Can general anesthesia be given right after a tumescent lipo that contains lidocaine?
Tumescent technique or a variation called "superwet" is commonly done for liposuction in conjunction with a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty.) Even if the entire procedure is done under general anesthesia, there would still be infusion of a solution with lidocaine for the liposuction area.
