The Liposuction Surgery Procedure
Step 1 – Anesthesia
Prior to Liposuction surgery, medications are administered for your comfort during the procedure. The choices include local anesthesia, intravenous sedation, and general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best one for you.
Step 2 – The Liposuction surgery incision
Liposuction is performed through small, inconspicuous incisions. First, diluted local anesthesia is infused to reduce bleeding and trauma.
Then a thin hollow tube, or cannula, is inserted through the incisions to loosen excess fat using a controlled back and forth motion. The dislodged fat is then suctioned out of the body using a surgical vacuum or syringe attached to the cannula.

Step 3 – See the results
Your improved body contour will be apparent once the swelling and fluid retention commonly experienced following liposuction subside. With continued practices of healthy diet and fitness, the loss of excess fatty tissue should be permanently maintained. However, substantial weight gain can alter the results.
