Tumescent liposuction: lidocaine dose

Generic Clinical Sciences

Introduction and Controversy

Howard Solbel, in an editor’s response to Yoho’s article (see below), state the following – “Let us first understand the difference between the tumescent technique and the tumescent solution. The tumescent technique involves using the tumescent solution (lidocaine 0.05%, epinephrine 1:1,000,000) anywhere from 1:1 up to 2:1 tumescent solution to aspirate, with less than 55 mg/kg of lidocaine injected. Most important, the procedure as described by Dr. Jeffrey Klein is performed strictly under local anesthesia, without general anesthesia or I.V. sedation.”
