There are various techniques to perform liposuction in Dubai and the duration of surgery also varies from patient to patient depending on the technique used and extent of surgery. For e.g., if someone needs contouring of the outer thighs it may take an hour or less but if multiple areas need treatment, the procedure may last 3 hours or somewhat longer. Traditional fat removal procedure includes the following steps:
- At first, anesthesia is administered into the treatment area. The options include intravenous sedation, local anesthesia, and general anesthesia but the procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia because it reduces the risk of bleeding and trauma.
- Your surgeon will make minor inconspicuous incisions at a few sites on the treatment area.
- Through these incisions, a small cannula – thin hollow tube – will be inserted. Then the cannula will be moved back and forth to loosen the excess fat.
- The broken fat will be removed using a syringe or vacuum attached to the cannula.
- Finally, incisions will be stitched closed with sutures.
- Absorbent dressings will be placed on incision wounds.
