A field in constant evolution that is part of the specialty of Plastic, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery and that still faces an extensive list of myths about technique and result.

A set of myths that, far from adequately informing the patient, provides unreliable data that can lead to feelings of oppression and insecurity in those people who, in a thoroughly thoughtful and voluntary way, have decided to submit to an aesthetic intervention for reasons personal What is the top 3 of those myths about plastic surgery that you must put in the bag of oblivion? Today we collect those that you should never consider.

First legend: Cosmetic surgery is only for rich people.

Although cosmetic surgery is not cheap, today it is already available to a large group of people. And is that in most clinics and cosmetic surgery hospitals are offered financing means to help a person to cover the cost of surgery or treatment chosen. Almost half of the people who are operated (46%) -and according to the testimony of people, we have personally attended- prefer to have doctors with proven and vast experience to save money, putting other cheaper means.

Second legend: Cosmetic surgery is noticeable.

It is clear that some patients are noted having undergone the scalpel. However, we can assure you that there is a vast majority that gets very natural results so that you would never suspect that cosmetic surgery has been performed.

Third legend: surgery is only for women.

Most women do make up every day that is as undeniable as most aesthetic surgeries performed are also for them. But the reality is that little by little more men are looking for aesthetic changes, especially facial aesthetic changes, looking for a more youthful appearance.

Fourth legend: women are more concerned with appearance.

Although women can be more concerned about our facial appearance, and therefore we use a wide range of products and creams to improve it (even if only in response to the media pressure to which we are subjected) are proven data- although it may seem strange- that the number of facial surgeries performed on men and women is practically equal.

Fifth legend: people who undergo cosmetic surgery are obsessed.

Many people mistakenly think that since cosmetic surgery is designed to change physical appearance, only people who are obsessed with its image submit to it. But this is not the case: according to a survey conducted by plastic surgery hospitals in Delhi, more than half of the people who responded to it said they had surgery to improve self-confidence, compared to 4% of people who said they underwent surgery aesthetics to look like a celebrity.

So, here you are five urban legends that -as you have seen- do not work. Have you heard of any other legend?
