Benefits of Tumescent Liposuction

Columbus Tumescent Liposuction

According to a survey conducted by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), standard tumescent liposuction is the most preferred method of liposuction. Dr. Jeffery Klein, a dermatologist, developed the technique in the mid-1980s. At that time, all liposuction procedures were performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Klein thought that the use of a local anesthetic would be beneficial, at least in patients that need smaller volumes of fat removed. He found that the use of local anesthetic significantly reduced post-operative side effects, and that local anesthetic could be used on patients needing larger volumes of fat removed. During the next few years, Dr. Klein refined the tumescent liposuction technique, and began educating other physicians about this exciting development in the field.
