Liposuction Risks

Liposuction is a very safe process and most patients are satisfied with this procedure. And at Dr. Pasquale’s clinic in Honolulu, Hawaii, you can expect the best treatment as well as the best kind of recovery time in the scenic locales of Honolulu. But it is important to remember that Liposuction is not a needed medical procedure, but more of a cosmetic procedure. Consequently, what this means is that it’s not a necessity to complete this surgery at any given point of time. Liposuction is not like a heart surgery procedure, which has to be performed strictly at a practitioner’s advice. So, one can take time out to understand the pros and cons of this technique and find out the risks involved while understanding liposuction.

Dr. Michael Pasquale’s clinic in Honolulu, Hawaii is world class, and he is one of the well qualified practitioners for this technique. Apart from completing his residency in plastic surgery, he has also earned a 2-year training certificate from NYU Downtown, Manhattan. He aims to make every patient satisfied with the surgery and is renowned for being a surgeon who is popular due to word of mouth.

Liposuction may be performed in a doctor's office, a surgical centre, or a hospital. Because liposuction is a surgical procedure, it is important that it be performed in a clean environment to omit any kind of risk or complications. Our Honolulu clinic does not perform surgery on what may be called “dirty” cases where infections (like at hospitals) may be found. We only perform cosmetic surgery in our clinic thus minimizing the risk for infection.

Emergencies may arise during any surgery and access to emergency medical equipment and/or a nearby hospital emergency room is important. These are things that you should ask your physician before the liposuction so that you can minimise recovery time and maximise chances of a good result. At our Hawaii clinic we have complete safety equipment as in any hospital and qualified staff to handle any emergency. Queens Hospital is located nearby.

One very important part to agreeing to this procedure is to understand the risks involved before having liposuction. It is important because, certain complications are unavoidable in a very small percentage of patients and rare. Liposuction is generally considered a safe procedure with minimal risk. As example if you are extremely overweight or obese and trying to lose weight, then this is certainly not the place for you. Liposuction is not a procedure for shaping the body to replace gastric bypass and is not recommended for weight loss. It is important to note that Liposuction should not be considered as a replacement for a healthy diet or regular exercise. A good diet is always the best option along with regular exercise. You could even try wearing figure hiding garments. Yet again liposuction is not for the extremely heavy individual and increases risk. We can help you make the determination if you are a good candidate for this liposuction procedure or not.

It is only when these methods don’t work that Liposuction should be taken as an option. Hence while considering this procedure, the risk factor comes into play. Dr. Pasquale’s clinic makes sure that all these risks are stripped down to bare minimum but, nevertheless, it is a point to be considered.

Our Honolulu clinic will provide you with a complete liposuction risk assessment to make sure you are a good candidate for the procedure. We do all we can to minimize the risk to you during your liposuction procedure.

Liposuction can be a great experience and solve body fat problems which can not be solved any other way. The benefits are obvious for liposuction but equally important like all treatments the benefits must be weighed against the risk for liposuction.

Our consultations take the time to individually evaluate your needs and to spend time discuss all the risk as well as the benefits for liposuction. We will describe in as much detail as you need and want before you decide if liposuction is right for you. Dr. Pasquale and his staff have not earned their good reputation by ignoring your concerns but by spending the time you need to make a well informed decision including your consideration of the risk of liposuction.
