Liposuction in Puerto Vallarta

The Ultimate Guide to Liposuction in Puerto Vallarta

Thought about being a medical traveler? Give it a go with Liposuction in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - a relatively simple introduction to cosmetic surgery.

Most of us are plagued with stubborn pockets of fat that we can’t shift - and liposuction is an easy way to get rid of it. Using this method a thin tube called a cannula is inserted into the body and the fat vacuumed away. Now there are many other methods of liposuction, both surgical and non surgical using modern technologies and one of them may just be right for you.

Stubborn fat areas in the abdomen, butt, thighs, breasts, arms and back yield to liposuction. Smaller areas including the chin and neck also have good results with liposuction. There are various techniques which use either water, ultrasound or laser to dilute the fat into a liquid, which can then be sucked out with a thin tube.

Why consider liposuction in Puerto Vallarta?

Puerto Vallarta is a great place for a holiday. It also offers cosmetic procedures at very affordable rates since it is a medical tourism hub. You can combine a holiday in Mexico with some cosmetic surgery. Puerto Vallarta is easily accessible from most places in Canada and the U.S. via short flights and you can actually even drive down from certain regions.

As the cost of living here is low, medical procedures are available at reasonable rates. It also has a large population of expats and retirees thanks to its moderate climate and relaxed lifestyle. At the same time it offers all kinds of facilities to visitors including good quality medical care. You can enjoy a holiday in PV and also get some cosmetic procedures done.

Why can’t you simply book on your own?

It can be risky to book on your own for any cosmetic surgery. If you check out the stories on the web, you will realize that it is not worth it as you have no means of checking up on the quality of care and other services when you book on your own. You cannot verify the kind of clinic and the antecedents of the doctors and other staff.

Booking through Medical Departures is safe because we carry out an investigation on the training, qualifications and credentials of the doctors at the hospitals and clinics, providing details on our clinic listings alongside other useful information, such as professional memberships and real patient reviews.

How long does liposuction take and what is the downtime involved?

Liposuction will take between an hour and three hours and the time taken will depend on the kind of liposuction you have and the areas to be treated. It may be done under sedation, local anesthesia or general anesthesia. In most cases you will be able to go back to your place of stay shortly after, even after invasive liposuction.

You will need to wear bandages for at least two weeks along with compression garments, which you will wear for much longer. Stitches, if used, will take around five days to be removed. If you can take a week off from work it would be better, though for minor procedures that don’t need stitches you can resume work after a few days. It can take several weeks or months for the bruising to resolve and the results to be apparent.

What is the cost of liposuction?

In the U.S. and Canada the cost of liposuction can range from US$ 6,000 to US$ 12,000. In Puerto Vallarta you pay a fraction of the price starting at US$ 2,000, which makes it eminently affordable.
