What are the potential medical complications that may appear after or during a liposuction procedure conducted in Birmingham?
While liposuction, or lipoplasty, is generally considered a rather simple and safe surgical procedure, it is very important that the patient realizes both the benefits of the operation as well as its limitations and possible risks. Liposuction is a form of cosmetic surgery that implies the excision of unwanted fat through a small incision performed by a cosmetic surgeon. When performed properly, it can produce incredible aesthetic results, giving the patient an overall leaner and younger appearance. On the other hand, the Renew Skin & Health Clinic team of medical experts warns against randomly choosing a clinic since there are considerable medical complications that are generally associated with lack of experience or the use of inadequate instruments. It is very important to know and understand the risks of liposuction in order to better avoid them.
Infection is a very real possibility if the cosmetic surgeon is inexperience or if he works in an improper environment. If correct post-operatory care is not provided by the medical staff, the chance of infections occurring increases considerably. Infection can sometimes lead to even more serious complications, such as necrotizing fasciitis or toxic shock syndrome, making very important to identify and treat early. Embolism may also occur when fat tissue is loosened during the procedure and accidentally reaches the blood vessels. In such cases, it is essential that the patient requests immediate medical assistance since the fat tissue trapped within the blood vessel can produce very serious damage if left unchecked. There have been instances when patients have been physically disabled or have even died due to untreated embolism. An inexperienced cosmetic surgeon is also more likely to accidentally cause visceral perforations, which occur when the surgeon punctures an internal organ with the cannula while performing the liposuction procedure. Skin necrosis can also occur in certain cases. This means that the skin above the liposuction site becomes necrotic, changes colour and eventually becomes separated from the rest of the body. Of course, there are other medical complications that may arise if the medical team operating you is not experience, not to mention that this aspect will surely affect the aesthetic quality of the end result.
