Tumescent liposuction is a time-tested and incredibly effective way to remove stubborn fat deposits while minimizing impact to surrounding tissue. With tumescent liposuction, Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeon Dr. Andre Berger injects a dilute solution of medical fluids into the treatment area, causing the fat to swell and harden. By making the area tumescent, the full removal of fat deposits is made easier, allowing for reliably attractive results.

Benefits of Tumescent Liposuction
The medical fluids injected into the treatment area for tumescent liposuction contain localized anesthetic, which is able to produce complete comfort without deep sedation. By eliminating the need for IV sedation, tumescent liposuction also eliminates the surgical risks associated with it.
In addition, benefits offered by this advanced liposuction technique include:
- More effective fat removal
- Reduced impact to surrounding tissue
- Reduced surgical risks including excessive bleeding
- Less postoperative bruising and swelling
- Ideal cosmetic results
Recovery from tumescent liposuction is often much shorter than with traditional techniques due to reductions in damage to surrounding tissue. What you can realistically expect and how long your recovery may take will be discussed in greater detail during your initial consultation with Dr. Berger.
Tumescent Liposuction Candidates
Good candidates for tumescent liposuction should be:
- In generally good physical health
- Prepared for a surgical procedure
- Willing to follow pre and postoperative instructions
The best way to learn if you are a good candidate for this or any other body contouring procedure is to meet with Dr. Berger for a confidential evaluation and consultation. During this meeting Dr. Berger will take time to understand your desires, carefully assess your problem areas, and suggest the liposuction techniques best suited to help you reach your goals.
