Infection after SmartLipo

Infection after liposuction (in a normal health patient) is a rare occurence, somewhere below 3%. Most infections are superficial in nature and can effectively be treated with antibiotics. On rare occasions, infections can become deeper requiring hospitalization for IV antibiotics. Good luck!
