What does happen During Liposuction?

When a small amount of fat has to be removed from the patient body then surgeon normally uses local anesthesia. There are two main liposuction methods that are employed in cosmetic surgery clinic.
1. Wet Lipo
In this method, a surgeon injects a fluid mixture into the area from where fat has to be removed. This fluid mixture comprises of a salty solution, adrenaline and local anesthesia. Main purpose of injecting this fluid is to decrease bleeding, swelling and bruising after surgery. In addition, this injection makes fat cells removal quite easy. After this injection, surgeon makes an incision or small cut into skin and inserts a small metal tube i.e. cannula it. This small tube is attached with a vacuum pump, which has to be drawn back and forth for sucking out fat and fluid. Once fat is removed, surgeon closes the incision with stitches.
2. Dry lipo Surgery
In this procedure, surgeon doesn’t inject any fluid mixture into the skin. He provides general anesthesia to patient who goes to sleep. Surgeon uses same suction procedure that he followed in wet liposuction.

In case a patient wants to decrease more fat from the treated area then he has to wait for 6 months.
