Liposuction Cannula – FAQs

At Peak Surgicals, we value our customers. Here are some frequently asked questions most existing and potential customers tend to have. If you are new here, these Q&As may prove helpful:

What is a Liposuction Cannula?

A liposuction cannula is a tool used during liposuction surgery. The size and type of the cannula depend on the type of liposuction and on the body part where the surgeon needs to perform the procedure.

What is the structural difference between each cannula?

The structure of every cannula is almost the same; it is just that the tip of the liposuction cannula is different.

Distal tip: The front part of the cannula has a distal end that goes deep down into the skin and holds the fat. It has more than one opening that helps in removing fat.

Metal tube: The thickness of the cannula depends on the size of the tube. The fat travels from one part of the body to the receptacle. The small cannula is ideal for use on smaller areas such as the face, while the big cannula is suitable for thigh liposuction.

Proximal End: Proximal is the end part of the cannula attached to the suction machine or syringe to burn out the extra fat.

What is the size of the cannula?

The liposuction cannula comes in 4 sizes 20cm, 30cm, 25cm, and 35cm. The total diameter is 2.4mm, 3.0mm, 3.7mm, 4.0mm, 4.5mm, and 5mm.

How many different cannulas are there for liposuction treatment?

  • Fat injection cannula
  • Aspiration cannula
  • Power Cannula
  • Disposable cannula

Do cannulas cause any scars of liposuction?

Due to the modern cannula technique, the scars are tiny and unnoticed. The scars are temporary and will go away with proper care.

Which cannula can reduce recovery time?

After the liposuction surgery, the total time for the recovery would be 2-5 weeks. Most of the time, this depends on the area that requires liposuction surgery, not the cannula.

Can the cannula type reduce the risks involved in liposuction surgery?

Every medical procedure has some risks. Some of the common risks that are involved in liposuction surgery are:

  • Numbness: The numbness can stay for an extended period.
  • Internal puncture: The cannula might puncture deeper inside the skin area, which can be harmful.
  • Infection: Skin infection might occur.

What surgical instruments are most used during plastic surgery?

  • Breast elevator
  • Thumb forceps
  • Needle holder
  • Breast dissector
  • Skin graft knives
  • Mammoplasty retractor

What is the effect of cannula diameter on fat Retention?

Autologous fat is regarded as an ideal substance for soft-tissue augmentation. Fat retention is a vital sign because the fundamental disadvantage of autologous fat grafting leads to a high absorption rate.

What are the critical things you should buy before the liposuction surgery?

Some of the essential medical supplies to buy before the surgery are gauze, pain killers, ice packs, and lotion. Avoid stairs and any heavy body activity because it requires rest for at least 2-5 weeks.
