Suction-assisted liposuction is one of the many available varieties of liposuction procedure. Liposuction is a popular cosmetic procedure where fat can be suctioned out from difficult areas that dieting can’t help in order to contour the body.
Suction-assisted liposuction is the standing technique for liposuction. A small, sharp tube called a cannula is inserted through a small incision around the targeted area. The cannula is hollow like a straw and attached to a suction device. The cannula is pushed and pulled carefully through the fat layer, which breaks up fat cells and sucks them out of the body.
