What can go wrong?
Normally a facelift can cause slight bruising and fluid drains are used to get rid of excess blood. But in rare causes someone may be unlucky enough to suffer complications such as:
- Infection (viral and bacterial)
- Excess blood loss
- Facial nerve damage
- Reaction to anesthetic used in the procedure
- Not satisfied with results
- Wounds not healing
- Irritation caused by bandages
These complications can sometimes be life threatening or could cause you to have longer off work time than anticipated. That’s why we don’t believe any one should suffer as a consequence of someone else’s actions. So if you believe you have had a facelift that has gone wrong then get in touch, no obligation.
What are the implications
A facelift can be a major operation and takes time to recover from. Their can be complications during and after surgery, the most common are:
- Blood clots
- Loss of hair and skin
- Damage to facial nerves
- Pockets of blood can develop under the skin
Some people choose to have surgery abroad mainly due to the low cost, but we have seen cases of cosmetic surgery being carried out by a unqualified surgeon. This can be very dangerous and can pose many risks such as serious injuries or complications from a procedure. It is also illegal for an unqualified practitioner to carry out any type of surgery without the necessary qualifications.
