COMPLICATIONS ASSOCIATED WITH LIPOSUCTION

Unfortunately, liposuction has received somewhat of a bad rap in the media. When done properly by a qualified plastic surgeon, liposuction should be a safe procedure. Most of the "horror stories" that one hears about through the media are easily explained. These cases can usually be attributed to unqualified medical practioners trying their hand at liposuction or cases in which overzealous surgeons remove too much fat in a single liposuction procedure. Complications associated with liposuction include:

  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • blood clots
  • irregularities in contour (1-5 of every 100 patients will need a minor touch up)

During your consultation, Dr. Backstein will review the complications associated with liposuction in great detail. When done correctly, liposuction is a safe procedure with excellent body contouring results.
