The main areas which are usually targeted under this procedure are the abdomen or 'tummy tuck', hips, thighs, arms, neck and buttocks.
There are a number of different procedures which have been used as part of this cosmetic procedure. However, the most common is the suction assisted lipo. Under this method, a small cannula which is an instrument resembling a straw is inserted into the body by making a small incision or slit into the body. This cannula is attached to a vaccum device through which the cosmetic surgeon, breaks the fat cells pushes and pulls it out in forward and backward motion with the help of suction.
