Organ Transplants and Cosmetic Surgery

More and more patients are the recipients of solid organ transplants or SOT. Examples include kidney, liver or heart transplants. These patients have their immune systems shut down so their body does not reject their transplanted organ. A recent study included 340 surgeons who performed 552 cosmetic procedures in SOT PATIENTS. The overall complication rate was 4.3% which is not at all excessive. A short time ago I performed a breast augmentation procedure on a kidney transplant patient and she did well. Overall 68% of SOT patients had a kidney transplant.
