There are several liposuction techniques. Techniques are based on the amount of anesthetic injected to the tissues (wet, superwet, tumescent), the method used to suction the fat (manual suction via syringe, power assisted, ultrasonic, laser), and the size of the cannulas used (thin, regular). Used the tumescent technique with thin cannulas throughout the procedure to enhance smooth tissue contours. He believes that the thin 3 mm cannulas are essential for a uniform result. Some surgeons use larger 5 mm cannulas and can extract the fat faster.
