Tumescent Anesthesia: A Brief History Regarding the Evolution of Tumescent Solution.

J Drugs Dermatol 2021 Dec;20(12):1283-1287

Tumescent anesthesia, initially developed as a safer and more effective alternative to general anesthesia in performing liposuction, is used extensively today for a wide array of surgical procedures performed by various specialties. The make-up of the tumescent solution is variable, and it has evolved significantly over the past 40+ years. Even prior to Jefferey Klein’s tumescent solution recorded in his article from 1987, “The Tumescent Technique for Lipo-Suction Surgery,” there were significant contributions paving the way to modern formulations.

Efficacy and Safety of Tranexamic Acid for the Control of Surgical Bleeding in Patients Under Liposuction.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2022 02 5;46(1):258-264. Epub 2021 Aug 5.

Universidad Juárez del Estado de Durango, Calle Paloma No.806, Colonia Fátima, 34060, Durango, Durango, México.

Liposuction remains one of the most frequently performed cosmetic surgical procedures and its popularity is increasing every year. However, since its inception, justified concerns regarding patient safety have placed limits on the volume of fat that can be aspirated, influenced by hemodynamic fluctuations and blood loss during liposuction. Tranexamic acid (TXA) is an antifibrinolytic agent that competitively inhibits the conversion of plasminogen to plasmin, thus preventing the binding and degradation of fibrin. Read More

Constant Rate Infusion of Lidocaine, Tumescent Anesthesia and Their Combination in Dogs Undergoing Unilateral Mastectomy.

Animals (Basel) 2021 Apr 29;11(5). Epub 2021 Apr 29.

Department of Veterinary Sciences, University of Messina, 98168 Messina, Italy.

Tumescent anesthesia (TUM) is a technique that was initially used to perform liposuction under local anesthesia, which consists of the injection of such large volumes of local anesthetic until to produce swelling and firmness (tumescence) of the surgical area. The aim of this study was to compare the intraoperative analgesic efficacy of lidocaine (LID) constant rate infusion (CRI), of TUM, or their combination (LID/TUM) and the postoperative pain and analgesic requirement in dogs undergoing unilateral mastectomy. Twenty-four dogs were premedicated with dexmedetomidine (3 μg/kg) and methadone (0. Read More

Differentiation potential and mRNA profiles of human dedifferentiated adipose cells and adipose‑derived stem cells from young donors.

Mol Med Rep 2021 01 17;23(1). Epub 2020 Nov 17.

Department of Plastic Surgery, Peking University Third Hospital, Beijing 100191, P.R. China.

Dedifferentiated adipose cells (DAs) and adipose‑derived stem cells (ADSCs) are two of the primary types of stem cells derived from adipose tissue, which have been reported to possess similar characteristics, but also exhibit unique phenotypic and functional advantages. However, several reports have described inconsistent results regarding their differences in multilineage differentiation function. Moreover, to the best of our knowledge, there are no studies assessing their myogenic ability, or the differences in the transcriptome between the two cell types derived from lipoaspirates via tumescent liposuction from the same donors.

Tam T Nguyen

FP Essent 2020 Oct;497:23-26

Washington Township Medical Foundation, 2500 Mowry Ave #255, Fremont, CA 94538.

Liposuction and nonsurgical fat reduction modalities (ie, body contouring) are among the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures in the United States. Liposuction is an invasive surgical procedure in which adipose tissue is dislodged and suction is used to remove it. The procedure originally was performed with a regional nerve block or general anesthesia; a tumescent technique for local anesthesia now is used. Read More

Department of Dermatology and Allergology, Städtisches Klinikum Dresden, Academic Teaching Hospital of the Technical University, Dresden, Germany.

Lipedema is a painful, underdiagnosed adipose tissue disorder, characterized by symmetrical swelling of the extremities due to subcutaneous fat deposition in the buttocks, thighs, legs, and arms, sparing the most distal part of the extremities. Although etiology and pathogenesis of lipedema is unclear, possible role of hormonal and genetic factors have been proposed previously. Patients with lipedema suffer from pain, easy bruising, tenderness, and disfigurement. Read More

The Impact of Lidocaine on Adipose-Derived Stem Cells in Human Adipose Tissue Harvested by Liposuction and Used for Lipotransfer.

Int J Mol Sci 2020 Apr 20;21(8). Epub 2020 Apr 20.

Department of Immunology, University Medicine Greifswald, 17489 Greifswald, Germany.

The local anesthetic lidocaine, which has been used extensively during liposuction, has been reported to have cytotoxic effects and therefore would be unsuitable for use in autologous lipotransfer. We evaluated the effect of lidocaine on the distribution, number, and viability of adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs), preadipocytes, mature adipocytes, and leukocytes in the fatty and fluid portion of the lipoaspirate using antibody staining and flow cytometry analyses. Adipose tissue was harvested from 11 female patients who underwent liposuction. Read More
