What risks are there?
As with any type of surgical procedure, there are risks and complications associated with plastic surgery.
The degree of risk will depend on a number of factors and risks are personal to you. Your surgeon will discuss individual risks with you before you decide to have the procedure.
Some procedures can carry specific risks but general risks include infection, scarring and the failure of the repaired area of skin due to a restricted blood supply. These are usually rare and your surgeon will discuss any concerns you have with you.
