Is Cosmetic Surgery Safe? Safety Is Auralia’s Number One Priority

Last Updated : August 2, 2021

With thousands and thousands of operations performed each year in Ireland, the standards of cosmetic surgery have never been higher. 

In Ireland, we provide patients with safe cosmetic care and give them the life-changing surgery they want and need.

But some people do often question whether or not cosmetic surgery is safe. This is normal. In fact, it’s good to ask how safe procedures are, especially if you’re not familiar with how they work or how your surgeon works. 

Many people believe that cosmetic surgery in Ireland has become a bit trivialised. Some people who get cosmetic surgery might not even fully understand that they’re still having surgery. Whenever you have surgery, you will undergo the same or similar risks as with any other operation. 

Cosmetic surgery, no matter what the internet may suggest, is not simple. Whether you’re having a small or big procedure, there are always risks. 

Today, we’re going to talk about the risks involved with cosmetic surgery so you can stay informed when considering surgery for yourself. 


Is cosmetic surgery worth it?

People are often unhappy with the way their bodies look. This can affect their mental health and, in turn, impact their physical health. 

Those who choose to get cosmetic surgery might feel they need to make these changes to their bodies to finally feel comfortable in their own skin. 

When getting cosmetic surgery, even if it’s the one thing you need to make yourself feel better about your body, you should always know the risks. Always talk to your surgeon about potential complications regarding your procedure. 

Before you decide to go through with any surgery, make sure you talk to your cosmetic surgeon about all the details. This will help you figure out whether cosmetic surgery is the right choice for you.

How do you know if you’re a good candidate for cosmetic surgery?

A good candidate for cosmetic surgery is somebody who:

  • Has realistic expectations about what can be changed with their surgery
  • Understands the medical risks and physical effects 
  • Knows what kind of lifestyle changes they’ll need to make to aid their recovery 
  • Realises the expenses involved with some surgeries 
  • Has no chronic medical conditions
  • Doesn’t have a history of smoking 


What are the risks of cosmetic surgery? 

All surgeries, whether they’re medical or cosmetic, have risks. No matter who you are there will always be risks with cosmetic surgery and understanding these risks is a huge part of the process. 

Some things that increase risks include:

  • If you’re overweight or have a high BMI 
  • If you’re a smoker 
  • If you have underlying health issues 

Before your surgery, you’ll be able to meet with your surgeon to discuss the risks related to your health history. Be sure to ask as many questions as you need to in order to feel comfortable about the procedure. 

Some of the possible complications for any surgery include:

  • Pneumonia and blood clots 
  • Infections at the incision site
  • Fluid build up beneath the skin 
  • Mild bleeding 
  • Severe bleeding 
  • Abnormal scarring 
  • Separation of the surgical wound
  • Nerve damage

Some of these complications might require further surgery. While risks are just a part of having a surgical procedure, your surgeon should do their best to advise and guide you in avoiding unwanted effects from your procedure.
