Considering a Liposuction procedure? In Phuket, Liposuction costs are low compared to your home country. So why not combine your treatment with a tropical island vacation?

Phuket has some of Thailand’s most popular beaches, mostly situated along the clear blue waters of the western shore. The island is home to many high-end seaside resorts, spas and restaurants. Phuket City, the capital, has old shop houses and busy markets. Patong, the main resort town, has many nightclubs, bars and discos.

Laser Liposuction in Phuket is an ideal match. The medical clinics referred by Medical Departures are highly capable of treating your unwanted fats, and the soothing warm wind from the Andaman Sea can expedite your recovery after the treatment. This is one of the reasons why many foreigners come to Phuket every year for cosmetic makeovers.


Moreover, Liposuction Phuket prices are hard to match. The costs are typically a third of Australia, New Zealand, Europe or the US, and the medical facilities are first-class. For example, the Liposuction Phuket price is around US$2,200 (c. AUD$3,000), compared with AUD$12,600 in Australia, and US$6,000 in USA. A saving of over 60%, with plenty left over for your accommodation and travel.

What is involved in Phuket Hospital Liposuction?

Liposuction, sometimes referred to as "lipo" by patients, slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits and improving your body contours and proportion.

Liposuction removes fat from your body using suction. Small, thin, blunt-tipped tubes (cannula) are inserted through tiny cuts in the skin. Fat is suctioned out through these tubes as the doctor moves the tubes around under the skin to target specific fat deposits.

In recent years, improved techniques have made liposuction safer and easier, including:

Tumescent Liposuction. The doctor uses a local anesthetic to numb the area of your body where the tube will be inserted. Next, a large amount of an anesthetic solution is injected into the fatty tissue before traditional liposuction is done. Tumescent liposuction may not require general anesthesia.

Ultrasound-assisted Liposuction. This technique uses ultrasound to liquefy the fat, which makes it easier to remove. This technique may be particularly helpful in removing fat from the neck, upper abdomen, sides, and back.

Laser-assisted Liposuction. This technique uses low-energy waves to liquefy the fat, which is removed through a small cannula.

Liposuction is usually done as an outpatient procedure in a properly equipped hospital. In general, it does not require an overnight stay. Local anesthesia is administered in some cases. You may be given a sedative to help you relax. If a large area or volume of fat is being treated, general anesthesia or deep sedation may be used.

What To Expect After Treatment

After the procedure, the area of the body that was treated is firmly wrapped to help reduce swelling and bruising. Elastic bandages and tape, support hose, a special girdle, or another type of firm-fitting garment may be used, depending on which part of the body was treated.

Most people are able to get up and move around as soon as the treatment is finished and once the effects of the anesthesia and any sedation have worn off. You can return to your normal activities as soon as you feel comfortable, although this may take several days.

Taking it easy for a week or two on the beach will certainly aid the recovery process, which is why so many people choose to come to Phuket for their treatment.

Providing you go to a reputable hospital, your Laser Liposuction will be just as successful as if you had it done at home. Medical Departures work only with reputable, verified hospitals, performing quality-checks, including virtual tours and real patient reviews. Therefore, you can make an appointment with confidence for your treatment.
