Colorado Springs Tumescent Liposuction Surgery
With non-invasive, sculpting procedures currently in-vogue, you have many options for fat reduction, but liposuction surgery still outperforms all others and remains the gold standard for a slimmer physique. Tumescent liposuction surgery, in particular, is the safest form of liposuction available and is the only fat reduction Dr. Schroeder endorses.
What is Tumescent Liposuction?
Liposuction is a procedure in which localized collections of fat are targeted and removed from the body through tiny excisions by thin, blunt cannulas. It is not a treatment for obesity. Rather, it is an option for cosmetic body contouring to address fat that may not be responding to traditional diet and exercise. This method of liposuction is safer and less invasive than conventional plastic surgery options, as it is performed entirely under local anesthesia with the patient sedated and awake.
With the tumescent technique, a thin cannula is inserted into the area to be treated. This blunt instrument is connected to a specialized machine that suctions fat cells from the cannula and body. Excess fat is easily treated while reducing the risk of significant complications more common with traditional liposuction under general anesthesia. Patients are awake for the procedure and only have local anesthetics used for eliminating the risk of discomfort. Because of the benefits of tumescent anesthesia, patients do not experience the same risks, downtime and recovery seen with conventional surgeries. In fact, patients can achieve the results they want without having to take weeks off work and school to recover and heal.
