Areas in the body ,including the trunk, arms, legs and neck that have excess fat can be treated by liposuction. This procedure involves infusing a solution of saline, adrenaline and xylocaine into the fat pocket followed by aspiration to remove the fluid and fat, allowing the skin over the fat pocket to shrink to a tighter shape. Small incisions are made in various fold lines in the body and are very difficult to see. General or local anesthesia with sedation (“twilight anesthesia”) is used and surgical time varies between one and three hours. This procedure is often used to supplement tummy tuck surgery. Usually no overnight stay in the hospital is needed.
