What are the risks of plastic surgery?

Isn't it worth it if it makes you skinnier in the end?


Answer by  MedStudent01 (1131)

Any type of surgery has risks, and it isn't necessarily worth it in the end if you're skinnier. Common types of risks include infection, complications during surgery that require a prolonged stay, possible damage from intubation or anesthesia, and death. Even if you are skinnier, if you don't change your diet you'll regain the weight and look worse.

Many risks, depending on what you're getting done. You want to be skinnier,I don't suggest surgery for that. It's easier and cheaper to diet and exercise. I recommend plastic surgery only in life or death situations. For example, if your weight is exceptionally high and you're experienceing heart trouble, mobility issues and other heatlh dangers, do the surgery.

The risks of plastic surgery include bleeding, infection, and scaring. The risk of stroke or heart attack are increased in people at risk for those events.

All surgeries carry a certain risk and plastic surgery is no different. You have the risk of being put under and the risk is there for a severe infection. Your doctor can advise you on all risks.
