Before the onset of the surgery, an anesthetic is administered; the type of the anesthetic, whether local or general anesthesia depend on how much fat is to be removed. A surgical solution is injected using a thin tube; the tube contains a large volume of saline solution into your fatty areas. The solution contains a local anesthesia, adrenaline, and epinephrine.
