These people must have seen the celebrities who come out saying that they had their bodies gone through plastic surgery.

The Dangers

The real danger of plastic surgery lies in the things that you know nothing about. As of recently, the cosmetic surgery business in the US costs $10.1 billion every year. Women takes up 91 percent of the patients and even elected to get 5 percent more on the cosmetic procedures according to the reports last 2010. The surgeons and psychologists have warned those who want to take up plastic surgery should consider it first, because many of those who have undergone the procedure were not fully prepared of the risks involved, which affect cultural, social, emotional and physical changes that are mostly permanent. Here are some of those hidden dangers about the procedure.

Little do patients know that there are new problems that will occur after the surgery. One of these problems is that they do not know changing one area of the body is going to affect other parts surrounding it, such as altering its structure. One example of this is the liposuction procedure. This eliminates fat from the thighs or stomach but sooner or later it will redistribute to areas that are less flattering such as the upper back and arms. Botox injections also causes paralysis on certain muscles of the face, yet it may also show muscles more active that it seems strange to look at. It is generally understood that once you tamper a part of your body, it will create new problems that you need to cope with.

Another danger is the tension or split up with your partner. According to research from a certain psychiatrist, those that have undergone plastic surgery because they believed that it will help with their romantic relationship receives one rude awakening. Men are particularly apt to misunderstanding the motives of their woman, believing that they are dissatisfied or even interested into attracting the opposite sex.
