Though, with some study, you can easily get the right answer about what liposuction really is - and what it can do for you.

Traditional liposuction is considered to the priest of all other liposuction; it is the basic form and the first one to come out.

History of liposuction:

The thought of liposuction was first explored when Dr. Dujarrier of France tried shaping a ballerina's knees with a curette (surgical scoop) in the 1920s. Unfortunately, the operation was a failure and the poor ballerina's legs had to be amputated.

After the many failed attempts, doctor had to wait so long for the success in liposuction. The first Successful liposuction was made-up in 1974, while Dr. Giorgio Fischer, an Italian gynecologist, tried using a cannula, or empty pipe, to eliminate fat through suction. After four years of successful operation Dr. Illouz and Dr. Fournier of France origin curved the procedure into a purely aesthetic one and tweaked it to make two different types of liposuction, one is dry and other is wet.


 The scientific meaning of cosmetic liposuction is the surgical exclusion of unwanted fats in the body for aesthetic reasons.

In conventional liposuction, also known as lipoplasty, a narrow pipe “cannula” is inserted into the patients' body and fat is suctioned out.
The surgeon who performs the liposuction first marks the targeted area to the treated on the patient and may takes photos for any before/after comparison. Traditional liposuction needs general anesthesia, which forced to patient to sleep for the procedure and helps doctor. This will be administered through the IV.

The Incisions made in fatty area is done under the unconscious of the patient.  The surgeon will make a tiny incision or several small incisions in the targeted area. These incisions are usually very minor and not as big as half an inch and are located so that they are not very visible like naturally creases of body.
