Liposuction does not carry as many risks as breast augmentation. Liposuction risks include infection, allergic reaction to anesthesia, blood clots, and nerve damage. Other liposuction risks can be friction burns, fluid accumulation, and excessive fluid loss. These liposuction risks are often directly related to incision size and the use of general anesthesia. Such liposuction risks decrease greatly when tumescent liposuction procedures are used. The tumescent procedure involves the use of tiny incisions. This greatly reduces the risk of infection. The tumescent technique also eliminates the need for general anesthesia which acts as a risk reducing factor. Other minor risks of liposuction have a direct relation to the skill of the surgeon. Following the instructions of the surgeon following liposuction can prevent minor complications such blood clotting and will help speed up the recovery process.
