Surgery Risk Information

At Samuel Yang Plastic Surgery your safety and well-being are our top priorities. While plastic surgery procedures have become increasingly safe and advanced, it is important to acknowledge that all surgeries carry some degree of risk. We believe in providing our patients with comprehensive information to make informed decisions about their desired procedures. In this section, we aim to educate you about the potential risks and complications associated with plastic surgery.

General Surgical Risks

Anaesthesia risks: As with any surgical procedure, the use of anaesthesia carries inherent risks. Our team of experienced anaesthesiologists will carefully evaluate your medical history and monitor you closely throughout the surgery to minimize these risks.

Infection: While we take every precaution to maintain a sterile environment, there is always a small risk of infection. We adhere to strict sterilization protocols to mitigate this risk, and in the event of an infection, we provide prompt and effective treatment.

Bleeding: Some degree of bleeding is expected during surgery, but excessive bleeding can lead to complications. Our surgical team is highly skilled in controlling bleeding and ensuring your safety.

Scarring: Although we employ advanced techniques to minimize scarring, the formation of scars is a natural part of the healing process. We will provide you with post-operative care instructions to optimize the healing and minimize visible scarring.

Individual Risk Factors

Your individual health status and medical history play a significant role in determining your surgical risk. It is important to disclose all relevant information, including allergies, medications, previous surgeries, and any chronic conditions, during your pre-operative consultations. This allows our Specialist Plastic Reconstructive & Cosmetic Surgeon to assess your risk profile accurately and tailor the surgical plan to your specific needs. We will thoroughly discuss the risks associated with your desired procedure during your consultation, addressing any specific concerns you may have.

Minimizing Surgical Risk

While risks cannot be completely eliminated, we strive to minimize them through the following measures:

Thorough pre-operative evaluations: Our Specialist Plastic Reconstructive & Cosmetic Surgeon will conduct a comprehensive assessment to ensure you are an appropriate candidate for surgery and to identify any potential risk factors.

Skilled surgical team: Our board-certified Specialist Plastic Reconstructive & Cosmetic Surgeon and experienced medical staff are committed to providing the highest standard of care, utilizing their expertise to minimize surgical risks.

Post-operative care: We will provide you with detailed instructions for a safe and successful recovery, including information on wound care, medications, and follow-up appointments. Following these guidelines diligently can help reduce complications.

Please remember that the information provided here is general in nature and not a substitute for a personalized consultation. During your consultation, we will address your specific concerns, thoroughly discuss the risks associated with your procedure, and answer any questions you may have. Your safety and satisfaction are of utmost importance to us, and we are here to guide you through every step of your plastic surgery journey.
