In brief: It is surgery
Possibilities include swelling, pain, numbness, bleeding, bruising, asymmetry, wrinkling of skin, and rarely injury to deeper structures, fat emboli, and dangerous fluid shifts.

Systemically the patient needs to stay well hydrated And have a high protein diet to heal the suctioned area.
Dr. Sharon Ann Clark
The skin remains sensitive to heat and to chemicals for the first six weeks after lipo. Hypoallergenic lotions are helpful as well as a healthy, low salt diet.

In brief: I-Lipo side effects
The major outcome is a poor result from this lipo technique! There are much better lipo types available.

In brief: Contour
Undesired results include irregular contour, removal of too much or too little fat, fluid collection under the skin, color change in the skin (rare), and (if ultrasound or laser is used) burn of the skin.

In brief: Complications
The complications of liposuction include bleeding, infection, nerve injury, numbness or hypersensitivity, contour irregularities, injury to deeper structures (such as muscle, or solid or hollow organs), fat or embolism, deep vein thrombosis, or significant fluid shifts.
However, choosing a board certified surgeon who is aware of these complications will lessen the chance of complications.

In brief: Depends
All operations have risks.
Liposuction requires proper patient selection. For optimal results, the skin over the localized areas of excess fat should be elastic--if not, the skin may become loose and irregular following liposuction. Small risks of infection, bleeding, and scarring.

In brief: Minor
Short term side effects include soreness and bruising.
There is a very small chance of infection. In the long term, there could be contour irregularities. This is far less common with a well trained, experienced plastic surgeon.

In brief: Minimal
Liposuction has few side effects when performed by an experiened and properly trianed plastic surgeon.
It is ideal for individuals who are of a normal bmi and who desire reshaping areas of their body(or face). Stubbon, exercise resistant pockets of fat are reshaped to achieve the desired contours. The goal is not to remove as much fat as possible, but to create a smooth, more pleasing silhouette.

In brief: Lipo or iLipo?
Ilipo is a laser induced alteration of the fat cells which may produce fat loss via lymphatic dissoluton.
Early results are controversial but it appears to be a very safe yet questionably effective modality for lipolysis.

In brief: Liposuction risks
Because of the risks discussed by dr. Matthew, we recommend liposuction for patients close to their ideal body weight who have focal areas of fat that have not responded to diet and exercise.
It is not a weight loss tool.
