Common Risks Associated with Your Favorite Plastic Surgery Procedures
In today’s world, plastic surgery is very much on the rise – more people than ever before are undergoing procedures, whether they be to correct something that is in need of reconstruction or if it being performed in an effort to enhance a part of your face and/or body, that you simply are unhappy with. According to Dr. Sergey Voskin of Goals Plastic Surgery, the top plastic surgeon NYC has in practice for procedures like the BBL aka Brazilian Butt Lift, while more and more patients are choosing to undergo surgical enhancement, many of these patients are doing so without doing the proper research and educating themselves on the ins and outs of the procedure they desire. In such cases, patients will often complain about their results, either feeling they do not meet their desires, the results aren’t what they expected, or the side effects have taken them completely by surprise. The latter is often the most popular case, for instance, in a case where a patient where to have a BBL or Brazilian Butt Lift performed, she may not have known, or chose to ignore her surgeon’s warning that a decent percentage of the fat that is transferred will be reabsorbed into the body, and their backside will be smaller than it first appears after surgery. In addition, during a procedure like the BBL a patient might not realize how much swelling or bruising the recovery period actually entails, even though this is one of the first things a surgeon will explain about the Brazilian Butt Lift recovery. As the top plastic surgeon NYC has to offer, at Goals Plastic Surgery Dr. Voskin makes it his duty to educate patients on the risks of surgery before they go through with it, however, patients must not only take heed, but do some research on their own as well. Having already explained some things associated with the BBL, here are some of the other most common risk factors of popular procedures out there today.
· Lip Augmentation
More women than ever before, and actually a ton of men, are undergoing lip augmentation to increase the size and improve the shape and definition of their lips. In today’s society big lips are simply in, and according to Dr. V, the top plastic surgeon NYC has to offer, while patients are often in love with their results, they never realize the amount of swelling and pain that is common following the procedure – even though this is only a minimally invasive procedure using fillers. Sometimes patients can experience allergic reactions to fillers and the pain and swelling can often last upwards of a full month or even two.
· Face & Neck Lift
The face lift is one of the most popular options for those men and women trying to fight the physical effects of aging and get rid of that unsightly loose, hanging skin. Other side effects and common risks include:
o Scarring, often minimal when incisions are made strategically.
o Skin Loss
o Temporary Facial Paralysis & Numbness
o Changes to Hairline
· Tummy Tuck
With the tummy tuck, sometimes known as the abdominoplasty, men and women are able to tighten and tone their midsection, relieving them of unwanted, unsightly loose, hanging skin. This area is known to be the toughest area to tone, and therefore this procedure can help patients to trim a small amount of surface fat and loose skin to reveal a slimmer, trimmer abdomen and flank area. Side effects and risks can include:
o Excess Bleeding
o Possibility of an infection is much higher than in other procedures.
o Fluid Build-Up
o Poor skin and wound healing. Often takes a long time for the area to heal itself.
o Loss of skin.
o Scarring and Skin Discoloration
