Ask the Doctor: Tumescent Liposuction

Article-Ask the Doctor: Tumescent Liposuction

Q: If I have tumescent liposuction, when will I be ready to go out in public? I have a cruise scheduled this winter and want to look great for it!a: I usually recommend at least a month from the time of the procedure to the time of the "unveiling." Keep in mind that there are several forms of liposuction, and your dermatologist should perform the tumescent method under local, not general, anesthesia. This method is associated with the lowest complication rate and quickest recovery time.
