3 Myths About Plastic Surgery

Posted by administration on January 15, 2015

When it comes to plastic surgery in Denver, many people have preconceived notions that are simply untrue. Dr. Serota at Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Center would like to shed some light on three myths about plastic surgery.

1. Only celebrities and rich people can afford plastic surgery.

Certain plastic surgery procedures can be quite costly. However, with the Aurora plastic surgery financing options that exist today, the cost of procedures like breast implants, tummy tucks and liposuction can be spread out over several years, making them very affordable for almost any budget.

When you consider less invasive procedures like dermal fillers and BOTOX in Denver, these are even more affordable and can truly rejuvenate your appearance.

If you are unhappy with any aspect of your appearance, don’t let cost deter you from scheduling a free Cosmetic Consultation. You can find out exactly how much different plastic surgery procedures cost and how you can afford to boost your self-confidence. You may even learn about alternative options to achieve your goals that cost less than you ever imagined.

2. Plastic surgery is only for women.

Women traditionally undergo plastic surgery more than men. However, plastic surgery for men in Aurora is gaining popularity. In fact, according to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), cosmetic procedures for men have increased 106% between 1997 and 2012. Men benefit from such procedures as:

  • Dermal fillers
  • Liposuction
  • Tummy tucks
  • Chest implants
  • Male breast reduction
  • Calf implants
  • Penile enhancements

Men choose plastic surgery to look younger, feel more masculine and compete with younger men in the workplace and socially.

3. Plastic surgery will last forever.

Many plastic surgery procedures do have long-lasting results. However, one should never expect a plastic surgery procedure to last forever. Aging, lifestyle habits, environmental factors and more play a role in how long results will last. For example:

  • If you undergo a liposuction procedure in Aurora and then proceed to consume unhealthy foods and stop exercising, the fat that was removed will most likely return.
  • Breast implants typically have a life-span of 10 years and may need to be replaced at some point in the future.
  • BOTOX and dermal filler injections must be repeated to maintain the results.
