can appear daunting. However, there are many misconceptions surrounding plastic surgery. At Berman Plastic Surgery & Spa, we’re here to debunk these misconceptions and provide clarity. Join us as we explore the truth behind common plastic surgery myths, helping you make informed choices about your journey to self-enhancement and confidence.

Myth 1: Plastic Surgery Is Not Affordable

The idea that only well-off individuals can afford plastic surgery is a long-standing myth. Cosmetic procedures have become increasingly affordable, with more and more everyday people seeking their benefits. At Berman Plastic Surgery & Spa, we offer three financing options, allowing you to make monthly payments based on your needs.

Myth 2: Plastic Surgery Exposes You to Extreme Risks and Complications

Minimizing risks in plastic surgery is a top priority in the industry. Moreover, Dr. Berman, a double board-certified plastic surgeon with over 30 years of practice experience, emphasizes the importance of disclosure during consultations, ensuring patients are fully aware of what to expect.

Myth 3: Cosmetic Procedures Are Purely Vain

Contrary to this belief, plastic surgery can have many positive impacts on one’s mental well-being. It can significantly enhance the patient’s self-esteem and overall satisfaction with their appearance, leading to an improved quality of life.

Myth 4: Results from Plastic Surgery Are Instant

Healing takes time. According to Dr. Berman, outcomes from many cosmetic procedures emerge gradually as the body recovers. Swelling can persist for months, affecting the look of your results. It is important to note that your entire results may not emerge for up to a year depending on the surgery you receive. Understanding expectations can prevent dissatisfaction with the procedure’s initial look.

Myth 5: The Risks Outweigh the Benefits

One of the most common misconceptions about cosmetic procedures is that they carry commonly occurring risks. Any medical procedure will have its risks. However, these risks can be managed and minimized in the capable hands of experienced healthcare professionals like Dr. Berman. Almost always, the transformative potential of these procedures profoundly outweighs the risks involved.

Myth 6: Unrealistic Expectations

Sometimes, patients believe that plastic surgery can achieve unrealistic expectations, but this is far from the truth. Ethical centers like ours always work towards setting realistic expectations, evaluating each patient’s circumstances, and providing customized treatment plans.
