Liposuction using local anesthesia Lima Peru Clinic Arroyo Goldstein

Is tumescent liposcution painful?

The only discomfort you will feel are the initial pinches when we begin to numb the area. These are not even as painful as getting your blood drawn. Once the area is numbed, you won't feel anything.

Recovery after tumescent liposuction is actually far less painful than traditional liposuction since the local numbing wears off slowly and provides lasting pain control. Also, there is no nausea or sick feeling that sometimes occurs after sedation.

Is tumescent liposuction safe?

Liposculpture done with only local anesthesia has an outstanding safety record. In a very large study following 15,000 patients, not a single one had a serious complication or infection. On the other hand, liposuction done under anesthesia or sedation can lead to serious injury or death.

Are the results from tumescent liposuction permanent?

Yes. You are born with a limited number of fat cells. Once they are removed by liposuction, they will not come back.

What happens if I gain weight after having tumescent liposuction?

The weight will be distributed to the remaining fat cells in your body. Some fat cells will remain in an area treated by liposculpture, and those fat cells will enlarge proportionately as well.

What is the recovery like after tumescent liposuction?

Recovery is fast, and this is one of the biggest advantages of performing liposculpture using only local anesthesia. You will be able to walk immediately after the procedure. Most patients are able to return to work the next day.

How long after tumescent liposuction until I see results?

You should see 80 - 90% of your final result in 4 weeks.
