Liposuction is one of the most common cosmetic surgeries, and involves removing excess fat to sculpt the body when diet and exercise have not helped. Through Liposuction, fat can be removed from the waist buttocks, hips, abdomen, thighs, and even the knees, chin, cheeks, arms and neck. One of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures, liposuction sculpts the body by removing undesirable fat from areas such as the abdomen, waist, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, chin, cheeks, neck and upper arms that have not responded to diet and exercise. The patient is sedated under local or general anesthesia, and, depending on the area of the body being treated, a Liposuction procedure takes between one and five hours.
Types of Liposuction methods used by Ritacca include tumescent liposuction, ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL), and super-wet liposuction. With all types of Liposuction, a small incision is made in an unnoticeable place on the body and a small tube (cannula) is insterted, breaking up a layer of fat and suctioning it out.
