There are a lot of reasons why patients consider undergoing liposuction for themselves. It’s possible that the patient has tried dieting with exercise with continuing problems in one or more areas of their body with getting rid of fat pockets. Some other reasons would result to treat fatty benign tumors or other problems dealing with metabolism.
It’s important to understand that liposuction is not for the treatment of obesity. There are other procedures available for this if the patient is considered to be an ideal candidate for the procedure.
The liposuction procedure is performed with a small hollow tube that is generally referred to as a cannula, which is used along with a vacuum type suction device known as an aspirator. The cannula is inserted through an small incision and then moved rapidly underneath the skin in order to extract the fat. There are many different techniques that plastic surgeons use today and your doctor will explain them upon consultation.
