If you have stubborn areas of fat that don’t seem to budge despite your best efforts, we know all too well how frustrating that can be. Fortunately, tumescent liposuction can help you get the figure you’ve been working so hard to get. But what, exactly, is tumescent liposuction, and how does it work?
Tumescent liposuction is one of the most common types of liposuction. Tumescent fluid is injected into the treatment area. This concoction includes lidocaine and epinephrine, which helps to numb the target area while shrinking blood vessels to reduce bleeding. At the same time, this injection causes fat cells in the area to become swollen and firm, making it easier to break apart and remove fat tissue.
Patients experience several benefits when opting for this cosmetic treatment, including:
- Less blood loss when compared to traditional liposuction methods
- Shorter recovery period
- Reduced post-operative pain or discomfort when compared to other procedures
- Minimal swelling in the target area
- Only local anesthetic is required
However, to fully determine if tumescent liposuction is right for you, Dr. Nasrin Mani will meet with you in person to discuss your cosmetic goals and needs. Together, we will work to formulate your personalized treatment plan so you can get the look you want to achieve.
