Plastic Surgery Complications and Deaths are Rare, Despite Highly Publicized Death of Donda West
Date:11/13/2007

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill., Nov. 13 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following the tragic death of Donda West, mother of hip-hop star Kanye West, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reminds consumers that plastic surgery is real surgery and outlines several important recommendations when considering plastic surgery.

"The death of a patient is always tragic and devastating for all involved, particularly the patient's family and the medical team," said Richard D'Amico, MD, ASPS president. "However, we don't want to unnecessarily frighten the public. While this situation is rare, the decision to have a plastic surgery procedure is serious. No-risk surgery doesn't exist."

ASPS recommends six essential points when considering any plastic surgery procedure:

1. Do your homework: Research the procedure, the benefits and the risks. Go to http://www.plasticsurgery.org for the latest information on plastic surgery procedures.

2. Have realistic expectations: Ask your plastic surgeon about the benefits and risks of your surgery; discuss your expectations and understand side effects and recovery time.

3. Be informed: Talk to patients who have had your procedure so you know what to expect.

4. Ask tough questions: Consult with your plastic surgeon and discuss your full medical history to determine the most appropriate treatment.

5. Choose an ASPS Member Surgeon: ASPS Member Surgeons are qualified, trained and properly certified. They adhere to a strict code of ethics, receive continuous education and operate only in accredited facilities.

6. Confirm accreditation of outpatient surgery center: If your surgery may take place in an outpatient surgery center, be sure it is accredited. ASPS requires that all members who perform surgery under anesthesia must do so in a facility that meets certain criteria, such as the appropriate accreditation and state licensure.
