Liposuction is by far one of the best-known surgical cosmetic procedures performed today. Almost everyone knows someone or at least has heard of someone who has had liposuction done. However, the term tumescent liposuction might be new to many people.
Tumescent liposuction is different because it is minimally-invasive. It uses ultrasound or laser energy to break up the fat cells prior to removal. Since the fat is liquefied before being removed, less harm is done to the surrounding tissue. And only small incisions are required since a smaller cannula is used and the fat is melted prior to removal.
As you can imagine, since tumescent liposuction is less invasive than traditional liposuction, the recovery time tends to be quicker. There is less discomfort overall because there is less damage being done to nearby tissue. This offers many benefits for the patient. It allows patients to get back to their normal activities in a timelier manner without the hassle and discomfort associated with traditional techniques.
Tumescent lipo offers improved body sculpting because it is more precise. Although the procedure is minimally-invasive, it can still remove large quantities of fat from the treated area. Common body parts that are treated with tumescent liposuction include the abdomen, the thighs and the arms. It can also be used on smaller areas, such as the neck.
This innovative form of liposuction is safe. And the cosmetic results it produces are phenomenal. Why go through an invasive, highly uncomfortable procedure when you can take advantage of the latest and greatest techniques that are out there?
