Small incisions are made in the belly button and the natural creases of the abdomen. A hollow cannula or a tube-like instrument is used to first inject local anaesthetic fluid and then to extract surplus fat. The fat will be removed in only particular areas.
What are the different types of Abdominal Etching
Liposuction is the name given to a procedure that removes pockets of unwanted fat from different areas of the body. In general, women tend to have liposuction performed on the abdomen and thighs, and men on the abdomen and flanks. In most cases, fat is extracted with a hollow tube known as a cannula and a suction device. By Laith Barnouti
