How Safe is Liposuction?


Published on May 27, 2013 by

If you live in Stony Brook, Long Island, and have been considering liposuction, but aren’t sure how safe the procedure is, then you should meet with Dr. Gregory J. Diehl. During your consultation, Dr. Diehl can answer all of your questions about liposuction, explain how safe it is and how it can make a dramatic difference in your figure, especially when paired with an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck).

Liposuction is much less invasive than other cosmetic procedures. Small incisions are made in the treatment area and Dr. Diehl uses cannulas, thin hollow tubes, to suction the fat out from under your skin.

One of the risks with liposuction is contour irregularities. This will occur if the plastic surgeon uses a poor technique and over or under corrects an area. Instead of a smooth, firm region of skin, you can be left with a dimpled and lumpy section.

This is one of the many reasons you should choose a plastic surgeon who is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. A skilled surgeon will use liposuction to sculpt your chosen treatment area with precision, providing you with a safe and effective procedure.

If you are interested in how abdominoplasty and liposuction can change your figure, please contact Dr. Gregory J. Diehl to schedule your consultation with an experienced Stony Brook plastic surgeon.
