Liposuction in general is considered a safe and non-invasive plastic surgery procedure. However, as a surgical procedure, there are some inherent risks to any liposuction surgery. When it comes to the risks of chin liposuction, the procedure shares many of the same risks as all lipo surgeries such as:

  • Fluid accumulation
  • Unsatisfactory result
  • Infection
  • Complications associated with anesthesia or lidocaine
  • Numbness
  • Internal puncture

Chin lipo performed by Dr. Santos comes with few additional risks and Dr. Santos uses techniques to minimize the above listed risks. For example, Dr. Santos utilizes local anesthesia to cut the risks of anesthesia. This also often results in a shorter recovery time. It is also important to find a facial plastic surgeon with the proper credentials. Choosing the right facial plastic surgeon to perform chin liposuction can largely reduce the risk of complications or a bad result.

Dr. David Santos has performed hundreds of chin liposuction procedures and uses the newest techniques in local anesthesia to cut risk during liposuction. To schedule a consultation with Dr. Santos, call us at 206-430-1035 or contact us online
