What is tumescent liposuction? Los Angeles Plastic Surgeon and Expert Liposuction Surgeon

What is tumescent liposuction?

There are many options for liposuction surgery offered in our Los Angeles plastic surgery practice.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is a double board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in liposuction surgery and body contouring.  His comprehensive approach to liposuction maximizes results and minimizes surgical scarring after the procedure.  Tumescent liposuction is a surgical technique used in liposuction surgery wherein a solution of lidocaine, saline, and Novocaine are used to anesthetize the areas of unwanted fat prior to liposuction.  Most types of liposuction surgery require tumescent anesthetic during the procedure. 


Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian performs tumescent liposuction in conjunction with ultrasonic liposuction, laser liposuction and micro-sculpt liposuction.  If you have concerns regarding unwanted areas of fat, he can provide you with many options regarding the appropriate type of liposuction procedure available.  By offering all different types of liposuction, Dr. Karamanoukian can custom tailor a surgical approach that maximizes your outcome.  During your consultation, Dr. Karamanoukian will evaluate your pattern of unwanted fat and recommend options for anesthesia and liposuction during your procedure.  Our office contains a fully accredited operating room that maximizes safety and standards during your liposuction treatment.  Dr. Karamanoukian also recommends a procedure known as micro-sculpt liposuction in which tiny incisions are used to sculpt a specific unwanted area of fat.  If you are concerned about overall weigh gain and wish to contour enlarged areas of your body including the waistline, hips, thighs, and abdomen, there are options available for tumescent liposuction, ultrasonic liposuction, and laser assisted liposuction.
