Tumescent Liposuction for Excess Weight

Tumescent liposuction is the original version of liposuction. The body shaping surgery vacuums out isolated pockets of fat through a suctioning device. It is not a solution for couch potatoes or the generally obese – it is a body shaper, not a reducer of overall fatty tissue. It is commonly used on the neck, jowls, arms, abdomen, thighs, knees, and ankles.

Tumescent liposuction takes between 45 minutes and two hours to complete, has a one to two week recovery period, and costs $1,500 to $7,500.
