No Liposuction know these 3 Top Risk Factors
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.
Is Liposuction Deadly?
According to the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), most people are satisfied with liposuction’s outcome, but there are more deaths from Liposuction than any other cosmetic procedure. In fact it is more deadly than being in a car accident. 16.1 people per 100,000 are killed in car accidents and 19 people per 100,000 are killed with liposuction. Most of the people die from blood clots after the surgery and many could have been saved with a little more knowledge.
If you knew today that you would die in a car accident, would you get in the car? Of course not. So if you know that you have a greater risk of dying in a voluntary surgery, would you still have one? There are liposuction alternatives to lose the fat and the inches with and those alternatives have no side effects or deaths involved.
One of the other complications that lead to death is perforation of vital organs. You would think the doctor would be more careful, but again this is an elective surgery and there are risks involved to include infections, anesthesia complications, and prior medical conditions, such as heart problems and post operative problems.
You have a life, you have a family and you deserve to live. So before you make a choice that you may regret later, research the risks and the dangers and weigh them against the benefits you will receive. If you decide to proceed with Liposuction, then search for a board certified doctor with a long history of success. Look for a doctor who cares.
