The Liposuction Process
Body Mark-Up: A strategic mark-up of the body to ensure optimal incision points are highlighted. test
Anesthesia: Diluted local anesthesia is infused in specific areas of your body to reduce bleeding and trauma. Prior to your procedure and for your comfort, you will be educated on the different types of anesthesia and assisted in deciding which one is best for you. Options include local anesthesia, intravenous sedation, and general anesthesia.
Incision Placement: Following anesthesia, your surgeon will begin the procedure by placing small incisions in discreet areas of your body determined during the body-mark up step. The incision can vary in size, but typically go from a quarter to a third of an inch. It is especially important that the incisions are placed in each ndividual’s natural body creases to ensure the incisions are concealed and to minimize scarring.
Fat Tissue Reduction: Following the incisions, your surgeon will start the removal of unwanted fat tissue using a thin cannula. Some fat tissue can be very tough so the surgeon will break up that fat tissue by gently moving the cannula back and forth. Once those fat cells are broken up, they are suctioned out using a pump or a syringe that is attached to the other end of the cannula.
Incision Closure: Once the targeted amount of fat tissue has been removed, the surgeon will suture the incisions in such a way to ensure concealment of the scars.
