Tumescent Liposuction
Tumescent Liposuction
Developed by dermatologic surgeons, the tumescent liposuction technique has made liposuction more gentle than ever. It only requires local anaethetic, not general. And, to anyone who has had little success in removing specific areas of fat through diet and exercise, it's very effective.
Liposuction is not an alternative to weight loss, nor will cellulite, and waffled skin be cured by this technique. The best candidates for tumescent liposuction are people who are close to their ideal weight but who have stubborn fatty deposits in localized areas of their bodies.

In this technique, highly diluted anaethetic solutions are used to swell the tissue to be treated. A small tube, called cannula, is connected to a suction machine and gently inserted into the fatty deposits through a small incision. Using back and forth movements, the fat is loosened and suctioned through the tube. Since the fat is removed by suctioning small "tunnels"through it, the skin remains connected to the underlying muscles by multiple fibres. As healing occurs, these natural fibrous strands should contract and pull skin toward the underlying muscles, keeping the treated areas taut.

The results of this treatment are like those you would achieve if you could focus the effects of dieting and exercise to specific areas of the body.
This method of fat removal is surprisingly easy and permanent. It usually causes minimal bleeding, swelling and bruising. Furthermore, post-operative discomfort is minimized since the local anaethetic remains in the treated areas for approximately 18 hours. These areas will be swollen for about 2 days. However, you should be able to return work within 48 hours and physical exercise can usually be resumed a few days after.
