The liposuction session at the 2nd annual meeting of the World Academy of Cosmetic Surgery features as star guest:
Jeffrey Klein, MD
who re-defined liposuction surgery. Dr. Jeffrey Klein is a dermatologic surgeon practicing in San Juan Capistrano and Newport Beach in Orange County, California. In addition to board certification by the American Boards of Dermatology, Internal Medicine, and Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Klein has completed a National Institute of Health Research Fellowship in Clinical Pharmacology, as well as advanced degrees in mathematics and biostatistics. As a result of his unique scientific training, he was able to invent the technique for tumescent local anaesthesia and tumescent liposuction totally by local anaesthesia. Dr. Klein first described the tumescent technique for liposuction at a scientific meeting in 1986 and published his results in the Journal of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery in 1987. Prior to 1986, all liposuction surgeries were done under general anaesthesia, were associated with significant surgical blood loss and prolonged post-operative recovery of two or more weeks. The advent of tumescent liposuction permitted liposuction to be done totally by local anaesthesia with virtually no blood loss. Today tumescent liposuction continues to be the world's safest and most comfortable form of liposuction with the quickest recovery.
