Choosing to move forward with plastic surgery is one of the most important decisions that you can make. Whether you’ve been wanting to change a certain feature, or you are looking to restore a more youthful appearance, it helps knowing that you have options for safely and successfully bringing your goals to life! Our patients opt for plastic surgery to help them build their most confident lives. However, often fears or misconceptions can get in the way of making clear, informed choices about your care.
Here we will discuss some of the most common misconceptions about plastic surgery!
Results will look unnatural.
The key to avoiding an exaggerated or overcorrected appearance after surgery is to move forward with an experienced and qualified plastic surgeon. At Synergy Plastic Surgery, our experienced plastic surgeons are board certified to utilize modern and advanced techniques and technology to produce natural and classic beauty. The results are a brighter, more refreshed version of yourself – not someone you don’t recognize in the mirror!
For example, outdated techniques used for facelift surgery often relied heavily on the stretching and tightening of the skin to eliminate wrinkles, however it also created an unnatural, “windblown” appearance. Today’s methods focus more on deeper structural changes that improve the position and quality of facial muscles for a more comprehensive, long-lasting result. This approach, coupled with very discreet scars that can usually be hidden within the hairline, make the results of today’s facelift surgery extremely subtle and quite natural-looking. You won’t be completely transformed — you’ll simply look like a younger version of yourself.

Surgery and recovery will be painful.
As previously mentioned, there have been numerous technological advances in plastic surgery, and pain management is included! At Synergy Plastic Surgery, our medical staff ensure that you have everything you need and are properly informed prior to surgery to ensure a more comfortable experience. While your comfort, safety, and pain management is our top priority, it is important to note that some amount of discomfort is unavoidable while your body heals from an invasive procedure. However, rest assured that our board-certified surgeons and medical staff can always provide several ways to minimize discomfort and accelerate recovery.
Too much time off is needed for recovery.
With our busy schedules, it may be difficult to take time off from the hectic demands that school to work require from us. However, as previously mentioned, technological advances utilized by our board certified plastic surgeons, as well surgical practices and pain management result in less downtime after surgery! Technology such as the Keller Funnel, guarantees less downtime after surgery. Furthermore, our skilled and experienced surgeons utilize modern methods to produce beautiful, natural results with less scarring and recovery time. Depending on their unique procedure and anatomy, some patients can expect to resume normal activity in as little as one week, or a few weeks at most after surgery. Furthermore, our medical staff offers a wide variety of non-invasive treatments with little to no downtime.
Plastic surgery can only benefit women.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the number of both invasive and non-invasive cosmetic procedures performed on men rose by 37% between the year 2000 and 2020. It is evident that the demand for plastic surgery for men is steadily increasing, and a wide range of treatments are available to men including abdominoplasty, Botox, gynecomastia, and a variety of cosmetic procedures including rhinoplasty.
