Liposuction – also known as suction lipectomy – is a popular form of cosmetic surgery that is traditionally chosen as a weight loss technique when more conventional methods such as diets and exercise haven’t worked as desired. It uses a suction technique or ultrasonic energy to remove fat from the body.
There are many reasons why people like to lose weight and cannot do this easily, so liposuction represents an important alternative method of weight loss. Like any surgical procedure, there are risks that should be explained to you and there are potential errors that can occur and can cause you great discomfort and distress. And where you feel that negligence has occurred to contribute to this problem, we can help you build a compensation claim to address this.
Common symptoms of liposuction negligence
Various parts of the body can be used for liposuction, but injuries from liposuction are more likely to occur if the procedure involves a delicate part of the body. While temporary, short-term pain and discomfort is normal after any surgical procedure, it can quickly become clear that something is not right and a mistake might have occurred.
Common problems following liposuction surgery can include:
- Damage to abdominal organs
- Skin abnormalities
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Blood poisoning
The money you could be awarded can cover the general discomfort of your long-term injuries, but can also contribute to the medical costs attached to these, loss of income, expenses and also the costs of any psychological effects on you.
