Results: two hundred and three patients (189 females and 14 males) with the age between 14 and 75 years underwent liposuction in 328 different sites. Flanks (28%), external of the thigh (20%) and abdomen (17%), and neck (1.8) were the most and least common sites, respectively. Liposuction was accompanied with other surgeries in 71 (35%) of the patients, 63,3% of which had dermolipectomy. Local anesthesia was accomplished in 157 patients while general anesthesia was performed in the other 46. Eighty nine patients (44%) were classified as ideal, 93 (46%) as moderate and 21 (10.3%) as sub ideal. The amount of the suctioned fluid and fat varied between 50 to 7000 cc. mortality was not reported in any of our subjects were general including hecatoma, seroma, infection, hypovolemia and transfusion (8%) and specific such as insufficient suction and bulging dimpling and laxity (20%) ; the specific complications were managed using the secondary liposuction (20%), fat injection (10%), polyarcylamid injection (7%) , triamsinolon injection (12%) and skin resection (12%). The results demonstrated the reported complications to be more frequent in class II and III compared with class I (36 and 70% vs. 9%). Moreover, specific complication had a statistically significant correlation with the patient's class; however the general complications did not revealed such a relation, for instance hypovolemia was significantly related to the volume of the fluid and fat injected.

Discussion: more than 90% of the patients were satisfied with the outcome of the operation. It should be noted that complication was seen in only one of the men enrolled in this study: the reported bulge was managed by injecting triamsinolon. The fewer rate of complications in men could be due to lower age and acceptable skin turgor in this group of men in the other words because they were all classified in the ideal class. Thus, it could be concluded that the surgeons' knowledge of anatomy and skill, accurate patient election, using a convenient technique, utilizing garment following an operation, making the patient begin the active life as soon as possible are all important in lowering the surgical complication and improving the results.
