I am 4 weeks post-op (love handles and abs) and just now I am experiencing the pins and needles feeling. I slept (or atleast tried to) for the first time last night without the compression garment and I won't be doing the same tonight. I go for massages every other day, both ultrasound and hand, and they still hurt like crazy. Today was number 18 and I think I'm going to wait for the nerves to finish "waking up." The results are incredible, I had 16 pounds removed (I'm 6'2"), and the love handles are gone, as well as the belly. Would I do it again, yeah, but would dread it greatly. Not to say that misery loves company, but I feel much better to know I am not alone in this long and slow recovery.
Most patients experience bruising, swelling, and pain when have a chin liposuction. Other possible side effects include scarring, infection, and rarely skin necrosis.
"According to my research, liposuction does not have any risks that are specific to liposuction. However, any surgery involves risk. Avoiding excessive liposuction can decrease these risks, as can not scheduling liposuction with other procedures, such as a facelift. Some risks associated with surgery include bruising, swelling, infections, blood clots in the lungs, and nerve damage."
Any form of liposuction can be painful, depending on the patient and the procedure. Generally pain is felt during the recovery and healing stage, not during the procedure itself.
"There are many long term side effects of liposuction. Some of these include: dimpling, scars, pain, and numbness. More serious side effects can occur from liposuction on the thighs."
Liposuction will vary in pain depending on the individual.Most patients say that it is more discomfort than it is painful.Doctors will usually perscribe pain meds to help alleviate the pain.Newer techniques and improved technology like the UAL and the tumescent technique, help patients not feel as much pain.
Proper aftercare is important after liposuction surgery. Heart problems and infections can result from liposuction. Also, burns, embolisms, cardiac arrhythmia, edema, and nerve compression as well as the healing of the puncture wounds are additional risks.
In my opinion it is safe. There are risks associated with any surgical procedure. I believe it is important for you to make a well informed decision. I am providing a link that has a lot of information about the liposuction procedure. http://www.webmd.com/skin-beauty/liposuction
The signs of liposuction infection are the same as any surgical infection. Increased pain, swelling, redness in the area. If it progresses it can lead to systemic effects of fever or weakness.
There are many different risks associated with liposuction. One is swelling and pain at the site of the surgery. Another is burns located at the site of the surgery. Another is toxicity that can cause dizziness and vomiting following the operation.
The pain is unbearable.
There is not reason that a man couldn't subscribe to the liposuction procedure if the need were present. The amount of body fat is more predominate with women, and consequently more associated with women.
