One of the risks of this procedure is related to poor wound healing. It is expected to see a fast wound recovery after the procedure, but abnormal scars can happen in the skin or deep tissues. These scars can show a different color from the skin around it and may require additional treatments, including surgery. This risk depends on the body’s healing process and it is not responsibility of the surgeon in any case.
Another effect of the procedure is pain, which can subside following your surgeon’s recommendations and taking the medication on the days and times prescribed. Keep in mind that every person handles pain differently; but if you experience heavy pain, please contact your surgeon. Chronic pain is not frequent, but if it happens, the patient might need additional medication or additional surgeries.
