Fear is a word we all live with whether it is the fear of elevators or the fear of an elective surgery such as liposuction. Why is liposuction so scary? What are the true facts involved with liposuction procedures? The truth is liposuction does have a real danger for death. 19 out of every 100,000 procedures will end in death. That is 3 more than will die in a car accident. Now that is scary. 25% of all liposuction procedures will have complications and 7% will be major.
These fears are something that should be taken very seriously, by the patient, surgeon, and post-surgery support individuals. Although you are positive that you will not be one of the 19 that die, are you so sure you will not be one of those with permanent disfigurements? Some are left with lumping stomach effects that make you look fatter or an infection so bad that you will need a second or third operation.
Most fears of liposuction can be limited by choosing a hospital, doctor or clinic based on experience rather than money. Choosing a doctor that is the cheapest may just cause you to have more side effects and complications and end up costing you more than the best doctor in Europe. Common sense should play a major part in whatever decision you make.
Any surgery is dangerous where you go under general anesthesia. It is better to choose a clinic or doctor who will use a local anesthesia and not too many procedures at once. Statistics have shown us that these are the reasons for the most mistakes or complications involving liposuction procedures.
The fear of bad results is very present in just about anyone who has ever considered undergoing liposuction. There is minimal guarantee for patients that the results they see six months after surgery are going to be what they expected in the beginning. Being such an expensive service, it is only natural that patients fear that they could be paying thousands of dollars to end up with their body being sculpted into a less than desirable shape.
Yes, it is normal to have fears, but then if you are going to contemplate the truth here, then it must be stated that there are alternative to liposuction, such as eating correctly and changing your lifestyle. Walking an hour a day or jumping on a trampoline to increase lymph flow with help you to be healthy and in good shape. But many in the end will prefer to go the easy route of having a cosmetic procedure done.continue reading

Liposuction is an elective invasive procedure. Although around 80% of patients are happy with the end results, 40% of the patients wished they had researched more before beginning this sometimes fatal procedure. Many women will decide to do this surgery hoping for good health and longevity, but the truth is liposuction does not improve cardiac health; it is a cosmetic surgery only.
When choosing a doctor, look for the person who cares more about your overall health than he does his pocketbook. The doctor, who turns away business due to the fact that the woman is just too heavy to benefit from this sometimes dangerous procedure, is the doctor to listen to more intensely. Liposuction is sometimes good for women with a little weight that needs to be removed. For the very obese, they must seek other alternatives.
Like any surgery, the normal risk factors include complications from surgery, like infection, swelling, inflammation, allergic/abnormal reactions to tools or implements used reaction to medications, and more. Bruising, tenderness, and swelling are very common, and can cause fever, nausea, and similar side effects. This is especially true for the first few weeks after surgery. For many people, there are side effects, but for some, they can be severe.
