Debunking Common Misconceptions About Plastic Surgery

Many people tend to have adverse reactions to finding out when people have received plastic
surgery. Additionally, with the release of the television show ​Botched​, cosmetic surgery has gotten
a bad rap. While there can be some extreme cases, surgery generally has many
misconceptions surrounding it. Here are a few of the most common misconceptions about
plastic surgery – debunked!

1. It looks fake and unnatural.

Unless you aspire to be a​ living Barbie or Ken doll​, plastic surgery is not going to make you look
inhuman. This is one of the biggest misconceptions about cosmetic surgery; the main objectives of
plastic surgery are to enhance your natural appearance and boost your self-confidence.
Whether you’ve sustained an injury, were born with a medical condition, or have a part of
yourself that you’d like to enhance, plastic surgery can give you a more positive self-image and
improve your quality of life.

2. Any surgeon can give you the results you want.

Unlike the other misconceptions, this one can actually be incredibly dangerous. Not all surgeons
are created equal! If the surgeon you’re considering is not board-certified, steer clear. Believe it
or not, the government ​does not require plastic surgeons to be trained for the procedures they
offer​. In some cases, general surgeons will hop on the bandwagon of plastic surgery in order to
try and make more money. Though they may be talented, you’re better off safe than sorry. Dr.
Chadwell has not one, but ​two board certifications​, and he is well-qualified to work with you for
any of your facial plastic surgery needs.

3. Plastic surgery breaks the bank.

Though it can vary between procedures, cosmetic surgery is likely not as expensive as you’re
expecting it to be. The price definitely depends on the complexity of the procedure, but plastic
surgery is much more accessible than one might assume. If finances are going to be a
challenge, Chadwell Facial Plastics is glad to work with you financially with the goal of improving your quality of life.
