You surgeon will firstly make special anatomic marks on the areas being treated whilst you are standing. You will then lie down on the bed and local anaesthetic will be injected into the areas being treated and sedation will be applied if required. Small micro-incisions will then be made close to the areas that are being treated and tumescent fluid will be injected in to expand the tissue layer. A small probe is then inserted that emits ultrasonic energy which vibrates and selectively breaks apart the fatty tissue on contact. A small cannula is then used in a back-and-forth motion which removes the fat with a gentle suction device. Once complete, the incisions are closed, bandages are applied and a compression garment is placed on.
