Liposuction surgical procedure

It's important that you choose a medical negligence lawyer who has the experience and knowledge to deal with your compensation claim effectively.

When it comes to removing excess fat, liposuction is an incredibly popular plastic surgery technique which is used widely right around the UK. Although liposuction is a fairly common surgical technique, it is still a dangerous one as it involves working with very delicate areas of the body and any small errors in these areas can lead to serious consequences.

When it comes to surgery, you expect to receive the best service that you can and expect that your surgeon will take good care of you. If you feel however that your surgeon has been negligent when it has come to this, then you may be eligible to make a compensation claim.

HOW DOES THE LIPOSUCTION SURGICAL PROCEDURE WORK?

Liposuction is a technique which is used to extract excess fat from a whole range of areas around the body. There are around six different types of surgical technique which can be used when it comes to liposuction, but the most common types tend to be suction–assisted or ultrasound–assisted. The former is a very simple method which involves the insertion of a small straw–like device through the surface of the skin, this device is used to break up the fatty cells in the given area of the body. A vacuum is then placed on the end and this is used to draw the fat out of the body.

In the ultrasound–assisted method ultrasound vibrations are transmitted through the body to help break up the fatty cells in areas where they might be particularly tough, such as in the back. The suction–assisted liposuction method is then used to remove these cells.
