What happens during the procedure?
Liposuction is typically performed under anesthesia with sedation to keep patients comfortable. Dr. Pratt will make small incisions in the areas where there is excess fat. These incisions are made in the natural folds of your skin so that scarring is kept to a minimum.
Dr. Pratt will then inject a saline solution to help “loosen” the fat cells so that they’re easier to break up and remove. A thin, hollow tube (cannula) will be inserted into the incisions to break up the fat cells and vacuum them away.
