Tumescent liposuction is much safer and efficient compared to traditional methods of liposuction.

Older liposuction techniques have been famous for causing certain problems - most significantly general anesthesia, which is responsible for most of the serious complications connected with surgical cosmetic procedures.

This procedure is done by infiltrating sterile fluid to loosen and soften the fat for easier removal. Using smaller, blunter instruments to remove the superficial fat there is less risk of any unsightly contour defects, such as bumpiness, lumpiness or grooving. It allows for excellent skin retraction, so on healing the skin tightens, and improvement of lax skin is achieved. After the fluid is in place, excess fat is then vacuumed out of the body through a small, hollow, blunt-ended tube. Multiple areas are often treated in order to achieve the best result.

There is minimum blood loss and the recovery time is incredibly short, because the procedure causes fewer traumas and there is usually no bruising at all. Older patients are often very good candidates. Most patients can return to work in 1-2 days and do limited exercise in 3-4 days. The end result is a safer treatment with better aesthetic results.
