As with all other cosmetic surgical procedures, liposuction has side effects and a risk of complications that you need to be aware of.

Complications associated with Liposuction

  • Post operative infection
  • Lumpy and uneven results after the fat has been removed
  • Bleeding under the skin – known as haematoma
  • Numbness in the treated area that may last for months
  • Changes in skin colour and a loss of normal feeling in the area treated if the treatment area is prepared using a technique involving high-frequency vibrations
  • Thrombosis – the clotting of blood within a blood vessel, which can obstruct or stop the flow of blood
  • A build-up of fluid in the lungs – known as pulmonary oedema, which can occur as a result of the fluid injected into the body
  • Pulmonary embolism – a potentially fatal blockage in the lungs caused by a blood clot
  • Damage to the internal organs during the procedure

If you have undergone a liposuction procedure that you feel was carried out incorrectly or you have suffered as a result of a complication, you may be able to claim for compensation.
