13 Risks You Take with Liposuction ...

There’s that lucky (or not-so-lucky number)! The number 13! As with any surgery out there, you will be taking risks and liposuction is not an exception to this rule. This type of cosmetic surgery will be taking a lot of the fat out of your body and that explains why it is so popular. It can be used in order to improve an individual's thighs, waist, legs, and/or stomach. Really, it does make you look slimmer. But is beauty really worth all of the risks? I understand that many out there would sell their souls just to lose weight and be beautiful in their eyes, but would you take these 13 risks of liposuction?

All surgeries involve an entry way in order to get inside of your body. For liposuctions, incisions will be made by a cannula. The cannula could damage the inside of the body if it is not correctly managed by the surgeon.

The canula could damage the organs in the body, like I stated in number 13, but it could also increase the risk of blood clotting, which happens when the blood becomes contaminated with fat that is carried into the stream by blood vessels that have ruptured.


The incisions that are done by the canula could cause an infection.


As you see, the physical risks are pretty real, but what do you think about those emotional risks that will come about when one learns that the doctor has damaged the appearance of the skin?

Liposuction does not work for everyone. In fact, it could do the opposite and leave the body with scars and damaged skin.


Sometimes, after surgery is over, the skin may not look right. It could fold back and have skin creases and strange dimples. Those incisions are also going to leave small scars.

There could also be a numbness and a sense of alteration that does not disappear after you have recovered.

Swelling is a complication that is not rare as is blood clots, numbness and, as I stated, infections.


During this procedure, you may not only experience damage to the skin, but damage to the nerves could be done.


Healing time could be extended.


You could go through an allergic reaction to the anesthesia or medication that is used.

Excessive fluid loss, which could lead to shock.


Death. The number is not concrete, but they range from the one hundred deaths per every one hundred thousand patients. Yes, in this context, the risk of ending your life in a car accident is greater. You would be at a bigger risk of dying by driving to the doctor’s office, but still, this is something you need to think about.

By giving you these 13 risks of liposuction, I am not trying to turn you away from liposuction as there are some advantages, such as losing weight and being healthy. I just want each and every one of you to go into this procedure with the right information and logical thoughts. Are you willing to take these chances (even risk death) to just have a chance of being skinny?
