With today's technology, new techniques of plastic surgery are alleviating the need for general anesthesia and the dangers of plastic surgery associated with anesthetics.

Complications from plastic surgery are extremely rare in this day and age--however, anyone who is considering having this type of surgery done should educated themselves about the possible dangers of plastic surgery.

The dangers of plastic surgery can range from scarring to fatality (in the most extreme cases) and the effects of surgery can sometimes be both physically and psychologically traumatizing to patients. Complications do not occur on a regular basis, but it is important to be aware of the possible dangers of plastic surgery.

The dangers of plastic surgery will increase or decrease depending on the type of surgery performed and the individual's reaction to surgery and anesthesia.

One of the most common dangers of plastic surgery that people considering surgery should be aware of is scarring. Most plastic surgeons attempt to hide incision lines in places where they can't be seen, like under the crease of the breast in breast augmentation plastic surgery, or in the hairline in facial plastic surgery. Most surgeries will still result in permanent scarring, but the scarring is usually hidden from sight.

Some other dangers of plastic surgery are bleeding, infection, and blood clots. Close monitoring of the patient after surgery will allow these complications to be caught early on so they can be promptly treated. A high temperature is a sign of infection, and with the ease of temperature monitoring, it should be checked every few hours.

Nerve damage is another danger of plastic surgery that people considering plastic surgery must be aware of. Some patients can experience problems moving muscles in the area where the surgery was performed or have loss of feeling in the area that was operated on after plastic surgery. In most cases this is only temporary, and sensation should soon return.

The dangers of plastic surgery are directly related to the type of procedure and area on which it will be performed. Breast augmentation related dangers of plastic surgery include sensory damage around the operation site, discoloration of the skin, tissue necrosis, asymmetry, infection, formation of scar tissue, and allergic reactions to sedation.

On the other hand, the dangers of plastic surgery of the face can lead to noticeable tissue damage, unnatural looking features and premature aging.

It's not just the procedure that determines the dangers of plastic surgery involved, but the health of the individual.

You are more susceptible to the dangers of plastic surgery if you have preexisting health issues. If you are a smoker, a person with diabetes, have a heart condition, or have certain allergies you are more likely to experience complications that other people can avoid.

As with any other surgery, it is important to have blood tests and a physical to ensure that you are a good candidate for plastic surgery.

In addition, you should make sure to look into the procedure you are considering and learn about the dangers of plastic surgery involved so that you can be as prepared inside and out for your transformation.

Consult an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon for more information on the plastic surgery procedures that will help enhance your body to its full potential.
