Why MDs Looking to Expand Their Practice Should Consider Tumescent Liposuction Training

how to prepare patients for liposuction surgery

The market for aesthetic procedures continues to skyrocket and prove remarkably resilient to economic downturns. The spike in demand for medical aesthetics has been so significant as to capture the attention of Fortune Magazine, leaving little doubt about the growth opportunity represented by this increasingly popular subspecialty. And with this recognition, many MDs are pursuing training in tumescent liposuction to expand their practice and increase their ROI. 

Of course, whether the investment in tumescent liposuction training is a smart career investment has a lot to do with the quality of instruction and the reputation of the professional body behind it. At AAAMS, we are among the world’s leading, fully accredited platforms for aesthetic training in tumescent liposuction as well as a wealth of other aesthetic procedures.

For more than fifteen years, we’ve delivered top-level hybrid training for MDs that combines virtual instruction with hands-on experience.

Why Choose Tumescent Liposuction Training Above Other Liposuction Methods?

The tumescent approach brings many benefits hard-matched by both traditional and newer forms of suction-assisted fat removal. These benefits include an enhanced safety profile and superior cosmetic outcomes. Let’s take a closer look at each.

The Enhanced Safety Profile of Tumescent Liposuction

Uncontrolled bleeding and the use of general anesthesia typically represent the two top risks in any surgical procedure. Tumescent liposuction dramatically reduces these risks. How? The saline solution used in tumescent liposuction contains epinephrine, a potent vasoconstrictor that reduces bleeding. And unlike other forms of liposuction, tumescent liposuction can be performed with only local anesthesia. 

Using local instead of general anesthesia can bring additional benefits for patients that include reduced risks of: 

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Muscle aches
  • Hypothermia
  • Sore throat
  • Headaches
  • Constipation

The Superior Cosmetic Outcome of Tumescent Liposuction 

Cosmetic risks of any form of liposuction lie primarily in skin and contour irregularities such as waviness, dimpling, and asymmetries. Tumescent liposuction offers better protection from these risks by introducing a saline solution into subcutaneous fat tissue, causing it to swell. This has the effect of “magnifying” the fat, making it easier for surgeons to be more precise and achieve smoother, more symmetrical results. The enhanced visibility afforded by this method also makes it less likely that the surgeon will bring the liposuction cannula too close to the skin. (The closer the cannula comes to the skin, the more likely contour irregularities will occur.)  

What You Can Expect From Your Tumescent Liposuction Training Course 

The Tumescent liposuction training course is a 3-day hybrid course that begins with a didactic session covering training videos, case studies, observation, and hands-on training led by experts. Following this, we’ll head to Beverly Hills for extensive hands-on  training that will include topics like: 

  • Surgical techniques 
  • Tumescent liposculpting by area 
  • Hands-on training on one localized area

With the skyrocketing demand for aesthetic procedures, pursuing tumescent liposuction training can be a significant yet highly accessible way to expand your practice and increase your ROI. And with access to the AAAAMS Aesthetics Network included with all our courses, you’ll be instantly connected to other MDs who are sharing your journey into aesthetic medicine and everything it offers.
