High Blood Pressure

Find Cosmetic Surgery Clinics »

A medical condition in which an individual’s blood pressure remains consistently above the average, healthy heart-rate. 

High blood pressure is a potential danger in any surgical procedure as it can introduce complications leading to cardiac arrest.  It can also inhibit the recovery period if there are associated health issues.  Depending on the severity of your high blood pressure, and the common use of drugs to regulate the condition in chronic cases of high blood pressure, you may not be suitable for some forms of surgery or other cosmetic treatments.
