Cosmetic plastic surgery ranks among the top surgical procedures performed in the medical field today. Although complications are rare and procedures are considered generally safe when performed by a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon, there are still existing risks.
How do we minimize the risks of cosmetic plastic surgery?
The following are some useful guidelines:
There are a
variety of post-operative complications and expected side effects in cosmetic
surgery procedures. Most of them are temporary and can be easily treated when
discovered early. Cosmetic surgery is not an exact science and the body does
not always react in predictable ways. Thus, while serious complications in
cosmetic plastic surgery are uncommon when performed by qualified and experienced
plastic surgeons, they do occur from time to time, even with the most careful
surgeons under the strictest conditions. Those with the least risk of complications
are patients who are relatively young, in excellent health, and who strictly
adhere to pre- and post-operative instructions.
