Liposuction Procedure Basic Steps
Liposuction surgery is performed under either local or general anesthesia. Your doctor will decide which option is best for you based on the extent of your surgery.
Then, the procedure begins:

- Fat is plumped in preparation for aspiration, while blood vessels are constricted
- Fat is removed with minimal blood loss
- Small incisions are made to insert the fat aspiration instrument, the liposuction cannula
- A laser fiber is inserted to liquefy the fat
- The overlying skin is tightened
- Swelling and bruising are minimized
- Fat is then aspirated and sculpted skillfully with a power-assisted liposuction device
- A pressure garment is applied to decrease swelling post-procedure
