Middle-Aged Couple Hugging over Fence

There are a lot of myths circulating online about getting cosmetic surgery performed. Well, the Dallas team here at J. Hopkins Plastic Surgery is here to debunk them. Get settled, because we’re about to set the record straight when it comes to who these procedures are for and what type of surgeon you need for your desired procedure.

Myth #1 – Plastic Surgery is Just for Women

This is probably the number one myth Dr. Hopkins hears in the consultation room, and unfortunately, one that prevents many Dallas men from seeking out a consultation, to begin with. Plastic surgery isn’t gender-specific. In fact, there are a variety of surgical procedures that local men have Dr. Hopkins perform, including breast reduction for men, panniculectomies, tummy tucks, facelifts, and more!

Please don’t think that Dr. Hopkins’ practice is solely focused on breast augmentations and mommy makeovers. Dr. Hopkins is proud to offer local residents a wide variety of cosmetic surgery procedures, which can benefit both men and women alike.

Myth #2 – You Need a Female Plastic Surgeon to Perform a Breast Augmentation or Mommy Makeover

Here’s yet another gender-biased myth. There’s information circulating around the Internet that Dallas women need a female plastic surgeon to operate on their feminine figure. While Dr. Hopkins will tell you himself there are plenty of skilled female plastic surgeons available, his training and 20 years of experience performing over 6,000 plastic surgery procedures makes him an excellent plastic surgeon to perform your breast augmentation or mommy makeover procedure.

Through 2 decades of helping local women attain the figures they want, Dr. Hopkins has refined his interviewing skills to make consultations as comfortable and informative as possible so that he can put together the best, unique surgical plan for the patient in front of him. Because at the end of the day, the uniqueness of each surgical plan is what makes each cosmetic surgery he performs a success.

Myth #3 – Getting a Facelift is Going to Make You Look “Windblown”

If you believe this myth, it’s likely you’ve seen some before and after pictures of some bad facelifts. It’s a shame. Some plastic surgeons just don’t practice proper technique and restraint in performing this cosmetic surgery, resulting in outcomes that look far from natural.

With 2 decades of experience performing facelifts, Dr. Hopkins has the experience, technical skill, and artistic know-how to provide his male and female Dallas patients with facelifts that turn back the hands of time while providing natural-looking results. The goal of a facelift is always to make the patient look good for his or her age, and definitely not to make it obvious that he or she has had work done.

Knowledge is Power

Now that you know the truth behind some of the most common cosmetic surgery myths, we hope you feel more comfortable moving forward with your desired procedure and working with Dr. Hopkins. The next best step for you to take is to schedule a consultation with him so you two can mutually decide if your desired procedure is right for you.
