Suction-assisted lipectomy has become an increasingly popular procedure, being one of the most frequently performed aesthetic procedures in Korea. Serious complications of suction-assisted lipectomy are uncommon but aesthetic problems are often troublesome. Here we report a patient with multiple abdominal masses composed of fat necrosis with fibrosis after suction- assisted lipectomy that was treated with excision. We also discussed and deduced the cause of its complication because plastic surgeons are liable to overlook this rare complication.
Key Words: Suction-assisted lipectomy, Multiple abdominal masses
