Abstract Liposuction has become a widely accepted and utilized technique that allows the aesthetic surgeon to improve regional definition and contour. Although the techniques of liposuction have now been extended to a variety of noncosmetic procedures as well, the application of this technique in the area of reconstructive surgery has lagged. To ascertain the applicability and effectiveness of liposuction for the revision of free microvascular tissue transfers we undertook a retrospective analysis of our free flap reconstruction cases that were revised and recontoured using liposuction. From this review of 12 cases we found liposuction to be a safe and effective technique for the delayed revision of free flap reconstructions of the head and neck region and lower extremity.
