In brief: Safety & Recovery

Tumescent liposuction involves the administration of dilute local anesthetic with adrenaline to limit blood loss and swell the fat tissue.
True tumescent lipo uses only local anesthesia.Tumescent liposuction is safer because it doesnt require general anesthesia, there is less blood loss and there is a more rapid recovery.

In brief: Less blood loss

Tumescence reduced blood loss in any type of liposuction: syringe, power assisted, vacuum assisted, ultrasonic, vaser etc.
It also makes fat removal easier.

In brief: In

In a word - safety.
Tumescent lipo is often done under light sedation and is thus much safer in most situations.
