Learn About How Your New Jersey Liposuction Procedure Works


If you are considering Liposuction in New Jersey, it is natural to be curious about what the actual procedure entails. Learning what it is like to have the procedure and the potential risks involved is the best way to make sure that you are making a fully informed decision that you are comfortable with.

Liposuction, also known as Lipoplasty or Liposculpture, is a procedure to remove unwanted, stubborn pockets of accumulated fat. Patients who opt for Lipo in New Jersey are typically those who have found these fat pockets to persist despite exercise and weight loss.

It is important to understand that Liposuction is not a weight loss tool. Rather it is an effective means to reshape the body and get rid of localized pockets of fat.

The human body has two layers of subcutaneous fat: deep and superficial. A New Jersey Liposuction procedure targets the deep fat layer. During the surgery, a small incision is made and cannula is inserted into the deep layer of fat. As the tube is gently pushed and pulled through the fat, it breaks up fat cells. Then a vacuum pump or syringe is used to suction out the fat. Working on the deep layer of fat is actually safer than the superficial layer, as there is less risk of injuring the skin.
