It is important to remember that liposuction is a surgical procedure as such, it is not risk free. The risks and complications of liposuction range from mild to potentially life threatening. The dangers of liposuction increase in proportion to the amount of fat removed. If liposuction has done large area of the body than risk will be increase as well. The vital organ of the body also has to chance to be affected. Other dangers of liposuction can occur during the recovery process, in which the patient has unfavorable drug reactions.
Under most safety condition, removing a large amount of fat at a time may result in loose skin, Its depend on one`s skin elasticity. Stretch marks are usually an indication of poor skin elasticity
Infections may happen after any surgery and may occur after liposuction. Many doctors prescribe antibiotics to take after surgery to prevent infection before it starts, Signs of infection are redness, increasing tenderness, red streaks visible on the skin, vomiting, fevers over 101 degrees Fahrenheit, and chills.
During liposuction, the physician is unable to see where the canula or probe is. It is possible to puncture internal organs such as the intestines. When organs are damaged, infection may result and surgery may be required to repair them. So, if anybody has a chronic medical condition such as heart or kidney disease, he should avoid liposuction
The biggest dangers of liposuction procedures have been related to three factors: the risks associated with general anesthesia and sedation, risks associated with blood loss and fluid replacement or imbalance, and risks associated with excessive liposuction. The drugs used for general anesthesia are relatively more dangerous than those used for local anesthesia. Local anesthesia is considerably safer. Fat tissue, which contains a lot of liquid, is removed during liposuction. Also, physicians may inject large amounts of fluids during liposuction. This may result in a fluid imbalance.
Liposuction is serious surgery. It involves making an incision and suctioning the adipose tissue from under the skin and out of the body. This causes the destruction of numerous blood vessels and surrounding tissue.
According to the FDA’s (The Food and Drug Administration) statement on liposuction, other complications include: visceral perforations, seroma (pooling of serum) Changes in sensation, Nerve compression, Permanent numbness, visible scar, dimples, skin necrosis (skin death), anesthesia toxicity
Although liposuction is sometimes presented as a “permanent” solution in the sense that fat cells are completely removed, if lifestyle isn’t changed and the cause of the fat is not addressed, then remaining fat cells will grow in size and new fat cells can form. A surgery like a liposuction is a delicate procedure. During the surgery, a number of different factors have to be monitored. The patient needs to have enough to keep him or her from feeling pain, but not so much that there are health concerns. The doctor must be able to avoid causing damage to muscles or internal organs while removing the fat. The doctor must monitor the patient’s body to make sure that there isn’t any undue or excessive trauma being done.
