Liposuction Risk Assessment Tool Unveiled
A new mobile app may help improve liposuction outcomes by calculating individual patient characteristics and risk factors to reveal the maximum amount of fat that should be aspirated. Olivier A.

The input variables for adjusted risk include: surgeon experience, patient age, medical history, number of areas to be treated, estimated OR time, other combined procedures, and variables known to be associated with elevated deep thrombosis risk. For more information, visit .
