A small incision is made in a natural crease of the skin or some other inconspicuous place. A hollow, pen-like device, called a canula, is inserted into the skin. The canula is used to take out the fat.
If using VASER® Lipo, the canula helps to dissolve the fat before the excess is taken out. Patients are sent home wearing a compression garment to help with the swelling.
