Safety Standards for Liposuction
When choosing a liposuction surgeon and deciding on a procedure or procedures, there are a number of safety issues you’ll need to address. Liposuction is an invasive process and you should really think twice, consider the complex of factors that concern your safety and finally make your decision! Lets have a look at these parameters:
How Extensive a liposuction is going to be
One of the primary issues you’ll want to look at is how extensive your procedure is going to be, how many areas should be treated during a single procedure, the size of the incisions that will be done and the amount of the fat that is going to be removed! If you remove too much fat from the body at a time or if you treat many areas of the body at a time, it can exert too much trauma on your body. Surgeons disagree over how much fat is too much; many believe however that as little as 2 liters can be too much, depending on the patient’s size and the type of procedure. Since cosmetic surgery is elective and not used for emergencies, there is really no need to rush. You’re investing money into something you want, so why subject yourself to unnecessary risk? The more extensive a liposuction is the less safe it is!
Choosing the right Surgeon
The surgeon that will carry out this process should be a reputed, certified doctor with a clean record of many successfull operations! Before & After Pictures should also be evaluated and the demand on his service should also been taken into consideration. Besides its important to speak with him in order to make sure that his ethics and aesthetics criteria meets yours in order to reassure satisfactory results.

General Anesthesia VS Local Anesthesia
The previous factor is directly connected to which anesthesia method should you utilize! Lipo is done using either general or local anesthesia. While in some cases you may get a choice as to which type of anesthesia is used, liposuction using general anesthesia is usually much more extensive than procedures that are done under local anesthesia only but its also more risky while general anesthesia drugs can bring about respiratory or other issues!

One of the most important factor in keeping your lipo absolutely safe is the safety of the surgical facilities. In order to reassure your safety the hospital/clinic where your treatment will take place should present minimum infectinos risks. In order for this to be achieveable the whole operating place should clean and disinfected, all medical stuff should obviously sterilized (heat sterilization should be applied apart from cold sterilization), the equipment should be of the latest technology and the staff should be educated on how to use it! Finally its important for the clinic to be prepared for several emergencies (most important are definitely the cardiac ones)!
Please remember: there is no need to rush! Liposuction is something you want to do, not something that is necessary to be done asap! Put safety in the top of your priorities, try to satisfy all the safety standards in order to enjoythe best results with minimum risk!
