A cannula is inserted in a small incision and attached to a suction machine. Liposuction often takes between 1 and 2 hours. Anaesthetic fluid is placed into the area in question and an incision that is usually less than 1cm is made overlying or close to the area where the fat needs to be removed. The scars will mature over 6-2 months and become pale, flat, and soft. You may experience numbness, burning, tingling around the incision site. These symptoms are almost always temporary.
