Facial Liposuction in Thailand

The Ultimate Guide to Facial Liposuction in Thailand

Remove unwanted fat in the lower part of your face with facial liposuction in Thailand. Create definition and shape while getting rid of jowls, turkey or wattle neck and double chins – those stubborn areas that no amount of exercise will help.

This is a quick and easy way of giving yourself a younger look without undergoing a full facelift. Many people find that dealing with these problem areas are all they need. However, you must have a good degree of elasticity in your skin for it to tighten up once the fat is removed. If not, you may need other treatments to remove the loose skin.

Providing you do a little research and choose a reliable doctor there is no reason why you won’t be overjoyed by the results of your treatment.

At Medical Departures we do quality checks on all our clinics – if we’re not happy with any aspect of their services then we simply don’t list them. We use a number of processes to establish reliability, including clinic visits, verification of qualifications and professional memberships, as well as online testimonials. We also check legal and criminal records. Traveling overseas for any procedure is daunting enough, so at least ensure you have confidence in your clinician.

Thailand is, of course, a popular holiday spot, ad it goes without saying there are plenty of locations around the country to enjoy a pre or post-treatment getaway. With the prices around 50% cheaper in Thailand than at home you’ll save more than enough for a holiday.

What is the procedure for facial liposuction and how long does it take?

Most facial liposuction treatments take around an hour. The procedure is fairly straight forward. After giving you an anesthetic, the surgeon will set to work. Small incisions are made in inconspicuous areas – either under the shin, in the angle of the jaw bone, or sometimes inside the bottom lip. A thin tube (cannula) is inserted and a liquid pumped in to liquefy the fat. Sometimes ultrasound is used for this. The liquefied fat is then sucked out (usually using the same tube) and the wounds stitched closed.

What is the recovery time for facial liposuction?

Pain killers will be given to easy the mild pain, and you will have some bruising and swelling. Usually after a day or two you will feel much better, although the bruising and swelling will last for around 2 weeks. You may be able to disguise it with a scarf or high-necked clothing, and some men grow a beard until the bruising has gone. Swelling will be reduced if you sleep in an elevated position. You will need to refrain from doing vigorous exercise or other strenuous activity for 4 – 5 weeks. The scars fade gradually from pink to white and will be hardly noticeable after a year.
