What is Liposuction?

Liposuction, or in medical terms called lipoplasty, is a mild surgical technique that is designed to remove fat from under the skin, from specific areas of the human body. It involves the use of a vacuum-suction canula (which looks like a hollow pen-like instrument) or using an ultrasonic probe that soften the fat in the specific areas and then suck it out of the body system. Liposuction is most commonly performed on areas of the body that naturally tend to store fat cells, that is, hips, thighs, buttocks, and abdomen. But this procedure can also be used on the arms, cheeks, and neck.

The technique of Liposuction has been available for some time now, most specifically for over 18 years already, but the popularity for this procedure only began to start in the recent years with new technology and improved surgical innovations. Among these, tumescent liposuction is one of the biggest reasons why more and more people are lining up to get this procedure done. Also, Dr. Pasquale’s ability to be more precise, in targeting the fat to remove, and greatly shorten recovery times, is also major reason for the popularity of this procedure at his clinic, in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Tumenescent Liposuction

Tumescent liposuction, or what is popularly known as the Tumescent Technique, mainly refers to the liposuction procedure that involves using large volumes of a dilute saline solution of lidocaine, a local anesthetic, in combination with the drug epinephrine, which is responsible in temporarily shrinking the blood capillaries. This solution is infiltrated into the tissue where liposuction will be performed.

This Tumescent Technique is very popular because it minimizes the post-operative pain to a large extent and bruising.. Also, through this procedure, there is virtually no bleeding, and that in turn, minimizes post-operative recovery time.

Tumescent liposuction technique has revolutionized the liposuction procedure making it safer and more comfortable. Older techniques such as what is known as "dry” technique commonly left patients very bruised and sore. This is not found with tumescent commonly.
