Often performed along with a tummy tuck or other body contouring procedure such as breast reduction, liposuction can take place with the patient under general or local anesthesia or under intravenous sedation. After injecting the operating site with local anesthetic, the surgeon makes a small incision and employs a hollow instrument called a cannula to loosen the fat before suctioning it out via syringe or surgical vacuum.

Patients considering liposuction need to speak honestly with their plastic surgeon regarding their goals and expectations for the procedure, and remember that this kind of operation is not meant as a treatment for obesity or cellulite. our prviders will take the time to explain what liposuction can and cannot do, what’s involved in the procedure and who can derive the greatest benefits from it.
