Cosmetic surgery has been performed across the world for many years and continues to grow. Plastic surgery helps those who want to fix deformities or achieve a specific look. Any surgical procedure is risky, and there are safety concerns that you should be mindful of. It is important to do a health background check and be aware of any diseases that run in your family. For example, a history of cardiovascular disease, lung disease, diabetes, or obesity can result in more complications during surgery. Smoking can also increase the risk of possible complexity. Surgery can still be performed, but it is important to choose the right doctor who is knowledgeable in informing the patient of the risks.
The surgeon should perform a series of medical evaluations and communicate to the clients of possible complications. He/she should inform the client of ways they can prevent these risks, before the surgery. Complications that can occur after surgery include bleeding, excessive swelling, and infection. It is very rare that these incidences will occur, but it is important to stay informed as a possible candidate for cosmetic surgery. Investing in an experienced board certified surgeon, like Dr. Motoki, will help minimize the risk and help make your experience worthwhile.
