Risks and side effects of lipomatic are as follows:
The risks during surgery include:
. Nerve damage
. Puncture wounds or injuries to other organs
. Anesthesia complications
. Burns from equipment, such as ultrasound probes
Any major surgery carries a risk of bleeding, infection, and an adverse reaction to anesthesia.
The risk of complications is usually associated with how large the procedure is, as well as the surgeon's skills and specific training.
The following risks, unpleasant side effects, or complications are possible:
. Pulmonary embolism: Fat gets into the blood vessels and travels to the lungs, blocking the circulation in the lungs. This can be life-threatening.
. Pulmonary edema: Sometimes, when fluid is injected into the body, it accumulates in the lungs.
. Allergic reaction: The patient may be allergic to medications or materials used during surgery.
. Skin burns: The cannula movement may cause friction burns to the skin or nerves.
. Severe bruising: This can last for several weeks.
. Inflammation: The swelling may take up to 6 months to settle, and fluid may continue to ooze from the incisions.
. Thrombophlebitis: A blood clot forms in a vein, causing inflammation and further complications.
. Contour irregularities: If there is poor skin elasticity, if the wound heals in an unusual way, or if fat removal has been uneven, the skin may appear withered, wavy, or bumpy.
. Numbness: The affected area may feel numb for a while, but this is usually temporary.
. Infections: Rarely, a skin infection may occur after lipomatic surgery. Sometimes this needs to be treated surgically, with the risk of scarring.
. Internal organ punctures: This is very rare.
. Death: Anesthesia involves a small risk of death.
. Kidney or heart problems: As fluids are being injected and or suctioned, the change in the body's fluid levels may cause kidney or heart problems.
The risks during recovery include:
. Changes in skin sensation and feeling
. Skin color changes
. Problems with healing
. Problems with the shape or contours of the body
. Wavy, dimpled, or bumpy skin
. Numbness, bruising, pain, swelling, and soreness
. Fluid imbalances
