The fat from the targeted area is suctioned from the body through this tube to help patients achieve a slim and balanced appearance.  While the conventional liposuction procedure was effective in removing excessive fat deposits, it was a painful procedure that involved suctioning out large areas of solid fat.  New technology has allowed for different techniques that improve the accuracy and reduce the pain associated with this procedure.
