1. The first step of a liposuction procedure is to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon. The surgeon will discuss the patient’s goals, medical history, and any potential risks. 

2. The patient will then need to have an evaluation to determine if they are a good candidate for the procedure and to assess the areas that need liposuction. 

3. After the evaluation, the surgeon will discuss the type of anesthesia to be used during the procedure and explain the liposuction techniques that will be used. 

4. The surgeon will then mark the areas that need to be treated and take preoperative photos. 

5. During the procedure, the surgeon will make small incisions, usually near the treatment area, and insert a cannula, a thin hollow tube. 

6. The cannula will be used to break up the fat cells and suction them out of the body. 

7. The surgeon will then use a cannula to smooth out the treated area and shape it. 

8. After the liposuction, the surgeon will close the incisions with sutures and apply a dressing or bandages. 

9. The patient will be monitored
