Tumescent liposuction could be performed on abdomen, thighs- both inner and outer, arms, flanks and buttocks. The procedure basically involves the intravenous injection of a mixture of local anesthetics and tumescent drugs that is also called the wet and super wet technique depending on the amount of the mixture been injected, that is to prepare the targeted area with a stiff and expanded characteristic that allows good precision of the surgery and less bruising, as the prepared area is incised with as many as tiny 1-5mm punctures and a thin hollow metallic cannula specially designed for this purpose is inserted through the incisions inside till the deep layers of the hard and sticky fatty tissues. Further than this cannula is moved back and forth the fat layers to break it down and it sort of gets churned like frozen butter would. Once the plastic surgeon is satisfied with the breaking down of the fat, then it is drained out of the targeted area with an aspirator via a tube attached with the canulla that now works as a straw.
This is the basic modem of the procedure of traditional/
Now the meaning of traditional liposuction dates with SAL that is done under tumescent anesthesia. Tumescent anesthesia or wet anesthesia is still the best anesthetic or technique of liposuction, which technologies have been, introduced with third and fourth generation liposuction technologies like Vaser liposuction and Smart Lipo and fourth generation Vaser hi def and Smart Lipo MPX and body etching technology.
Smart lipo launches laser beams to be generated in the cannula that shoots into the fatty tissues and instead of churning up the fatty layers melts it down into a smooth liquid that allows the surgeon some ease than to manually break the fat and also to drain out fat more smoothly. Furthermore the smart lipo device can also cauterize any excess skin and form a smooth flatness to the area.
Vaser liposuction uses the ultrasound technology to be utilized to melt down body fat till the deep layers that other techniques find hard to reach. Vaser liposuction does its work with most minimal invasiveness and allows quick healing.
