Risks And Side Effects of Liposuction

Every surgical procedure involves a certain amount of risk and there are a number of side effects associated with treatments such as liposuction. During the consultation that you will have with your plastic surgeon in Mexico, he will explain these to you and make sure you know what course of action is required should any complications arise. It is very important that you follow both pre-operative and post operative instructions so that your liposuction recovery is as safe as possible. The initial consultation is also a good time to establish if you are a good candidate for liposuction and if you will be able to physically and emotionally handle the treatment.
Here are some liposuction risks and side effects that you need to be aware of:
Risks and Side Effects of Liposuction During Surgery

It is dangerous to carry out too much liposuction in one day because the body cannot handle such a large amount of trauma. It is best to space treatments out and give the body a chance to recover

Unrelated surgeries should not be carried out at the same time as liposuction for the same reason as above

Infection, bleeding, skin ulcerations and nerve injury

Skin necrosis (death)

Adverse reaction to the anaesthetic (both local and general)

Injury to abdominal organs during abdominal liposuction

Blood clotting

Migration of fat clots to other organs


Risks and Side Effects of Liposuction After Surgery

Bruising, swelling and numbness

Skin irregularities, dimpling and wrinkling. This happens when too much fat is removed from under the skin.

Contour irregularities. Liposuction is not always a precise technique and sometimes too much or too little fat is removed. Some parts of your body may look awkward in relation to the rest of your body after liposuction.

Saggy skin, this can be removed with another procedure later


Change in skin pigmentation

Fluid accumulation

Unrealistic expectations of the result may lead to the patient desiring more and more surgery


Liposuction is a relatively safe surgical procedure, regardless of whether it takes place in the US or Mexico. Although you need to understand what your body will experience during the treatment, liposuction can ultimately make you look and feel amazing. Add to that a fun and affordable holiday in Mexico and you have yourself a wonderful opportunity to get the figure you always wanted!
