Dangers of Liposuction resulting from Medical NegligenceLiposuction’s can be dangerous for a number reasons. For one you are permitting a vacuum like object to enter into your body for the purpose of removing fat. This vacuum must maneuver around sensitive bodily organs, which can be damaged if improperly managed. In certain cases the doctors who perform the procedure may be inattentive to the fact that this device can lacerate or puncture vital organs. In other cases liposuction patients were left with medical instruments or surgical instruments in their bodies after surgery. Removal of these instruments required secondary surgeries which put the patient through considerable amount of pain and suffering to correct. Other dangers include anesthetic malpractice where incorrect doses of anesthesia are given to patients. In such cases there is significant damage to the brain and body that can result. These injuries can leave you permanently disfigured or disabled. In certain cases patients are left bed ridden without any help.
