At the Cosmetic Surgical Center in Dallas we believe in educating our patients and dispelling the many myths that abound regarding plastic surgery.
Myth: Every surgeon who claims to be a plastic surgeon is a plastic surgeon.
Reality: Physicians with little or no training in plastic surgery often call themselves plastic surgeons. Before you trust your life and looks to anyone, make sure that you conduct extensive research to ensure the doctor is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
Myth: It is wise to shop for the lowest price.
Reality: Safety should be your number one priority in surgery. A state-of-the-art surgical setting, experienced anesthesiologists, and an experienced surgeon may cost more, but they can give you a safe experience and the results you want. A cheap deal may look good at first, but can cost you dearly in the end.
Myth: Plastic surgery leaves no scars.
Reality: Every surgery leaves scars. A skilled plastic surgeon will make incisions in strategic locations to minimize the visibility of scars.
