Liposuction - Liposculture
The lipsuction or liposculture, is the surgical aspiration of fat located underneath the skins surface. During the last few years, liposuction hasa been the most popular surgical procedure.

The type of anesthesia will depend of the evaluations of the patient by the surgeon ( this includes, the patients body build , the amount of fat that will be removed, the general conditions and the type of surgical technique). Depending on these, the anesthesia could be general, local or by intravenous sedation.
Liposuction usually takes 1 to 2 hours, nevertheless time may vary from30 minutes to a few hours, depending on the area to be treated and the ammount of fat that will be suctioned. The procedure begins when the surgeon makes a very small incission, just large enough to permit the introduction of the suction tube . The other end of the tube is connected to a suctioning machine . For a few years now, the Tumescent Technique has been used, which consists of injecting Saline solutions with lidocain and adrenaline at the level of the fatty tissue located underneath the skin.
