Cosmetic Surgery RisksAny surgery has some risks. This is why it is extremely important to carefully select a reputable board certified plastic surgeon before you decide to go ahead with cosmetic surgery. Dr Sproule operates at a private and fully accredited located adjacent to Scarborough general Hospital. Below is a list of possible cosmetic surgery complications. Again it is important to note that the possibility of occurrence of these cosmetic surgery complications is dramatically minimized when performed by a plastic surgeon at an accredited surgical facility.
Internal bleeding:Any type of surgery may result in bleeding in the operated area. This may be due to a temporary increase in blood pressure such as occurs due to coughing. It could also occur from the effects of medication such as aspirin (refer to list of medications that contain aspirin). Internal bleeding is usually manifested by acute swelling of the area, discoloration of the skin, pain and a feeling of tension.
If the accumulation of blood is a small one, your surgeon might decide to allow it to be absorbed by itself. However, if it is large, he may drain it.
