Have you noticed that certain areas of your body accumulate fat more than others? This issue can keep you from attaining the well-contoured body you desire. You can try to commit to a diet plan or exercise routine, but these actions don’t always breed the results you desire. Fortunately, there’s another solution to this problem.

People who have an issue achieving their bodily goals due to stubborn fat can choose to undergo a surgical procedure known as tumescent liposuction. This technique is more efficient than the traditional liposuction surgery

Get Rid of Stubborn Fat With Tumescent Liposuction

Most pockets of stubborn fat contain hard and swollen fat globules, which aren’t usually addressed by traditional liposuction. Instead, the use of the more efficient tumescent liposuction is necessary to get rid of them.

The procedure starts with a consultation where your doctor will mark the areas of the body to be treated. Next, based on your medical requirements, he will administer the local or general anesthesia and make the first incision.

Using a long syringe, the doctor will inject a diluted combination of lidocaine and epinephrine into the selected area of your body. This chemical combination will not only numb the area being treated, but will also liquefy the hard pockets of fat.

Next, the doctor will insert a thin cannula that’s attached to a vacuum-like device, into the layer of the skin being treated and will suction out the fat. This process is repeated multiple times in the predesignated areas of the body. By the end of the treatment, you will be free of the stubborn fat that has marred your beauty for so long.

Eligible Candidates For The Tumescent Liposuction Procedure

The tumescent liposuction procedure is ideal for anyone who wants to get rid of excess stubborn fat from difficult areas of the body. You must be in good general health and have realistic expectations to be considered for the surgery. You should also be ready to follow any instructions given to you to ensure the best results possible.

The Benefits of Tumescent Liposuction

Tumescent liposuction offers multiple benefits over traditional liposuction, which makes it so popular with patients. These benefits include:

It can be customized to treat specific areas of the body

Traditional liposuction offers full-body treatment, which may be unnecessary if you don’t have a large mass of fat throughout your body. Tumescent liposuction, on the other hand, can be personalized to target the specific areas of the body you want treated.

There is little to no loss of blood during the procedure

Since the tumescent liposuction involves the injection of thin syringes and cannulas and not surgical incisions, the procedure is minimally invasive and very comfortable. The combination of lidocaine and epinephrine clots the blood and does not allow for blood loss. There is little to no loss of blood during the procedure, making it extremely safe.

Post-treatment recovery is very quick and comfortable

The recovery period is very short and patients can start walking the very next day after the procedure. Minor swelling, bruising, and tenderness are common, which disappear within a week. You may not even need pain medication post-procedure.

Tumescent Liposuction Offers Long-Lasting Results

The tumescent liposuction surgery helps to restore your beautiful and shapely body in no time. The biggest advantage of this procedure is how it can alter fat distribution in your body by reducing your body’s likelihood to develop pockets of stubborn fat in the treated areas. The results are long-lasting and with proper dietary and exercise habits, you can retain the results of the treatment for years to come.
