Why Tumescent Liposuction Should Be Your ChoiceDecember 10, 2017
Your body weight is not something that you pause your life for. Being fat is factually unhealthy, and when weight loss seems like reaching the moon on a moped, a liposuction surgery comes to your rescue. In this article, we shall talk about one of the most common and minimally invasive liposuction techniques available: Tumescent Liposuction
What is a tumescent liposuction surgery?
Tumescent is a word derived from Greek origins, which means anything swollen and firm. A tumescent liposuction surgery involves a large volume of a very dilute local anaesthetic solution (lidocaine and epinephrine). This anaesthetic solution is injected into the fat beneath the skin, which makes the targeted area firm. The local anaesthetic lidocaine is so effective that it cuts down the need for general anaesthesia or an IV sedation. The drug epinephrine (adrenaline) narrows the blood vessels, regulates the blood pressure, and controls surgical bleeding during a tumescent liposuction.
A tumescent liposuction surgery involves two techniques:
Wet Technique: Wet tumescent liposuction surgery refers to the use of fluid injection before the liposuction surgery. To prepare for wet liposuction, the surgeon administers approximately 100 ml of local anaesthesia that contains epinephrine directly into the tissue. This reduces blood loss during the surgery and minimises discomfort to the after the surgery.
Super Wet Technique: The super wet tumescent liposuction surgery technique is quite similar to a wet tumescent liposuction. The only difference it has is, this method uses a solution containing less of the anaesthetics lidocaine and epinephrine. These anaesthetics are replaced with IV sedation drugs or general anaesthesia sedatives because the area being treated does not become entirely numb with the solution alone. The surgery usually takes about two hours, and the patient can opt to have other procedures performed as well.
Advantages of Tumescent Liposuction Surgery
- Less blood loss.
- Bacteriostatic lidocaine decreases the risk of developing infections.
- Tumescence magnifies defects; therefore eliminates the likelihood of a secondary procedure for fat removal.
- Vasoconstriction decreases absorption.
- The epinephrine increases the cardiac output, which hastens the hepatic metabolism of lidocaine. (It maintains the balance).
- Minimises bruising and scarring.
- Safe procedure.
- Fewer aches and pain.
- Long lasting results.
- Faster recovery time.
A tumescent liposuction surgery is one of the latest and advanced liposuction techniques being used in the current scenario. It is just as effective as a traditional liposuction surgery is, but with far more better results and lesser recovery time. Tumescent liposuction surgery nullifies the chances of complications and side effects and you are left with outstanding results, and a smiling face!
