Tumescent Liposuction New York City

Tumescent Anesthesia:
the use of tumescent fluid was first described in 1980, and now is used throughout all of our procedures. It has become the most widely used method of anesthesia and infiltration for liposuction throughout plastic surgery.

This method describes the introduction of a dilute solution of lidocaine and epinephrine into the tissues prior to surgery to aid in the anesthesia, to minimize the amount of blood that is lost, and to aid in the production of a smoother result. It may also be combined with other forms of anesthesia: intravenous sedation, or general anesthesia. We routinely combine tumescence with intravenous anesthesia for our procedures.
