Every surgery has some risks and potential complications. The Surgeon's careful planning and meticulous technique typically prevents the vast majority of complications from surgery. In addition, choosing the right surgeon to perform your procedure is an important consideration in attempting to prevent untoward outcomes. Liposuction is typically a very safe procedure and the results are usually quite gratifying. Some of the risks of liposuction include contour irregularities, over resection of fat or under resection of fat. If you have had liposuction and you feel that the cosmetic result is not acceptable or if you have an obvious post-surgical deformity, please schedule a consultation to discuss your options for repair.
