The key tool in the liposuction procedure is a thin, sharp tube known as a cannula. With this surgical tool, the plastic surgeon is able to first loosen and then remove fat cells that stubbornly cling to the surrounding tissues. This has the effect of contouring the body.
The liposuction procedure begins with anesthesia, followed by the creation of an incision in the targeted area. The cannula is then inserted. The sharp end of the cannula is worked back and forth to loosen the cells. Suction is then used to transport the cells out of the body, reducing the region in volume.
