Liposuction is the surgical aspiration of fat from the subcutaneous plane leaving a more desirable body contour and a smooth transition between the suctioned and the no suctioned areas. Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed by only certified plastic surgeons all over the world. Although liposuction is not a technically difficult procedure to perform, it requires thoughtful planning and careful patient selection to achieve consistency pleasing results.During liposuction excessive fat is removed from an individual’s body with a slender and hollow instrument called a cannula (which resembles a long metal straw). The surgeon removes the fat by placing the cannula through a tiny incision and attaching it to a suction machine, which then literally sucks the unwanted fat out from the body. Patient selection is a critical determinant of a good surgical result, especially in body contouring. Not all patients who request liposuction are good candidates. One of the most important physical findings, which will have significant bearing on the final outcome, is the patient’s skin tone, or dermal quality.It is important to pinch and palpate the skin, assessing for the degree of laxity and dermal thickness. A thicker dermis is more likely to retract after liposuction and give a desirable result.
