Buttocks Liposuction Side Effects

Liposuction is a plastic surgery procedure that removes excess body fat. It is also referred to as lipo, lipoplasty, or body contouring. It's a popular cosmetic surgery procedure. Liposuction is used to improve the shape or contours of the body. They want to get rid of excess fat in places like the thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen, arms, neck, and back. They've usually tried diet and exercise but still can't get rid of these fat deposits. Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. It carries serious risks and potential complications, so consult your doctor before proceeding.

Liposuction of the buttock Side Effects

Our plastic surgeons at Iranian Surgery almost never recommend liposuction of the buttock. Certainly, bulk can be reduced in the buttock with liposuction but the previously smooth skin of the buttock can become very irregular due to the dense connective tissue and compartmented nature of the fat of the buttock.  This effect tends to worsen with time.  Best to talk to several plastic surgeons experienced in this area in case you are considering such a procedure.

Liposuction Overall Risks and Side Effects

As with any major surgery, liposuction carries risks, such as bleeding and a reaction to anesthesia. Possible complications specific to liposuction include:

. Contour irregularities. Your skin may appear bumpy, wavy or withered due to uneven fat removal, poor skin elasticity and unusual healing. These changes may be permanent. Damage beneath the skin from the thin tube (cannula) that's used during liposuction may give the skin a permanent spotted appearance.

. Fluid accumulation. Temporary pockets of fluid (seromas) can form under the skin. This fluid may need to be drained with a needle.

. Numbness. You may feel temporary or permanent numbness in the affected area. Temporary nerve irritation also is possible.

. Infection. Skin infections are rare but possible. A severe skin infection may be life-threatening.

. Internal puncture. Rarely, a cannula that penetrates too deeply may puncture an internal organ. This may require emergency surgical repair.

. Fat embolism. Pieces of loosened fat may break away and become trapped in a blood vessel and gather in the lungs or travel to the brain. A fat embolism is a medical emergency.

. Kidney and heart problems. Shifts in fluid levels as fluids are being injected and suctioned out can cause potentially life-threatening kidney, heart and lung problems.

. Lidocaine toxicity. Lidocaine is an anesthetic often administered with fluids injected during liposuction to help manage pain. Although generally safe, in rare circumstances, lidocaine toxicity can occur, causing serious heart and central nervous system problems.

The risk of complications increases if the surgeon is working on larger surfaces of your body or doing multiple procedures during the same operation. Talk to your surgeon about how these risks apply to you.
