The most common type of liposuction, tumescent liposuction involves your surgeon injecting a sterile solution of salt water, an anesthetic for pain relief, and a drug that causes blood vessels to constrict into the area being treated. The surgeon then inserts the cannula (a thin tube) under skin to suction fat and fluids away. Tumescent is popular because it helps speed up recovery time and may increase positive results. LEARN MORE ā€ŗ

Tumescent Liposculpture under Local & oral sedation

Had my procedure yesterday. I didn't realise just how painful the actual procedure would be. I had it done under local with Hypnovel (versed) as the sedative. The sedative didn't work but I suspect that is because I take Klonopin daily and Zopiclone (lunesta) at night. The infusion of the... READ MORE
