A common problem is the patient's confusion regarding the type of treatment that would benefit them the most. Clearly defining an attainable goal and the true benefits of a given procedure require the advice of an unconditionally honest, skilled, and knowledgeable plastic surgeon well-versed in the specific conditions and the variety of treatment options best suited to guarantee the best chances of success. Do your homework in the education and review of plenty of results from any "plastic surgeon" prior to engaging in a procedure!
-Hematoma = prolonged bleeding or loss of blood supply to certain areas.
-Injuries to nerves with loss of sensibility or muscle function.
-Injuries to the salivating glands.
-If bone is cut, that may heal slowly as may the scars on the skin.
-And last of all is delayed healing by infection.
Facial surgery is highly specialized, but there are many skilled surgeons to go to.
Cosmetic surgery is no different, except that it is elective in most cases and the patient has to decide whether or not they can live with the consequences should things go wrong, or the outcome not be what was expected.
