FAQs About Liposuction Negligence Claims

What is liposuction?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure to remove excess and undesired fat from beneath the skin's surface using a vacuum.

The procedure is performed by first administering a local anaesthetic to the area to be treated, although sometimes a general anaesthetic is used. After initial incisions are made, a cannula is inserted and moved backwards and forwards to suck the fat out; finally, the incisions are sutured shut, resulting in small scars.

Liposuction is most often performed on fat deposits in areas of the body that do not respond to diet and exercise, which can sometimes be due to inherited tendencies to store fat in certain spots. Common examples include the thighs, abdomen and buttocks in women, as well as the lower waist and chest in men.

Generally, this form of surgery is intended as a spot reduction and body contouring process, rather than a weight loss method, but a reduction in clothing size is usually achieved.

What is tumescent liposuction?

Tumescent liposuction is an alternative to conventional liposuction methods, in which salt water containing an anaesthetic and a small amount of adrenaline is injected beneath the skin to shrink the blood vessels.

This technique usually results in a reduction in postoperative pain, swelling and bruising, and is generally seen as easier for the patient, as it can be performed as an outpatient procedure with no need for a general anaesthetic.

What are the potential complications of liposuction?

As with all forms of surgery, liposuction carries a number of potential risks, although they are relatively uncommon. These include:

  • Scarring and swelling
  • Bruising, bleeding and friction burns
  • Infections
  • Increased or reduced sensation in the affected area
  • Allergic reactions

Once the liposuction is complete, the fat will not return unless the individual gains weight; there is a misconception that fat is redistributed to other parts of the body following the procedure, but this is untrue.

Although complications from liposuction are rare, disappointment with the final result is a more common issue, whether this is due to an unwanted outcome like an excess of loose skin, or a misalignment of expectations over what the result would look like.

If you feel that your liposuction was botched due to medical negligence, or that the potential risks and likely outcomes were not properly communicated, you may be able to make a claim for compensation.
