Lipo surgery process
Medications are administered for your comfort during the surgical procedure. The choices include local anesthesia, intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best choice for you.
- The 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.
Liposuction areas: Hips, belly, thighs, buttocks, back, arms, and under the chin or face to improve their shape.

Your improved body contour will be apparent once the swelling and fluid retention commonly experienced following liposuction subside.
