DM of the week

How many areas can you remove in one session?

Well, the number of areas is limited by two factors. The amount of volume we take out, so we can only take out five liters in one session. If we need more than that, we need to do a second session. And the other limiting factor is the amount of local anesthetic that we can give you. The amount of local anesthetic or Tumescent anesthesia that we use to numb the areas is capped at a certain limit because your liver can't break down more than that. So if we reach that limit, we also move to a second session.
