Having a well trained surgeon, and state-of-the-art facilities such as those at the Renaissance Body Science Institute
decrease the possibility of complications. But, it’s still important for you to know that, even though they are rare, the following complications can occur:
- Delays in healing
- The formation of fat clots or blood clots
The risk of the procedure depends on the size of the area being worked on. As the bigger the area, more liquid needs to be removed, leading to a longer operating time – thereby increasing the risk.
Another possible complication lies In the tumescent and super-wet techniques, the anesthetic fluid that is injected may cause lidocaine toxicity. This is If the solution’s lidocaine content is too high, or the collection of fluid in the lungs (if too much fluid is administered).
Due to these risk factors, I believe that all liposuction procedures should only be performed in a fully licensed surgical clinic. Often patients “feel” that a procedure is less invasive if performed in a doctor’s rooms. The reality is totally the opposite. Liposuction in doctor’s rooms is very risky and should be avoided at all costs.
The skin surface may become irregular, asymmetric or even “baggy,” especially in more mature patients. Numbness and pigmentation changes may also occur and sometimes, additional surgery may be recommended.
