What are some plastic surgery failures

Plastic Surgery: Desire & Reality

Breast operations and liposuction are the most common aesthetic operations in plastic surgery. Here we do away with the most common prejudices.

Plastic surgery often marks the end of a long path of suffering. If you are dissatisfied with your appearance, it not only scratches your self-confidence, it can even develop mental illness. Psychologists and patients know it: the psychological pressure that patients expose themselves to and feel exposed to from outside is enormous. Nevertheless, there are cases in which cosmetic surgery is not suitable for reaching the desired turning point in life. This can be due to certain unfavorable conditions, or it fails due to wrong ideas ...

When does liposuction make sense?

First you have to make yourself clear; Liposuction should by no means be thought of as a simple wellness treatment. Even if you sometimes get the impression from the media. Lie comfortably on a massage table, only clad in a white bath towel and quickly suck off the excess fat - NO! It really doesn't work that way! Liposuction is an operation that must take place in the operating room. Medically and hygienically, the same standards apply as for any operation.

Problem area after losing weight

Basically, liposuction is only an option if there are still problem areas after losing weight that you would like to adjust aesthetically. In other words, the stubborn spots that are left over after a change in diet, diet or regular sports workout.

The right skin texture

The most important requirement for successful liposuction is a suitable skin texture. If the skin is already very stretched or tense, a reputable doctor will no longer perform liposuction. Because after liposuction, the skin must be able to cling to the contours of the body again. Doctors speak of the skin's shrinkage capacity. It is also possible that the skin is overstretched, in which case the surgeon will suggest tightening the skin.

Breast Enlargement & Breast Reduction

Of all cosmetic surgeries worldwide, breast surgeries are the most common. Unsurprisingly, most of them are breast augmentations. According to an international extrapolation, around 1.5 million women opted for breast augmentation in 2015. The number of breast reductions was comparatively low (around 0.5 million). Whereby one also has to say that breast enlargements are purely aesthetic operations. For breast reductions, however, there are mostly medical reasons.

Breasts from the catalog?

Do you have a particular breast in mind - Pamela Anderson's breasts? Anyone who decides to have breast surgery can of course bring in their wishes regarding shape and size, etc. But a mail order business where you can choose your dream breast from the catalog is not a plastic surgery! The plastic surgery specialist always uses the anatomy to decide directly to the patient what options there are for each body type. Only after a thorough examination can the doctor decide whether and to what extent he can achieve the desired breast shape and size.

What's the Difference: Plastic Surgeon & Cosmetic Surgeon?

A useful fun fact at the end: In principle, any doctor who has completed a medical degree can call himself a cosmetic surgeon. Since the term “cosmetic surgeon” is not a protected term, any doctor can call himself that, regardless of whether he has sufficient qualifications in the field or not. The "plastic surgeon" only gets this designation after he has completed his specialist training in plastic surgery.
