Common Plastic Surgery Mishaps

by | May 15, 2017 | Personal Injury | 0 comments

In the state of Michigan and in other states across the country, there are billions of dollars being spent on plastic surgery procedures. These are procedures that can change the look of the patient in a manner so drastic that others don’t know who the person is or in a way that is so minor that only the patient knows what was done. Even with the simplest procedure, there are complications that can arise.

A bruise is a common complication that can be seen after plastic surgery. It’s often seen after a facelift or after procedures on the breasts. At times, there is a need to drain the blood that pools to create the bruise. A seroma is another complication where the blood will begin to pool under the skin. This will look like a blister but with blood instead of water.  As with any type of plastic surgery, nerve damage is a possibility. You will likely notice tingling in the hands, feet, or other parts of the body if damage has occurred. Some women will lose sensation in the nipples following procedures with the breasts.

An infection is a common complication that can follow any kind of plastic surgery. It could result from something as simple as not washing the wound properly. Some patients will need to have further surgery to clear out the infection or be placed on antibiotics that are given through an IV. Blood clots can form in the veins before or after surgery and break away to travel to other areas of the body. Most of the time, the clot will travel to the lungs and possibly be fatal to the patient.

Scarring is another issue that is seen after plastic surgery. This can be disappointing to some patients as the surgery was supposed to improve the look of their body. Another complication that is similar to scarring is when the patient sees a result that isn’t expected. There could still be issues with asymmetry, or something could be larger or smaller than expected.

Damage to the organs can occur with any kind of plastic surgery, but it’s often seen with liposuction as there is pulling on the abdominal organs. When a patient is put to sleep, there is always the potential for something to happen with the anesthesia, which is another complication that needs to be kept in mind. A stroke or heart attack could occur along with a host of other issues. Blood loss can also occur with the surgical procedure.
