Those who choose outpatient awake liposuction find it to be very beneficial. Awake liposuction, also known as Tumescent liposuction begins with the surgeon injecting a special solution into the fatty layer of the patient’s skin. The solution tightens the tissue which helps to reduce bleeding and aids the surgeon in removing the excess fat. Instead of using a general or local anesthetic a minimal oral sedation is used that is is less stressful for the patient’s system, and aids in a quicker recovery.
Awake Liposuction – A Safe Procedure
Safety is the most important benefit to choosing outpatient awake liposuction. . Often times patients are not able to undergo liposuction procedures due to health issues. Awake liposuction allows individuals that have the sensitivity to general anesthesia to safely achieve their body contouring goals. Patients typically experience less bleeding and reduced bruising with awake liposuction as well.
Fast Recovery from Awake Liposuction
General anesthesia requires patients to undergo a short recovery period. This lasts several hours to overnight stays. Patients may experience severe nausea, vomiting, and throat irritation after receiving general anesthesia.
Awake liposuction uses minimal oral sedation which allows the surgery to be performed as an outpatient procedure. Patients can return to their home the same day and their body recovers much faster not having to rebound from the effects of general anesthesia.
