Tumescent liposuction is a body-sculpting procedure that injects a large volume of fluid with local anesthetic and adrenaline into the tissue. This process shrinks capillaries, which reduces bleeding, and hardens fat, making it easier to remove. It is the preferred method of nearly all plastic surgeons performing liposuction, as it also reduces recovery time. LEARN MORE ›
