Prior to surgery, a "wetting solution" was injected into the patient's fatty tissues to make her fat cells easier to remove and minimize post-operative discomfort. During the liposuction procedure, I used a long, thin "cannula" to break up and remove fat cells. Cannulas access the fat pockets through a series of small incisions which heal quickly after surgery, so that any scarring is not easily noticeable. 2.9 liters of fat were removed from this patient's upper back and love handles. Comparing her pre- and post-operative photos, the contours of this woman's body appear much smoother and tighter, displaying a smaller waistline and clearer, more feminine curves.
