  • Liposuction Melbourne – what is tumescent liposuction?


Dr Michael Rich of ENRICH Clinic Armadale has been at the forefront of the tumescent liposuction technique in Australia for over twenty-five years. Considered the gold-standard in liposuction techniques, read on to find out why we favour this method over all else.

Contact ENRICH Clinic to secure a liposuction consult with Dr Michael Rich.

Tumescent liposuction  

Tumescent liposuction can be performed under local rather than general anaesthesia.

The area is numbed via a tiny 1.5mm hole in the skin through which very small tubes called micro-cannulas are inserted. A fluid called tumescent fluid fills the area to be treated. This fluid numbs the treatment area. The fat is then removed via the micro-cannulas.

The use of tumescent fluid has multiple benefits, including smoother results, reduced likelihood of bruising and faster recovery times making it the ideal centrepiece of our Body Contouring program.
