    Surgery using TiteFX

    Surgery can be carried out under local or general anesthesia, etc. A cannula is used to make a small incision for inserting hemostatic and anesthetic agents. The surgery usually takes about 1-3 hours although the duration may differ depending on the area. Moreover, compression clothing should be worn for about a month after surgery to help shape the body. The first week after surgery is dedicated to managing edema and bruising. The surgical area tends to heal into hard mass during the first couple of months after surgery and massages during this time can help relieve the hardness. If necessary, nonsurgical methods are used for post-surgical care. The initial hardness, bumps and loss of sensation in the surgical area improve gradually in 6-12 months.
