Department of Pathology, Genius Lab, Tirana, Albania.

Introduction: Liposuction, is amongst the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures worldwide and is pretty safe with a very low incidence of major complications in the hands of skilled plastic surgeons. As a matter of fact, a faultless liposuction of the calves and ankles is near the top of the list in providing a high satisfaction rate.

Aim: We present a case of 38-year old female with severe complication from liposuction of the thighs, calves and ankles with dimples and contour irregularity.

Results: The results were very bad aesthetically with over correction liposuction of the calves and a lot of contour surface irregularity, asymmetry, dimples and grooves. We recommended her several procedures of autologous fat grafting in the calves, to improve the contour irregularities, and the patient agreed to it.

Conclusion: The surgeon should be very cautious in examining the patient in details to see if liposuction of the calves and ankles is the proper procedure to address their interest. Several times it is required to combine different refinement techniques to achieve patients' aesthetic requests and enhance their appearance.
