What can go wrong with cosmetic surgery?
As with any type of surgery, there is the potential for things to go wrong. Any surgery carried out on your face has the potential for some serious repercussions should it go wrong. For example, if nerves are damaged or severed there may be permanent problems with the movement in your face.
With breast enlargements, there was the recent PIP implant scandal, but alongside this there are many long term issues with breast implants. They can become hard with lumps in the implants, they can cause ripples or folds in your skin or they can leak and cause other health problems too.
