Tumescent Liposuction

This technique uses a dilute lidocaine mixture found in most general anesthetics. Patients often chose a tumescent Liposuction over traditional Liposuction for a variety of reasons including:

  • Less blood is lost
  • Intravenous fluid replacement is not necessary
  • Bacteriostatic lidocaine may decrease the risk of infections
  • Tumescence magnifies defects; therefore, the likelihood of needing a secondary procedure may be less
  • Lipid-soluble lidocaine is somewhat suctioned out with the aspirated fat
  • Vasoconstriction minimizes absorption
  • The epinephrine may increase the cardiac output, which, in turn, hastens the hepatic metabolism of the lidocaine
  • The duration of anesthetic effect may last as long as 24 hours
  • The lidocaine may be given safely up to 45 mg/kg and even higher in certain conditions
