Abstract.

A wide range of sequels have been described as derived from a bad technique or a bad indication of liposuction. We present the cases of three patients who underwent a syringe liposuction of hips and lower limbs and had cutaneous hyperpigmentation as a sequel in the treated zone. We review the ethiopatogenic circumstances and their evolution.

Key words: Hyperpigmentation—Skin—Liposuction—Melasma—Sequels
