What Are The Potential Risks And Complications?

Cosmetic procedures are generally safe, but every surgery carries some risk. These include

  • Hematoma (collection of blood under the skin)
  • Infection and bleeding
  • Complications of anesthesia
  • Injury to nerves that control facial muscles
  • Numbness
  • Scarring

Usually, these conditions improve within days or weeks. Sometimes, however, these conditions are permanent, or more surgery is necessary to correct them.
