Complications are infrequent and usually minor, but remember, no surgery is without risk.
You will have small scars where the cuts or incisions were made. However, wherever possible, Mr Henley makes sure that the cuts are ‘hidden’ in the small skin folds or creases, so that the scars are barely noticeable. These scars usually settle well, but occasionally become raised and lumpy. In this instance, they can take a long time to improve.
A lumpy, uneven appearance is possible at first as the remaining fat settles into its new position. Any unevenness is usually minor.
Other risks that occur with any surgery include bleeding, wound infection, chest infection and blood clots in the leg (known as a deep vein thrombosis), although these are uncommon.
