Micro tumescent liposuction Q & A

What is micro tumescent liposuction?

Micro tumescent liposuction is a fat removal procedure that’s minimally invasive and doesn’t require general anesthesia. During the treatment, Dr. Robinson inserts narrow cannulas (tubes) into small openings he creates in your skin. The fat cells in the region are then suctioned out through the cannulas.

Prior to the fat removal, Dr. Robinson infuses local anesthesia into the targeted area. The local anesthesia numbs your skin and tissues.

After your micro tumescent liposuction surgery at The New Body Center, you may return to work just 2-3 days later. The results are permanent as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, including exercise, a balanced diet, and adequate sleep. 


Which areas can micro tumescent liposuction treat?

Micro tumescent liposuction treats nearly any area of your body that accumulates some extra fat. Even if you dedicate yourself to weight management, small pockets of body fat can remain despite your best efforts. Micro Tumescent Liposuction can treat these regions or any area of extra body fat. 

Commonly targeted areas to treat with micro tumescent liposuction are:

  • Abdomen
  • Hips and flanks
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Arms
  • Chin and neck

While micro tumescent liposuction is quite versatile, it’s important not to think of it as a weight-loss treatment. The number on the scale won’t significantly decrease, but you can enjoy a more proportionate figure. 


What are the benefits of micro tumescent liposuction?

Micro tumescent liposuction is less invasive. Between its minimally invasive nature and the lack of general anesthesia, micro tumescent liposuction offers a wide range of advantages. 

Benefits to consider are:

  • A speedy recovery
  • Less postoperative pain
  • Less bruising
  • No stitches
  • No side effects from general anesthesia

Larger areas of fat are best reserved for traditional liposuction, but micro tumescent liposuction has considerable benefits if you’re looking to remove smaller sections of body fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise.
