3 Main Types of Liposuction Surgery
1. Traditional Liposuction Surgery.
If the word “liposuction” makes you think of manual fat removal with a cannula, then you’re picturing traditional liposuction surgery. This popular procedure (in fact, it’s the second most popular cosmetic surgery in the United States) is an ideal solution for candidates who have stubborn fat tissue that won’t respond to typical diet and exercise efforts.
During liposuction surgery, your plastic surgeon may use a small cannula to manually break up fat tissue within the targeted treatment area. Once the fat is broken up, it’s removed through the cannula, leaving behind a more contoured body area.
