Is Plastic Surgery Safe?

The first questions many patients ask when considering a surgical procedure is this: “is the procedure safe?” That’s an important question, especially when it comes to plastic surgery procedures. In this article, we are going to discuss whether or not certain plastic surgery procedures are safe.

Surgical Procedure Safety

All surgical procedures carry a certain amount of risk. Since surgeons and teams are all human, there is always a risk of something going wrong. With the advancements in surgical technology, surgical procedures are certainly a lot safer than they were even 10-20 years ago, but there will always be at least some risk associated.

That being said, most common plastic surgery procedures are considered safe – they certainly don’t carry as much risk as open-heart surgery.

Taking the Appropriate Precautions

Though most plastic surgery procedures are generally considered safe, there are certain precautions you should take before going under the knife. Here are a few tips to help guide you:

  • Make sure you go to a reputable clinic / surgeon. Make sure your surgeon is properly credentialed. If they are board-certified, that’s even better!
  • Do your due diligence. Once you’ve found a clinic or surgeon, do some research. Check out their credentials, patient reviews, and the procedures they perform.
