Very Safe. Risks: infection, bleeding, seroma, hematoma, wound healing problems, abnormal scarring, loss of sensation, inability to breast-feed, breast asymmetry, necrosis of tissue or skin, unsatisfactory cosmetic results, unpredictability of exact cup size, recurrence of the breast hypertrophy, the potential for further surgery, venous thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, pneumonia and death (very rare).
Very small chance. The risk of death, in healthy individuals, for this surgery is less than 1 in50, 000. Choosing a board certified pastic surgeon with a lot of experience, who uses safe facilities and safe anesthesiologists will truly minimize this risk.
Unlikely. Death from breast reduction surgery would be extremely uncommon. The risk of death would most likely be related to anesthesia or a large blood clot traveling to the heart. This is typically an outpatient surgery and well tolerated.
Extremely Rarely. Breast reduction surgery is quite safe. Every surgery carries common and unique risks, however, and the healthier you are, the lower your chances of experiencing a risk.
Yes. Any surgical procedure carries with it a risk of death. That being said, in a healthy adult, the risk is low. Breast reduction surgery itself does not carry a higher risk of death than other surgical procedures.
Surgical deaths. Though a very rare event ANY surgical procedure can have a serious side effect.
