The article focuses on liposculpturing. Dermatologic surgeon Giorgio Fischer differs from other liposuction surgeons who use a forcefully grasping technique with the nondominant hand pinching the roll of skin over the cannula tip. Instead Fischer prefers stretching the skin as in dermabrasion to maintain the orientation of the cannula parallel to the surface. Using his guided cannula, Fischer attempts to develop a series of small parallel tunnels 1 centimeter from the skin surface. He then uses his swan-neck cannula to create deeper layers of tunnels freehand.
