What Is Tumescent Liposuction?
Tumescent liposuction is the most widely used form of liposuction and is considered the ‘Gold Standard’ to which all other forms of liposuction are compared. During the procedure, a special sterile mixture is infused in the body. It consist of sterile salt water, which helps in fat removal, an anesthetic (lidocaine) to reduce pain and epinephrine to constrict blood vessels. Once it’s injected into the area that’s being treated, small incisions are made in the skin, and a small cannula is used to tunnel through the fat, and then suction it out of the body. By using a back and forth motion, Dr. Jugenburg can sculpt the body’s contour to a renewed shape.
