The Surgery

Liposuction breast surgery often takes between one to two hours. Anaesthetic fluid is placed into the area in question. After that, an incision is made overlying or close to the area where the fat needs to be removed. In the case of the body-jet liposuction fluid is infiltrated under high pressure and, if under local anaesthetic  this can give a strange sensation. A cannula is used to remove the fat. If body jet liposuction is used then, the fluid is infiltrated at the same time as the fat is removed. Once the fat has been removed the small incisions are closed with dissolvable stitches. Usually, a compressive dressing is required.
