Mercy Hospital Dunedin - Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery
Private Surgical Service, Plastic Surgery
This procedure removes unwanted pockets of fat from under your skin in specific parts of the body such as the chin, neck, upper arms, stomach, hips and thighs. A small cut (incision) is made through which a narrow, hollow tube (cannula) is inserted. The tube is moved around to loosen the fat cells, which are then sucked out with a vacuum device.
