Negative Side Effects of Plastic Surgery

{YBA} When people think about having plastic surgery procedures, they think about how beautiful they will look once they have healed. They anticipate how much better their life will be when they have finally had the rhinoplasty or breast augmentation that they had been dreaming about, but did you know that many cosmetic surgeries have “undesirable outcomes?”

An undesirable outcome in plastic surgery is when something goes wrong, and your results are not perfect. Perhaps too much collagen was used and the look is unnatural. Since every body is different, cosmetic surgery is simply not an exact science. 40% of all rhinoplasty surgeries are corrective surgical procedures that are needed to fix the undesirable outcome.

Reconstructive plastic surgery is mainly performed in the case of severe burns, injuries, congenital and developmental abnormalities of organs, infections or diseases and for cancer or tumor removal. The history of plastic surgery, especially for reconstructive purposes, dates back to 2000 BC, India. Today, we have witnessed an increase in the popularity of plastic surgery, mainly for cosmetic purposes. No doubt plastic surgery can effectively reshape the body parts to give you a beautiful and young look, free of wrinkles and scars and thereby boost your morale. However, several bad or negative effects may also be associated with the process, which can range from financial to physical and psychological effects.

Negative Side Effects of Plastic Surgery

  • Plastic surgery is a very expensive method, which involves skin grafting. It can put tremendous financial pressure on you and your family. While accessing the cost of plastic surgery, people often tend to take into account the cost of the surgery only, and completely overlook the unexpected cost that can arise from postoperative complications. Individuals also forget to consider the cost of postoperative medications, which can’t be avoided, as it can result in further complications. In all, plastic surgery is a costly and complicated affair and considerable care and precautions need to be followed after this surgery.
  • Plastic surgery involves several surgical risks like pain, infections, allergic reactions, nausea and vomiting, which are commonly associated with any kind of surgery. In addition to these, drug reaction, implant rejection, pigmentation, blood clots, skin necrosis and nerve damage on the particular area are some of common bad effects of plastic surgery that may give rise to many complications. The process may produce additional risks for smokers, as they are more likely to face problems like delay in healing wounds, increased risk of infection, bruising, scarring and pulmonary problems.
  • It has been observed that many individuals undergoing plastic surgery tend to suffer from an obsession or an infatuation with their look. This can cause an addiction and may impel them to undergo plastic surgery several times. A common psychological disorder in this regard is known as ‘body dysmorphic disorder’, where people develop such a distorted and weird perception of their body that they can’t be satisfied with any look.

But sometimes plastic surgery becomes inevitable, especially for reconstructing damaged parts of the body caused by burns, accidents or any inborn abnormality. Before opting for plastic surgery, it is very essential to discuss every aspect of the method and also the cost involved, with your plastic surgeon. It is also advisable to research properly before selecting a qualified and certified surgeon and follow the instructions of your surgeon to avoid any surgical and post-surgical complication.
