Common Cosmetic Surgery Myths

The word Myths is spelled out with wooden blocks on a white table with a small green plant in the backgroundPlastic surgery in some form has been performed for hundreds of years. Given its extensive history, it’s no surprise that a bevy of myths surround this field of medicine. Experienced and dedicated plastic surgeons like Dr. Jonathan Fugo are here to dispel these rumors and provide you with the clear, accurate information you deserve.

While there is no shortage of myths to debunk, here are a few of the most common:

Myth: Facelifts create a windswept, pulled look. 

Facelift techniques have come a long way over the years. While older surgical methods, based on antiquated understanding of facial aging, involved the simplistic lifting and pulling of the skin and underlying soft tissues, today’s techniques include adding conservative, appropriate volume to areas of lost volume, BEFORE performing any soft tissue repositioning, while sometimes shortening the deep, structural layers beneath the skin. The result is natural-looking rejuvenation that maintains the expressiveness of your face.

Myth: Lip augmentation creates “duck lips.” 

Lip augmentation is tailored individually, for a naturally full look. While some people want a more substantial, full pout, others want a more subtle increase in volume and shape. The key is to discuss your goals with Dr. Fugo. Together you can create the effect you want to see.

Myth: People can always tell if you had your breasts enhanced. 

Like all plastic surgery, breast surgery is customized to your goals. If you want a subtle breast augmentation, reduction, or lift, Dr. Fugo can provide those results. Most women want natural-looking results, but it’s also possible to create round, large breasts that may look quite a bit different from your natural breasts. Once again, it’s all about choosing the implant features that will create the results you want.

It’s easy to be led astray as you search for answers. Rely on Dr. Fugo, like so many others have, to provide the answers you deserve.
