A beautiful, youthful appearance is what people strive for to maintain their attractiveness. There are many factors that come with aging that blemish our skin and tarnish its fresh look. There are also many treatments to restore its once-vigorous luster.
Millions of women find dimpled patches of skin on their legs, thighs, buttocks and other areas of their body. These marks, known as cellulite, are on up to 90% of women's bodies. They are lumpy fat deposits that form underneath the visible skin, caused by hormones, genetics, diet and exercise.
Liposuction is a surgical procedure that alters the body's appearance by removing excess fat from deposits between muscle and skin. The fat is extracted by a suction pump attached to a stainless steel tube (a cannula), creating a firmer look and feel.
There are many forms of liposuction that only take a few hours, and they have minimal downtime and recovery periods. Some are non-invasive, thus have little to no scarring.
What is Tumescent Liposuction?
Tumescent Liposuction is a method of liposuction that involves injecting a large volume of diluted local anesthetic (lidocaine with epinephrine, a capillary constrictor) into the fatty areas of the skin, making the tissue swollen and firm. It can be used on the neck and jowels, arms, abdomen, buttocks, hips, inner and outer thighs, knees, legs, flanks (love handles) and enlarged male breasts. It is the most commonly performed version of liposuction.
Fluids are provided to the body through the subcutaneous injection, which contain a saline solution to break apart fat and constrict capillaries. The procedure eliminates the use of general anesthesia, pain medication (in the form of IVs narcotics), and sedatives, and the constricted capillaries prevent surgical blood loss.
