Before the procedure , the areas concerned are marked , with the patient standing.
Once the patient is in agreement with the outlined areas, the patient is taken to theatre.
Liposuction is normally done under sedation and local anesthetic( totally pain-free).
With the patient asleep, fluid containing local anesthetic and adrenalin is infiltrated into the fat deposits, through tiny openings.This results in the treated areas becoming anesthetized, as well as blood loss reduced, because of the adrenalin.
Liposuction is then done through the same small openings using a special, thin blunt cannula connected to a suction device.
The procedure is performed with a lot of finesse, contouring the body as fat is carefully removed, taking care to remove the correct amounts of fat. All procedures are done as day procedures.
Duration of Surgery 1-2 hours
