Liposuction Risk

Liposuction risk is always present and like any surgical procedure risks are to be taken into consideration no matter how modern or how adept a cosmetic surgeon is. During the 1980’s liposuction became extremely popular in the United States, it became the cosmetic surgery of choice for those who wanted to get rid of their unwanted fats in certain parts of their bodies and we’re not just talking about overweight or obese persons’, we’re talking about people who were not just happy or contented with the body they have. The human body variedly has fat cells that are placed all around the body and in most instances these fat cells are located in the abdomen, the thighs and hips and the buttocks and arms. These fat cells store fat by expanding and when a person is eating too much and is living a sedentary lifestyle then the fat cells continually expand and grow creating those bulging, unsightly body parts that most people want to get rid of.

Most of the fat cells of a person are located just under the skin, now most of these fat deposits cannot be easily removed by exercise or dieting alone and are actually resistant to such activities, this is where liposuction surgery comes in, and liposuction removes these fat deposits permanently by sucking them out through cannulas attached to rubber hoses that are themselves connected to a machine that creates a vacuum to suck out the fatty deposits. The good thing about liposuction is that the fat removed is permanently gone, since adults cannot anymore produce new fat cells, therefore the form and shape of the area of the body treated with liposuction is easily maintained.

Liposuction risk usually is about complications brought about by not fully disclosing your medical history to your cosmetic surgeon and not following instructions or procedures given to you by your surgeon before and after liposuction. Most liposuction risk are brought about by the particular technique or method used, for example seromas, these are cavities under the skin where the fat was removed through liposuction that get filled up with excess tumescent fluid, these can be unsightly and a major source of discomfort, skin wrinkling or dimples in inappropriate areas of the body and even infections that can lead to death. Laser liposuction if not properly carried out can lead to burns and blisters and even tissue and nerve damage if the heat energy is not properly regulated. Liposuction risk also includes cardiac arrest and allergic reactions from the anesthesia during the surgical procedure itself.
