All liposuction techniques utilize a wetting solution that helps magnify the treated area, decrease blood loss, and in some cases provide a local anesthetic. “tumescent” is used by many to describe the above. In the scientific literature, “tumescent liposuction” is a term used by doctors who perform lipo in their offices and inject roughly 3 times as much fluid in as they remove. Most plastic surgeons use a “superwet” technique which infiltrates approximately equal amounts as one removes.
