For years, liposuction (also referred to as a lipoplasty) was the only way to get rid of stubborn fat deposits. However, liposuction comes with a variety of disadvantages, including some side effects that can be quite harmful, or even fatal.

Liposuction works by surgically removing unwanted fat from the body. Temporary side effects include:

  • Bruising
  • Redness
  • Pain
  • Numbness
  • Limited Mobility
  • Allergic Reactions

There are quite a few side effects that some patients experience long-term, including:

  • Bacterial Infections
  • Skin Damage
  • Skin or Nerve Burns
  • Contour Issues (bumpy skin)
  • Scarring

Some side effects that can be experienced during liposuction can be fatal, or they can lead to deadly complications. Skin necrosis is rare, but it’s also a fatal complication that some experience after having liposuction. There is also the possibility of Lidocaine toxicity poisoning, which can result in a heart attack.
