All surgical procedures has a certain risk and there
is never a guarantee. There are very few problems after
surgery. If it is a medical problem then the doctor
tries to correct it usually without any extra charge.
If there are problems depending on other medical conditions
in the patient, then the patient has to pay. This is
why you usually need a check-up with X-ray and heart
test before operation. Other problems, usually that
the patients expectation are not fulfilled are treated
case by case. One example can be after a breast implants
the breast are to small or to big according to the
patients expectations. This can also be corrected but
the patient usually has to pay for a new silicon implant
if the doctor agrees to operate again.
