The Hidden Dangers of Nips and Tucks: Lawyers at Console & Hollawell Examine the Risks of Cosmetic Surgery

Marlton, NJ (PRWEB) April 01, 2013

Despite a tough economy, the total number of cosmetic plastic surgery procedures performed in the United States rose 5 percent between 2011 and 2012, USA Today reported in “Botox or your bills? Plastic surgery wins out” on February 24, 2013. As procedures like Botox injections and surgical implants continue to become more prevalent across America, the frequency of these surgeries among celebrities could mislead the public into believing that cosmetic surgeries are risk-free. For attorney Richard P. Console, Jr., of Console & Hollawell, this may be cause for concern. Any medical procedure has the potential to carry risks, and Console believes that prospective patients considering cosmetic surgeries need to be fully informed of any possible complications before they enter the operating room.

“The decision to go under a plastic surgeon’s knife should be weighed at least as thoroughly as the decision to undergo any serious medical procedure. The fact that we as Americans are voluntarily undergoing unnecessary surgical procedures while the rest of medicine is trying to avoid dangerous, excessive surgeries is especially concerning,” Console said. “When it comes to cosmetic medical procedures, we are so captivated by the ‘cosmetic’ aspect that we tend to ignore the ‘medical’ facet almost completely. The result is that we look at these medical procedures that carry legitimate health risks as being little more elaborate than a haircut – and we don’t fully acknowledge the dangers these procedures present to our health.”

In his latest article, “Skin-Deep Beauty, Profound Risks: Cosmetic Procedures Are Still Medical Procedures,” Console examines the implications of underestimating the dangers associated with cosmetic surgical procedures, especially for teenagers, aging workers, and both genders. Console looks into the reasons why cosmetic surgeries have become such a trend and urges cosmetic surgeons to educate patients responsibly.
