How is Liposuction performed?

Liposuction is performed in the operating room at a fully accredited surgical center. While you are asleep under general anesthesia the small metal tubes called canulas are inserted under the skin through small incisions and the fat is vacummed out. The surgery lasts about 1-3 hours. You are then brought to the recovery room to be monitored until you are ready to go home.
