Recent reports have shown that despite the economy, people continue to spend money on procedures to help them look better. While people continue to head to their doctors looking to improve their appearance, surgeons are also advising people to avoid having potentially dangerous procedures. Here are the top 5 cosmetic procedures with the highest risks.


While people are constantly striving to become slimmer, lipodissolve is a procedure that should be avoided. The shot is a part of mesotherapy, and its main purpose is to help people get rid of fat deposits that won't go away. Doctors have noted that lipodissolve can cause swelling, pain, hard lumps, and multiple skin problems. While lipodissolve is legal in Michigan and other parts of The United States, it has been banned in Brazil and other parts of the World.

Cosmetic Foot Surgery

Cosmetic foot surgery involves a number of procedures that are designed to help you have better looking feet. There is serious risk that occurs when undergoing this procedure. Some of the side effects of this procedure include nerve damage, toe swelling, and even chronic pain in your foot.

Cosmetic Leg Lengthening

This surgery is a very painful procedure that involves people having both of their legs broken and then having screws attached to their legs to help extend their bones. Most surgeons in the United States don't allow people to undergo this type of procedure without them having psychological testing.

Permanent Filler Injections

Injectable fillers are gels that are injected into the skin to help people get fuller lips while eliminating their wrinkles. Most of the fillers on the market today are temporary, however some fillers can stay in the body for a longer period of time. Permanent fillers such as liquid silicone can cause dangerous side effects such as tissue binding that causes a distorted appearance.

Breast Augmentation Injections

These injections are designed to make the breasts full of fat without leaving scars. Doctors take fat from other parts of the body, including the thighs and buttocks and place it in the breasts. By cleansing the fat and injecting it somewhere else, doctors assure patients that this is a safe enhancement procedure. However, this procedure does come with dangerous risks. The re-injected fat can create a mass buried in the breast tissues. Women who undergo this procedure are at a serious risk for catching breast cancer.

If you have undergone one of these procedures and experienced a negative side effect, you have a right to seek financial compensation.
