- Tobacco accounts for more than 5 million deaths per year (far greater than cosmetic surgery), but smoking is not banned. 
- Patients are made aware of all associated risks.
- Patients may be disfigured and scarred (from birth, or from an accident), causing them extreme emotional distress.
- Cosmetic enhancements are nothing new in society; most women apply make-up etc.

For some people, their appearance can significantly get in the way of their life. Patients are aware of the slim risks it takes to be slim (pun intended, har har), but they choose to go through with it because they would rather take a small risk and gain the potential of bettering their lives through a greater self-esteem. I can see that this option is not for everyone, but I believe the benefits largely outweigh any potential risks, especially when you look at the death rates for other daily activities such as driving.

I would also like to mention that everything in life comes with the risk of death; travelling to a holiday destination can be dangerous, but the rewards for the traveller far outweigh the risks. The same is true for people who undergo elective surgery. For some people, their self-esteem is so low -- maybe an accident they had, or a birth defect -- that they would rather take a small risk to potentially reap the benefits for the rest of their lives.
