Q:What is tumescent local anesthesia?
A: Local anesthesia drug is diluted in large quantity of saline fluid and injected in fat layer is called tumescence. This gives excellent anesthesia on fat layer in fully awake patient. The patient is fully awake. The muscle layer immediate below fat is not anesthetized hence act as safety layer as against patient under total general anesthesia.
Q: How a typical surgery day is like?
A: A day before surgery, laboratory tests and anesthesia safety screening in completed to know that you are medically fit. You report at 9am for surgery. After consent and documentation you are taken to our fully equipped operating room. After surgical scrubbing of the part being treated, tumescent local anesthesia fluid is infiltrated by an infusion pump. It takes around one hour. Then very small metal tube called micro-canulae are inserted through a tiny key-holes made at strategic locations attached to a suction device. With to and fro motion of canulae fat is aspirated. It takes around an hour and half to two hours. You are awake through out moving on sides to have adequate balancing of volume suctioned on both side. After cleaning a pressure garment a worn covering treated area and you WALK OUT to operating area. You can take tea, coffee or a meal immediately after coming out. (in fact can have a juice or chocolate during surgery also.)
This is how amazingly a fearful surgery is made so simple!
Q: What is to be expected after a SafeLIPO procedure?
A: You WALK OUT to your home at 4 pm. Please don't drive yourself as anesthesia fluid is still present in the suctioned area. Have somebody to carry you, drive your car or take a cab. Pain is NOT expected after surgery. Even a pain killer tablet is rarely needed. Copious red colored fluid discharge is expected in first couple of days. This is the anesthesia fluid along with permanently damaged fat cells. Continue wearing your pressure garment on regular basis. Though you are fit to resume your work on very next day, we advise you to take a rest for a day or two. After all, rest improves healing after any surgery.
