Tumescent Liposuction

Tumescent liposuction is a type of cosmetic surgery used to reshape the body by removing large deposits of fat cells, and the costs associated with it are quite reasonable. Tumescent liposuction is generally performed in a surgeon’s office so patients are saved the expense of being in a hospital, which can run as high as £1000. Doctors have been performing the tumescent liposuction for over a decade so they have refined the technique to its safest levels.

During tumescent liposuction, Adrenaline and Lidocaine are pumped into the area of fat to work as an anesthetic and firm the tissue. This keeps the patient comfortable during the surgery as the fat cells are sucked from beneath the skin. These drugs also lessen bleeding and reduce the swelling and bruising that occur during recovery. Once the procedure is finished, patients may have to wear a compression garment for some time, but their measurements in the treatment area should be reduced by several inches. Once the swelling and discoloration fade, patients are normally well pleased with the results of tumescent liposuction. Many choose to return to have other areas of the body re-contoured.

In some areas of the United Kingdom, tumescent liposuction procedures are cheaper than others, but all prices depend on the type of liposuction being performed and the area covered during the surgery. Some procedures can be purchased for as little as £2000, but others may cost up to £3500, especially if several areas are done in combination. Doctors are usually happy to discuss prices for the various procedures during early consultation appointments, and some can even offer a payment plan. The low cost of tumescent liposuction is one of the many benefits that attract patients to it.
