Cosmetic surgery is felt to be safe because it deals with soft tissues and does not involve deeper muscles or nerves. While the risk of excessive bleeding or other complications is quite low, that risk is still present. Cosmetic surgery is real surgery and you should select a surgeon based on Board Certification, experience, and your consultation. General anesthesia is used for a wide variety of cosmetic procedures. Anesthesia has changed dramatically over the last decade and monitoring of the patient during surgery has made a great difference. Anesthetic agents are improved and the incidence of postoperative nausea has decreased. You should be in good general health before having surgery.
