The risk of infection after nasal surgery is dependent on several factors - whether you are a carrier of certain harmful bacteria, whether the nose has been operated previously (scar tissue doesn't have as rich a blood supply as virgin tissue), and whether or not you smoke, since smoking restricts blood flow into the nose and increases the risk of infection. Your general state of nutrition and health also are factors. As always, follow your surgeons instructions carefully.
Liposuction brings your body into better proportion - it is NOT a weight loss tool. As you gain or lose weight, the fat cells that you already have just get bigger or smaller. Liposuction permanently changes the number of fat cells that live in the problem areas, so after your surgery, you don't selectively gain weight there any more. It is a wonderful and long-lasting solution to the problem.
It is also very important to follow your surgeons recommendations and instructions in the immediate post-operative period. It can make a significant difference in the quality of your outcome how well you obey your surgeon's instructions.
Immediately after surgery, the most common complication is bleeding. Perhaps a small vessel which was controlled at the time of surgery would reopen and begin to bleed after you get home. What you would notice is a dramatic swelling of the affected breast. Even the nipple may turn blue, and pain increases. This complication is usually not dangerous, but if left untreated, it would not heal properly, so surgical intervention is usually required. This is a simple opening of the affected breast, removing the implant for a moment while the vessel is controlled, then replacement of the implant, and closing the incision. This complication will happen to about one patient in 60. While many surgeons offer correction of a hematoma (blood around the implant) without additional charge, there is usually a cost involved with the use of an operating room, or for an anesthesiologist or nurse anesthetist to put you to sleep for the procedure. These costs are usually outside the control of your surgeon.
Infection is a rare complication after breast augmentation. Most surgeons use antibiotics during and for a short period after the surgery as a preventative. Also, many surgeons place a disinfectant solution around the sterile implant at the time of surgery to further minimize this risk. Although extremely rare, if a significant infection were to occur around the implant, oral antibiotics may have a hard time eliminating the infection, and it may require that the implant be removed. Then the infection is cleared, and several weeks later, the implant would be placed again. I stress that such a complication is rare. I have been in practice for 37 years, and have seen a significant infection after augmentation surgery only once.
Placement of breast implants may stretch or damage sensory nerves to the nipples or areolae causing numbness. Usually the sensation returns, but occasionally, longer lasting numbness of the tissues can persist. This complication is also quite uncommon. To a degree, this risk is greater the larger the implant that is placed, since larger implants put more stress on the nerves. Most surgeons are careful to watch out for those nerves, and minimize this risk.
This risk of implant rupture has largely gone away these days with the advent of highly cohesive gel which doesn't leak out, even if an implant becomes ruptured. Have your doctor demonstrate for you the characteristics of the gel in the implants you are going to have placed. I often show patients a gel implant that has been cut in half. Holding it upside down, nothing leaks out! Modern implants are also very strong, and the risk of rupturing an implant during even contact sports or having a mammogram are extremely small. Of course, if you choose a saline filled implant, there is a greater possibility that such an implant could eventually fail, in which case the breast would simply deflate overnight as the saline leaks out and is absorbed. This is not a medical emergency, but it IS a cosmetic emergency!
I hope this information has been helpful. I wish you All the Best!
