About liposuction

Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty or liposculpture, is a cosmetic surgery procedure which removes excess fat cells from particular areas of the body.

This procedure is used predominantly in areas where fat deposits typically build up, including the abdomen, hips, buttocks and thighs. The surgery is best used for parts of the body that are particularly resistant to exercise and diet.

Surgeons’ and clinics’ duty of care

All of the different procedures carry different risks that liposuction surgery to go wrong, meaning surgeons have a vital duty of care to ensure patients’ safety and wellbeing at every stage of the process.

This involves a high degree of accountability, negligence among those performing liposuctions can result in long-lasting physical and psychological damage to the patient. As such, clinics and surgeons are not only responsible for taking steps to minimise preventable risks, but also for telling informing patients about any potential complications that cannot be avoided.

If your clinic or surgeon has not fulfilled this duty of care, you may be eligible to make a claim for liposuction compensation.

How can liposuction go wrong?

Patients may not be able to fully see the results of liposuction until the initial inflammation has subsided, which can take several months in some cases. However, a number of telltale symptoms may offer an indication that the liposuction has gone wrong:

  • Poor body shape or contour deformity
  • Nerve damage or numbness
  • Bumpy and asymmetrical skin after the fat has been removed

Although most liposuction procedures are carried out without any complications and deliver improvements for patients, it can be physically and emotionally distressing for those who are left with any of these symptoms, leading to further serious problems.
