The Risks In A Plastic Surgery Gone Wrong

Jan 16, 2008
Online data about plastic surgery can be confusing sometimes because there are people who adamantly believe in the safety of plastic surgery. Others however simply enjoy splashing pages with details of plastic surgery gone wrong. Is the idea of plastic surgery gone wrong really fact or fiction?

Plastic Surgery

There are some cases where people have to undergo reconstructive surgery to save their lives and their body's functions. Even such a critical procedure however requires patient consent. Since cosmetic surgery is not a matter of life and death, it is generally more elective than reconstructive surgery and has been the subject of a lot of plastic surgery gone wrong sites. Perhaps more and more people are wondering why others volunteer to put their bodies in danger.

Practitioners of plastic surgery would, of course, tell you that modern plastic surgery has perfected the procedure. Numerous capable practitioners really do great jobs that generally satisfy patients. It is still a fact however that plastic surgery gone wrong pictures still circulate online. It is also a fact that there are actually law firms that specialize in bad plastic surgery. What does this tell you? If some lawyers see this as a lucrative area to set their sights on then plastic surgery gone wrong is still very much a reality. The figures say too that one in four people have had some bad surgical reaction or experience.

What Can Go Wrong

Let's give plastic surgery supporters the benefit of the doubt. Granting that plastic surgery gone wrong episodes are rare and isolated, you would still be most unfortunate if you became the rare recipient of incorrect procedures.

Errors in plastic surgery procedures can cause serious damage. In minor cases you may just have to bear prolonged bruising or swelling. More serious problems however can also happen which may just include some of the following:

- Leakage or hardening of implants - Reactions to medicine or anesthesia - Slippage of implants - Drooping, disproportionate or asymmetrical breasts - Extensive scarring and possibly disfigurement - Too much skin removed - Death - Nerve, tissue, muscle or organ damage

What Happens After

Higher medical bills and more work absences are just some of the consequences of surgery gone wrong. You might also have to run after the doctor responsible for your plastic surgery gone wrong episode and the legal battle could be inconvenient, costly and long. The worst thing that could happen is that you might end up looking worse than before the surgery and your new look could be permanent. Although the physical pain may eventually diminish, the emotional pain can drag on for a long time.

What You Can Do

Try natural methods before going into plastic surgery. Try the natural way of trying to get a better appearance and resort only to surgery if all else fails.

Trust only a certified plastic surgeon. A certification is the best way to ensure that your doctor has had the necessary number of years of training in plastic surgery and has passed the required exams.
