Smoke from Melted Fat During Smart Liposuction?

I saw a YouTube video of how Smart Lipo was performed. The operator was melting chicken fat. Throughout the procedure, the the burning fat was emitting smoke in small bursts. What happens with that smoke? Does it stay in the body and hurt anything else?

Smoke from the melted fat probalby gets sucked out during the liposuction  procedure.  If not, it gets absorbed by the surrounding tissues as does some of the liquified fat.
