What are the Risks and Complications?
Common side effects of liposuction include bruising, swelling, pain and numbness. Scarring will vary per individual based on hereditary factors that affect skin healing, but because the incision for chin liposuction is so small it will usually be very minimal and if with BodyTite technique, there will be no scar at all.
Most common side effects last for a brief period of a few weeks. Depending on the area of the body that was operated upon, limited mobility may also be a temporary side effect.
In some rare circumstances complications may arise due to liposuction surgery. Patients undergoing liposuction should be aware that infection, skin necrosis, contour irregularities and burns are all possible complications.
As Chin Liposuction does not require general anesthesia and is for a small area on the body, it is one of the safest liposuction procedures with a very low chance of complications.
