Liposuction Thailand

Reshape your body with Liposuction. Thailand surgeons are waiting to serve you!

Contrary to popular belief, liposuction is not intended for weight loss.  Liposuction is meant to reshape the body.  Most individuals want an area or a combination of areas of their body reshaped.  Some individuals want their legs reshaped while other individuals may want their breast reshaped.  Some individuals may want their lips reshaped while others may want their buttocks reshaped.

To achieve a desired shape, an individual may undergo Liposuction.  Thailand surgeons are skilled at performing liposuctions and various cosmetic procedures.
Liposuction, or lipoplasty, uses a vacuum suction cannula to remove fat deposits from under the skin.  Sometimes an ultrasonic probe is used to break the fat into small pieces.  The fat is then suctioned out. 

Ideal Candidate
The ideal candidate is healthy and exercises regularly.  The candidate may have bulging or flabby areas which he or she may have tried consistently to remove through exercise but the flabbiness persisted.  The ideal candidate is not obese but instead is no more than twenty pounds over weight.  Candidates with fat in a localized area may experience the best results from liposuction.  Thailand surgeons will help the candidate determine if liposuction is the best choice.

Since liposuction is not intended for weight loss, individuals with large deposits of fat or who are obese are not considered good candidates for liposuction.  For the individual who is obese and is unable to lose weight on his or her own, gastric bypass may be an option.

The Procedure
When performing liposuction, Thailand surgeons mark the area that will be augmented.  Surgeons typically place the patient under a general anesthesia but some surgeons may choose to use a local anesthesia with a sedative.  Other surgeons may use an epidural block or an intravenous sedation.  The anesthetic option selected is dependent on the patient, the surgeon’s preference and the complexity of the surgery.

Before the actual liposuction, Thailand surgeons use a wetting solution in the area to minimize blood loss and ensure safety.  There are various types of wetting solutions including:  the dry technique, the wet technique, the super-wet technique and the tumescent technique.  The difference between each technique is the amount of fluid used.

Next is the actual liposuction. Thailand surgeons may select from one of many techniques to vacuum the fat.  The popular techniques are:
  • Traditional suction-assisted liposuction. A cannula is inserted through a tiny incision and the fat cells are vacuumed. The cannula is moved back and forth to break up the layers of fat; then the fat is suctioned out.
  • Ultrasound-assisted liposuction. Sound waves are used to break up the fat before it is vacuumed.
  • Power-assisted liposuction. A motorized cannula is used to first break up the fat then suctions it out.
  • Laser-assisted liposuction. A laser is used to liquefy the fat before it is removed.
  • Body-jet liposuction. Fat cells are loosen with a water pulsating jet and fat is simultaneously removed.

Recovery Period
The patient can expect to be swollen after a liposuction.  Thailand surgeons may leave the incisions open and insert a drain so that remain fat and fluids can be drained.  The patient may be able to return to normal activity within a few days.  In fact, movement is encouraged to get the blood flowing to minimize the risk of blood clots. An antibiotic may be prescribed as a precaution to ward off infections.

Risk
Risks are possible in all surgeries.  The potential risks for liposuction include infection, adverse reactions to anesthesia, fluid imbalance shock, burns, hematoma, temporary numbness, asymmetry, dimpling, surface irregularities, and perforation wounds in surrounding tissue or organs, death.  There are many advantages of liposuction.  Thailand surgeons work diligently to ensure risks are minimized and benefits are realized.
