A bad plastic surgery is sometimes in the eye of the beholder. What to you might look terrible when you see it in another person might make them feel that much younger and that much more beautiful. What a cosmetic procedure looks like afterwards is more than just about aesthetics however.
There are complications that can arise during or following the operation that can be very serious. Some of these include infection, blood clots, abscesses, wound separation and necrosis. If these problems are recognized immediately then a successful form of treatment can be undertaken.
When plastic surgery goes very wrong it can lead to paralysis, permanent pain, and disfigurement that is caused by asymmetry or extreme scarring. Some people pay an even higher price for a bad cosmetic procedure because it ends up claiming their lives.
The good thing to note is that the rate of death due to plastic surgery is very low. In fact it is much lower than the rates connected to other types of operations.
If you feel that you are a victim of a botched job then place a phone call to the surgeon and schedule an appointment. It is not easy to admit but regardless of the skill of the doctor things can sometimes go awry.
On the other hand what you may be experiencing is possibly a normal element of the healing and recuperation process. Bear in mind that no two people heal in exactly the same manner or at exactly the same rate.
After speaking with the surgeon and showing him what it is that is distressing to you if the problem warrants another operation then he may offer to perform corrective surgery on you. This should not cost you any money whatsoever. Do not lose your temper with him but allow him to rectify the surgery situation before you decide to take matters in another direction.
If speaking with your doctor about the plastic surgery does not bring you the results you had hoped for then it is time to seek out another board-certified and qualified surgeon for a second opinion. Look either for a professional who specializes in the field of plastic surgery that you underwent or else one who specifically works in a corrective manner.
Bear in mind that a corrective procedure is not just cosmetic in nature but is also reconstructive and as a result carries its own share of potential risks. If you are planning to have one, two or even three or more reconstructive procedures then it is necessary to allow a year to go by before you can have the same area worked on. This is for the sake of your own safety.
