There’s absolutely not any doubt that with any cosmetic procedure there may be complications, but we will need to put into perspective whether anesthesia is actually harmful, or not.
There are quite a lot of things that, historically, have put people off liposuction when they may have considered going ahead with the process. There are numerous factors at play when liposuction goes bad. Sometimes the cosmetic surgeon may over-do an area, resulting in an uneven outcome. This can normally be placed right by one of those fat grafting techniques currently available.
Fortunately though less and less liposuction horror stories are surfacing because of newer liposuction technologies becoming available to cosmetic surgeons. At the forefront of the new wave of lipo technologies are Smartlipo and Vaser Liposelection do you call them laser pads or paddles.
The two Smartlipo and Vaser Liposelection are secure enough to sculpt the smaller fragile areas like the face and under the chin. Smartlipo utilizes laser technology to liquefy the fat, and at the hands of a trained, experienced cosmetic surgeon, has an excellent safety profile.
V.A.S.E.R. is an acronym that means Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy in Resonance. To put it simply, Vaser uses ultrasound energy to break down the fat into tiny particles that can then be suctioned out. Rather than relying only on the surgeon’s ability to correctly discover the difference between fat and other cells, the ultrasound merely targets fat, not blood vessels, connective tissue or some other structures within the body.
The actual breakthrough progress with Vaser Liposelection is the ultrasound leaves healthy, vital tissues like blood vessels and vessels alone. This then leads to less blood loss and a shorter recovery period. Better still, the incisions are very small indeed, so in time, scars are often only barely visible.
Often the risks associated with general anesthesia are prevented altogether, since these procedures can be performed using only local anesthesia, accompanied with mild sedation.
It’s usual for the cosmetic surgeon to prescribe an oral antibiotic to avoid any chance of disease as, even though Smartlipo and Vaser are more sophisticated liposuction technologies, the body has been through injury, and has to be given the best conditions in which to cure.
So, although all cosmetic surgeries carry an element of risk, liposuction isn’t as hazardous as the popular media has made it out to be.
