Dr. Alavi Responds to Common Plastic Surgery Myths
Date:12/31/2012

San Diego, California (PRWEB) December 31, 2012

Urban legends and myths are a common part of the fabric of popular culture, but those pertaining to medical procedures can often generate false perceptions, leading patients to experience unnecessary doubt. A recent article from Emax Health dispels some of the common medical myths that surround the popular practice of plastic surgery. It notes that while many may criticize this field of medicine, most cosmetic procedures are safe if the patient takes proper steps to find the right doctor. Dr. Alavi, a trusted plastic surgeon in Southern California, adds more truth to this subject.

As the Head Cosmetic Surgeon of the Center for Cosmetic Surgery in San Diego, California, Sassan Alavi, M.D., F.A.A.C.S. has had a great deal of experience with plastic surgery options. Dr. Alavi notes that there are many high-quality procedures that prospective patients can look into without fear of common myths. He explains, “There are many myths about plastic surgery, but most only make good party conversation.”

In the article, Tracy M. Pfeiffer, M.D., M.S. holds a similar sentiment about these misinformed rumors, by revealing that cosmetic work is not just an option for the rich and famous. Pfieffer states, “Like with any other lifestyle choice, the average person may have to save and budget for it, but it’s within reach. Most of my patients are not extremely wealthy. Rather, they are everyday Americans such as teachers, lawyers, real estate agents, retired persons, etc. that come from every social strata and ethnic background.”

Dr. Alavi agrees that myths regarding plastic surgery costs are important to dispel, as these options are widely accessible and affordable with the right financial plan. In addition to costs, Dr. Alavi notes that the article’s mention of safety within plastic surgery is one of the most important issues to address when it comes to urban legends concerning this field of medicine. Shining light on some of these myths, Dr. Alavi explains, “Breast implants that are part of breast augmentation procedures do not explode in airplanes, as many believe. Face lifts will not stop the aging process, and Botox is not going to poison a patient’s body. In addition, it is important to address the expectations of plastic surgery. For example, liposuction procedures are not intended purely for simple weight reduction, but are instead an option meant to optimize a patient’s figure.”

While it is important for patients not to further credit these popular myths regarding plastic surgery, Dr. Alavi urges individuals to take time to make the decision to pursue a cosmetic procedure. He explains that the best way to receive answers is to consult certified materials and have open communication with a trusted doctor.
