What happens to the resulting waste from optional plastic surgery procedures, like liposuction?

    They are considered surgical waste, and usually, a plastic surgery waste management team will pick it up and dispose of it in a landfill. Fat from the lipsuction is not considered infectious waste material, but both infectious waste materials and non infectioius waste materials from surgeries are contribuiting significantly to landfill quantities. However, there is a doctor, Craig Bittner, that has recently used the fat from lipsocution to create biofuel for his SUV.
