Tumescent Liposuction

Tumescent Liposuction

Tumescent Liposuction is a technique in which we inject a large volume of very dilute lidocaine and epinephrine into subcutaneous fat, causing the targeted tissue to become swollen and firm, or “tumescent.” This is a less invasive form of the traditional liposuction.

 

What are some benefits of tumescent liposuction?

  • The patient is under local anesthesia, meaning they are awake and not completely under general anesthesia but feels no pain. This removes the need for administrating sedatives and narcotics during surgery.
  • Less bleeding and reduced complications
  • Faster recovery time
  • More affordable
  • Use of a smaller cannula will result in almost imperceptible scars and more precise results
  • Overall, this technique is a much safer, more effective, and less invasive approach
