Plastic surgery booyah, plastic surgery boom,boondoggle: The plastic surgeon will be the one who will be made a boondigger.
But there are some who are just so sure of their claim, they are taking the gamble.
Dr Chris Anderson, a consultant plastic surgeon and the former president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, told New Scientist that he had seen many of the claims about the procedure.
He said: “People are making these false claims, that the plastic surgeon can’t do it, that it is not a viable option for the people who want it.
It is a lot more than that.”
Dr Anderson said that while he had been aware of some of the rumours circulating about plastic surgery he had never heard anyone making any claims of the surgery not being feasible.
He added: “There’s this idea that it’s not going to work.
It’s a myth.
It doesn’t work.”
Mr Anderson also noted that a large proportion of the surgeons he has spoken to about the surgery are either not in the profession or are in a career where they would prefer not to work with the media.
The surgery boffin, according to Dr Anderson, is also not being done by plastic surgeons.
Dr Anderson added that if someone is not getting the surgery they want they need to seek out another surgeon who is willing to give them a better price and a better chance of success.
Dr Nick Farrar, president of UK Plastic Surgery, told the BBC: “We are the industry leading in terms of both number of surgeries performed in the UK and the quality of the surgeries performed, so we’re going to continue to do a lot of work to try and increase the supply of this surgery.”
“But if you are just trying to make a buck off something that is not going anywhere, then you need to look at the alternatives and make the right choice.”
Dr Farrart said that the NHS was making it easier for patients to access the procedures and also providing greater support for those who need them.
He continued: “The government is very clear that they are going to increase the numbers of plastic surgeons and that we will increase our number of plastic surgery patients, but we will also be working to increase support for patients who are going through a really difficult time.”
Dr John Williams, a surgeon and president of Plastic Surgery UK, told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme that there was a lot that the industry could do to support those who are struggling with plastic surgery.
He also said that more doctors were speaking out and that more surgeons would be willing to go on speaking tours to make the claims.
“It’s going to be hard to get them on stage and it’s going in the wrong direction,” Dr Williams said.
“The way I see it, there’s a lot people in this country who are really struggling with the costs of plastic surgeries and they need help.”
What are the main concerns about plastic surgeries?
There are three main reasons why some people may have doubts about whether or not they can have the surgery.
What are some of these concerns?
There is concern about:When people first become aware of the plastic surgery scam, it is usually because they have had a bad experience with the surgeon or a patient, says Dr Anderson.
“There are a lot [of] people who have had an experience with this that they have been really upset, they’ve been really worried about it,” he added.
“People have had bad experiences, some of them are very good people who are trying to do the right thing, but they’ve got problems with it.
They’ve had problems with their teeth falling out.
They had problems eating.
They’re very vulnerable.”
But it is also because the procedure has been performed with poor judgment, not because they are not competent, says Mr Farr.
Dr FARR said that it was important to remember that people who were given the plastic operation would still have the right to have it removed and that the surgery would be “fully reversible”.
“People will still be able to have their teeth put back in place,” he said.
“They will still have their face, their breasts, their tummy and their vagina back.
The surgeon will still get a job.”
What can be done about it?
The procedure is now widely available and there is a large body of literature about the treatment of plastic injuries.
Dr Anderson said he believed the main thing that had to be done was to educate patients.
“The first thing you have to do is educate the patient, because the most common misconception is that the procedure is easy,” he told New Screens.
“If you’re just getting the procedure done, and you don’t know anything about plastic, then I think that’s the first thing to do.”
But he added: “[I would say] first and foremost, we need to educate people about the risks of plastic. It
