Similar to traditional liposuction, tumescent liposuction surgery in Los Angeles can sculpt a more ideal body contour by eliminating areas of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise. The technique uses a special tumexcent solution to minimize pain, ease fat removal and minimize bleeding.

If you have diet resistant areas of fat and desire a more attractive body shape, tumescent liposuction may be the ideal cosmetic solution for you.

Tumescent Liposuction Improves Comfort, Safety, Results

Tumescent liposuction is a method for pre-treating fatty tissues with a dilute solution containing adrenaline and local anesthetic. Your surgeon injects this tumescent fluid deep into the tissues surrounding each pocket of fat that is to be removed.

Adrenaline causes blood vessels to constrict, which improves patient safety by reducing the amount of blood that will be lost during liposuction. The use of a local anesthetic allows the anesthesiologist to use a much lighter sedation and reduce patient discomfort during the hours that follow surgery.

The tumescent method’s infusion of fluid into the fatty layer will cause the surrounding tissues to temporarily swell and become firmer. This is another great benefit of the tumescent approach because the swelling and firming will enable your doctor to remove fat more precisely and sculpt a more ideal body contour. Tumescent liposuction has a very low complication rate when performed by a qualified, board-certified plastic surgeon.

The tumescent technique may also be used before performing power-assisted liposuction or ultrasonic liposuction. The tumescent approach enhances the safety of these liposuction techniques while facilitating greater sculpting accuracy and a more pleasant recovery for our patients.
