What Are the Side Effects of Body Contouring?

Body contouring is a medical procedure done to an individual for removal of excess weight. The procedure helps in shaping the body through removal of fats by a doctor from the thighs, abdomen, and hips. If you are in Scottsdale AZ and need to get rid of excess weight, Ciao Bella is here for you.

Despite the benefits associated with the procedure, some side effects come with it. Therefore, it is vital that one understands the side effects before undertaking the procedure. Herewith are side effects associated with body contouring.

• Excess Fluid

The procedure leads to trapping and accumulation of excess fluids in the body. Some tubes are used to drain the fluids from the body. In the severe circumstance, excess fluid may be spread across various parts of the body. In such a case, the tubes will be placed for some weeks.

• Swelling and Bruising

Swelling and bruising are the most common side effects associated with body contouring. Considering that a significant amount of fats are removed from various parts of the body, the body then responds by showing signs of swelling and bruising. Fortunately, the effect is neither permanent nor dangerous but disappears after a few days.

• Anesthesia Related Risks

Some patients who undergo the procedure are likely to experience nausea, a typical reaction to anesthesia. Luckily, the effect is not too dangerous, but it is essential to be informed of some other risks since adverse anesthesia reactions are life-threatening.

• Exposure to Infections

Large wounds that result from removal of excess fats in the body exposes it to more infections. Notably, if the wound does not heal properly, the risk is further increased. Besides, if the patient has some skin condition during the healing process, he/she is likely to suffer from more infections. Also, if the patient experiences allergic reactions during solutions and dressing, infections may occur. Therefore, it is vital to have post-surgical care.

• Soreness

Considering that a large number of body tissues and skin are removed, the patient will experience some soreness in the treated areas. This sensation, however, will pass but if it remains, there is a likelihood of an infection.

• Scarring

It is a common side effect of the procedure. The patient must be aware that this effect is permanent. However, a competent Scottsdale plastic surgeon will try as much as possible to keep them inconspicuous.

I was so pleased with the honesty and concern for my best interest that not only did the Dr. provide but also Rosie. They want you to be completely happy with your results and offer an honest opinion of what procedures will help you obtain that result. The nurses are so friendly and helpful before and after the procedure. I would and will refer Dr. Zavala to my friends and family.

Every time I came to the office the whole staff was always very nice and welcoming. The day of my surgery the nurses took great care of me and made me feel comfortable. The doctor is very nice as well. Also my boy did not react well to one of the medications and Dr. Zavala kept me longer to make sure I was ok and the nurses kept a close eye on me. They were all so sweet. I am very thankful for that!
