What is Tumescent Liposuction?
Tumescent liposuction is widely regarded as a safer substitute for traditional liposuction, offering effective fat removal and the attainment of desired body contouring outcomes. Moreover, it curtails the movement of internal bodily fluids, which, in turn, can contribute to a decrease in blood pressure when dealing with significant volumes of fat.
Key Benefits of Tumescent Liposuction:
- Minimal loss of blood
- Enhanced aesthetic results
- Mitigated post-procedure discomfort, courtesy of the extended 24-hour local anesthesia
- Quick post-procedure recovery

How is Tumescent Liposuction Performed?
During the procedure, a significant amount of diluted lidocaine is injected into the targeted area before liposuction, causing the fat to swell and become firmer. This solution improves precision in fat removal and minimizes skin irregularities, bruising, blood loss, and post-operative soreness.

Tumescent Liposuction Side Effects and Safety:
Tumescent liposuction is generally considered safe, thanks to the utilization of local anesthesia. This approach mitigates the potential risks associated with general anesthesia, such as nausea and complications. Common side effects may encompass mild burning and minimal discomfort at the site of anesthesia administration.
