Liposuction History

Liposuction can trace its origins back to 1974 when two Italian doctors Arpad and Giorgio Fischer first developed the blunt tunnelling technique from which modern liposuction has evolved. Liposuction gained popularity in 1978 when French physicians Illouz and Fournier further modified the technique to reduce sedation and morbidity risks. By the early 1980’s, although liposuction had become extremely popular, it was marred by negative perceptions due to excessive bleeding and sometimes unsightly skin aberrations.

The invention of the Tumescent technique of liposuction in 1985 by Dr. Jeffrey Klein revolutionised the industry. For the first time, with the use of smaller cannulae and local anaesthetic, the risks of excessive bleeding and skin inconsistencies were dramatically reduced. For the first time, doctors were able to reassure their patients, that the uncertainties associated with conventional methods of liposuction, were minimal. Tumescent liposuction was a game-changer for the entire industry.

Liposuction safety

Liposuction is a medical procedure and as with all medical procedures it comes with risks and possible complications. It is vital that a person going in for liposuction is fully aware of all the possible outcomes and risks. The doctor must comprehensively brief the patient on all the steps involved in the procedure, possible complications that could arise and manage their expectations from the outset. Dr. Gupta is of the firm belief that the health and safety of the patient is paramount. He has therefore dedicated this page to providing as much information as possible about the risks, complications and side effects of undergoing liposuction surgery.

Tumescent liposuction is a technique propounded by Dr. Jeffrey Klein ( that involves injecting large volumes of dilute local anaesthetic to the areas being treated. This causes firmness or a type of swelling in the area also known as Tumescence (hence the name). Dr. Gupta is one of the few doctors in the UK who has been trained personally by Dr. Klein in mastering this technique. One of the benefits of this technique is the elimination of the need for pain medication after the procedure as the effect of the local anaesthetic lasts for many hours.
