9 Facts About Cosmetic Surgery You Should Know

Cosmetic surgery is popular among Canadians because it helps us look our best which improves our self-esteem.

9-Facts About Cosmetic Surgery You Should Know

To help you understand the intricacies of cosmetic surgery, here are 9 facts you should know:

1. Plastic surgery doesn’t involve plastic

Cosmetic surgery is often referred to as plastic surgery but there’s no plastic involved. It comes from the Greek word plastikos which means to “mold”.

2. Men get surgery too

Most people assume that women are the only ones undergoing cosmetic enhancement. Yes, the majority of patients are women but the number of men undergoing plastic surgery is increasing every year.

3. WW2 marked a turning point in cosmetic surgery

Many injured soldiers returning from the war required plastic surgery and doctors had to improvise leading to innovations in the techniques and tools used still to this day.

4. The top 5

The most popular cosmetic procedures are breast augmentation, liposuction, rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery and tummy tuck.

5. You can have more than one procedure at once

Most cosmetic surgeons can safely perform multiple surgeries at the same time. For example, doctors offer “Mommy Makeover” packages that include tummy tuck, breast lift and liposuction.

6. Not all cosmetic procedures are invasive

There are many cosmetic enhancements you can have that don’t require anesthesia or surgical intervention such as Botox, chemical peel, laser hair removal, microdermabrasion, coolsculpting and soft tissue fillers.

7. Middle-aged people want to look younger

Men and women between the ages of 40-54 make up the majority of surgery patients. This has a lot to do with the fact that in our forties we begin to show the signs of aging on our faces more than we do in our twenties and thirties.

8. Big butts are beautiful

Thanks to the Kardashians and other celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, plump bottoms are in. Butt augmentations are quickly becoming a popular cosmetic surgery for North Americans along with lower body lifts.

9. There is a such thing as too much surgery

It’s fine to do a few tweaks here and there or remove stubborn body fat that doesn’t respond to exercise and dieting, but your cosmetic surgeon will stop treatments if you overdo it. No board-certified surgeon is going to give you the okay for a sixth nose job or increase your breast size beyond what your frame can support.
