Since the introduction of Tumescent Local Anesthesia by Dermatologist and Pharmacologist J.A. Klein, this method of subcutaneous infiltration of large volumes of diluted anesthetic has been more rapidly adopted by doctors all over the world than any other anesthetic method before. Initially invented for cosmetic liposuction, the unsurpassed safety of the procedure has led to many new indications. Today, the advantages are used by dermatologists, general surgeons and plastic surgeons, gynecologists, phlebologists, and ENT specialists. The book contains a wealth of original work and for the first time gives detailed information, clinical examples and tips & tricks on: Medical issues such as liposuction, extirpation of lipomas, wide excision, dermabrasion, flaps and grafts, split skin grafting, hyperhidrosis, acne inversa, breast surgery, sentinel lymph node biopsy. Cosmetic surgery is also covered: abdominoplasty, medial thigh lift, face lift, laser skin resurfacing, hair restoration surgery. Special emphasis was laid on all aspects of phlebologic surgery in tumescent local anesthesia. All contributions were made by internationally renowned experts in their field, such as dermatoloogy, anesthesiology,plastic surgery, general surgery, phlebology, gynecology. The brief but thorough theoretical introduction covers up-to-date background information on pharmacology and technique and makes this book an ideal companion for all courses on the subject
