Plastic Surgery Deaths By Tod Aronovitz | 05/02/18 | 0 Comment
Plastic Surgery is not Risk-Free
Many people think that plastic surgery comes without risks. Even though plastic surgery is safe for most people, it is not risk-free. It is estimated that the plastic surgery death rate is 2 per 100,000 people. Doctors will do a thorough examination in order to ensure that patients are healthy before surgery. However, there have been several cases reported where young, healthy people have died from plastic surgery.
Common Complications of Plastic Surgery:
An embolism is a blood clot. In some cases, an embolism can travel from another part of the body to the lungs. This can result in death. It can be difficult to treat a pulmonary embolism. It often occurs suddenly and urgent treatment is required to prevent death. Patients who develop embolisms may also require lifelong use of blood thinners. Additionally, some people are required to have surgery to remove the clot.
Drug and Anesthesia Overdose
This is a rare complication, but it can potentially result in death. Patients have to be monitored closely because of the risk of a reaction. Vomiting and nausea are common side effects of anesthesia. There is also a risk of nerve damage.
Breathing and Heart Emergencies
If you have heart disease, then you are more likely to have an emergency. There have been several cases reported where people have died due to undetected heart disease. However, even if you do not have any heart problems, there is a possibility that you can have a heart or breathing emergency during surgery.
