What is Liposuction Negligence?
Liposuction may be a relatively common process, but this cosmetic procedure does not come without risks. Negligence occurs when the responsible surgeon and care providers fail to manage the risks. A patient may experience a delay in their recovery or even further injury as a result of negligence. Ergo, they could be eligible to make a claim for compensation.
Liposuction, according to statistics, makes up roughly one-fifth of all surgeries worldwide. In short, it initially involves breaking up fatty tissue. Next, by inserting a tiny tube under the skin, the surgeon suctions it out and sweeps around the area.
Additional smaller patches then receive treatment by way of a local anaesthetic. However, larger areas will require patients to be completely unconscious under a general anaesthetic, which carries further risks.
Liposuction negligence claims examples include:
- Introducing infection through inadequate preparation and postoperative care.
- Surgical errors, including punctured organs.
- New issues with your skin, which can become bumpy and scarred.
- Incorrect anaesthetic administration and monitoring, leading to a lack of oxygen.
- Failing to obtain informed consent.
So start by researching your plastic surgeon thoroughly. Additionally, make sure your surgeon adequately informs you of all the potential risks and complications lipoplasty might deliver. As a rule, your doctor should go through this with you before arranging surgery.
Moreover, they need to ask you about your existing medical conditions. This is critical, as they need to make sure you are a suitable candidate for the procedure.
How surgeons prepare
To prepare adequately, your surgeon has a lot to do. As part of that preparation, they furthermore need to give you a realistic idea of the risks and the possible outcome. A truly professional surgeon is doing right by you if they give you the full picture of what can happen. Glossy images of models in their advertising materials cannot be your sole guide to the surgical outcomes.
As a rule, clinics shouldn’t use tactics like offering you a substantial discount if you are wavering in your decision. Moreover, they should give you enough time to think about your choice before committing to surgery.
While a liposuction procedure may be elective surgery, you still deserve the same duty of care as any patient. We know a little something about, too, as experts of the personal injury claim process should do. Moreover, we take pride in working with the UK’s leading law society.
Common side effects
Liposuction surgery is increasingly popular in the UK – studies show procedures went up by 13% in 2015 alone.
A common question within the profession is of why this is the case? In fact, there are many reasons that a person might receive a liposuction injury. Yet in turn, there are many more reasons why it may result in them making a liposculpture negligence claim.
Below, we list some of the side effects that are particularly common for liposuction negligence claims.
- For starters, suffering bruises of flesh in the area of the body that the procedure occurs;
- Moreover, there might exist a prolonged numbness on that area of the body;
- In addition, the procedure might imprint long-term or even permanent scarring;
- One sometimes overlooked issue is the inflammation of the veins in the area, and;
- Also, the procedure might lead to certain bodily fluids escaping from the areas of the incision(s).

Having a foreign item surgically placed in your body is not without risk. However, with skilful insertion and the correct care, there is no reason it should be anything other than a success.
