    Here are possible side effects of a typical liposuction treatment according to Wikipedia

    A side effect, as opposed to a complication, is medically minor, although it can be uncomfortable, annoying, and even painful.

    Bruising: can be painful in the short term, and should fade after a few weeks.
    Swelling: should subside gradually over a month or two.
    Scars: will vary in size depending on the particular procedure, and should fade over the weeks. Scarring is an individual thing, partly dependent on heredity. For some, scar healing may take as long as a year.
    Pain: should be temporary and controlled by either over-the-counter medication, or by a prescription.
    Numbness: sometimes persists for a few weeks.
    Limited mobility: will depend on the exact procedure.
    There could be various factors limiting movement for a short while, such as:

    Wearing a compression garment
    Keeping the head elevated
    Temporary swelling or pain
    The surgeon should advise on how soon the patient can resume normal activity.
