What is Tumescent Body Liposuction?
You may have come across tumescent liposuction if you’ve been looking for ways to achieve a slim, streamlined figure. Dr. Rodgers offers this procedure to men and women of nearly all ages. It is the most common form of liposuction performed today. There are many advantages to going with this procedure instead of using an alternative to traditional liposuction like laser liposuction. Take a look at what patients can expect.
The Basics of Tumescent Body Liposuction
A tumescent solution is used during this procedure. The solution contains a mix of saltwater and adrenaline. In addition, a local anesthetic is commonly injected. A plastic surgeon will mark the areas of the body where fat will be removed. The solution is then injected directly into fatty deposits under the skin. A thin tube called a cannula is threaded into the fatty layer of the skin. This tube is attached to a device that resembles a vacuum. The surgeon then gently and precisely guides the tube back and forth while catching and collecting fat.
