Liposuction (Klein Technique) - By Tumescent Liposuction
Improve the body’s contour with Tumescent Liposuction.
If you generally maintain a stable weight but struggle with troublesome areas, liposuction could be the answer you have been looking for.
The Vein and Skin Clinic offers the latest, safest form of liposuction.
Tumescent liposuction is designed to target those spots that do not shrink to the proportion of your body after diet and exercise.
The idea is to reach the fatty deposits between the skin and muscle, which is known as subcutaneous fat.
Developed by Dr Jeffrey A Klein, M.D. in 1985, Tumescent Liposuction is now considered the safest form of Liposuction for removing large amounts of fat. It involves the use of a small stainless steel tube, called a cannula, which is inserted through small skin adits (2mm size holes). Large quantities of fat cells are sucked out, leaving tunnels which then collapse in on themselves, pulling any remaining fat and tissue in tighter, as well as encouraging skin tightening so that the overall effect is to greatly improve body shape and appearance.
Where surgeons once used general anaesthesia to perform Liposuction treatments, only a local anaesthesia is now required. Not only is there is virtually no blood loss, but this procedure also requires no stitches, so that the tiny wounds heal by themselves and virtually disappear over time.
It doesn’t matter if you are a size 8 or a size 18, there are minimal limitations in weight or age are when it comes to being a “good candidate” for liposuction as long as your skin tone is reasonable. If you have issues with bodily disproportion then, tumescent liposuction will work for you.
We have treated hundreds of patients with the tumescent liposuction technique, with great rates of success. Remember, fat cells that are removed by liposuction do not grow back. As long as you, the patient, do not gain excessive amounts of weight, the new, more pleasing silhouette can be permanent.
