“While the majority of procedures are completed without issues, surgeons who deal with plastic surgery operations say with any medical procedure there can be risks.

Dr. Julie Khanna is a plastic surgeon with 25 years of experience and is not involved in Hassan’s case. Khanna is the past president of the Canadian Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and the medical director of Plastic Surgery ICLS in Oakville, Ont.

Khanna said that before going forward with any plastic surgery procedure, research is key and it’s important to make sure the doctor is experienced and certified.

“I think whenever you’re thinking about plastic surgery, the most important thing is to go to somebody who’s qualified and somebody who specializes in this field,” Khanna said.
