Is cosmetic surgery safe?

Cosmetic surgery is very safe when performed on a healthy patient by an appropriately trained and experienced surgeon in a licensed and accredited surgical facility.

If you have serious medical conditions then you may not be a candidate for cosmetic surgery due to high risk of complications. Cosmetic surgery is not minor surgery! General anesthesia is also required for most cosmetic surgery.

It is very important that you completely disclose any health problems, prior surgeries, any medications or health supplements that you take, and any allergies that you have so that a thorough evaluation of your eligibility for cosmetic surgery can be made. 

If you have medical conditions that are well controlled then you may still be a candidate for cosmetic surgery.
