They are going to go underneath the skin and lyposuction the excess fat that is in the area. They will most likely remove some skin in the area and sew u back up so it is more tight.

This is a major surgical procedure. You will undergo anesthesia during the procedure so you won't feel anything then. The surgery includes removing excess skin and tissue then suturing the new smaller area closed. You will initially be given IV pain medication then switched to oral medication. Although you will experience some discomfort, the medication should keep you fairly comfortable.
