Tune Your Contours and Remove Stubborn Fat

What Is Tumescent Liposuction

Often the body has fat deposits that don’t change with diet and exercise. Liposuction removes these fat deposits from many parts of the body including the face, neck, chin, breasts, flanks, hips, stomach, buttocks and thighs. Tumescent liposuction is the most popular type of liposuction due to the fact it’s safer and less painful than traditional liposuction. It also has a quicker recovery time, is an outpatient procedure and is performed without general anesthesia.

How Is It Performed

Areas of moderate fat excess are injected with a dilute solution of lidocaine and epinephrine, a local anesthetic and adrenaline. The solution causes blood vessels to shrink, which reduces blood loss and bruising. A mild oral sedation is also administered. Then a thin tube is inserted into the incision that the doctor uses to contour the area by vacuuming out the fatty layer. With most patients, the downtime is only days with the tumescent procedure and patients get by without narcotic pain medicine. Typically only Advil or Tylenol is needed in recovery.
