A 3-4 millimeter cut is opened to the area where the oil is being disintegrated and liquid is removed from the body, and a vacuum is performed using a cannula (fine tube). The cuts for cannulas are millimeters, so there are no traces of the skin after treatment.

The gynecomastia caused by both fat and breast tissue is used as a solution. In the surgical procedure, the scar is completely concealed at the point of transition between the breast head and the skin, as it is made in a half-moon shape. This method can also remove fat and breast tissue as well as excess skin.
