Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Complications and methods of anesthesia were reviewed in 9478 patients who had undergone liposuction surgery often in several areas. Seventy-one percent of the patients were treated under local anesthesia and the overall level of complications was extremely low. The results of the survey reflect the large number of liposuction procedures that are being performed by dermatologists with a high degree of patient safety.
