Due to the developments and changes of tumescent solution, infiltration technique, and cannulas, we perform tumescent liposuction today using up to 6-8 l tumescent solution. Total aspirate measures up to 9 l, pure fat aspired up to 5 l. Tumescent liposuction of extended areas can still be done as an outpatient procedure. The condition of patients intra- and postoperatively as well as results has improved and the predictability of outcome is more certain.
