Ultrasound Liposuction is an invasive procedure

Ultrasound Liposuction is an invasive procedure and has to be done in controlled environment. There are certain precautions and possible complications which a potential patient has to be aware of before they sign up for the procedure.

Ultrasound liposuction consultation ideally should be attended by the doctor who will perform the procedure. Reputable clinics take care of that but on many occasions patients can only see the surgeon right before the ultrasound liposuction procedure to mark the extent of work to be performed. This is not good for the doctor as they don’t directly know the patient and their medical history.

Initial consultation is very important for many reasons, and even more so for patients who never had anything done in regards to cosmetic surgery. Meeting the doctor and initial discussion of the treatment will give the patient an understanding of what will happen and what results they can expect.

Important part of the discussion involves understanding the risks and possible complications of ultrasound liposuction. Problems are not common but can occur occasionally and patient’s understanding allows for better control over the situation. There is a range of side effects which occur after the procedure and everyone has to cope with them.

The post operational symptoms include swelling, minor bleeding from incision points, general pain of swollen areas, limited movement, numbness and others. Those symptoms are temporary and should disappear within a few days, how long they stay usually depend on the amount of area that has been treated using ultrasound liposuction.

Common symptoms will subside but if they last longer than expected this may indicate a problem and need to be treated. There is always a chance of accidentally damaging internal organs or nerves during the procedure. The recovery after liposuction surgery takes time and requires a lot of rest especially within first few days. Taking things too fast too soon may slow down the recovery time and create complications. Certain amount of discipline is necessary as the swollen areas require compression garments to be worn day and night.

Besides the side effects there is a possibility of other complications like allergic reaction to medicines, infection of treated areas, damage to the skin, skin necrosis, fluid pockets and others. Another negative thing is the irregularities of contours due to uneven amount of fat removed. This effect may also become exaggerated in older patients as their skin is usually less elastic. Certain problems can be a result of negligence or lack of experience of the surgeon. Choosing reputable clinic or a doctor will lower the risk of complications.

It is best to be prepared for the ultrasound liposuction consultation and have all the questions at hand. Many things during this process are responsible for overall success of this treatment. Although the ultrasound liposuction treatment is standardized and has been perfected over the years, every patient i treated individually and everyone’is case is slightly different. Every patient will face a different set of challenges during this journey to a better shape.
