|Overview of Liposuction|
In our practice, we require a routine pre-operative health check-up a day before the liposuction procedure to exclude serious underlying medical illness that may cause some complications during or after liposuction. We recommend our liposuction patients to bring a tight garment used to enhance a better shape after the procedure. The garment should be a little tight which would become loose after using for few days following the procedure. The patient should wear the garment at least 6 weeks after the operation
Liposuction is done under general anesthetics in our affiliated hospitals in Phuket, not at the clinic. It is not used as a substitute for weight reduction. You will be expected to stay in the hospital’s private room for at least l - 2 days. Full payments of the liposuction package must be paid before the operation.
Your cosmetic surgeon will assess your overall weight, skin quality and muscles tone, the pattern of distribution and quality of fat and discuss the risks and limitations. You need to be frank with your expectations. A straightforward communication between the cosmetic surgeon and the patient will avoid most of the problems regarding the outcome.
Get Educated in Liposuction
The Procedure: Liposuction is a procedure to remove unwanted fat from specific areas including the abdomen, hips, or love handles, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks and neck by using a tube (cannula) and suction.
A good candidate for liposuction is a patient who has normal weight with firm, elastic skin who has pockets of excess fat in certain areas. Liposuction offers varying degrees of success in different problem areas. Liposuction works well on fat deposits on the hips (love handles) and upper thighs (known as saddle bags), waist and inner knees. The outcomes vary which mainly depends on the characteristic of the excess fat removed and skin elasticity. Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity.
Get Ready For The Big Day (Before, During & After)
24 hours after Operation: Early ambulation is encouraged to prevent complications.
On Discharge Day: You will be given a written instruction on when to take your antibiotics, anti-inflammatory and analgesic pills and you’ll be advised about the date of your follow-up visit. The wound will be dressed and covered with waterproof plasters. You will be asked to avoid swimming, use a wet towel to clean your body and only light exercise. You should keep on using the garment for at least 6 weeks to maintain and achieve the desired body shape.
7 days After: Your follow-up visit. You are expected to stay in Phuket for at least 7 days to recuperate well.
1 - 2 weeks After: The pain on the first 1-2 weeks varies but mostly can be controlled by the given medications. Massage of the treated areas should be considered for best results.
The Liposuction Package
Full payment of the operating expenses must be paid in full before the operation. This package is applicable for elective, uncomplicated patients only.
The Long Term Result of Liposuction
You will see a noticeable difference in the shape of your body quite soon after liposuction. However, improvement will become even more apparent after about four to six weeks, when most of the swelling has subsided. After about three months, any persistent mild swelling usually disappears and the final contour will be visible.
When your expectations are realistic, you will probably be very pleased with the results of your surgery. You may find that you are more comfortable in a wide variety of clothes and more at ease with your body. By eating a healthy diet and getting regular exercise, you can help to maintain your new shape.
Like any surgical procedure, liposuction is also associated with certain number of risks and complications despite maximum care. Our Team takes every precaution possible to prevent and minimize the risks of surgery. However, much of the responsibility for risk avoidance rests with you as well.
