Liposuction, probably the most performed invasive fat removal procedure, involves the extraction of the fat cells from the body with the help of a little cannula applied to a surgical vacuuming machine. Liposuction procedures of today are considered quite safe and the patients are promised to return to work within 2 days. However, no matter how safe liposuciton procedures are, ill effects of liposuction can not be ignored because it’s still a cosmetic procedure. Possible side effects are inevitable when it comes to speaking of cosmetic surgeries like liposuction.
There are actually a couple of side effects whic hare associated with fat removal surgeries (liposuction). Foır example, almost every liposuction patient is expected to suffer from swelling. This typical complication occurs when the body fluids can’t station under the people’s skin. Swelling may be different based on how these patients take care of their wounded body during the early days of liposuction recovery.
Inflammation is not so much common as swelling is. However, there is always risk of inflammation during recovery. Especially if you move your wounded body too often, you will increase the risk of severe swelling and inflammation at the same time because swelling generally occurs after inflammation.
There is a really annoying side effect of liposuction. Many liposuction candidates stated that liposuction may cause loss of sensation over the surgical area. Loss of sensation situations are completely temporary, however, some people claimed that they suffered from such complications for more than 2 years. This means that you may suffer from such complicaton for even 2 years, which is really a big number for a full recovery.
You will also need to stay away from sunlight during a couple of months after the surgery because you would not want to suffer from permanent scarring over your surgical area. You can apply sunscreen on your liposuctioned area to protect your body from sunlight.
