Abdominal Liposuction-Techniques involved and Recovery

Most of the men and women get the abdominal liposuction done on their stomach area to get a flatter abdominal area. Under any normal circumstances, the excess fat gets accumulated around the area of the abdomen almost on all sides irrespective of the gender.


In general abdominal liposuction is not used as a weight reduction technique. However, majority of the people resort to abdominal liposuction procedure as a final alternative after trying various other weight reduction programmes.

Though they have derived many significant benefits from such exercise programmes, they were not able to get rid of their excess flab around their abdomen and hence decide to go for the abdominal liposuction programme.

Tumescent Liposuction – a common technique

Amongst the various available abdominal liposuction procedures, the tumescent liposuction is the most commonly used technique. The word tumescent means “swollen” and aptly refers to the excess flab around the stomach area.

Under this technique only local anesthesia is administered in the place of general anesthesia and hence the disadvantages of cost and risk that are associated with the general anesthesia are totally eliminated. Besides this, the blood loss and the level of trauma that one has to undergo are totally reduced to a more tolerable level.

In Tumescent technique, doctors use only a mild local anesthesia for injecting into the area where the abdominal liposuction procedure is to be carried out. Once the local anesthesia is administered, the target area will become numb and bleeding of blood is also controlled.

The purpose of injecting the tumescent solution into the fat tissues before performing the abdominal liposuction procedure is mainly to pump up the fatty tissues and to make the liposuction procedure easy with reduced bleeding.

Two Kinds of Abdominal Fat

When it comes to know about the types of abdominal fat, there are two kinds of them – they are intra-abdominal fat and subcutaneous fat.

Subcutaneous fat lies immediately beneath the skin and the intra-abdominal fat is located much deep in the abdominal area and inside the intestinal loops near an area what is called mesentery.

Any abdominal liposuction procedure is not carried out to remove or eliminate the intra-abdominal fat and the procedure is meant for removal of subcutaneous fat only.
