The statistics

In 2013 statistics from the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) showed that 50122 people underwent some form of cosmetic surgery. Indeed, the popularity of these 'corrective' operations seems to be increasing, since in 2012 there were significantly fewer (45365) individuals going under the knife.

The most popular surgeries that year were breast augmentations, with 11135 people choosing to undergo this operation, and blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) which was undergone by 7808 individuals.

However, plastic surgery remains a complicated and potentially hazardous procedure, and it should not be undertaken lightly. Just as in all operations, cosmetic surgery can go wrong. This might not only leave the patient feeling depressed and withdrawn, but could also put their life at risk.

What could go wrong?

For the most part surgeons will try their hardest to use all of their expertise and experience in order to successfully perform and complete an operation. Nevertheless, however qualified and well-practiced they are, they are still only human, and are prone to making errors in judgement.

The NHS website states that the possible complications of plastic surgery include, but are not limited to:

  • Bleeding
  • Pain and discomfort
  • Infection
  • Scarring
  • Implant failure
  • Skin graft or flap failure

With these physical complications can come risks to health, including psychological problems if an operation causes the patient to suffer long-term injuries and a reduced quality of life.
