The areas with fat deposits are carefully marked prior to the process, and cannulas are inserted through small incisions of a few millimeters, the fat cells are broken up by strong laser beams by breaking down their membranes, and after some energy is left in the tissue the process is terminated. Then, the fat that has been broken down is removed from the body by a special aspirator system. This process does not cause any harm to the veins and nerves.
