The Liposuction Procedure
One of the most common liposuction techniques is tumescent liposuction; it is most commonly performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia.
During tumescent liposuction, a solution comprising saline solution, lidocaine (an anesthetic) and epinephrine (a blood-vessel contractor) is injected into the area being treated. The solution causes the targeted tissue swell and become firm, which makes it easier to remove via the cannula. The advantages to this technique are that the anesthetic is built in for post-operative comfort and blood loss is minimized because the epinephrine constricts blood vessels.
