LiposuctionHave you suffered after a botched Liposuction?
Cosmetic Surgery Compensation
Liposuction is a procedure in which fat is removed from the body through a cannula. It is the most popular cosmetic surgical procedure after breast augmentation and is a procedure used for men and women who have larger, more stubborn pockets of fat, such as on the thighs, flanks or abdomen.
After the procedure has taken place, many people are able to return to work after a week. This does however depend on the extent of the procedure, for example, if you have had several areas of the body treated at once, then this may not be the case. There will be some swelling and bruising immediately afterwards, however scars aren’t usually a problem as the incision is so small.
What Happens When it Goes Wrong?
Indeed, Liposuction can cost up to £2,000. It should be noted that liposuction must not be considered as an alternative to weight loss; the procedure is not suitable for those who are very overweight or obese. If you are eligible for the procedure i.e. are generally a very stable weight, with large areas of fat that are proving difficult to shift, then it is important that you have a thorough consultation with the operating surgeon prior to the treatment taking place.
