LIPOFILLING COMPLICATED WITH EXTENSIVE NECROTIZING FASCIITIS: A CASE REPORT
Lipofilling is a popular cosmetic procedure, meaning to enhance the volume in certain body segments (such as breasts and buttocks) and slim down others (as fat is usually harvested from the abdomen, flanks, and thighs). It represents 5,9% of all nonsurgical aesthetic procedures. Gluteal as a site of fat injection has a complication rate of up to 5,89%, with incidents including fat necrosis, gluteal erythema, infection, and fat embolism. We will present the case of a 34 years old female, who developed extensive necrotizing fasciitis of the back and thigh after undergoing a lipofilling procedure, complicated with meningoencephalitis and an accentuated deterioration of neurological functions.
