Liposuction using Tumescent Anesthesia (Liposculpture) in Fort Lauderdale
Liposuction using Tumescent Anesthesia (Liposculpture) is performed by instilling dilute solutions into the fatty areas to be treated. The fluid anesthetizes the tissue and significantly decreases bleeding. The procedure can thus be performed while the patient is awake with minimal discomfort and a quicker recovery. Most people can return to work and normal activities within two to three days. The results can be dramatic.
By utilizing the tumescent technique, liposculpture can be performed in an office-based setting while the patient is awake. It is no longer a requirement that patients be put to sleep using general anesthetics nor do they need to be admitted to a hospital for the procedure. Moreover, these new techniques, especially, SmartLipo, allow patients to return to normal activities more rapidly than when the older methods were used. It is safer and provides improved results for smoother and tighter skin.
