Can general anesthesia be given right after a tumescent lipo that contains lidocaine?

Is it possible or even safe to have a tumescent liposuction procedure of the flanks right before going under general anesthesia for tummy tuck? I am referring to tumescent formula that will contain lidocaine in it.

Tumescent liposuction is commonly done under general anesthesia.

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.
