Persistent fat that just won’t go away, even with healthy eating and frequent exercise, can be greatly improved with liposuction, a minimally invasive treatment that delivers big results.
What happens during liposuction?
Liposuction isn’t surgical, but it is minimally invasive, and incisions are involved. Before treatment, you will be given anesthetic injections to numb the area. Or, if multiple areas are being treated, you may be put under general anesthesia. (About 3 to 4 areas can safely be addressed in one appointment.)
Next, tiny incisions will be made as an access point for the cannula (the liposuction instrument). The cannula is able to both break up the fat and vacuum it out of the body. When the fat removal has been completed, the incisions will be closed, the area will be dressed, and a compression garment will be placed.
The incisions will be made very carefully in order to leave the most minimal scarring possible. The realistic amount of visible scarring will be determined by your skin quality and how many access points are made. During your consultation, more information will be discussed about the incisions.
