Advantages & Disadvantages
In any case, there are pros and cons associated with plastic surgery and you should be aware of it before considering a cosmetic surgery:
Advantages of Plastic Surgery
Advancement in medical equipment and surgical instruments has made plastic surgery less painful than in the past. Most plastic surgeons will confirm that most of their patients are no longer afraid to go under the knife, as the threshold of pain is significantly reduced compared to what it was 10 or 20 years. For example, if you have plastic surgery for your face or breasts, you may not feel pain for about 24 hours and simple analgesics prescribed by your surgeon can easily relieve the pain.

Disadvantages of Plastic Surgery:
- Costs for Prohibiting Plastic Surgery Intervention
In most cases, plastic surgery is not covered by health insurance plans, and the price varies depending on the procedure being performed. It definitely does not fall into the bucket! It can reach tens of thousands of dollars. When considering the cost of the procedure, you should also add the cost of recovery, postoperative care, and audit operations that are needed.
- Plastic surgery interventions will not turn you into someone else
Plastic surgery is not a fairy-tale godfather who can transform you with a stick. You should not expect a brand new face or body after a plastic surgery procedure. Having realistic expectations about what surgery can do for you is the first step towards successful intervention. The passage of plastic surgery to look more like your favorite celebrity is not a good idea. Expecting to have a new personality or life after plastic surgery is like coming to the Moon. What a plastic surgical operation wants to do is to correct your imperfections and improve your appearance by looking at your best. Trying to become someone else with the help of plastic surgery should be avoided at all costs.
- Plastic surgery interventions have risks
Like any surgical procedure, plastic surgery is not without risk. The most common complications are excessive bleeding, infection at the site of cutting, necrosis and side effects on anesthetics.
Each plastic surgery procedure comes with its own set of special complications such as loss of sensitivity in the treated area and irregularities in contours for liposuction procedures. Increased breast and buttocks with implants triggers the risk of capsular contraction, as well as possible breakup and leakage of implants.
Edema, seroma and hematoma are also potential complications of plastic surgery procedures that can be prevented in some cases and can be treated in others. Swelling and bruising are common after plastic surgery, because the tissues experience trauma and injury and need time to heal and recover. You do not have to worry if the swelling does not move in a few days. It can take up to several weeks, even months before swelling, especially if it involves complex or multiple procedures.
A person who wishes to undergo plastic surgery or cosmetic procedures to improve a particular aspect of his body or face should conduct extensive research and collect as much information about procedures as possible before a plastic surgeon goes. The information is available online on specialized sites or from people who already had this kind of intervention in the past.
Plastic surgery is an elective procedure, not an urgent procedure, so there is no reason to take urgent decisions about a surgeon who will perform the procedure and type of procedure. The decision to undergo plastic surgery should be carefully considered and measured, and the patient should be fully aware of all the risks and complications associated with the expected benefits before scheduling the procedure.
Keep in mind that plastic surgery has advantages and disadvantages, and neglecting one for the benefit of another can prevent getting better results after surgery.
