Liposuction is a procedure to which fats are extracted out from the body. There are many methods how liposuction can be performed, but whatever they are the result are the same. Fats are permanently removed and the desired contour is achieved.
But like other surgeries, liposuction has also its side effects. Most of its side effects immediately visible after the procedure is the discoloration caused by improper clean up. Damaged blood vessels leak blood and the capillaries pool under the skin. Clearing up of this discoloration depends on the severity of the situation.
