Short incisions are made through the skin to introduce the instrument that will remove fat in the shaded areas. A similar technique may be used to remove localized fat deposits from other areas of the body.
A long, hollow tube with an opening at one end is inserted. At the tube’s opposite end, a vacuum pressure unit suctions off fat. Ultrasonic energy sometimes may be used to liquefy fat before it is removed.
The postoperative liposuction patient will have a slimmer lower body contour.
