This study aimed at recognizing the ultimate decision to select the type of anesthesia depends on the type and extent of the liposuction surgery planned, the patient’s underlying health condition and the psychological disposition of the patient. The study also describes the four types of liposuction techniques based on the volume of infiltration or wetting solution injected, dry, wet, superwet, and tumescent technique. Besides analyzing the main differences between these techniques and the amount of infiltration done into the tissues and the resultant blood loss as a percentage of aspirated fluid, highlighting that the tumescent technique is the most common of all liposuction techniques. The study found that liposuction is a popular procedure for reducing excessive fat from the body. It is associated with major hemodynamic changes, especially in large-volume liposuction surgery. Anaesthesia for these procedures requires a thorough understanding of the physiological changes and likely complications associated with them.

Keywords: Anaesthesia, liposuction, techniques.
