Three Misconceptions About Plastic Surgery

With the rise of reality TV, especially of shows like “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” and “Real Housewives of…,” plastic surgery has leapt to the eye of the general public like never before. Procedures and treatments have become household words. But there is a lot of misconception out there, and we think it’s time to set some things straight.

  1. It’s All Fake
    While it’s true that implants are a part of plastic surgery, not all plastic or cosmetic surgeons use them for treatments. In fact, surgeons who specialize in the face, and neck rarely use implants. Cosmetic surgery can be done using the patient’s own skin and tissues!
  2. The Look of Plastic Surgery is Unnatural
    Not every plastics treatment is intended to defy aging or even create a new face. Plastic Surgeons throughout the world help patients heal from trauma and injuries such as burns, loss of limbs, repair after cancer treatment, and many, many other therapeutic procedures that allow patients to return to their normal, natural lives. In fact the most rewarding cases that Dr. Stong has treated involves the repair of cleft lips and palates, restoring faces heavily damaged by abuse, or wounded in military action.
  3. Plastic Surgery Makes Everyone Look the Same
    Throughout the world, cultures have different standards of beauty. But even within those cultures reside individuals with distinct needs and tastes. A surgeon worth his salt will create their surgical plan carefully to keep each patient’s look unique.

At Kalos Plastic Surgery in Atlanta, we listen carefully to our patients to design the best treatment plan for each patient. Schedule your consultation today!
