With regard to liposuction risks, like any surgery, this is a surgical procedure. The main risks are bleeding, infection, scarring. This is with any surgery, but there are two approaches to liposuction. One is under general anesthesia. The other is under local anesthesia, where your conscious. Under general anesthesia which I strongly don't prefer the risks are much more involved. There's about a one in 5,000 mortality risk from the general anesthesia and liposuction itself. And the main reason for this is that general anesthesia and liposuction the combination is a significant risk for clot formation in the legs going into the lungs. Under local anesthesia the way I do this procedure, that almost never takes place. It's a very safe procedure. However with local anesthesia one of the things that surgery has to pay attention to is the limit of lidocaine level itself. And as long as you keep it in safe limits is a very safe procedure.
