Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery which breaks up and “sucks” fat from various possible parts of the body, most commonly the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, neck, chin, upper and backs of the arms, calves, and back. The fat is removed through a hollow instrument – a cannula – which is inserted under the skin. A powerful, high-pressure vacuum is applied to the cannula.
Potential risk of negligence
While Liposuction is a quick way to lose weight, it is important to remember that it is surgery, and there are risks to the procedure as any other surgical procedure.
Pigmentation – occasionally skin may be damaged during the procedure. This can be caused by unusually sensitive skin or by suctioning fat from too shallow a section
Uneven Skin – if fat removal is done unevenly or too aggressively, or if your Liposuction technician is inexperienced, your skin’s profile may not be even and smooth.
Asymmetry – every once in a while, improper fat removal will not only cause uneven skin, but an uneven silhouette, as well.
Also known as: lipoplasty, liposculpture suction lipectomy, or lipo.
