Liposuction (Suction-Assisted Liposuction) for Chin
Liposuction (Suction-Assisted Liposuction) for chin
It improves body shape by removing exercise-resistant fat deposits at unpleasant sites with a hollow metal instrument attached to a tube and vacuum device. Liposuction is not a substitute for dieting and exercise, neither is it a procedure for achieving weight loss. It is performed by using a combination of the wet and tumescent techniques, in which targeted fat cells are infused with saline solution containing blood vessels constricting and other drugs prior to liposuction in order to reduce the post-operative bruising and swelling. These targeted fat tissues are aspirated from concealed access incisions using blunt cannulae as are appropriate for the site being treated.
