What is Liposuction and Abdominoplasty?
Many men and women feel the pressure to lose weight. In turn, surgical procedures such as liposuction and tummy tucks are in popular demand.
Liposuction involves the removal of unwanted body fat from many different sites on the human body. It permanently removes fat cells and can alter body shape.
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty - to give it the correct surgical name, is a procedure which removes excess fat and skin from your abdomen and then tightens your abdomen muscle. Sometimes this procedure is combined with liposuction to help shape the abdomen.
Despite the popularity of the procedures, both carry the risk of serious complications if they are not carried out correctly.
Whatever the reason for your liposuction or tummy tuck procedure, if you believe that you have suffered negligent treatment during or after the procedure, it may be possible to proceed with a clinical negligence claim.

Potential risks of liposuction and tummy tucks
As with any cosmetic procedure, liposuction and tummy tuck procedures carry a number of risks. A significant amount of trust is placed in a clinician’s hand and as such, if mistakes happen, the consequence can be life changing.
Injuries caused as a result of substandard liposuction and tummy tuck procedures can include:
- Bruising, swelling and pain;
- Lumpy and uneven results;
- Wound healing problems/Scarring;
- Bleeding under the skin known as Haematoma
This could create a need for further surgery to stop the bleeding and drain the area.
- A blood clot in the lungs;
- Anaesthetic risks including nausea and vomiting, damage to teeth, respiratory depression, nerve injury, awareness during anaesthesia and in extremely rare cases, death.
