hen, in the mid-80’s a fairly significant breakthrough occurred when the “tumescent” or “wet” technique was introduced. The tumescent technique involves flushing the area to be treated with copious amounts of fluid, including saline and an anesthetic which numbed the area. The introduction of fluid and anesthetic reduced blood loss and alleviated the need for general anesthesia. Recovery times were shortened as well, further improving the overall liposuction experience.
