What is tumescent liposuction?
Using extremely small micro-instruments, tumescent liposuction is a safe, simple procedure that gently reshapes your body. Tumescent liposuction removes excess fat from stubborn areas.
How is the procedure performed?
A large amount of diluted local anesthetic is first injected into the area. No general anesthesia is needed. Next, a small suction tube, called a cannula, is inserted through a tiny incision placed in an inconspicuous location on the skin. With a high pressure vacuum, fat cells are extracted through the tube, resulting in a re-sculpting of bulging areas into more attractive contours.
How does tumescent liposuction vary from traditional liposuction or SmartLipo?
Tumescent liposuction utilizes a much smaller cannula than traditional liposuction. The smaller cannula allows for much more precise sculpting than traditional liposuction. In addition, the procedure is substantially less invasive, minimizing bruising, and allowing for quicker recovery times and significantly less discomfort. Due to the small size of the cannula, the fibrous connections between your skin and body remain intact. These connections contract over time, eliminating excessive skin folds.
SmartLipo is a laser that is used in conjunction with the tumescent liposuction procedure to melt the fat for easier extraction, resulting in less bleeding, swelling, and bruising. The SmartLipo laser also tightens the skin in the treated area for a smoother result.
What areas can be treated with tumescent liposuction?
While liposuction is not designed to correct general obesity, any area where excess fat deposits have accumulated can be treated. These include the waistline, abdomen, inner and outer thighs, buttocks, arms, chin, neck, jowls, and cheeks.
How quick is the recovery time?
After the procedure, a compression bandage is worn by the patient for several days. Most patients are able to return to normal activities within a few days.
