    Plastic surgery is safe and it is up to you to do some research.

    Firstly, like anything in life, Plastic Surgery has potential risks. Your treating surgeon should explain all of the risks involved to you so that you can weigh up your options.

    The price of plastic surgery varies considerably and consideration needs to be given as to why a surgeon charges a lesser or a higher price and the safety of the facility where the surgery is to be performed. 

    You should also research of your treating surgeon’s qualifications. Your surgeon should have FRACS (plastic and reconstructive) and be a member of ASPS. (The Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons).
