Location of the Incision Sites from the Rear

■ Shoulders: Three incisions. At the lateral, medial and caudal ends of the collection of fat.

■ Buttocks: Three incisions. One in the upper quadrant and two in the lateral and medial parts of the gluteal fold.

■ When treating a problem zone a general rule of thumb is that at least three incisions are necessary, one of which should be at the lowest point to allow the tumescence solution to drain. This prevents congestion as well as prolonged swelling and infection. If it becomes apparent during liposuction that another incision is necessary, this can be made without problem, as these are microincisions that will not be visible after

6 months. Instead of sutures, Steri-Strips are applied to the incisions for 8 days.
