Plastic Surgery: Myths and Mistakes to Avoid – Jammu Kashmir Latest News | Tourism

Dr Rahul Gorka
Everyone is intrigued by the term “plastic surgery”. People let their “train of thought” follow the trails laid by various life experiences and information, especially movies and television. As a by-product, there is a lot of misinformation and misunderstanding about this excellent surgical super-specialty. It is necessary to separate fact from fantasy in order to alleviate concern and inspire confidence in plastic surgery patients and the public.
Myth: Plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery are the same.
Bad. There is a significant difference. Plastic surgery encompasses both cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. Hair transplantation, rhinoplasty, liposuction, breast enhancement/reduction, otoplasty, oculoplasty, abdominoplasty and other procedures (surgical and non-surgical) to improve the aesthetic appearance of an otherwise normal human being. Reconstructive surgery includes all procedures performed to repair/rebuild damaged tissues such as in burns, trauma, cancer reconstruction, hand surgery, etc.
Mistake: Choosing the wrong unqualified person claiming to be a cosmetic surgeon/facial plastic surgeon/beauty specialist without the necessary degrees – M.Ch or DrNB in ​​plastic surgery.
How can you trust an unqualified person to treat your “body” if you hire a licensed mechanic to service your car? Always take your time and consider the qualifications of the plastic surgeon you are considering. To become a qualified plastic surgeon, one must complete a three-year M.Ch/DNB course in plastic surgery after obtaining the MBBS and MS (surgery) degrees.
Mistake: liposuction is only for weight loss
A plastic surgeon will usually advise a patient to lose weight before undergoing liposuction. This is to increase your muscle tone and therefore your chances of success of the operation. Liposuction is only used to shape the body. It is ineffective in the treatment of cellulite and abdominal obesity.
Myths: Plastic surgery is just for luxury
This is an error. Plastic surgeons enable people to live better, more joyful and productive lives by making them feel comfortable with themselves and their bodies. Your emotional and physical health is beneficial when your outward appearance represents who you really are.
Mistake: Thinking you can’t afford plastic surgery
Plastic surgery is not a privilege reserved for an elite, as evidenced by the large number of people who undertake it each year. Today, the range of alternatives available can suit people from various socio-economic backgrounds. Moreover, undergoing plastic surgery in one’s home country (Jammu & Kashmir) can save money on travel and other expenses while receiving the same level of safe and effective treatment.
Myth: Plastic surgery is only for women
The men catch up quickly. Botox, facelifts, fillers, rhinoplasty, gynecomastia liposuction, and hair transplantation are all popular procedures.
Mistake: expecting perfection
You and your plastic surgeon should agree in advance that your reasons for seeking plastic surgery are sound and your expectations are reasonable. After surgery, there may be scars, but there are advanced techniques to reduce or eliminate them. Expect a “subtle but effective transformation” that will give you a healthier and more confident outlook on life.
It is essential to understand what plastic surgery is and is not. Only then can you decide what your plastic surgery goals are and which plastic surgeon will help you achieve them.
