What Are the Risks of Liposuction?
All surgery has some risk. Liposuction has a good safety record and its risks are minimized when done by a specially trained, board-certified cosmestic surgeon.
Although rare, risks include infection, uneven skin contours and skin discoloration. The risk of medical problems can be minimized by avoiding extremely long procedures or excessive fat removal.
Is Liposuction Covered By Health Insurance?
Because it is a cosmetic procedure, liposuction is not covered by most health insurance plans. Talk to your health insurance company and your surgeon about the costs and payment options.
