There are even shows that show peoples transformations on how they looked before and after the surgery was done to them. But what happens when something goes terribly wrong during that process?

What Problems Can Arise After a Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery?

Sometimes, you can either not be happy with the outcome, or face an injury/emotional distress because of the surgery. Many factors can play into why surgical mistakes occur such as, carelessness, inexperience, an absence of adequate training and education, and even substance abuse while performing a surgery.
Plastic surgery can contain a series of severe side effects. Some of those side effects include, but are not limited to:

Factors that Increase the Risk of Cosmetic & Plastic Surgical Error
The patients Unfeasible Assumptions; Patients need to be made aware of what can happen before, throughout, and after the surgery has occurred.

Regardless of the matter, surgeons have to use their knowledge and skills to make sure that they try to achieve those exact expectations.
The patients physical and emotional health state before the operation; The patient has to try and be in a good emotional and physical health before the surgery.

The patient needs to tell the surgeon if they are consuming any medications before-hand.
