With the recent news of the Argentine model who died while undergoing a cosmetic procedure, highlights some of the risks associated with these procedures. Though extremely rare, complications can arise. This unfortunate situation reinforces the need for patients seeking cosmetic procedures to carefully select their surgeon as well as the operatory facility where their procedure is performed. Patients who shop around and make their decision on price alone or who are persuaded by aggressive advertising campaigns regarding the latest techniques may be placing their appearance and health in jeopardy.
It is important that any cosmetic or plastic surgeon is certified in the field in which they are performing procedures. Equally important is that office based operatory facilities should have the highest level of certification from their state, and that the physician anesthesiologist are qualified to assure maximum patient safety during surgery.
