Liposuction

The concept of liposuction is surprisingly simple. Liposuction is a surgical technique that improves the body’s contour by removing excess fat from deposits located between the skin and muscle. Liposuction involves the use of a small stainless steel tube, called a cannula (from the Latin word for reed, tube, cane). The cannula is connected to a powerful suction pump and inserted into the fat through small incisions in the skin. Fat removal is accomplished as the suction cannula creates tiny tunnels through the fatty layers. After surgery, these tiny tunnels collapse and thus result in an improved body contour.
Liposuction Work
Small stainless steel tubes (called cannulas) are inserted into the body through tiny incisions in the skin. The tubes dislodge fat deposits, which are then suctioned out with a surgical vacuum or syringe. Liposuction is typically performed as an outpatient procedure at a doctor’s office or surgery center. It rarely requires an overnight stay at a hospital, unless a large amount of fat is being removed. Liposuction is often combined with other procedures, such as tummy tuck and Brazilian butt lift, to maximize results and create the desired shape.
