Video Overview

Is liposuction safe? All surgeries have some risk; however, liposuction with the tumescent technique has an excellent safety record, with hundreds of thousands of patients treated without any serious complications. Tumescent liposuction does not have the risk of general anesthesia, so it is considered even safer than traditional liposuction.
