Complications and risks after liposuction


after liposuction

As with any other surgery, complication may occur even after liposuction. Although it is not very often your surgeon should inform you on the risks. Complications may occur if your body has for example a reduced healing ability. Problems with recovery may occur if you do not observe surgeon’s instructions or you take unnecessary risk, for example when visiting solarium or doing sports. The skin may very rarely show:

  • infection

  • sensitivity disorder in damaged nerves

  • skin relief irregularities

  • skin pigmentation changes

  • abnormal scar forming

  • skin burns after laser liposuction

  • subcutaneous seromas

  • skin necrosis

Liposuction is a safe method of aesthetic surgery; however, you should follow all instructions of your surgeon and inform him/her on your health state. If the surgery is performed with precision by an experienced surgeon, the complications are minimal and the result is satisfactory. The liposuction of more than one area during one session is more complicated; eventually a combination of liposuction with other surgical interventions. It is performed rarely and mostly under general anesthesia.
