How much do you know about Cosmetic Surgery?

1. True or False: Breast augmentation was the most requested reconstructive surgery in 2016.

Answer: True! According to a recent report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, board-certified plastic surgeons reported a total of 290,467 procedures in 2016. A close second was liposuction, and third was nose reshaping.

2. True or False: Breast implants increase your risk of getting breast cancer.

Answer: False. The Institute of Medicine (IOM) found evidence that breast implants do not cause breast cancer or the recurrence of breast cancer. However, it’s still essential to undergo routine screening for breast cancer — breast self-exams, mammograms and clinical breast exams — just as you would if you didn’t have breast implants.

5. True or False: Reconstructive surgery for men is on the rise.
