Here are some of the risks associated with general, cosmetic surgery procedures:
- Nerve damage
- Botched outcome
Depending on the type of cosmetic surgery you undergo, certain risks may differ. It’s always best to contact a professional for answers to your risk-related questions. Call Dr. Jeffrey Hopkins today; his realm of knowledge and expertise in the field of cosmetic surgery is unparalleled.
What is the difference between cosmetic and reconstructive surgery?
There are certainly a few key differences between cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. Cosmetic surgery is usually performed to correct or enhance a patient’s appearance and help improve self-esteem. On the other hand, reconstructive surgery is typically used to correct an injured or deformed physical characteristic. Essentially, reconstructive surgery is medically necessary, whereas cosmetic surgery is an aesthetic choice.
The procedures themselves are similar, but the intention for the procedure can differ quite a bit.

How do I know if cosmetic surgery is right for me?
While the decision to undergo cosmetic surgery is a personal one, there are some general criteria for being a good candidate.
Cosmetic surgery may be right for patients with no serious health problems, obesity issues, or tobacco and alcohol addictions. It’s also critical to know the variety of risks associated with the specific procedure you’d like to undergo. Lastly, viable candidates for cosmetic surgery always have a healthy understanding of the procedure itself, as well as a reasonable expectation for the surgery’s outcome.
