    Risks of Plastic Surgery

    The most common risks associated with plastic surgery are the same as for any surgical procedure. These include:

    • Reactions to anesthesia
    • Scarring
    • Infection
    • Fluid accumulation
    • Nerve damage
    • Hemorrhage
    • Nerve damage
    • Poor wound healing

    Some risks are specific to the type of surgery. For example, if you gain a significant amount of weight after a tummy tuck in Miami, the appearance of your scars could change. Some of the risks of a Miami breast augmentation include implant leakage, rupture or shifting. Dr. Ramiro Morales has extensive experience with a wide range of cosmetic surgery procedures and is meticulous about minimizing risk.

    Risks of Non-Invasive Treatments

    Fillers and Botox are outpatient procedures that you may be able to get on your lunch break. They have fewer risks than plastic surgery. However, patients may experience the following:

    • Bruising
    • Redness
    • Pain at the treatment site
    • Long-term numbness
    • Bruising
    • Infection
    • Granulomas

    Even though you can return to your normal activities after getting fillers or Botox, you should wait at least 24 hours before exercising. You should also avoid wearing makeup to keep the injection site free of bacteria.
