Trust .. Him or Her ... Mine Are Perfect1

When it comes to plastic surgery, many of us tend to be overzealous. At the first sight of a wrinkle or a cellulite pocket, we rush out to correct the problem faster than you can say "nip/tuck." Unfortunately, we often tend to be a little naive about how serious surgery really is. Click here for more.

Last year an estimated 11 million people underwent cosmetic plastic surgery, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgery.

While the overall number of surgical procedures edged up only 2% from the previous year, minimally invasive procedures such as Botox (4.1 million), chemical peel (1.1 million), laser hair removal (887,000), microdermabrasion (817,000), and hyaluronic acid fillers (778,000) skyrocketed.

But when it comes to cosmetic surgery, it's a buyer beware market, warns Perry, a clinical associate professor at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. Too many patients don't do their homework before signing up for appearance-altering procedures.

"The number one myth in cosmetic surgery is that plastic surgeons are miracle workers and that they can make anyone and everyone look like they're thirty," Perry tells LifeScript. "This is a myth perpetuated by Dr. 90210, Extreme Makeover and other TV shows. In many cases, [these shows illustrate] a less than completely honest approach to cosmetic surgery.

His advice to anyone considering cosmetic plastic surgery? Don't believe the hype.
