The liposuction procedure has undergone huge strides in safety over the last 10 years. London Lipo Institute has patient safety as our very top priority.
All procedures carry side effects. A few of the more common liposuction side effects are listed below. This list focuses on the more common and/or important liposuction side effects. Given the safety of our advanced liposculpture procedure, the side effects described reflects our commitment to optimising your safety – before, during and after your procedure.
Patient selection – Individuals with poor skin tone, medical problems, obesity, or unrealistic expectations may not be ideal candidates for liposuction.
Scars: All operations leave a scar. The scars that follow liposuction are covered by normal clothing. Each liposuction incision is less than 4mm in length.
Although good wound healing after this procedure is expected, abnormal scars may occur within the skin and deeper tissues. In very rare cases, abnormal scars may result such as Hypertrophic and Keloid scars. Scars may be unattractive and of a different colour than surrounding skin. Hyper-pigmentation and Hypo-pigmentation are recognised risks
Change in skin sensation – A temporary decrease in skin sensation after liposuction may occur. This usually resolves over a period of time.
Skin discolouration/swelling – Skin discolouration and swelling normally occurs following liposuction. In very rare situations, skin discolouration and/or swelling may persist for a longer period of time.
Skin contour irregularities – Contour irregularities and depressions in the skin may occur after liposuction. Visible and palpable wrinkling of skin can occur rarely. The importance of wearing of the compression garment for the recommended period of time will be emphasised to minimise the incidence of this problem.
Asymmetry – It may not be possible to achieve symmetrical body appearance from the liposuction procedure. Factors such as skin tone, bony prominence, and muscle tone may contribute to normal asymmetry in body features.
Seroma and haematoma: In very rare cases, body fluid (seroma) or blood clots (haematoma) can build up underneath the skin. Often we will need to treat this, sometimes using just a needle and syringe, or by a small second operation.
Infection – An infection is very rare after this type of procedure. You will undergo full treatment precautions include washing in an antiseptic solution for 2-3 days and taking preventive antibiotics for 3-5 days after the procedure. London Lipo Institute are proud of our INFECTION RATE OF ZERO.
Allergic reaction – In extremely rare cases, local allergies to anaesthetic, or topical iodine preparations used to clean the skin have been reported. Allergic reactions may require additional treatment. All precautionary measures are taken for your peace of mind.
LONG TERM EFFECTS – Subsequent alterations in body contour may occur as the result of aging, weight loss or gain, pregnancy, or other circumstances not related to the liposuction procedure.
The liposuction side effects following your procedure are explained fully at your consultation to help you understand the procedure in greater depth.

I had neck/jaw Lipo on Friday evening 16/10/15 after wanting it done since I was 16 as I have never had a jaw line or definition in my neck as always had a slope.The team have been absolutely fantastic. First of all arranging it on a Friday evening so I could have longer to recover over the weekend so I can go back to work on Monday. The communication from everyone has been fantastic. The procedure was great (If you can say great about a tube sucking out fat from your neck!). But seriously made me feel such at ease, comfortable and felt in such safe hands. The surgeon was so meticulous and careful which was great as the neck and jaw are visible to all. I was given a number of one of the surgeons whom I could contact if I had any queries or problems and also Michelle's contact details. This I must say has been extremely helpful. Seriously would not get that kind of patient care and attention anywhere I know and from anywhere I know of people have gone to. Great price, great customer care and attention and great professional and qualified team. Thank you to you all, it really means so much to me, its a massive life changer for me and I have all of you to thank for that! :)
