Insufficient Liposuction with General Anesthesia
Liposuction of the hips the patient lying on his back does not allow sufficient access to the fat on the back, and the area is often insufficiently treated. This situation arises most often when general anesthesia is used the patient positioned lying on the back. Rolling a liposuction patient onto his side can be done but it is risky. When doing liposuction totally by local anesthesia the problem of changing the patient’s position does not exist. One merely asks the patient to roll over on his/her side.
After liposuction there is some drainage of blood-tinged solution of local anesthetic fluid. Which in turn reduces post-operative swelling, and bruising. After liposuction patients wear absorptive pads to accommodate the drainage. With open drainage there is no need to wear an elastic compression garment for a prolonged time.
Post-liposuction compression of the male flanks is usually accomplished with the use of elastic garment.
