To obtain the look, approximately 400 cc’s of saline solution is injected under the skin
through a needle and intravenous line. Two hours later after the liquid slowly inflates the skin, the needle is removed and a thumbprint is made in the center of the puffy area, creating the look of a bagel.

- Prolonged fluid retention in the tissue, often with a “pitted” appearance
