A liposuction cannula is inserted through multiple incisions that have been numbed with tumescent solution – a local anesthetic – to reach stubborn fat areas and remove the fat out of the body with suction. During the procedure, your body will experience a gentle rocking back and forth as the surgeon both eliminates stubborn fat and contours your body. The incisions will be barely noticeable after the procedure and oftentimes require no sutures. This whole process will take around one to four hours depending on the area and amount of fat needed to be removed.
Please note that in Florida, we are limited to removing up to four liters of fat while at all of our other locations we can remove up to five liters.
