IMPORTANT SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS

Like all procedures of this type there is a possibility of adverse events, although not everybody experiences them. These adverse events include infection, minimal acute inflammatory tissue reaction, pain (which may be temporary or persistent in nature), swelling and oedema, transient haematoma or bruising and transient rippling or dimple formation.

Other potential adverse events include ecchymosis, sensory/motor nerve injury, asymmetry, banding, thread migrations and palpable thread ends/knots. Material sensitivity/allergic reactions in patients following surgery may occur. The onset of any adverse event must be reported immediately.
