Liposuction is a popular type of cosmetic surgery, where unwanted deposits of excess fat are removed to improve body appearance and sculpt the contours of the silhouette.
It can serve for contouring under the chin, neck, cheeks, upper arms, breasts, abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, calves and ankles.
It consists specifically of the use of special instruments called cannulas. It can be done with either general or local anesthesia. Through a small incision in the skin, a suction tube with a sharp tip is introduced in the fat deposits and scanned across the area where the fat to be extracted is located.
The dislodged fat is “sucked” through a suction tube. A suction pump or syringe provides large suction action. It is possible that several punctures are needed in the skin to treat large areas. The surgeon can address the areas to be treated from several different directions in order to achieve the best results.
It can be done for cosmetic reasons or for reasons of health, but it is always important to consult an expert. You never want to undergo such surgeries in secret or in non-specialized places.
