Not much: There is inherent danger in everything we do. That is why one should choose their surgeon wisely. Look for someone with the proper training who has a thoughtful approach and the risk should be minimal.

No, but be careful: As with any procedure, there are risks. Bleeding, infection, and anesthesia complications are the most "common" risks that we talk about. There may be a particular risk to that operation. Your board certified plastic surgeon will ask about your health. He/she may have you see another doctor, (cardiologist, internist, hematologist) to make sure that you are healthy for your particular surgey.
