According to Dr. Park Sung Yong (Korean doctor – working at Gangwhoo Cosmetic Hospital):

Liposuction is a popular and highly effective procedure in removing excess fat from the body, helping people to gain a slimmer and more fit body shape. The liposuction procedure is carried out quickly (at Gangwhoo Cosmetic Hospital, the procedure lasts 60 minutes), the postoperative recovery is also quick, and it takes less time to rest. Therefore, this method is applied at many cosmetic facilities and chosen by thousands of customers.

Besides removing the excess fat effectively for customers, at the same time, the liposuction method has a lot of potential risks and possible complications. Hence, for customers to rest assured, we advise you to choose a reputable and prestigious cosmetic facility to have liposuction and other beauty services…

Acute complications are very common during surgery. Within the first 24 hours, there might be dangerous complications such as hypothermia, anaphylaxis, acute pulmonary edema, pulmonary embolism, heart failure, lidocaine poisoning… even death. Therefore, customers must be wise in choosing a reputable and prestigious cosmetic facility to have liposuction.

Hematoma and fluid accumulation after liposuction are the two most common complications after undergoing liposuction. The amount of serum and blood stagnation in the fat cavity can cause inflammation, when it remains for a long time, it causes infection. If hematoma and fluid accumulation are not severe, it only causes bruising and swelling, which will subside after a while.

In addition, bleeding complications can also occur after all types of surgery and liposuction – when using a sharp suction tube with the powerful destructive force of fatty tissue, which can cut the blood vessels.

There might be an infection in the liposuction area when operating in a non-sterile environment and with a poor postoperative care regimen. If the infection is not treated well, it can also leave abscesses or progress to sepsis. Skin necrosis can also occur when improper liposuction damages the vascular systems that nourish the skin.

According to Dr. Park Sung Yong, these complications are normally detected from 2 to a few weeks after surgery. Customers need to go to a medical facility soon for treatment and to overcome complications.


Because bicep liposuction is major surgery, so Dr. Park Sung Yong also advises that overweight people and those who have blood clotting disorders, diabetes, heart disease, or smoking… should not undergo liposuction.

Customers must follow the doctor’s instructions to ensure safety after liposuction as well as the best results.

  • Always clean thoroughly and disinfect the wound with cotton.
  • Take the correct dose of medication at the right time prescribed by your doctor.
  • Absorb the fluid as well as change the dressing regularly to ensure the bicep areas stay hygienic. By the time the fluid has stopped flowing, you should wrap a bandage to help the wound heal quickly, as well as to fix the liposuction areas.
  • Avoid intense exercise but do not be too lazy. You should take light exercises according to the doctor’s instructions to help get rid of the fluid faster.
