Tumescent Liposuction for Fat Reduction
You have multiple options when considering liposuction for fat removal, and not all of these choices have significant results. At Dr. Susan Schroeder’s practice in Colorado Springs, Colorado, tumescent liposuction is performed with the exclusion of all other techniques to achieve your goals. This method of liposuction is performed entirely without general anesthesia and has the highest satisfaction rate of any fat removal procedure available.
What is tumescent liposuction?
Tumescent liposuction is a safe, well-studied procedure first pioneered 35 years ago. Like traditional liposuction, it removes unwanted fat from the body but is performed with local anesthetics and mild sedation, as opposed to general anesthetics, resulting in fewer complications and easier post-op recovery for patients. For patients interested in slimming, reshaping, and contouring specific body areas resistant to changes with diet and exercise, tumescent liposuction has significant advantages.
What is the cost of tumescent liposuction?
Cost is determined by the number of areas and the volume of fat removed to realize a patient’s goals. During the initial consultation appointment, an individual evaluation will allow us to provide you with a more detailed breakdown regarding the financials of this elective procedure. Typically the cost is comparable to multiple (4-5) fat-freezing sessions done with non-invasive devices and is about half that of liposuction performed under general anesthesia.
Who is a good candidate for tumescent liposuction?
Patients who have unwanted fat deposits that they would like addressed should consider undergoing this unique procedure. Patients should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations as to what can be achieved with liposuction. We encourage patients to be within their ideal weight range before undergoing tumescent liposuction, as this is a body contouring procedure, not a weight loss procedure. During a consultation visit, our team can help determine the best procedure to help a patient reach their goals.
What are the benefits of tumescent liposuction?
- Tumescent liposuction allows for permanent changes to the body contours, as fat cells removed are not regenerated.
- Tumescent liposuction is safer and has a reduced recovery time, blood loss, and risk of infection.
- Tumescent liposuction eliminates the need for general anesthesia and IV sedation, allowing patients to stay conscious and comfortable during their procedure
- Tumescent liposuction is more affordable, as added costs for sedation and anesthesia are dramatically reduced.
- Tumescent liposuction allows patients to return to their normal activities sooner than with traditional liposuction methods (usually 3-4 days).
Tumescent liposuction can address various areas of the body, including the stomach, flanks, buttocks, upper thighs, knees, ankles, bra fat, breast size, and even the neck and jawline to eliminate a “double chin.”
