Tumescent liposuction is a technique that involves the use of medical fluids to assist in the comfortable and safe removal of stubborn fat deposits. Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Malik Kutty uses this liposuction technique to help ensure optimal results while simultaneously reducing surgical risks and recovery time. During your initial liposuction consultation, Dr. Kutty can discuss the particulars of this technique to help you determine if it is the right option for your specific needs.
Tumescent fluid contains a mixture of saline (salt water), lidocaine (anesthesia), and epinephrine (adrenaline). Saline helps improve the pressure gradient, allowing for larger amounts of fat to be removed. Epinephrine is a vascular constrictor, helping reduce swelling, bruising, and bleeding. Lidocaine is a very well-tolerated anesthetic, eliminating the need for deep sedation and thereby reducing surgical time, risk, and postoperative recovery.
The use of tumescent fluids allows Dr. Kutty to safely perform liposuction in our office at a fraction of the cost a hospital procedure would require. This not only saves you time and money, it helps protect your privacy while giving our board-certified plastic surgeon and qualified staff complete control over your experience.
Dr. Kutty is dedicated to providing the safest and most effective liposuction procedures available. Tumescent fluids are used in all of our liposuction treatments, allowing us to safeguard your comfort while maximizing your results. We will happily discuss this in greater detail and answer any additional liposuction questions you may have during your body contouring consultation at our Sugar Land office.
