About Tumescent Liposuction
If you are one of those who are fighting a battle with the body shape, size and stubborn fat
deposits, Tumescent Liposuction offers a minimally invasive procedure that promises less
downtime and assures improved cosmetic results.
The word tumescent means swollen and firm. In this procedure large amounts of a highly
diluted fluid containing an anesthetic (lidocaine) and adrenaline (epinephrine) are infused
into the layer of fat which causes it to become firm and swollen. This has several benefits
including the ability to judge more easily how much fat to remove from a specific area.
The Tumescent Liposuction Benefits
Tumescent liposuction is advantageous because it:
- Minimally invasive
- Expands the safe zone for removal of fat
- Allows removal of greater volumes of fat
- Keeps patients comfortable with local anesthetic
- 100% safety rating
- Improved cosmetic results
The advantage of using lidocaine is that it provides long lasting and profound anesthesia for
the skin and fat layer and can last up to 24 hours.
Patients who bruise easily are delighted to see that there is very little bruising after the
procedure and that within a week, there is no evidence of bruising at all.
Tumescent Liposuction Procedure
The Tumescent technique utilizes large volumes of saline solution that contain
dilute Lidocaine (local anesthetic) in combination with epinephrine (adrenaline) which
temporarily constricts the small blood vessels known as capillaries.
The solution is injected into the fatty tissue through small, anesthetized incisions made in
mostly inconspicuous places causing the tissue to become firm and inflated, or, tumescent.
This allows the surgeon to extract the fat in a more accurate and uniform fashion, thereby
producing smoother results. The anesthetic agent in the solution is allowed time to diffuse
throughout the fatty tissue, assuring both optimal anesthesia as well as constriction of the
capillaries. The shrinkage of capillaries is instrumental in minimizing bleeding during and after
surgery, as well as bruising. Not only does this make the surgery safer, it also speeds up
recovery. As a result, most patients can return to work and to their regular routines very soon.

Quick Facts for Tumescent Liposuction
Are you the right fit for the procedure?
Liposuction is most successful for individuals who have stubborn pockets of fat or areas of localized fat on the body. It is not a substitute for overall fat loss or significant weight change. Strong candidates for liposuction will be at a generally healthy, stable weight and in good health overall. You must have good skin tone, and also have realistic expectations.
Comprehensive care, before, during & after surgery
At Alluremedspa, we don’t simply provide surgical solutions; we recognize your needs extend beyond the surgical procedure itself.
Our dedicated post-surgical section is designed with your comfort and care in mind. Our entire staff from the expert team of anesthesiologists to nurses, will ensure you are treated with utmost care and warmth.
The Aftercare Advantage/Advice
Activities that put excessive stress on treated areas may cause bruising or some discomfort. Our experience is that the majority of patients return to their work and regular routine within a couple of days. Some report being slowed down somewhat.
Pre-operative requirements in order to undergo surgery
- Discontinue medicines that act as blood thinners and could cause excessive bruising, bleeding or other complications.
- Stop smoking for at least two weeks before and one week after surgery, as nicotine can impair circulation and healing.
- Don’t drink alcohol in excess for two weeks before your Liposculpturing procedure and one week after the surgery.
- Drink lots of water in the days leading up to your Liposculpting

Alluremedspa concierge service
Alluremedspa’s clientele comprises of local, out-of-town patients. A good percentage of patients also ‘fly-in’ from out of the country to have surgery with our renowned surgeons.
We are pleased to offer and arrange comfortable lodging, restaurant, and commuting to ensure a memorable pre-and post-surgical experience for our out-of-country patients. Please feel free to contact the Counsellor via firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance with any of your travel and planning needs.
Walking is encouraged as soon as possible after surgery, particularly the next day, and most patients feel well enough to go for a walk or drive a car by this time. In fact, patients report feeling better if they keep moving around as opposed to sitting or lying down in one position for too long. Light exercise may be resumed one week after surgery or occasionally even sooner, though we strongly suggest avoiding vigorous exercise for one or two weeks.
Results will last for
As with all cosmetic and plastic surgical procedures, the results vary with each individual patient
One of the benefits of liposuction is that once the fat cells are removed from the body, they are gone. Patients won’t gain weight in those areas unless their weight gain is significant. Results are seen for longer times if the patients adhere to the advice of the doctor to keep the weight off through proper diet and exercise.

Tumescent Liposuction FAQs
- Is there Pain or Discomfort after Liposuction Surgery?
During the two days immediately after liposuction, the amount of pain experienced depends on the type of anesthesia used for liposuction. Soreness is usually the most intense 2 to 4 days after liposuction and then decreases steadily. The tenderness and soreness typically is quite bothersome for up to 4 weeks, but gradually subsides over the following next 4 to 8 weeks.
- How does Liposuction Affect the Appearance of the Skin? Does Liposuction Produce Visible Scars?
The appearance of skin after liposuction depends on the skin’s elasticity. Skin with good elasticity should look smooth and natural after liposuction. Scars are not a common problem with modern liposuction which uses very small cannulas (microcannulas) and thus only very small incision are required.
- Is Liposuction a Reasonable Treatment for Obesity?
Liposuction is not a good treatment of obesity. Liposuction is not effective, even as a last resort, for people who are unable to lose weight by dieting and exercise.
- Is it Normal to be Anxious Before having Liposuction Surgery?
Yes. Almost everyone has some degree of anxiety before having a surgical procedure, including liposuction. Some people have more anxiety than others.
- How does Abdominal Liposuction Differ from a “Tummy Tuck”?
A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is a major surgical procedure requiring general anesthesia, and involves liposuction and excision to remove fat, plus a large excision of skin. In many patients (but not all) liposuction of the abdomen can often provide equivalent or better results than a tummy tuck. Because liposuction is safer and causes less scarring compared to tummy tucks, abdominal liposuction is now far more common than are tummy tucks.
- What is the definition of the word tumescent?
The word tumescent means swollen and firm.
- What is the tumescent technique?
The tumescent technique for Local Anesthesia involves the injection of large volumes of very dilute lidocaine (Local Anesthetic) and epinephrine (drug that shrinks capillaries) into subcutaneous fat. The word tumescent means swollen and firm. With the tumescent technique, the volume of dilute lidocaine that is injected into fat is so large that the targeted areas literally become tumescent (swollen and firm). The tumescent technique produces profound and long-lasting Local Anesthesia of the skin and subcutaneous fat. Tumescent liposuction designates a form of liposuction that uses Tumescent Local Anesthesia.
