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 ›

So Depressed! - La Jolla, CA

I had liposuction (I don't know if it was tumescent) 8/22/16 by Dr. John G. Apostolides at DEFY Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery. Almost three months later I am still really disappointed. He told me he took out 1 liter (big deal) of fat. That's equivalent to 2.2 lbs. He told me there is... READ MORE

Upper/Lower Abs - Brooklyn, NY

I went to the consultation last week, I purchased a deal for one area (which I was going to use for my lower abs). Dr Voskin was very nice but he told me I need to do the upper as well or it would just look weird. He also told me to consider doing my sides (love handles) but I am pretty set on... READ MORE

Irregularities/lumps Since Day 1(!) from Painful Tumescent Vibro Liposuction - Belgium

I'm 3 days post tumescent liposuction. 1 liter of fat removed : upper + lower abdomen, flanks and lower back (I'm 163 cm tall and weigh 53 kg). Since day 1, I have those irregularities/lumps/bumps. Is it normal to have those irregularities already from the beginning? I'm told by my surgeon to... READ MORE

32 Years Old, 2 Kids, Csection Muffin Top Removal - San Diego, CA

Csection muffin top was a huge issue since I've always had a fairly small stomach until my last son ruined that for me!

37 y/o, Goodbye muffin top! 5'2', 186 lbs, Dr. Ladipo

I've been to 5 or 6 consultations looking for a doctor to perform lipo on my upper/lower stomach, flanks, and bra roll. I finally narrowed it down to two local doctors, since I didn't want to drive too far for appts. There was one doctor in Stockbridge that I was interested in, but when I... READ MORE

Lipo - One and Done - Paradise Valley, AZ

I decided after fighting losing the same 5 # for years and even after losing it not looking much different than I would take the plunge and do lipo - my husband had already had his love handles done, so he was very supportive - while the results are not 'perfect' and were not advertised to be -...

Saddle Bags and More... GONE - Woodbury, MN

I am 49 years old and have hated my saddle bag thighs since I was a teenager weighing 120 lbs. OF course they've grown with age and weight gain. But they've always been there. My inner thighs rubbed together making it hard to wear shorts because they would bunch up in the crotch. During my... READ MORE

Lipo of Abdomen, Flanks, Upper Back/Gynecomastia - Fairfax, VA

Bottom Line Up Front: Not happy w/results in relation to the amount of time spent working out. With that being said I'm a 47y/o man who leads a active lifestyle and eats clean. By that I mean nothing fried and no red meat but not to the extreme of counting calories and weighing portions. I... READ MORE

Still Swollen Yet Already Loving my Lipo! - Stuart, FL

My 'gobbler' double chin runs in my family. You look at any woman in the family - young or old - and we all have it. I always hated it and knew it made me look older than I actually am. I have a slim body and if you only looked at my face you would think I was about 20 pounds heavier. I was... READ MORE

Ideally a Tummy Tuck Candidate - Brooklyn, NY

After my consultation with Dr. Voskin, I was a bit concerned about whether it would be worth spending my hard earned money on a liposuction of the full abdomen. This doubt stemmed from the fact that he told me that based on the condition of my skin, my age (35), and the fact that I have two kids... READ MORE

But really worried about the pre-surgery cocktail of drugs. I am hyper sensitive to medication and I am scared about the Vicodin/Xanax cocktail the half hour before the procedure.

I am 43, 5'8'', about 130 lbs. Slim, but my legs were always bulky, and I was never been comfortable in clothing that showed my legs.
