Tumescent Liposuction

A Gentle Alternative to Fat Removal
Tumescent liposuction was developed to reduce excess localized fat deposits in a gentler manner than traditional liposuction surgery. It is an excellent choice for fat removal due to it’s immediate results, low risk, high comfort level and great patient satisfaction rates. Dr. Lamberts has been performing tumescent liposuction since 2005. He added this procedure to his practice after much research and was specially trained by leaders in the field.

Tumescent Liposuction before and after pictures

Although tumescent liposuction removes fat through a cannula, it is much different from traditional liposuction. A micro cannula (the medical device used to remove fat) is used, which is significantly smaller. The incision site is 1 - 2 mm, so small no stitches are needed.

The procedure is performed in Dr. Lamberts’ office in a special treatment suite created specifically for surgical procedures. The atmosphere is relaxed and spa like, with patients frequently commenting that they enjoyed the experience. Before tumescent liposuction is performed, the treatment area is injected with warmed liquid anesthetic that swells and firms fat. This added step allows for more precise treatment, smoother results and less post-operative pain due to the lingering effects of the anesthetic. Afterward patients are able to walk out of the office and return to their normal routine in a few days. A light compression garment is worn for 3 - 4 days and Tylenol is taken as needed for discomfort. There is much less trauma than with traditional liposuction, so bruising, swelling and pain are minimal to nonexistent. Patients see results immediately, but will continue to improve and notice optimal results in about 3 months.
