The melt-out fat is extracted with the help of the cannula. ( the small thin tube ) This is actually not a standard liposuction procedure. Typical liposuction surgery involves the displacing of excess fat in the body then extraction of the fat with the help of a surgical vacuuming instrument. If the patient’s skin is so likely to be saggy after the lipo, the doctor may determine if the possible excess skin is to be removed or not.

If these trouble the patient so much, the doctor’s post-surgery consultancy may be needed for prescription drugs.
