Things To Consider Regarding Risks Of Thigh Liposuction

Liposuction might appear like a wonder treatment for intractable cellulite. Despite everything, a number of serious risks or issues are linked with this cosmetic surgery. Liposuction on the thighs might seem outstanding at first. And people take the whole point lightly thinking about the operation is simple and quick. But don't forget that different kinds of infections, seromas, as well as irritating allergic side effects can actually double (or worse triple) the trouble - especially the recovery time.

Allergic Reactions

Liposuction surgery generally is carried out keeping the patient under anesthesia. Drugs used for anesthetizing patients (e. g. barbiturates or ketamine) could cause some serious and even lethal allergic reactions.


Since liposuction calls for incisions into the thighs, there’re always chances that harmful bacteria will enter in the healing course. When those wounds aren’t kept clean enough, the result might be even more serious infections.

Blood Clots

Oftentimes after liposuction, people try sitting or lying down for too long. Unless recommended by the surgeons, the operated patient must not do that. A much better idea is to be up, moving and walking all around for preventing the blood clots. Since, clots occur within the legs as well as lungs for a long span of inactivity; this can cause some serious health hazards. Same applies for those situations when lots or lungs are left untreated for too long.

Irregular Shape

This is one of the ugliest liposuction side effects and happens when equal quantity of fat isn’t extracted from both the thighs. Just imagine how a woman will look with thighs shaped horribly uneven. Also, when the surgeon lacks the expertise and training, results after liposuction would turn out to be lumpy and/or abnormally shaped thighs.

Extra Skin

When the surgeons remove large quantity of fat, their skin might become permanently stretched for making room for the fat which isn’t any longer present in your thighs. For getting rid of such extra skin, it might be essential that you get ready for yet another surgery. And needless to say, another surgery would mean yet another chunk of anesthesia, with more risks of diseases from those open incisions.

Overall, these are among the most prominent liposuction side effects .
