The Tumescent Approach
As one of the most popular forms of plastic surgery, liposuction helps to get rid of unwanted fat on your body. By surgically scraping off the fat and suctioning it out, liposuction can give you results that will have everyone turning their heads. But did you know that there are different forms of liposuction? As one of the most popular forms and one that our patients at Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery like, this article will discuss Tumescent liposuction. Read on to learn more about this procedure.
What Is the Tumescent Approach?
Tumescent liposuction is popular because it makes the fat removal process a lot easier. By injecting the site with a specially prepared solution, the fatty tissue in the body will suddenly be easier to remove.
What Are the Benefits?
There are several benefits to the Tumescent liposuction approach including eliminating the need for general anesthesia, a decrease in blood loss, and a shortened recovery time.
- No General Anesthesia
Does this benefit sound too good to be true? Although general anesthesia is considerably safe, many patients have their reservations about going under due to some potential health risks and complications. However, with Tumescent liposuction, the solution is typically combined with an anesthetic, so you won’t have to use a general anesthetic at all.
- A Decrease In Blood Loss
In the solution that is injected into your skin is a small amount of epinephrine. Epinephrine shrinks the blood vessels in the treatment area which in turn prevents you from losing too much blood during the procedure— a lot less than with traditional liposuction.
- Shortened Recovery Time
One of the worst parts about getting liposuction or any other forms of cosmetic surgery is the recovery time involved. However, because nearby blood vessels and tissues aren’t harmed with tumescent liposuction, your recovery time is significantly shortened.
