*Individual results may vary.

Every year, about 500,000 Americans undergo liposuction. There are no local statistics available, but that national total includes thousands of patients in the Fort Lauderdale area. A remarkably high percentage of these patients walk away from their procedure happy with the results.

This is because liposuction is both exceptionally effective and thoroughly safe. Over many years with hundreds of thousands of patients per year undergoing the procedure, liposuction has proven itself in the medical community.

Every surgery carries with it some risks, and liposuction is no different. Risks from liposuction are rare, but include:

  • Infection
  • Numbness at the treatment area
  • Fluid accumulation
  • Fat embolism
  • Swelling
  • Skin discoloration

One of the best ways to minimize these already-rare risks is to choose the best possible liposuction surgeon to perform your procedure. Dr. Jon Harrell at the Weston Center for Aesthetic Medicine and Surgery has decades of experience with plastic surgery and has performed countless liposuction procedures.

He’ll answer all of your questions about liposuction and ensure you get the safest possible procedure.
