Fat embolism syndrome (FES) after liposuction and lipoinjection especially gluteal augmentation is a rare, but potentially life-threatening complication. Plastic surgeons should only inject fat into the superficial planes and stay away from the gluteal veins. The three main symptoms include respiratory distress, neurological symptoms and petechial rash, but many patients fail to develop the classic triad, and there are no specific laboratory findings. As argued in this review, there is currently no specific therapy, so prevention, early detection and supportive care are the main strategies to prevent and treat FES.
