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:
- Separation of incision
- Skin laxity
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Pulmonary embolism
- Myocardial infarction
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.
