Don't go for Lipo

Lipo is not that advisable. According to a recent study liposuction, puts you at the risk of developing a rare genetic condition that can lead to fat globules entering their lungs.

Liposuction is a technique in cosmetic surgery for removing excess fat from under the skin by suction.

According to researchers, the condition, known as fat embolism syndrome (FES), is a rare but very serious complication, in which fat travels through the body and blocks blood vessels, but it is notoriously difficult to recognise and diagnose.

The authors stressed that liposuction is generally a safe procedure, but it is important for doctors to consider the diagnosis of FES, especially in patients with underlying risk factors, such as high body mass index (BMI) and fluid retention (lymphoedema).
