How is liposuction performed?

The procedure begins with the administration of anesthesia. The amount of anesthesia is dependent on the degree of fat being extracted and the type of liposuction being conducted. Once the body responds to the anesthesia, the liposuction is conducted using a suction device connected to a small, stainless steel instrument referred to as a cannula. Small incisions are made and the cannula inserted into the fatty areas located between the skin and muscle. The excess fat is removed using a suction pump or a large syringe. Once the fat has been removed, a smooth body contour is the result. The length of the procedure is dependent on the amount of fat to be removed.
