Unless you get yourself a top-rated, board certified, experienced, plastic surgeon who can perfect your surgery while making you look the best you can be without anyone knowing you actually had surgery, you might spare yourself from a terrible case of cosmetic surgery gone wrong. When performed well, with an eye for beauty and with professional aesthetics, breast enhancement surgery can be a beautiful thing. Unfortunately, bad cosmetic surgery is a lot more prevalent than you might think.
In fact, successful cosmetic surgery results are the exception not the rule. So if you are seriously considering plastic surgery, please beware of the possible complications.
Now, before you start your search for physicians, you might want to know exactly what can happen so you are not a victim of cosmetic surgery gone wrong. Here are a few tell tale signs you need be aware of in general.
Bad Face Lifts
Probably the most common case of bad plastic surgery is from a facelift procedure. You see, in this procedure the plastic surgeon pulls the excess skin horizontally from the face towards the ear usually more than he or she does vertically. More often than not, this creates the effect of the skin looking tighter than normal at the points of attachment, namely the ears and the nose area or in the middle area of the face. This can often lead to what most people call the “windblown” effect. I think you get the idea, so I won’t bore you with the details. The worst part of this kind of a “cosmetic surgery gone wrong” is that as time goes on, the skin between the said points of attachments may sag, appearing weirder and weirder as you get older.
Another issue with facelifts is that sometimes plastic surgeons may leave obvious surgical scars, especially on the ears, making it all the more obvious that one had undergone a cosmetic surgery gone wrong. It is for this reason that sometimes patients end up hanging their hair down all the time after surgery, and may never be able to muster up the courage to pull their hair up in a ponytail or any brushed-up hairdo for that matter.
Cosmetic Surgery Gone Wrong (Addiction)
Any cosmetic surgery that is repeated too many times almost always ends up as a cosmetic surgery gone wrong. These are done by people who were not satisfied with their previous surgery results and end up spending thousands of dollars on revision surgeries in the hopes of achieving the best possible results. Some celebrities are poster children to this phenomenon and end up having very strange and unnaturally shaped noses (Michael Jackson was a famous example of this.) These people end up being addicted to cosmetic surgeries, and it becomes a vicious cycle for them. Instead of looking and feeling great, some may suffer from inevitable depression and regret for what they have done. These are only some of the many tragic cases of cosmetic surgery gone wrong.
Then there is the more famous cosmetic non-surgical procedure – Botox. This is probably the most popular procedure especially among celebrities in Hollywood. When done right, Botox is a very effective method for reducing fine lines and wrinkles on the face as well as on then neck. Before a Botox procedure, the physician examines a patient’s ability to move the facial muscles especially the muscles controlling the brow movement before injecting the Botox into the patient’s face. When the doctor fails to do this and injects the Botox into the wrong facial muscle, voila! you have cosmetic surgery gone wrong. Technically, of course, Botox is a non-surgical procedure. The patient will end up looking shocked all the time, which might appear a bit scary and weird for many people. The great thing though is that this “cosmetic surgery gone wrong” can easily be reversed through another Botox injection, as long as it is done in the correct muscle.
Having discussed a few examples of cosmetic surgery gone wrong, you may now proceed with caution and for God’s sake, do your research before hand! In order for you to prevent this “cosmetic surgery gone wrong” phenomenon, this “perfect doctor” search should your top priority. I know the word perfect may sound a bit too rigid, but trust me, it is exactly what you will need to do. No more mister nice guy (or girl) I say, and do your best in finding the best plastic surgeon available, who has the experience as well as the expertise in performing these procedures. You also need to look for someone who understands that beauty also means looking as natural as you can be. You do not want to end up like that Cat woman, now would you?
You might also spare yourself from unnecessary additional costs from revision surgeries should you find yourself not satisfied with the performance of the two-star doctor you just hired. Take this advice; it’s absolutely free of charge. By then, you can say goodbye to cosmetic surgery gone wrong, and say hello to a new and beautiful you!
