10 Wrongs That are Known To Be True in Facial Treatments!
Many people have misconceptions about plastic surgery.
Especially when it comes to facial treatments, much more is thought about and we believe every word we hear wrongly. In order to counter this erroneous plastic surgery fiction, Samil Yazgan MD tells the 10 well-known mistakes.
“As you said, when it comes to the face area, almost everyone is much more careful and more nervous about how the change will happen.
Many erroneous articles and news, especially on Instagram and Google, cause confusion and erroneous information. Now I would like to list you 10 known misconceptions:
Plastic Surgery is Only For Celebrities
Wrong! Currently, almost everyone from housewives to business people wants to look good, wants to stop time and gets help from plastic surgery.
Because it's a human desire, and being confident about how you look greatly affects many aspects of life.
They report that 88% of patients have realistic expectations when choosing to have plastic surgery.
These same patients report feeling less anxious in stressful situations and have an overall higher sense of self-confidence.
Only Rich People Can Afford Facial Plastic Surgery
Of course, aesthetics are expensive procedures, you need to prepare your budget, but as technology advances, procedures are becoming less invasive and less costly.
Results Last a Lifetime
There are many different types of facial plastic surgery. For this reason, how long the results will last depends on both the procedure and the patient.
For example, after facelift surgery, as we get older, loosening and sagging will begin again and we can assume that it will have a lifespan of 10 years.
The only exception to the rule that nothing lasts forever is rhinoplasty. While the features of your face change, the general shape of your nose will remain the same throughout your life.
Non-surgical treatments, on the other hand, have a much shorter lifespan and need to be repeated regularly to maintain their effects.
For Seniors Only
Of course no. There are many types of facial aesthetics that have nothing to do with aging. Treatment of acne scars, otoplasty, rhinoplasty, hair transplantation can be done at young ages.
The Healing Process is Long and Painful
Of course, there is a healing process and you may have pain, but the pain is less than you expected and the healing process is likewise…
The Scar Will Be Noticed
All surgeries, including the facial area, leave some scars, but we plastic surgeons are skilled at concealing scars along the skin's natural contours so that scars are unobtrusive.
In face lift, we hide the scar in the hair line on the ear line, and if our patient pays attention to the following instructions, he or she will have a scar that gradually fades and goes unnoticed, and moreover, does not cause discomfort.
Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery are The Same Thing
Cosmetic surgeons and plastic surgeons should not be confused or referred to interchangeably.
While plastic and reconstructive surgeons make repairs, aesthetic surgeons make an attempt with an artistic point of view.
In our country, we graduate with the diploma of aesthetic, plastic and reconstructive surgeon, this is changing in foreign countries.
Botox is Botox, All Injectables are The Same
Actually BOTOX® is a brand. While what other injectable fillers achieve is similar, they are made differently by different companies.
Plastic Surgery is Very Dangerous
Any surgery always has some risk. To reduce your risks, you should choose a plastic surgeon with expertise in the procedure you are interested in.
Cosmetic Surgery is For Women Only
Wrong! Between 1997 and 2020, there was a 300% increase in male aesthetic procedures.
