BBL and Tumescent fluid, is it safe?

Yes, Tumescent fluid is routinely used in all BBL procedures and in fact it would be unsafe not use it. It prevents excess bleeding and allows the fat to be properly harvested.

No, tumescent fluid is not bad for you.

In fact, it is used by the vast majority of experts in fat transfer. I can't imagine not using fluid in these cases.


hope this helps.

Tumescent fluid is safe in fat transfer for Brazilian Butt lift

Tumescent fluid is absolutely safe to use for Brazilian Butt lift and any other fat grafting procedures.  Tumescent fluid is used during the liposuction portion of the procedure (in fact, it is necessary for successful liposuction).  It helps control pain and allows your plastic surgeon to remove the desired amount of fat.  Before fat grafting, most tumescent fluid is removed.  However, there is absolutely nothing in tumescent fluid that will dissolve fat and it is not unhealthy for you.
