Will I be able to undergo pure tumescent liposuction under general anesthesia? I am a 48-year-old male. I would hate to wake up or be aware of what is going on.
You can undergo tumescent liposuction under general anesthesia. The SlimLipo procedure that I perform is also performed under tumescent anesthesia with a mild oral sedative. I would suggest using a mild IV sedation with the tumescent liposuction instead of general anesthesia to reduce the risks associated with general anesthesia and liposuction such as deep venous thrombosis.
