Tumescent Liposuction

Do you want to reshape your abdomen or thighs with liposuction? Tumescent liposuction stands as a tried-and-true method in the world of body contouring, offering a safe and effective approach to sculpting your desired silhouette. This type of liposuction involves injecting a tumescent solution into the target area before the fat removal process begins. This solution typically contains a mixture of saline (saltwater), lidocaine (a local anesthetic), and epinephrine (a medication that constricts blood vessels). The tumescent solution helps numb the area, minimize blood loss, and facilitate the removal of fat with greater ease.

Dr. Aleksandr Shteynberg, a double board-certified plastic surgeon celebrated for his expertise in body contouring, utilizes tumescent liposuction as a cornerstone of his practice at Vantage Plastic Surgery. This technique, refined over years of experience, allows for precise and sculpted results while prioritizing patient safety.

Advantages of Tumescent Liposuction

  • Minimized Discomfort

The tumescent solution includes a local anesthetic, providing pain relief during and after the procedure. This helps minimize discomfort, making the experience more tolerable for patients.

  • Reduced Blood Loss

The addition of epinephrine in the tumescent solution helps constrict blood vessels, resulting in significantly reduced blood loss during the procedure. This contributes to a safer and more controlled environment.

  • Enhanced Precision

The tumescent solution also helps to firm up the targeted area, allowing for more precise fat removal. This precision is essential for achieving natural-looking and well-defined contours.

  • Quicker Recovery

With minimized trauma to the treated area, patients often experience a faster recovery compared to traditional liposuction methods. Reduced swelling and bruising contribute to a quicker return to daily activities.
