Liposuction surgery is one of the two most common procedures performed by plastic surgeons.
There were over 3,000 liposuction procedures carried out in 2012, the cost varying depending on the extent of the treatment performed.
The parts of the body most commonly treated by liposuction are the arms, inner and outer thighs, stomach, hips, buttocks, knees and chin.
Power assisted liposuction, also known as electronic assisted liposuction, is similar to ultrasound assisted liposuction but instead of an ultrasonic device, a device that transmits rapid vibrations is used to break the fat down. This method of liposuction can speed the removal of fat and is often used to allow the surgeon to better control movement and shaping.
The risks of liposuction include;
- Blood clots
- Nerve damage
- Scarring/abnormal scarring
- Lumpy and uneven areas
- Pulmonary embolism
- Damage to internal organs
- Skin burns
If you have suffered from any of the above health issues following liposuction surgery and your surgeon either didn’t fully advise you of the risks beforehand or did not take sufficient care during surgery, you may be entitled to compensation.
