The dangers of plastic surgery and its consequences on the body

In a world where the image acquires an increasingly important role, it is not uncommon for plastic surgeries to also grow: breast augmentation, tail, nose operations, liposuction, liposculpture.

Interventions that promise more beautiful bodies, but performed in an unsafe way can have irreversible consequences.

For a long time plastic surgeries were costly interventions, but over time they have become increasingly accessible to the general public. Both women and men, young people and adults, resort to these operations to look and feel better.

According to Ricardo Galán, specialist in aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery, president of the Colombian Society of Surgery in this area, the type of surgery depends on sex and age.

“In patients young women, most practice in Colombia is the breast augmentation mammoplasty, rhinoplasty (nose surgery) and liposuction. In patients younger men are rhinoplasty and liposculpture” said Galán

In the case of Latin America, Colombia is one of the countries where these procedures are most performed, where plastic surgery is two to four times cheaper than in the United States.

The economic variant leads not only Colombians to access these interventions, but also foreigners who come to the country with this objective, which leads to an increase in illegal centers.

In Colombia, unused spaces are known as garages clinics, and are dangerous places for patients because they are handled by non-professionals, and they use implements and unsafe materials.

While there are always risks in a surgery, in these clinics they are much larger. One of the most widespread dangers is the injection of biopolymers to increase the size of the buttocks, breasts or remove wrinkles from the face.
“They inject the biopolymer and after a few months the complications begin, because it gets infected, the wounds open, or the biopolymers migrate from the gluteal region to the lower extremities.
