What are the risks associated with liposuction?

The risks associated with liposuction are blood accumulations near the incisions, numbness and depressions made in the skin where fat was removed. The blood accumulations and numbness should go away on their own and any depressions in the skin you may have can easily be treated by Dr. Luria.

Are the Liposuction results permanent?
