Any form of surgery has an element of risk, whether it’s cosmetic or not.
Thankfully, many practicing cosmetic surgeons in the UK are registered with the General Medical Council (GMC), which means that they’ve had a minimum of 6 years specialist plastic surgery training in addition to their general training.
However, even the finest surgeon in the country cannot 100% guarantee that your surgery will go according to plan. In most cases, presuming that you select a reliable practitioner, your surgery will be a success. But it’s important to be aware that problems can occur, ranging from minor issues to full-blown medical emergencies.
It’s important to discuss things thoroughly with your surgeon before you book any procedure, to ensure that you fully understand the nature of the treatment and the risks involved.
