Dr. Amron’s Technique
All of Dr. Amron’s surgeries are performed in a fully licensed and fully accredited surgical center. Dr. Amron strongly prefers the approach of purely tumescent local anesthesia as opposed to general anesthesia and this is especially true for lipoedema patients as it is lymphatic tissue sparing. While most patients feel very little discomfort throughout the entire procedure, preoperative mild sedatives help reduce nervousness. The option of conscious sedation with an anesthesiologist exists but is rarely necessary. Most surgeries are between 1-3 hours depending on the surface area. The majority of patient areas can be done usually in one surgery. Sometimes a second surgery is necessary to target other areas and rarely a third surgery is needed if there are extensive areas involving the entire legs, arms, and torso. Time between surgeries is usually 2-7 days depending on the patient.
