by | Jul 19, 2017 | Personal Injury | 0 comments

Most people in Michigan probably assume that their plastic surgeon will warn them about any dangers or complications that are associated with their plastic surgery. After-all, these medical professionals are held to the highest standards. Well, the fact is that most surgeries carry a host of dangers and complications. Often, this must be stressed to the patient before they proceed with treatment. Here are a few popular procedures and the dangerous complications involved.

Lengthening Limbs

Lengthening limbs is sought by individuals that would like to lengthen their body. The surgery involves cutting the bones in half and is specifically for individuals that would like to be taller. Complications arise when the bone might not heal properly, causing nerve and blood vessel damage.

Fat Injections

The lipolysis injection is still raising a lot of eyebrows and remains very controversial. This procedure requires a mix of drugs injected into a body part to reduce fat in the area. The fact is that the FDA has not approved the drug. In addition, the injections are thought to cause several known health related concerns like hypertension and cardiac arrhythmias.

Butt Augmentation

Several deaths occurred because of butt implant procedures gone wrong. The fact is that, but augmentation is an incredibly involved and complicated procedure and the risk level is extremely high. Risks involved include scarring, nerve damage, and more.


The popular name for this cosmetic procedure is Tummy Tuck. Excess skin is removed from the abdominal area and the muscles are tightened to smooth the area. Several risks are involved with this procedure. They range from poor healing, fluid retention, to numbness.

Facial Reconstruction

Facial reconstruction is a very risky surgery. Facial reconstruction might involve nose jobs, face lifts, and more. Dangers include numbness, facial drooping, nerve damage, breathing problems, damage to blood vessels, and much more.


Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries performed today. Still, that does not make the surgery any less dangerous. Complications involved with the surgery include tissue damage to numbness, and much more.

Body Lift

The body lift is considered one of the most dangerous cosmetic surgeries around today. This surgery involves several risky procedures. For example, breast lift, stomach lift, thigh lift, and buttock lift. It is reported that people suffered numbness, pain, heart problems, pulmonary concerns, infection, bleeding, scarring, and more.

It is important to remember that all plastic surgery carries a great risk. Discuss all risks candidly with the plastic surgeon before the procedure takes place.
