Cosmetic Side Effects

Typically, the “problem areas” targeted by liposuction are the abdomen, upper arms, and inner thighs. The purpose of liposuction is to remove the fat from these areas; however, depending on how much fat is being removed, this procedure can cause serious cosmetic deformities. Common risks include:

  • Lumpiness
  • “Dents” in the skin
  • Unevenness or lopsidedness
  • Excessive scarring
  • Pigment changes

These blemishes can cause embarrassment for liposuction patients who suffer from them. Frequently, they require patients to undergo multiple surgeries, doubling their risk of injury.

Health Risks

In addition to the possibility of cosmetic irregularities, there are health hazards associated with liposuction procedures. While this is not an exhaustive list, here are some complications associated with liposuction:

  • Infection
  • Side effects of anesthesia
  • Blood clots
  • Damage to abdominal organs

These complications can result in serious injury and even death.
