What is a Liposuction?

Liposuction is a fat removing procedure. It is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures performed in the world. Liposuction is often referred to simply as lipo or lipo procedure. Liposuction surgery can help change your body shape, make stomach flatter and your silhouette slimmer and more proportional in general.

Liposuction can be performed on different areas of the body. The most popular choices include:

  • Neck, under chin, and cheeks
  • Abdomen and waist
  • Hips and thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Upper arms
  • Knees and ankles

Sometimes liposuction is combined with other plastic surgery procedures: abdominoplasty, facelift, breast reduction.

Am I a candidate for a Liposuction?

You are if it is completely your own decision. Lipo procedure is a surgery. As any surgery, it can lead to life-threatening complications. You should do it only if it is you and not someone else who wants to see your body reshaped.

You are a liposuction candidate if you:

  • Are in good health and do not suffer from coagulation disorders, diabetes, or multi-system diseases
  • Have average or slightly above average weight
  • Have well-toned and elastic skin
  • Have localized areas of excessive fat that do not respond to exercise or diet
  • Do not smoke
  • Are realistic about the results

It is important to understand that liposuction does not solve obesity problem.

It does not substitute exercise or diet if you want to lose weight.

It does not help to get rid of sagging and loose skin.

It is no good in combatting cellulitis.

How is a Liposuction performed?

The lipo is generally performed in two steps: Anaesthesia and Surgery.

Anaesthesia
Anaesthesia is necessary for liposuction procedure of any kind. Depending on the area and technique, lipo can be performed under general, regional or local anaesthesia.

Surgery
Incisions in the areas from where excessive fat will be removed are made. Incisions for liposuction are very small and inconspicuous.

Through these incisions cannula, a thin hollow tube, is inserted. It is used to loosen the fat and suck it out.

Controlled up and down vibrating movements of the cannula help dislodge fat. When the excess fat is loosened enough, it is sucked out under negative pressure that is created either by a surgical aspirator or a syringe.

In media, lipo surgery takes between two and three hours though it may be necessary to remain in surgical facility up to 7 hours. The time you will spend in hospital or clinic depends on the number of treated areas, the amount of excess fat for removal, the type of anaesthesia.

What are the risks of Liposuction?

As any surgery, liposuction entails certain risks. Before making your final decision on undergoing liposuction procedure, you have to evaluate all possible liposuction complications and negative effects.

The bigger the area of liposuction, the higher are eventual risks, though side effects are possible regardless the scale of the surgery.

Some of the major risks of lipo include:

  • Infection and embolism – Both of these complications are rare yet possible. To prevent infection, antibiotics are used.
  • Bruising and/or swelling – Both bruising and swelling are temporary and will eventually vanish after full recovery but they can persist for weeks or even months after the procedure.
  • Skin numbness – Similarly to bruising and swelling, skin normally gets sensation back several months after the procedure.
  • Post-liposuction redistribution of fat and weight gain. Often, post-liposuction fat accumulates in the abdominal area. It can also lead to asymmetries and irregular body contours.
  • Fluid accumulation – It is easily detected by a surgeon and aspirated with a needle.

What results should I expect after Liposuction?

Whether the results of liposuction are long-lasting or not, depends greatly on your commitment to maintain regular body weight and keep fit. Lipo works best on people with only limited extra weight and good skin elasticity.

To see the results, you will need to wait for swelling to subside. Expect to see an improved contour of your body within a couple of weeks after lipo.

Though fat cells from the treated areas are permanently gone, it is necessary to follow your physician’s instructions to prevent fat from returning to other areas of your body and ensure the result of the lipo remains for long.

What should I expect my Liposuction recovery to last?

You do not need to stay in hospital after lipo surgery – it is performed on outpatient bases. In no side effects, liposuction recovery is usually fairly quick.

To help and facilitate recovery, wear a compression garment or elastic bandages over the treated areas.

You may need temporary drains in case of fluid or blood accumulation, too.

Surgical sire should be properly taken care of – you will be given all the instructions before or after surgery. They may include applying medication over incisions or taking medication orally to speed up the heeling process.

The initial recovery takes only a couple of days and after that you will normally be able to return to work.

In a couple of weeks after surgery lipo recovery is complete – you can resume your normal daily activities and exercise.

Liposuction cost in Thailand varies depending on the hospital or clinic, on the area and number of areas you want to treat.

They can be as high as USD3,500 in the best clinics.
