Liposuction is performed through small incisions using a narrow tube, called a cannula, and a suctioning machine. Your plastic surgeon will move the cannula under the skin to suction away excess fatty tissue. You may feel some moving sensations or some minor irritation during the procedure if you have a local anesthesia. You will also be given plenty of fluids during the procedure to replace those that are lost.
Liposuction takes a couple of hours to perform; however, it can take longer depending on the extent of your procedure and whether you are having other body contouring procedures performed at the same time. Generally, liposuction is an outpatient procedure, but some patients prefer to stay overnight in the hospital.
