The Lowdown On Lipo

- Cosmo Editor

Before you opt for the most popular plastic surgery procedure, know this, warns Dr Oz.

Lipo is not a weight-loss procedure, it’s for people who are close to their goal weight but want to change their shape.

Lipo is safest when you have less than 5kgs to lose. More than that, and you could encounter a life-threatening complication.

Research your surgeon carefully and make sure s/he has privileges to perform lipo in a hospital.

Ask about his/her use of the anaesthetic Lidocaine, as too much makes the procedure more dangerous.

All medical procedures carry risks. Make sure you know what these are before you sign on the dotted line.

Catch Dr Oz on SABC3, Monday to Thursday at 3.45pm.
