The Tumescent Liposuction technique has become more main stream in the last couple of years because of the ease and benefits in comparison to older more traditional methods. The procedure is made possible by injecting a substantial amount of dilute local anesthetic along with very dilute adrenaline that eliminates blood loss, and allows for a comfortable experience while offering effective results. One of the main benefits of this method is that the minimal bleeding associated with the procedure allowsfor minimal swelling or bruising.

The procedure allows for minimal downtime, in that a patient can return to work a few days after the procedure and return to a normal lifestyle within two weeks (Working out included). As always a compression garment is necessary after treatment.

Between the multiple trainings that Dr. Caldera has had in liposuction, includes having Dr. Jeffrey Klein as a mentor and instructor in the Tumescent Technique. Dr. Jeffrey Klein, is the father and inventor of the Tumescent anesthesia technique.



  • Less Blood Loss
  • Intravenous fluid replacement is not necessary
  • Bacteriostatic lidocaine may decrease the risk of infections
  • Tumescence magnifies defects; therefore, the likelihood of needing a secondary procedure may be less
  • Lipid-soluble lidocaine is somewhat suctioned out with the aspirated fat.
  • Vasoconstriction minimizes absorption.
  • The epinephrine may increase the cardiac output, which, in turn, hastens the hepatic metabolism of the lidocaine.
  • The duration of anesthetic effect may last as long as 24 hours.
  • The lidocaine may be given safely up to 45 mg/kg and even higher in certain conditions.
