Liposuction is a surgery to eliminate undesirable excess of fat deposits to improve body appearance and to refine irregular or deformed body contours.
Liposuction can be used to shape areas below the chin, neck, cheekbones, upper arms, abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, calves, and ankles.
For this surgery, a liposuction machine and special instruments called cannulas are used. The surgical team first prepares the area to be operated on and administers regional anesthesia. Through a small incision in the skin, a suction tube with a sharp tip is inserted into the fat deposits and a sweep is made through the area where the fat is to be removed. The released fat is “sucked up” with a suction tube. A suction pump or a large syringe is used to perform the suction. Multiple skin punctures may be needed to treat large areas.
