" Staph infection and its evil sibling MRSA, or methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, are of deep concern in the medical world. The bacteria’s ubiquitous nature, uncanny hardiness, ability to evolve and potential for causing very serious health issues—including death—are reasons you should know about staph and MRSA if you’re considering plastic surgery.
The first thing to understand about Staphylococcus aureus is that the bacterium is everywhere. According to the Mayo Clinic, it’s very common on the skin and inside the nose of healthy people and most often poses no problem as long as immune systems are up to par. But bacteria can invade the body through cuts and abrasions, and when you’re vulnerable due to illness or a medical procedure, your system may not be able to fight off staph.
Plastic surgery can increase the risk of staph infection due to the one-two punch of surgical wounds and the fact that your immune system will work extra hard to help you recover. Staphylococcus aureus can travel to internal organs through the breathing tube, IV tube and catheter your plastic surgeon may use during your procedure."
