Find out more about traveling to this Mexican border city for treatment with Medical Departures.

What Is Liposuction - Is it for Me?

Used to remove small bulges of fat, liposuction is a popular option for toning areas of the body unaffected by diet and exercise; as an elective procedure in the US, patients can make substantial savings by heading Mexicali for treatment.

Liposuction is most commonly performed on the abdomen, hips, buttocks, and thighs, but can also be performed on the face. In considering whether you are a good candidate for liposuction, it is important to maintain realistic expectations regarding results.

As a potential candidate for liposuction, it important to note that:

  • The ideal candidate for liposuction should be of average weight and be in good overall health.
  • This procedure is appropriate for both men and women.
  • It's important for you to have firm, elastic skin.
  • While age is not usually a consideration in determining whether you are a good candidate for this procedure, older individuals may have less elasticity in their skin, which means they may not achieve the same results as would a younger individual.

It should also be kept in mind that liposuction is not a substitute for diet and exercise, which means it will not prevent you from gaining weight. In order to maintain your new look, you will need to commit to a healthy eating and exercise plan. Liposuction may also be performed alongside other procedures, such as a tummy tuck or facelift.

Why Should I Consider Liposuction in Mexicali?

Patients considering liposuction will find that various destinations throughout Mexico, including Mexicali, offer first-class facilities, affordable prices and luxurious accommodation options for post-surgery recovery (before you head home). Since Mexicali can be so easily reached by either driving or flying from the United States and Canada, more and more people are now taking advantage of the opportunity to combine their procedure with a getaway.

The Benefits of Booking with Medical Departures

In choosing a clinic in which to have your procedure performed, it is important to take the time to conduct due diligence. This is where Medical Departures help. Committed to your complete safety and satisfaction, we only list facilities and physicians with excellent reputations. Our quality-check process involves verifying qualifications and professional members, such as with the International Association of Plastic Surgeons. We also perform criminal and legal background checks, as well as conduct interviews with real patients. Finally, we visit the clinics in person so we can attest first-hand to how things are done.

Get started now by browsing through these leading clinics and hospitals in Mexicali for liposuction:

How Long Does Liposuction Take and What Should You Expect in Terms of Recovery?

Based on the type of liposuction required, the procedure may be performed in a doctor's office, surgical clinics or even hospital. Regardless of where you undergo treatment, you can usually return to your hotel the same day. You may, however, need to stay overnight if large amounts of fat are to be removed.

The procedure is commonly performed under local anesthesia, but may also be performed under general anesthesia. After an initial consultation and planning session, your surgeon will begin the procedure by making small incisions in the target area and then insert a suction device inside the incision to remove excess fat. The amount of time required for the procedure will vary based on the amount of fat to be removed.

Types of Liposuction Procedures:

The two most common liposuction techniques are:

  • Tumescent liposuction, where a solution will be injected into the fatty areas prior to removal to make it easier for the fat to be removed. This technique can also help to ease pain following the procedure.
  • Ultrasound-guided procedure, where fat is liquefied using ultrasonic energy prior to removal from the body.

Most patients recover from liposuction fairly quickly and can return to work within just a few days following the procedure. You should be able to return to normal activities within two weeks of having liposuction performed. Bruising, soreness, and swelling may last for a few weeks following the procedure. You may be advised to wear a compression garment for up to two months following liposuction to help in controlling swelling.

What Is the Cost of Liposuction in Mexicali Compared to the U.S. and Canada?

The average cost of liposuction in Mexicali is $2,500 (EUR €2,241, AUD $3,496, GBP £1,733). This can be compared to $6,000 (EUR €5,379, AUD $8,391, GBP £4,159) in the United States.
