Liposuction 101: The Benefits of the Tumescent Technique
Liposuction has deep roots that trace it back all the way to the beginning of the 20th century. And although liposuction technology has come a long way— thank goodness— it remains one of the most popular and beneficial ways for patients to get rid of stubborn fat. The tumescent technique is a method that we at Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery like to use for its efficiency and safety. So, what is the tumescent technique and how can it benefit you as the patient? Read on to learn more.
What Is the Tumescent Technique?
This unique method is the most popular way that liposuction is done and it involves the use of a tumescent solution. By injecting the tumescent solution into the skin with the anesthesia, it makes the fat tissues firmer, which makes it easier to remove. Additionally, the tumescent technique typically makes it so that further anesthesia won’t be needed throughout the remainder of the surgery.
Tumescent Liposuction Benefits
The tumescent technique continues to be the most popular liposuction method for a variety of reasons including the following:
- Shortened Recovery Period: One of the biggest benefits of the tumescent approach is that it makes the recovery period extremely short— meaning you’ll get to enjoy your slimmer body sooner. Additionally, your post-operative pain will be decreased so that you will be more comfortable.
- Less Blood Loss: Additionally, with the tumescent approach, less blood is lost during surgery which makes it easier on your body.
