As mentioned earlier, liposuction is a best and simple way to get rid of extra fat. The fat in the abdomen has two different levels- a superficial and a deep layer. Fat located just below the skin and above the abdominal muscles is called superficial abdominal fat. Whereas, the fat located inside the abdominal peritoneal cavity is called deep layer abdominal fat. Liposuction may not work for the fat in these areas. Superficial fat can be removed using laser-assisted liposuction.
The liposuction procedure takes a couple of hours to create a graceful belly. The procedure starts with a general or local anesthesia. The surgeon will make incisions on the concerned area. A hollow thermionic valve will be affixed into the body. The surgeon will move it softly backward and forward through a layer of fat tissue. This will help to suck the fat cells out. After that, the incisions will be closed. In some cases, it may be left open in order to drain the waste fluids.

The candidate might not require pain medication as the procedure may not be that painful. There might be soreness and discomfort for a short period of time.
