Is there a chance of fat embolism or PE 10 days after Smartlipo performed on 3 small areas? I have been active and walking 1-2 hours every day. Am I still at risk?
Fat embolism and PE after Smartlipo
Since most smartlipo procedures are performed under local anesthesia, the risks of PE is very, very low. There is always risks of fat embolism with any liposuction procedures, with or without laser. If you are not having symptoms and you have been active, then you should be fine. If you are having symptoms then seeking medical attention as soon as possible.
SmartLipo and PE
Thanks for the question. If you surgery was done under local anesthetic, there is very little chance of PE at any point after surgery. The walking is an excellent way of decreasing your risks and of keeping the fat from returning, so keep it up! Best wishes.
