What are the risks associated with nonsurgical fat reduction?
Fortunately, major complications from nonsurgical fat reduction are infrequent. You should discuss the risks and potential complications with your aesthetic plastic surgeon during your consultation.
All procedures have some degree of risk. Risks specific to nonsurgical fat reduction include:
- Temporary redness, bruising, tingling and tenderness
- Temporary dulling of sensation or cramping
- Ultrasound devices can cause small burns; however, it is extremely rare
- Contour fullness may occur in the abdomen after cryolipolysis, but this is also rare
You can help minimize nonsurgical fat reduction risks by following your board-certified aesthetic plastic surgeon’s advice and instructions before and after your treatment.
