Tumescent Liposuction Q & A
What is tumescent liposuction?
Tumescent liposuction is a form of liposuction used to reduce bothersome fat pockets in your face or body. Recovery after tumescent liposuction takes far less time than conventional liposuction. The procedure’s advanced techniques are more controlled and safer than traditional liposuction procedures. A general anesthetic is not needed for tumescent liposuction.
What are the benefits of tumescent liposuction?
The primary benefits of tumescent liposuction at Dr. Malouf Dermatology include:
- Reduced fat bulges
- Short recovery times
- Improved facial and body contours
- Slimmer look
- Younger-looking appearance
- Less body fat
- Minimal bruising and bleeding
- Improved muscle definition
- Minimal to no scarring
Liposuction removes troublesome fat bulges that don’t go away after eating nutritious foods, exercising regularly, and maintaining an ideal body weight.
Is tumescent liposuction right for me?
Tumescent liposuction reduces fat in or around your:
- Bra bulges
- Love handles
Because it’s not a weight-loss treatment, you should be at or near an ideal weight before undergoing the tumescent liposuction.
What happens during tumescent liposuction?
During tumescent liposuction, your specialist numbs the treatment area and offers a sedative to relax you. The anesthetic they use for numbing stays in your system for up to 24 hours after surgery, which reduces postoperative pain.
After the treatment area feels numb, your specialist inserts a tiny device and suctions out fat cells in problem areas. They safely remove fat from targeted areas beneath your skin, and no stitches are needed afterward.
What should I expect after tumescent liposuction?
After the procedure, take it easy for at least 2-3 days. You might take about a week off if you have a physically demanding job. Swelling, slight bruising, and tenderness are common side effects.
You’ll notice the benefits of tumescent liposuction in as little as a week, with the final results appearing over several months after the swelling goes away. You can then enjoy your new slimmer appearance and improved contours.
