4 Hard Plastic Surgery Truths You Should Know

Plastic surgery is increasing in popularity by leaps and bounds with each passing year. In the year 2018, there were more than 1.8 million of such surgeries in the US alone. The constant trend of body perfection seems to catching up at a jet speed. Are you too on plans to go for plastic or cosmetic surgery? Well, before you go ahead, here are some necessary truths you should know about the surgery.

Don’t expect overnight results

No plastic surgeon, including the most seasoned ones, can guarantee you overnight results. It’s simply because such super fast results are not possible with plastic surgery. For example, if you take to breast augmentation or nose job, you will need to wait for at least couple of weeks for visible results. Put simply, you must be patient enough to wait for six months to experience the full results.

Restrictions on normal activities post surgery

Plastic surgery is a complex process and there are some post-operative restrictions that every patient should follow. In fact, your doctor will prevent you from resuming a set of normal activities after the surgery- for a certain period of time. For example, if you go for breast augmentation, you should refrain from heavy-lifting for 2-3 weeks.

You may need a touch-up

Plastic or cosmetic surgery is not a one-time affair in several cases. You may have to go for a touch-up again. For example, breast implants will last you for 10-15 years maximum. So, after that shelf-life is over, you will have to head for a re-do again. It will be better to get the touch-up done from the same doctor who had performed your previous surgery.

Emotional stress is not uncommon

Plastic surgery can lead one to emotional stress and depression. It’s especially the case when a cosmetic surgery fails to produce desired results- and that’s not uncommon.
