Patients often have many questions about the procedure, and it’s extremely important to meet with a board-certified surgeon to understand everything about liposuction before going through the process.

The first liposuction technique is traditional tumescent liposuction. This uses a thin and hollow tube to loosen excess fat by a back-and-forth movement, which is then removed from the body. The second technique is power-assisted liposuction. This technique uses a device that produces rapid, small vibrations to break up the fat before it can ultimately be taken out of the body.
