The Eleventh Lie

The Eleventh Lie + Columbus

by James D. McMahan, MD

I started with the “Ten biggest lies in plastic surgery,” but I now have to add #11.  It’s the ‘Laser Bra.’  This is primarily a hoax to lure patients into having breast lift surgery by making them believe that a laser will give them a longer lasting result.  There are two problems with this:  A. There is no evidence that the claim is true and, B. some surgeons don’t even use the laser or they use it for such a short period of time that it couldn’t make a difference even if it were effective.  Beware of gimmicks and exorbitant claims. If it sound too good to be true, it is.  As a general rule, if you see it on TV, do not believe it! 

The vast majority of plastic surgery products and procedures seen on so-caller ‘Expert Doctor” shows are nothing but paid advertisements.  Where are all of those ‘latest and greatest’ products from five years ago that were supposed to provide live-changing results?  Gone. All gone.  It was all hype; no substance and no results.
