LIPOSUCTION

 

Summary


The liposuction procedure is a cosmetic procedure that is used to remove excess fat from the body. It is done using a special tool that suctions the fat from target areas of the body. Often referred to as body contouring, the procedure is designed to improve the appearance and smooth an irregular or distorted shape.

Commonly liposuctioned body parts:

  • Abdomen
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Chin
  • Upper arms

Length of the procedure: 1 hour

Hospital Stay: Most patents are released form care within 1 day their procedure.

Recovery before traveling home: Patients seeking liposuction through medical tourism can return home within 4 to 7 days of their procedure.

Travel Tip: It is best to plan an extended stay after you have liposuction to allow for post operative care. Most surgeons require a follow-up visit in the days immediately following the procedure. Find a hotel near the clinic where you have the surgery for easy access to medical care. It is best to find a hotel room that is handicap accessible so you can recover with ease.

Procedure Details

Your surgery will begin with the administration of general anesthesia or IV sedation. The surgeon will make a tiny incision to insert the suction device. They will use the incision to infuse you will a sterile liquid that reduces bleeding and trauma before they suction any fat.

Using a back and forth motion the surgeon will use the suction device to loosen the fat. Then, they will suction the fat that is dislodged. Once the fat is removed from the desired areas the surgeon may insert small drainage tubes to remove excess fluid during post operative recovery.

After the Procedure

After the procedure you will be taken to recovery. Your vitals will be monitored carefully during this time. When your vitals are stable you will be moved to a regular hospital room or released from care.

After the surgery the treated area will be wrapped or you will be required to wear a compression support garment. This will help reduce the amount of bleeding, bruising and swelling that takes place. You may also have surgical drains in place to remove excess fluid. Your drains will be removed within 2 to 3 days of your procedure.

Self care after liposuction:

  • No driving for 1 week
  • Resume light activity within 24 to 48 hours
  • Avoid strenuous activity and heavy lifting for 4 weeks
  • Wear compression garment for 3 weeks
