As the demand grows for cosmetic surgery, consumers must realize that all cosmetic procedures―even ones that may seem simple―carry risks. If you are thinking about having cosmetic surgery, become an informed consumer about the procedure and its risks. Select a qualified doctor. Have realistic expectations about the results and know the benefits and limitations of surgery.
