Liposuction Risks

Liposuction comes with general surgical risks such as infection, excessive bleeding or fluid loss, and negative reactions to anesthesia. Risks specific to liposuction include nerve damage, friction burns, fluid accumulation, blood clots, and internal organ damage. Liposuction may also result in uneven skin contours and irregular wound healing.

Risks with liposuction are extremely rare, made more so with the advanced techniques offered by experienced liposuction surgeon Dr. Peña. During your initial consultation, specific risks can be discussed in full to help ensure you are making an informed decision.
