Wet Liposuction Technique


The Wet Liposuction Technique also required general anesthesia. The wet liposuction technique required the injection of approximately 100 milliliters of local anesthesia containing epinephrine.

Although the wet liposuction technique caused less blood loss than the dry technique, blood loss with the wet liposuction technique was still excessive and dangerous. Blood composed approximately 15% to 20% of the tissue removed by liposuction using the wet technique.
