Dr Lanzer has been using Tumescent anaesthetic for many years now when performing Liposuction melbourne procedures. The tumescent anaesthetic has three main properties which have made it so successful to use during liposuction melbourne procedures and these include; maintaining a fluid balance in the body, numbing the area being treated and reducing blood loss. The fluid balance is important during liposuction because when performing the procedure on large areas we may be taking up to 4 liters of fast from a patient. This would be a large amount to remove without replacing it with something and would leave the patient feeling very unwell and lead to further complications. The fluid contains local anaesthetic with acts as a numbing agent so whilst the patient is having a local anesthetic procedure they are able to tolerate it quite comfortably and post local or general anesthetic the patient’s pain is more easily managed. The tumescent fluid reduces blood loss because it contains adrenaline which constricts the blood vessels, reducing the amount of bleeding.
Dr Lanzer is now utilising the advantages of tumescent fluid in other procedures including; Tummy Tucks, Mini Facelifts and Breast Augmentation. When performing a Tummy Tuck, Dr Lanzer firstly performs tumescent liposuction melbourne. By injecting tumescent fluid in to the stomach prior to the Tummy Tuck procedure, the blood vessels are already constricted, so blood loss is kept to a minimum. This is much better for the patient both during the procedure and recovery. When performing Mini Facelifts, Dr Lanzer injects a smaller amount of tumescent fluid in to the area, reducing bleeding and providing anesthetic to the area. The patients wake up with less pain post procedure than when no fluid is used. The need for stronger pain relief post procedure is reduced, therefore also reducing nausea and vomiting.
Breast reduction is usually performed under general anaesthetic in most cases. In some cases, when the reduction is only small, the surgeon may opt for local anaesthetic with sedation depending on your individual circumstance.
