Plastic surgery has become a big part of our culture in Dubai. From celebrities in movies and magazines, to reality shows and documentaries, the public has never been more conscious of the different types of plastic surgeries available in the market.

With that in mind, Drs. Roberto and Maurizio Viel from London Centre for Aesthetic Surgery in Dubai have gathered some common misconceptions about plastic surgery and demystify them here for you.

#MYTH 01 – “It’s only about the looks”

While plastic surgery is for appearances, people do under estimate the effects of plastic surgery on a person’s overall well-being. If plastic surgery can help with self-esteem, it can help how a patient views diet, exercise and overall lifestyle. For example, patients who were previously too embarrassed to go to the gym because of fat folds might feel more motivated after body contouring.

 #MYTH 02 – “I can’t afford plastic surgery”

Nowadays, plastic surgery is no longer an option reserved for the wealthy. With so many advancements in technology, the number of less invasive treatments with lower costs has considerably grown. As well as the number of non-invasive treatments available today that don’t require going under the knife.

#MYTH 03 – “It’s only for women”

There has been a significant rise over the past years in the number of male patients seeking plastic surgeries in order to improve the way they look. Surgeries like penoplasty (penis enlargement), gynecomestia (male breast reduction) and liposuction have increased in popularity in the world and in Dubai between the male community.

#MYTH 04 – “The risks are too high”

As any procedure, plastic surgery does involve risk. However, as long as you have consulted a qualified plastic surgeon, such as Drs. Roberto and Maurizio Viel at London Centre for Aesthetic Surgery in Dubai, the risk of having a surgery-gone-wrong or any other complications are minimal to none.

#MYTH 05 – “You will have unpleasant scars”

Not every surgery’s scars can be seen these days. Some are placed in discreet places that cannot be seen by an untrained eye. Of course there are some major surgeries, like a “tummy tuck”, where scars are unavoidable but your surgeon should explain these to you carefully and clearly so you know what to expect.
