How Does Liposuction Work?

Liposuction is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that should be performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Williams. Liposuction is a safe, effective procedure for the removal of fat, specifically in stubborn areas of the body. If someone has fat that seem utterly resistant to diet and exercise, liposuction can be the solution necessary for genuine change.

The liposuction procedure begins with a small incision in the area targeted for body contouring. Dr. Williams insert a small tubule, called a cannula, into the incision and employs a gentle suctioning action through to remove the fat. Once all of the fat is removed, the incision is closed, and the results are visible.
