Background objective: Liposuction is among the most often performed aesthetic surgical treatments. Laser- and ultrasound-based systems have grown to be especially popular recently, including laser lipolysis, that has a number of benefits over classic liposuction. Some researchers contend the aspiration step is not required. Herein, we report a situation that highlights the negative effects once the fundamental surgical rule of not departing any necrotic tissue isn't adopted. Materials and techniques: We report the situation of the 50-year-old man who given a 15 cm mass within the right lower quadrant, located immediately subcutaneously, passing the midline infraumbilically, tender to the touch, with beginnings of abscess formation, who went through laser lipolysis. The subcutaneous necrotic fat was removed having a skin island en bloc. No postoperative complications happened and also the patient was problem free 6 several weeks publish-surgery. Results: Within the surgical literature, most studies on fat necrosis have centered on fat necrosis within the breast. Fat necrosis is generally a gradual procedure that is observed through the patient or physician like a mass. Radiologically, it may imitate cancer, particularly in breast growth. Complications from fat necrosis are mainly from the quantity of necrosis. Anywhere of necrosis over the body's resorption capacity may lead your body into attempting self-limitation, with effects to both physical and mental health from the patient. Conclusions: We feel that claiming that no aspiration is needed after laser lipolysis, with no necessary studies, doesn't have scientific basis.
