Liposuction – also known as suction lipectomy – is a popular form of cosmetic surgery intended to reduce weight by removing areas of fat from the body. It differs from fat transfer surgery, in that the fat is not then returned to a different part of the body (for cosmetic or health reasons).

Liposuction is usually a relatively safe procedure but if things go wrong it can lead to serious consequences.

If you have had liposuction but suffered injuries as a result of insufficient levels of care from the healthcare professionals involved, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Truth Legal’s expert clinical negligence solicitors can advise you on your rights through a free consultation, with no obligation to proceed further.

What can go wrong with liposuction?

Various parts of the body can be used for liposuction, but injuries from the procedure are more likely to occur if it is performed on a delicate part of the body. While temporary, short-term pain and discomfort is normal after any surgical procedure, more severe or long-lasting problems can indicate that a mistake occurred.

Problems following liposuction surgery can include:

  • Damage to abdominal organs
  • Scarring
  • Skin abnormalities
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Blood poisoning
  • Infection
