As with any surgery, a number of complications can occur. But the likelihood of these complications is reduced in the hands of a qualified plastic surgeon and in the presence of a competent anaesthetist.
The patient’s compliance to instructions given by the surgeon is also essential and include :
- stopping smoking 1 month before and after the procedure (reduction of all risks) ;
- not taking aspirin for 10 days before and after the procedure (reduced risk of hematoma) ;
Rare complications that could occur include, but are not limited to risk of hematoma, serome, infection, scarring and thrombo-embolic complications (phlebitis).
In the event of a complication, appropriate measures will be taken.
