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.

Tumescent liposuction reduces fat in or around your:
Because it’s not a weight-loss treatment, you should be at or near an ideal weight before undergoing the 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.
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.
