Tumescent Liposuction

The concept of liposuction is surprisingly simple. Liposuction surgically improves the body’s contour by removing excess fat located between the skin and muscle. For many people who have inherited accumulations of fat, liposuction is the only realistic means of significantly changing the body’s silhouette. True Tumescent Liposuction offers:

  • Better and smoother results–using micro-cannulas.
  • Safer–all local anesthesia, no IV sedation, virtually no blood loss.
  • Decreased post-operative discomfort.
  • Resume normal activities within only 2 days.


Tumescent Liposuction can treat the abdomen, arms, love handles, hips, thighs, knees, calves, chin, and male pectoral area. Fat that is removed by Tumescent Liposuction never comes back. As long as the individual does not gain excessive amounts of weight, the new silhouette is permanent. When a patient who has undergone liposuction gains weight, the areas originally treated by liposuction maintain their new desirable silhouette, whereas areas not treated by liposuction show new deposits of fat. Dr. Parish can further discuss the benefits of Tumescent Liposuction during your consultation.

The best candidates are those who are in good health and are within 30 pounds of their ideal weight. Most patients have localized accumulations of fat, therefore, it is important to emphasize that liposuction is not a treatment for generalized obesity. Liposuction is not effective for people who are unable to maintain a reasonable weight by dieting.

True Tumescent Liposuction is the safest form of liposuction, according to the Academy of Cosmetic Surgery. There have been no major complications with the True Tumescent Technique. The Tumescent Liposuction technique is now considered the safest form of liposuction because it allows the removal of large amounts of fat with virtually no blood loss. There is also minimal downtime with Tumescent Liposuction and you can resume normal daily activities in a couple of days.

All liposuction consultations are complimentary.  All procedures are performed in our AAAHC accredited outpatient facility.
