Liposuction is the removal of the fat layer underneath the skin (subcutaneous adipose tissue) with the use of suction.
Liposuction can be used on a myriad of different areas that have unwanted fat such as the stomach, flanks, buttocks, arms, etc.
It is a minimally invasive procedure. It requires anesthesia or numbing medication called tumescent anesthesia which is placed underneath the skin. You are awake for the entire procedure. After the anesthesia is delivered underneath the skin, small incisions are made for the cannula (tube) to be introduced to remove the fat. Afterwards, a compression garment is needed to help with swelling and post-procedure drainage of the tumescent or numbing fluid.
