Tumescent Tummy Tuck Abdominoplasty
There are many types of sculpture of the abdominal wall. When loose
skin and muscles are part of the problem, mini-tuck or tummy tuck tightening may be needed. Liposuction alone can leave loose redundant skin and stretched muscles. Mini-tuck
abdominoplasty can deal with a small amount of loose skin.
Tumescent techniques of liposuction have revolutionized recovery after
this fat sculpture with less bruising, swelling, and after surgery discomfort.
Mini-tuck abdominoplasty recovery is very much like liposuction when tumescent
techniques are employed. Local anesthesia infiltration of incisions has
been a common technique for years. Blending some of the tumescent techniques
into tummy tuck can result in:
- less bleeding during surgery
- less bruising
- increased patient comfort after surgery
- possible use of sedation instead of general anesthesia in operating

The public rarely gets a chance to see pictures of what happens during tummy tuck abdominal surgery. The surgery can just
look too "gross" with the extent of dissection and the blood
tinged tissues. With during surgery videos on television, many have asked
Dr. Bermant for greater details about tummy tuck. With the tumescent tummy
tuck, images of surgery can be shown detailing this abdominal sculpture.
