Abstract

In this paper, we report our experience and describe the technique of liposuction under tourniquet. This technique facilitates liposuction in the kneecap area and makes it bloodless. The approach described is effective and necessitates a relatively brief intraoperative and postoperative period, with inherently less morbidity. We obtained satisfactory results using this simple procedure.
