Live Liver Donations is generally a safe procedure. This is being done across in many countries safely. Individuals who donate a portion of their liver usually recover safely from the procedure and can expect to live a normal life and healthy life.


Although it's a safe surgery but some of the complications of Live Liver Donations are: Bile leakage, infection, Organ damage or other problems. Consult liver transplant doctors, who on evaluation of the donor will guide you through procedure. Hope our answer helps you.
