Various parts of the body can be used for liposuction, but injuries from the procedure are more likely to occur if it is performed on a delicate part of the body. While temporary, short-term pain and discomfort is normal after any surgical procedure, more severe or long-lasting problems can indicate that a mistake occurred.
Problems following liposuction surgery can include:
- Damage to abdominal organs
- Skin abnormalities
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Blood poisoning
