Side effects of laser lipo include standard side effects of any surgical procedure: minimal bruising may occur since the skin is breached; pain- but this is minimal and patients often drive themselves to and from a procedure and are advised some rest the follwing day ( not complysory); risk of infection because the skin is breached- this almost never occurs but just to be extra safe, patients are covered with antibiotics nonetheless. The side effects of laser lipo are minor and the procedure is extremely safe. It is performed in the doctors rooms and does not require general anaesthetic. A detailed consult is carried out by the doctor at La Visage Aesthetic Clinic prior to undertaking any laser lipo procedure – to explain procedure ; its results; post treatment care and review; go through side effect profile and answer any questions that you may have relating to the laser lipo procedure, costs, effects and/or side effects.
