Complications are uncommon but may include:
1.InfectionInfection is rare. However, we use antibiotics to decrease the risk of infection. Serious infection is rare, and has only been reported with traditional liposuction.
2.Irregularities may occur, especially in the thigh region, but are less common than traditional liposuction.
3.Scarring since the entry points are very small, scarring is uncommon. However, the puncture points will be red for a few weeks after the treatment.
4.Burns to skinThis is uncommon. The doctors at CDC clinics are experienced in laser lipolysis, and have not encountered this problem.
5.Loose Skin Generally, the skin shrinks back after Laser Lipolysis. However, if people have very loose skin, it may not fully retract, and surgery may be necessary.
6.Bleeding Bleeding and bruising are uncommon.
7.Asynmetry If there is asymmetry after a few months, it can be corrected. There may be temporary asymmetry due to more swelling on one side compared with the other.
