Risks and Considerations

Before considering any plastic surgical procedure performed by Dr. Kumar, it’s crucial to be aware of potential risks and complications. While Dr. Kumar and his team prioritize safety and strive for successful outcomes, it’s important to understand that all surgeries come with inherent risks. Below is a general overview of some of the potential risks associated with plastic surgical procedures. For a more comprehensive understanding of risks specific to the procedure you’re considering, we invite you to visit the procedure dedicated page on Dr. Kumar’s website.

Anesthesia Risks:

Anesthesia is generally safe, but complications can arise, including adverse reactions and breathing difficulties.


Infections at the surgical site are possible and may require antibiotics or additional treatment.


While efforts are made to minimise scarring, some procedures may result in visible scars.


Excessive bleeding during or after surgery can lead to complications and require further intervention.

Poor Wound Healing:

Certain factors like smoking or medical conditions can hinder the healing process.

Nerve Damage:

Temporary or permanent numbness, tingling, or loss of sensation in the surgical area can occur.

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and Pulmonary Embolism (PE):

Blood clots can form, potentially causing serious health risks.

Unsatisfactory Results:

There is a possibility that the outcome may not meet your expectations.

Implant Complications:

If your procedure involves implants, complications like rupture, leakage, or shifting can occur.

Skin Necrosis:

Loss of blood supply to the skin may result in tissue death.


Post-operative pain and discomfort are common but manageable with proper care.

Emotional Impact:

Your changed appearance may elicit emotional or psychological reactions.

Revision Surgery:

Additional surgery may be required to achieve desired results or address complications.
