Here are some potential risks of cosmetic surgeries:
- Complications can occur when the correct preoperative precautions aren’t taken. Make sure to inform your doctor of underlying medical conditions, and mention any complications with previous surgeries so that they can best determine how to customize your procedure and keep you safe.
- Anesthesia related issues are also common. Certain medications used during surgeries can cause an immediate drop in your blood pressure, which can lead to heart attacks or other complications.
- Pulmonary embolism, a sudden blockage in your pulmonary arteries, is another factor to be aware of. Because these vessels send blood to your lungs, it can be deadly if the procedure is performed improperly.
