Also known as Tumescent Liposuction, AWAKE Liposuction is a popular procedure because the patient remains conscious during the procedure. This means that you can communicate with the surgeon throughout the procedure, which helps to ensure that the surgery is as effective as possible, reducing the need for potential touchups. AWAKE Liposuction is also a more cost-effective procedure for many patients than regular liposuction, since it is an outpatient procedure and does not require a hospital stay.
During the procedure, the surgeon will begin by making a series of small incisions. Then, a special solution will be injected into the fatty layer of your skin, tightening the tissue to reduce bleeding and help the surgeon remove excess fat more effectively. Local anesthetic is used to ensure the patient’s comfort. Once the contouring process is complete, the incisions are closed.
