Possible risks of body contouring

Before you undergo surgery, it is important to understand that all forms of surgery carry risks. Some risks associated with body contouring include:

  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Separation of incision
  • Skin laxity
  • Seroma
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Myocardial infarction
  • Pneumonia

After your procedure, you should also expect some swelling and bruising and soreness around the incision area. Dr Moradi is a specialist plastic surgeon and will use his expertise to minimise scarring. However, because he will be making surgical incisions, scarring in this type of surgery is unavoidable.

I say to patients to be prepared for another operation. Even if the surgery is perfect, it's still going to loosen up.
