What are the complications of cosmetic surgery?

Cosmetic surgery is similar to any other type of surgery in that it comes with a very small amount of risk. It has the same risks that all surgery has which include infection, bleeding and scarring. There are also risks involved with anaesthesia.

Anaesthesia is safe but in a few rare cases there can be complications. If a patient is overweight, suffering from heart disease, high blood pressure or some other chronic disease then this can cause problems. If you have an allergy or have experienced problems with surgery before then it is very important that you mention this before your procedure.

Another risk and one that has been reported in the media is where surgery has been undertaken by an inexperienced or unlicensed surgeon. If this happens then the results can be life threatening. This is why it is important to find a good, reputable surgeon.
