Bowel Injury following Liposuction - A rare Complication of Cosmetic Surgery

Abstract

Liposuction is one of the most commonly performed surgical procedures for aesthetic reasons. It is often performed as day-case surgery and is thought to be a low-risk ‘minor’ procedure. We present a rare case of necrotising abdominal wall infection due to small bowel injury resulting in extensive abdominal wall debridement and the development of an enteric fistula.
