What is Cosmetic Surgery?

Cosmetic surgery is carried out with the purpose of enhancing an individual’s appearance. Reconstructive surgery is also classified as a form of cosmetic surgery.

Cosmetic surgery carries the same risks as any other surgical procedures such as infection and complications during the procedure.

Many cosmetic procedures involve major full scale invasive surgery. Unlike other operations and procedures, cosmetic surgery is widely advertised on television, magazines and social media therefore there is a growing concern that clinicians are not explaining all the associated risks.

Cosmetic surgery that has had an adverse outcome can also affect the person psychologically. The majority of consumers undergo cosmetic surgery to improve their appearance. An adverse outcome can have a serious impact on the individual.
