There are a lot of possible side effects that you may get once you undergo liposuction. Although it is considered medically minor, it can be very uncomfortable and sometimes painful. Bruising, swelling, numbness and pain are some of the after effects of liposuction but these may only take up to a few weeks to heal and you will be up and running in no time.
Limited movement may also occur after an operation since the need to use compression garments is often needed to cover the part where excess fat has been removed. Your surgeon can give you advice on when you may resume normal activities.
What Are The Dangers
Like any other form of surgery, there are risks which may occur that are beyond temporary side effects. During the consultation process it is more likely that the surgeon has mentioned the possible dangers of undergoing liposuction.
Complications may include allergic reactions to medications or equipments used during the surgery. During liposuction many puncture wounds are made for the insertion of cannula, these may result to infections from bacteria. Skin and tissue damage may also happen due to the misuse of the cannula.
Other possible complications may include burns, puncture of internal organs, fluid imbalance and contour irregularities and some of these may result in death. So never hesitate to consult your doctor before undergoing liposuction to ensure your safety and health.
