Abstract From 1982 to 1991, 2500 patients underwent liposuction to thin the superficial areolar layer of fat. The patients were of all ages and had different types of skin. From the results the author concludes that the new superficial liposculpting, based on the controlled scar retraction of the thin cutaneous adipose flap remaining after the treatment, allows for very good results even in very flaccid and aged skin. A digital molding of the residual fat also improves the contouring. So-called "cellulite" is finally meliorated.
