How Tumescent Liposuction Works
Liposuction is one of the best options for precise fat removal. Liposuction is a versatile procedure that can be used to remove fat from areas like the thighs, back, abdomen, flanks, chest, and neck.
Before the fat can be removed from the body, it must be loosened from the surrounding tissues. A hollow tube known as a cannula is used to scrape away the targeted fat. The solid fat is difficult to remove in this state, so a tumescent fluid is injected into the area to help break down that fat so that it can be easily drained out of the body.
If you have pockets of fat that are ruining the beauty of your figure, contact our plastic-surgery office to schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Todd Rau. He can provide you with excellent care and amazing results.
