This case report is of a 24-year-old woman, who was referred to an orthopaedic department with sarcoma in her left thigh. Further investigations revealed, that she had previously undergone an autologous lipografting from her thighs to her gluteal area, and she had developed widespread, severe hygroma formation as a late complication to the procedure. The complication rate to liposuction and -grafting varies 7-10% with seroma being the most abundant. Knowledge of these complications is important in order to diagnose and refer the patients correctly.
