In brief: Many.

Good question but too broad to answer here.
The advantages/disadvantages of any specific procedure will be numerous. In other words, every procedure has its pros/cons as well as a whole set of potential risk/complications associated with it. Therefore, best to be evaluated in person by board-certified plastic surgeons who, after discussing your concerns and goals, can provide you with good advice.

In brief: Multiple

The main disadvantage is you are talking about surgery with the risks of anesthesia, scarring and the costs associated with surgery.
The biggest advantage is when done in the right patient for the right reasons, you can correct whatever the problem is that is bothering you. There are many different ways to answer your question but you should talk to a plastic surgeon about what you want done.

In brief: Plastic surgery goal

The advantage of plastic surgery, is improvement of form and function.
The goal of cosmetic plastic surgery is to improve the way you look. Reconstructive cases improve the way you look, but also restore function. Both improve patient's self-esteem and well being. The disadvantage, is that surgery carries some risks, and this will be dependent on the surgical procedure. http://www.dassmd.com.

In brief: There are none.

When plastic surgery is being done for the right reasons, on a healthy minded and in body patient, there should be no disadvantages and only benefits.
Good luck from nyc.
