Why it’s need to be done
Because plastic surgery can bring lasting and dramatic changes to the outside appearance, it is important to understand how these changes may affect us on the inside. Many physical characteristics can be successfully changed through cosmetic surgery, while others cannot. Good patients for cosmetic surgery:
Have realistic expectations about how the surgery will affect them personally and professionally.
Understand the medical risks, effects during healing, what changes in lifestyle may accompany the recovery period, and moreover the expenses involved.
Discussed their expectations for surgery with their surgeon and resolved any query.
Made any chronic medical conditions under control.
Have no history of smoking or nicotine products for 4-6 weeks before and after surgery.
Have had a stable body-weight for six months to one year.
All surgeries, including plastic surgery, carry risk. Candidates with a history of cardiovascular disease, lung disease, diabetes or obesity have a higher risk of developing complications, includes pneumonia, stroke, heart attack or blood clots in the legs or lungs. Likely smoking increases risks and interferes with healing.
Possible complications for any surgical procedure include:
Complications related to anaesthesia, such as pneumonia, blood clots and, rarely, death
Infection at the incision site, which may cause scarring and require additional surgery
May build-up fluid under the skin
bleeding which require a transfusion, or mild bleeding, which may require another surgical procedure
Obvious scarring which occurs when healing skin separates from the healthy one and must be removed surgically
Numbness and tingling from nerve damage and it may worsen to be permanent
