What is Tumescent Liposuction?
The Science Behind
Liposuction is one of the most popular ways to surgically remove excess and unwanted fat from the body. During Tumescent liposuction, a solution containing lidocaine is injected into the treated areas, effectively numbing the area and causing the fat to break away from connective tissue more easily.
Tumescent Liposuction is proven to cause less trauma on the body and can result in less healing time and less pain. Local anesthesia used in the tumescent technique for liposuction is so effective that patients no longer need intravenous sedatives, narcotic analgesics, or general anesthesia. Tumescent Liposuction can even be performed while the patient is standing, for precise contouring.
Since local anesthesia lasts so long, tumescent liposuction is less painful and more pleasant than liposuction under general anesthesia or IV sedation.
Less Side Effects
With local anesthesia, patients have the ability to avoid the post-operative nausea and vomiting associated with general anesthesia.
Tumescent anesthesia is so efficient at providing fluid to the body that it is unnecessary to use IV fluids after or during the procedure.
Tumescent Liposuction is performed by our board certified dermatologist – Jessie Cheung MD.
