Tumescent liposuction involves injecting diluted lidocaine and epinephrine into the fat. The lidocaine reduces pain and eliminates the need for general anesthesia. The ephinephrine shrinks the capillaries. After the ephineprhine and lidocaine is injected, a cannula will be used to gently remove the fat.
Tumescent liposuction is changing the liposuction game. In fact, many people are opting to get this procedure instead of traditional lipsosuction. There are many ways that you can benefit by getting tumescent liposuction.
Less Blood Loss
The ephinephrine minimizes blood loss by constricting the capillaries. The average person loses one or two tablespoons of blood during this procedure. This is comparable to the amount of blood that is lost during a routine blood test. In the past, blood transfusions were a routine part of liposuction procedure.
Because lidocaine is used, you will not have to worry about feeling any pain during this procedure. In fact, many people find this procedure to be comfortable. The effects of lidocaine can last for up to 36 hours. That is why the recovery stage is also more comfortable for patients. Lidocaine helps alleviate pain by constricting the blood vessels.
Because this is a gentler treatment, the chances of complications are much lower. The healing process usually goes more smoothly. Bruising and scarring are potential side effects of this procedure, but they are rare.
A small cannula is used during the surgery. The cannula allows the person to get more precise results. It also minimizes the chances of irregular fat removal.
