All surgical procedures have a certain level of risk with potential complications. Fortunately we have knowledgeable and experienced board-certified surgeons so these instances are rare.
The anesthesia used by XSculpt are provided by certified nurse practitioners and physicians whose primary goal is your safety. Almost all of the procedures performed by XSculpt do not require a general anesthetic, thereby minimizing your risks.
Specifically with ButtSculpt the more common issues that occur is asymmetry or irregularities in the skin in either the injected or harvested areas. If any of these occur, a complimentary revision may be required. Bleeding, hematomas (blood collections), or infections are more serious problems that can occur which would require surgical intervention. Blood clots can also occur which are minimized by frequent walking immediately after the surgery. Fortunately these problems are rare and can be avoided with good postoperative care. Some amount of swelling and bruising at any of the surgical areas are expected following the procedure and resolve with time.
The most serious complication associated with procedures that involve fat transfers and fat injections is called a fat embolism. A fat embolism occurs when a globule of the transferred fat enters a blood vessel. The fat globule then travels through the blood vessel to different parts of the body such as the lungs, heart, or brain. It is for this reason that it is so important that your surgeon has the appropriate training, intimate knowledge of the anatomy, and experience with performing a Brazilian Butt Lift. Even when all of the appropriate safety measures are taken, problems can occur but with the right surgeons like those at XSculpt, these risks can be minimized. The XSculpt surgeons are board-certified and extensively trained in this procedure.
