What are the health risks of liposuction to the thigh area? What are the health risks of liposuction to the body in general?
Liposuction : Liposuction of the thighs is a generally safe procedure when performed by a board certified plastic surgeon with experience in liposuction. A specific concern about liposuction to the upper inner thigh area is that liposuction in this area may have a slightly increased risk of contour irregularities as compared to liposuction in other areas of the body. This is the result of the pattern and type of fat deposition in that area. Other possible complications are the typical complications of liposuction, including seroma (tissue fluid collection), blood clots, rare risk of fat emboli (fat particles circulating to the heart or brain), changes in skin pigmentation, poor scarring, and asymmetry. To reduce your risk of complications, always follow the specific instructions of your surgeon regarding the wearing of your compression garment (usually for 3-8 weeks to reduce swelling and contour irregularities), activity level after surgery, and any medications to take or avoid. All the best, dr. Skourtis. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
