What are the potential risks of liposculpture?

Liposculpture is the use of liposuction to accentuate specific bodily features. This is achieved by sucking out stubborn pockets of fat and can produce some very pleasing results on many notoriously troublesome parts of the body, including the stomach, trunk and thighs. In 2014, liposuction was one of the few cosmetic surgery treatments whose popularity increased: 4,637 procedures were performed – a 7% rise on the year before.

What can go wrong?

As with any surgery, liposuction carries an element of risk and it is important than anyone deliberating having it is fully aware of this. During your Milton Keynes liposculpture consultation, Mr Sudip Ghosh will discuss side effects and risks at length.
