A few years ago, most of the people that were having cosmetic surgery procedures were older women who wanted to look younger. as time progressed, more and more younger women are now having cosmetic surgery done in their 20s and 30s. What many people do not understand is there are emotional and physical side effects that may go along with plastic surgery procedures.
One unintended side effect of cosmetic surgery is that it sometimes creates new problem areas on the body. There have been studies showing that a small percentage of that women who have gone through liposuction end up destroying the fat cells from their thighs and abdomen. So if they ever put the weight back on, the weight will be distributed unevenly. There is the small risk of having one feature fixed may destroy other features in the process.
People who are going to have cosmetic surgery done in order to look better on the outside, are not prepared for the mental toll that it may take on them. Emotional aspects such as insomnia, fatigue and pain from the procedure may lead some people down the road of depression. For example, after having a facelift, a person’s face looks like they were beat up for a few days after the procedure. while this is normal, there are people who are disappointed with these results and end up in a state of depression.
It goes without saying that the most damaging danger of this type of procedure is the way that other people react. Unfortunately, you have no control over what other people say or think. You may be a young mom in her late 20s who has decided to get a breast enlargement. You love the results but the moms in your playgroup disapprove of what you did to your body. now you may feel a bit uncomfortable about your new body in front of your peers.
During the hours following the procedure, you do have a small risk for infection. this is due to the fact that the wounds are still open enough for bacteria to get inside your bloodstream and spread throughout your body. Signs of a serious infection include a smelly odor near the injection site, fever, swelling around the infected site and a discharge coming from the infection.
Bleeding is not uncommon after a procedure is done by a plastic surgeon, but the bleeding may sometimes get a little heavy. Blood clots can occur as a result of a hematoma. Hematoma occurs when the blood accumulates underneath the skin. this condition usually goes away on its own, but if it does not, the blood will continue to accumulate until it eventually stops the flow of oxygen in the blood. this is a serious issue and may lead to swelling, numbness of the skin as well as death.
It is important to know all the pros and cons that are associated with any procedure that you are considering. Be sure to consult with your doctor so you know about all your options.
