What are the advantages of tumescent liposuction over traditional liposuction?

  • Local anesthesia is used instead of IV sedation or general anesthesia, eliminating IV-related side effects and complications
  • Shorter recovery time
  • Less fluid and blood loss with no need for IV fluid replacement
  • Smoother result, minimizing need for a follow-up treatment
  • Less swelling and bruising after the procedure
  • Smaller incisions resulting to lesser scarring

Who needs liposuction?

Healthy men and women who are not able to lose stubborn fat even with diet and exercise are good candidates for liposuction. Liposuction is for people who want to have a leaner body and are searching for a safe treatment that comes with minimal downtime.

How does liposuction work?

During tumescent liposuction, a mixture of local anesthetic and epinephrine is injected into the treatment area. The solution numbs the area and constricts blood vessels minimizing risk of bleeding. General anesthesia is not needed in tumescent liposuction. A relaxant may also be administered to reduce anxiety. Patient comfort can be increased by injecting a pain medication.

Dr. Nowak uses the power-assisted technology, at his office in Chula Vista, which swiftly moves through the tissues and removes small amounts of fat at a time. The movement creates a vibration that most patients describe as similar to getting a massage, increasing patient comfort.

After the area has been infused with tumescent solution, a small tube called a cannula is inserted into one or more tiny, inconspicuous incision and the unwanted fat is suctioned away.

The procedure does not require stitches because incisions are so small and close up naturally. The entire procedure takes 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on the areas being treated.

In addition, Dr. Nowak utilizes the power-assisted technology which rapidly moves through the tissue removing small amounts of fat at a time. This movement creates a vibration that some patients describe as being similar to a massage providing greater patient comfort.


What can I expect after my liposuction procedure?

Swelling or bruising may be present after treatment, but they are only temporary and gradually fade away. Some of the numbing liquid used during the procedure is absorbed by the body and some may drain from the incision site within 24-48 hours. The fluid may be reddish or pink in color but has little to no blood. It normally takes six weeks for a patient to fully recover from a liposuction treatment, but improvement is noticeable almost immediately after treatment.

Furthermore, patients are encouraged to walk and get moving a day after treatment. It is often known as a “weekend procedure” where the patient can get the procedure on a Thursday or a Friday and go back to work on Monday or Tuesday. A pressure garment may have to be worn for days or weeks after the procedure to help skin contract and hasten the recovery process.
