Thank you for your question. In general, only elderly patients or those with significant medical problems (like heart, lung, or liver disease) are at increased risk with anaesthesia. Younger, healthy patients virtually never have issues with anaesthesia, so much so that I often do not discuss anaesthesia in-depth during the consultation compared to other risks. It is important for you to ask your Plastic Surgeon questions about the anesthesiologists they work with and facilities they operate in. Be sure to seek a board certified Plastic Surgeon and share any pre-existing medical issues you may have.
All the best
