Liposuction (commonly called Lipo) is a procedure that improves the body’s shape by removing excess fat from deposits located between the skin and muscle. In the Liposuction procedure we use a small stainless steel tube, called a cannula to remove fat. The cannula connects to a powerful suction pump, which we insert into the fat through small incisions in the skin. We remove fat with the vacuum like effect created by the suction. The cannula creates small tunnels where the incisions are that allow us to remove the fat. These tunnels will disappear during the healing process and with the fat removed, the patient has a better, smoother shape. We perform this procedure with a local anesthetic. Patients report being completely comfortable during this surgery and usually do not remember anything.
