Complications are rare, but we always try to educate our patients on all the risks as well as the benefits of procedures. Major complications from surgery include bleeding, infection, pain, large scars, contour irregularities, fluid collections, asymmetry, blood clots, stroke and/or heart attack. Of course, we will be staying in touch with patients to ensure that, should any of these complications occur, we will be doing everything possible to alleviate the problem.
