The Risks of Plastic Surgery: What Are You Ready to Sacrifice?

Sunday, 13 March 2011

risks plastic surgeryAt all times, the best minds entertained the idea of preserving the beauty and youth of human body, and there are many records of bold attempts to translate this idea into reality, from scientifically consistent methods to pure magic and the search for the legendary philosopher's stone. Finally, in the twentieth century, we witnessed the inception of plastic surgery, which can be regarded as a scientific equivalent of the philosopher's stone, and a huge leap in the field of cosmetology and aesthetic medicine. However, there is a huge fly in this perfect ointment.

Plastic surgery: a Game of Chance?

Many plastic surgeons' patients believe that any change of appearance, however slight and insubstantial, will improve their lives dramatically. However, these optimistic expectations are not always fulfilled. One major risk of plastic surgery is that the results are never guaranteed. A doctor can speculate how the surgery will make the patient look after swelling and bruising subside, but the result is often different than what the patient planned. For example, a facelift might leave the patient feeling as though her skin looks too artificial, a nose job might leave the nose crooked, and breast implants might be larger or smaller than anticipated. This often results in further surgeries to fix the problem, resulting in wasted money and more exposure to other risks.

Moreover, beside thwarted expectations, there is one more important consideration to keep in mind - plastic surgery is not for everybody, as there are contraindications to aesthetic correction procedure. In addition, almost every plastic correction procedure involves some post-surgery treatment or rehabilitation, which is essential for obtaining the expected result and avoiding complications. 

Risks and Complications Associated with Specific Procedures

Cosmetic breast augmentation surgery enlarges small-breasted women, lifts sagging breast after weight loss or childbirth or reconstructs breast for women who've undergone mastectomies for breast cancer. Like any surgical procedure, you face the possibility of risks and complications after getting breast surgery. Infections around the surgical site are possible complications from breast surgery. Staphylococcus bacterial infections often develop four to six weeks after breast surgery. Staph bacteria live harmlessly on the skins surface but cause infection when skin when skin is broken or punctured. The infection appears at the incision site of breast surgery recipients. To prevent staph infections, surgeons scrub skin with a disinfectant before piercing skin and provide instructions on cleaning your wounds, suggesting antibacterial soaps for you to use. If antibiotics, topical ointment and noninvasive treatments don't get rid of the infection, surgeons remove implants for a few months and prescribe new antibiotics. You undergo breast surgery once the infection clears up to put in new implants.

Blood clots are common problem with any surgical procedure including cosmetic surgery. Blood clots occur when you leave part of your body immobile for a long period of time, such as when recouping from your surgery. Once the area has been immobile for too long, blood begins to pool. The pooling then turns into a clot. As long as the clot breaks up slowly there is no problem. However, if the full clot dislodges itself, it can travel through the entire body until it reaches the heart or brain causing a heart attack or stroke.

Temporary numbness is common at the site of any surgical incision. With regard to most types of plastic surgery, permanent numbness is rare. However, after any type of breast surgery, permanent numbness is much more of a concern.

Some tissue death, or necrosis, is expected after any surgical procedure. However, the amount of necrosis can increase dramatically if you are a smoker. Smoking decreases the amount of blood that is carried to tissues near the surgical site, which can lead to more necrosis during surgery.

An inevitable part of making holes and cuts in the skin is that they leave scars behind, an ironic fact for a type of surgery meant to promote beauty. Surgeons try to hide scars by performing surgery laparoscopically (through a small incision in the skin) to limit how noticeable the scar will be. Still, despite surgeons' best efforts, many procedures such as breast implantation and reduction can leave scars that are noticeable when viewed from a certain angle.

Abdominal liposuction is a type of cosmetic surgery to remove excess fat from the abdomen. Liposuction is a serious surgery that requires local or general anesthesia and a significant recovery time. The side effects of abdominal liposuction depend on overall health, the technique used and the amount of fat removed.

Bruising of the skin of the abdomen, especially around the incision sites, is a common side effect of abdominal liposuction and usually resolves in 5 to 10 days. Liposuction techniques include flushing the body with large amounts of fluid, some of which may be retained and cause swelling. Numbness and tingling of the skin and tissues of the abdomen is common after liposuction and may persist for several weeks after surgery. Abdominal liposuction may result in pain in the muscles and organs of the abdomen and may be worse at the sites of the incisions. The skin on the abdomen may take on a scarred, wrinkled or saggy appearance after abdominal liposuction and additional surgery may be required to remove excess skin. Bacterial infections of the skin or internal organs can be caused by bacterial contamination of the surgical instruments or of the incisions after surgery. Internal bleeding or bleeding from the wound sites can be caused by blood vessels or internal organs being nicked by a surgical instrument or by loosening of the stitches or staples closing the incisions.

Plastic surgery is becoming increasingly common as procedures that were once meant to help those with deformities and other skin damage are adapted for other purposes. While technically, plastic surgery refers to surgery dealing with natural problems or damage, the term has become synonymous with cosmetic surgery and vanity surgeries such as nose jobs, facelifts, lip alterations and breast alterations. In either form, plastic surgery carries significant risks of serious side effects.
