What Is Liposuction And Why Does It Matter Now?

Stacy Offei Darko

Beauty is expensive. It is now costing money and lives.

Stacy Offei Darko was the Deputy CEO of the National Entrepreneurship Innovation Programme (NEIP), she reportedly passed away four days ago.

She was said to have undergone a liposuction procedure that went wrong.

The police have currently arrested the doctor who performed the surgery, Dominic Obeng Andoh owns the Obengfo hospital at Weija in Accra.

When she passed after the surgery, the doctor, the nurses and one cleaner reportedly deposited her body at the mortuary without notifying her family.

Now Stacy’s mother, Nana Akosua Anima I is calling for justice and refuting allegations that her daughter who had a “perfect body” would undergo liposuction.

Liposuction (body shaping), or simply lipo, is a type of cosmetic surgery that removes fat from the human body in an attempt to change its shape. Evidence does not support an effect on weight beyond a couple of months and it does not appear to affect obesity-related problems.

Certain health conditions may prevent patients from being suitable liposuction candidates. People with chronic ailments such as diabetes and high blood pressure are more likely to achieve less-than-desirable aesthetic results. Individuals who have compromised immune systems and those who suffer from diabetes, poor blood circulation, heart disease, or lung disease should not undergo liposuction, as they could suffer serious health complications. If patients have recently had another surgery in the area they would like to treat, they should wait until the area has healed before considering liposuction.

Death, pain; which may be temporary or chronic, post-liposuction fat redistribution or post liposuction weight gain, bruising include some of the risks associated with undergoing liposuction.

Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, and it cannot eliminate stretch marks and cellulite from the skin. The treatment can only remove small, localized concentrations of fat. In most cases, ten pounds of fat or less will be removed from the treated area.

RIP Stacy.
