Though thousands of people undergo plastic surgery every year, there are some side effects to the procedures. Some patients have experienced headaches, nausea and prolonged pain. Another common side effect reported is inflammation surrounding the area of the body where the procedure was done. These side effects generally dissipate over time but can be bad in the beginning. Individuals may also experience bruising in areas of their body. In “Beautysurgeries,” (2011), the current fad in cosmetic procedures in the Hollywood community is the practice of injecting collagen to produce a supposedly sexy pout to a woman’s lips.
However it turns to inflated and unnaturally large lips. In facial surgery, bad plastic surgery can result from face lifts that are too tight, causing asymmetry and tightness. Some of them lose mobility sensation in their faces due to damaged nerves. Nevertheless, sometimes bad plastic surgery can cause pains, infections, allergic reactions and even death. It can promote to implant rejection, blood clots, nerve damage, pigmentation and skin necrosis to occur. Plastic surgery can also cause the difficulties to live with bad effect surgery. It can cause paralysis, deformation and excessive scarring.
Breast augmentation and liposuction are two or more popular procedures that cause scarring. It can be corrected by the surgeon but this does not always work. The emotional effects on patients’ well-being are one of the negative effects of plastic surgery. According to “Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery,” (2004), research has found that patients who dissatisfied with a surgery may request repeat procedures or experience depression and adjustment problems, social isolation, family problems, self-destructive behaviours and anger toward the surgeon to the staff.
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. For example, in one study by the National Cancer Institute (2001), women with breast implants were four times more likely to commit suicide than other plastic surgery patients. Besides that, plastic surgery is a very expensive method.
It can put tremendous financial pressure on the patients and family. While accessing the cost of plastic surgery, people often tend to take into account the cost of surgery only, and completely overlook the unexpected cost that can arise from 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.
