Blunt liposuction cannula dissection with and without suction-assisted lipectomy
in reconstructive surgery.

Efforts continue to expand the role of blunt liposuction cannulae in flap
elevation and reconstructive surgery. Suction-assisted lipectomy to reduce the
actual volume of fat tissue present may allow the further reach and
compressibility of mobilized flaps. These instruments find the safest possible
plane for continued undermining dissection even at great distances. Applications
yet unknown await discovery.
