Plastic surgery has a lot of benefits.
It can make you look younger and healthier and less bloated, even when you’re still wearing your plastic surgeon’s scrubs.
But there’s a downside.
We know it can lead to the development of conditions like osteoarthritis and obesity, and it’s linked to the risk of developing cancer.
The problem is that there’s no single cause of these diseases.
So how do you tell the difference between the risks and the benefits of surgery?
Here are five facts you might have missed about plastic surgeries.
Plastic surgery doesn’t cause cancer It’s easy to see why many people want to do it: Plastic surgery is a great way to look younger, healthier and more youthful, and if you can’t make it to the gym, or have a long commute, the result can be even better.
Plastic surgeons believe the best treatment for the most common plastic problem is to get a new one.
“If we could just fix one thing that’s broken, that would be one of the things we would try to fix,” says Dr Mark Raine, director of cosmetic surgery at the University of Sydney.
He tells the ABC’s 7.30 program the plastic surgeon at his practice, Dr Andrew Lee, has made a point of helping patients who want to try plastic surgery to avoid certain conditions.
But it’s not the only reason.
It’s also not the one you think it is.
“It’s not that plastic surgery causes cancer,” Dr Lee says.
“The other thing is that you get a scar.
You get a small amount of tissue that’s going to look like a scar.”
It’s the same with other body parts, like the eyes, that can cause a scar if you get too many plastic surgeries, or surgery to remove them.
It may not look like it, but you’re getting something else, and that’s where it gets tricky.
Plastic surgeon Dr Andrew Lees says the best way to tell if a plastic surgery has any potential for causing cancer is to look at the results of a genetic test called a microsatellite locus.
This is a genetic marker that helps people to predict how many times a particular gene or region can be switched on or off in the body.
Dr Lee has had some patients with cancer of the eyes come to him with microsatellites, which can be very useful.
“But that’s not necessarily a cancer-causing marker,” Dr Lees explains.
“There’s other markers that can tell you.”
There’s a big difference between plastic surgery and facial reconstruction There are many different types of plastic surgery, but some are done for cosmetic purposes, while others are done to repair damaged tissue.
“What we have to be really careful of is not doing surgery on too many parts of the body at once,” says the surgeon at the Sydney Plastic Surgery Centre, Dr Lee.
“We’ve had patients say, ‘I can’t take the facial reconstruction because I’m not in the best shape, I’m in the worst shape.
So what you can try is, what do you want to look as if you have a facial reconstruction?” “
And if you’re not in a good shape, there’s not a lot you can do about it.”

“Dr Lee tells 7.
Dr Andrew Raine says he and his colleagues are trying to find out which body parts are best suited to a facial transformation, to help people avoid getting the wrong treatment.
So, if someone is in their early 30s and they’ve had some plastic surgery done, their risk of getting breast cancer is lower than someone in their late 40s or early 50s. “
Most of our plastic surgeons work in the age range of 40 to 50,” he says.

But Dr Lee also says that there is an important distinction to be drawn between plastic surgeons who are treating people who are overweight and obese, and those who are dealing with people with anorexia nervosa or bulimia nervosa.
“When you have people who have this, they’re not a big problem, because they’re healthy,” he explains.
But “if you’re dealing with someone who’s bulimic, and they’re trying to look healthy, and you see that they’re having to get plastic surgery on the wrong parts of their body, that’s a different thing.”
Dr Lee and his team have developed a technique to measure how many microsomes they’re getting.
It looks at the volume of the tissue, and the percentage of cells that have been damaged.
“In the case of bulimics, the volume is actually a lot higher than it should be, so that tells us we’ve got a lot in there, which is why
