Cosmetic surgery is a branch of medicine which has the aim of improving the esthetic look of people. It has to be differed from plastic surgery. While cosmetic surgery, as its name tells us, serves for esthetic purposes, i.e. it can be done but it is not a necessity, the main goal of plastic surgery is retrieving the function of a part of a body. For instance, if you want to undergo rhinoplasty because you think your nose is too big and ugly, that is a task for cosmetic surgery.
However, if you have serious health problems and the primary function of your nose as a breathing organ is distorted, it means that you need plastic surgery. Both these branches of medicine are present in popular culture more than some other ones, primarily because of celebrities. Nevertheless, many rumors and myths about them simply do not match the real situation and now you can have a true insight at some of them.
Breast Surgery – Solution for Life
When it comes to the breast augmentation process, it has to be pointed out that you cannot just undergo this procedure and then relax for the rest of your life. The thing with breast implants is that they have their expiration date. Depending on the manufacturer and the quality of implants, the average age of these fillers is from ten to fifteen years. Also, it is possible that you will have to visit a surgeon even earlier, because your body and the shape of breasts change. All this means that once you decide to have implants in your breasts, it becomes a life-long obligation, rather than a long-lasting solution.
No Scars Afterwards
Another myth when it comes to cosmetic surgery is that scars that remain on your skin are invisible to human eye. This might be the case with famous people, who can spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on their cosmetic surgeries and undergo numerous belonging treatments.
If you do not belong to that elitist cast, you have to be prepared for the possibility of having a scar after the surgery. A careful and skilful surgeon will always do their best to make incisions (which may later turn into scars) on the parts of the skin that are already blemished, like for instance with stretchmarks and where the incisions will not be that visible. It needs to be said that this is sometimes not possible.
Cosmetic Surgery Suits Everyone
Many people often give advice to other members of their species too easily. The other day I heard two women talking on the bus and one of them suggested the other one to have a Botox treatment on her face. An interesting fact is that the advisor looked less attractive than the advisee, although they were of similar age.
Counseling someone to look for physical and mental salvation in cosmetic surgery is a terribly wrong decision. We all have our unique personality, which is inevitably connected with our appearance, as well. Before making the final decision of having a cosmetic surgery, every person in question should visit a psychologist. They have to be prepared for what comes after and that maybe you will not like what you get.
