This procedure is used to contour areas of the body that are resistant to diet and exercise. Ideal candidates should be close to their ideal weight. A small cannula or tube is inserted through small incisions in the skin and attached to a vacuum pressure unit that suctions out fat. A compression garment is worn after surgery to reduce swelling. Commonly treated areas include the thighs, hips, waist, and abdomen.
