Tumescent Technique

Tumescent Technique

Tumescent technique makes surgery safer, usually more accurate, and results in easier recoveries. It can be used for most cosmetic surgery. Tumescent techniqiue of anesthetia is one of the main miracles of cosmetic surgery in the 1990s. Without Tumescent technique, we would not be able to perform many of the procedures described in this book as comfortable in-office surgeries. Without it, many procedures would necessitate additional expense for an anesthesiologist and possible side effects of general anesthesia, such as nausea and vomiting.

Without the Tumescent technique , there would be more bleeding during surgery, more post-operative discomfort, and more bruising during recovery. Tumescent anesthesia is a liquid solution which is injected into the fat tissue located directly under the skin. It''s taken into the rest of the body slowly, and provides a localized effect. It''s not injected into the bloodstream as many other types of anesthesia are. Log on to find how the Tumescent technique works.

The numbing sensation you feel in your mouth when you have a tooth filled is the same kind of numbing you feel with tumescent. For hair transplants, we use more adrenaline, because the scalp has a lot more blood vessels and needs more constriction to prevent bleeding. For facial surgery, we again use a slightly different concentration of lidocaine and adrenaline. We often use tumescent in combination with other medicines. For example, in many cases, when preparing patients for surgery, we''ll give them a sedative such as Valium to help them relax. This is very important because most patients are nervous. Many times we''ll also give an intravenous pain reliever like Demerol to relax them even further. This helps them to be less aware of what''s going on around them, and enables them to drift off to sleep if they choose.

One of the key advantages of keeping the patient relatively awake in this Tumescent technique is that he or she can position for the doctor so the doctor can see just what is happening to the "sculpture" during the procedure. The patient can even stand up at the end of the case to check how good the result is. This isn''t possible when general anesthetic is used. Tumescent is taking a while to catch on in the medical community, as do most new techniques, but it''s an amazing tool. When used properly, the Tumescent technique is one of the safest ways to operate.
