Liposuction is a procedure that surgically removes excess fat from a patient. Liposuction surgery can be performed on the various areas of the body. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, these areas include stomach, buttocks, neck, face, breasts, knees, upper arms, calves, thighs, love handles, and back. While liposuction is considered a safe procedure, there is a potential for some serious side effects.
Liposuction Surgical Risks
As with any surgical procedure, liposuction has the same bad side effects. Some of those side effects include bruising and swelling below the area that was treated. These two side effects after liposuction surgery can last for two or three months. Moreover, the patient is also put at risk for blood clots and infection.
Loose Skin After Liposuction Procedure
Following liposuction surgery, the patient may have loose skin in the areas that were treated. In many cases, the skin regains firmness after about four to six months when no treatment intervention was utilized. In other cases, however, the skin in these areas never regain its firmness and require surgery to remove this excess skin from the patient.
Skin Numbness After Liposuction
This side effect of a liposuction procedure happens when sensitivity is lost in the area that was treated. In many cases, after two to four months the numbness begins to dissipate. However, in other cases, skin numbness is permanent.
Fat Embolism Syndrome
This side effect due to liposuction surgery is rare but serious. The likelihood of this side effect is increased with the amount of fat that is removed by the procedure. This serious side effect can result in permanent disability or death. Fat Embolism Syndrome occurs when loosened fat becomes stuck in a blood vessel. It is crucial that this dangerous side effect is treated, or it may lead to damage to the brain, lungs, and cardiovascular system. Symptoms include shortness of breath or difficulty breathing.
