Last fact-checked: 19 December 2020

Liposuction in Phuket offers hope for those plagued by excess fat on their body that won’t budge after diet and exercise. Although not an answer to obesity, this common technique of removing fat can help those with leftover bulges that won’t shift after weight loss. 

Discover how you can save thousands by booking with Medical at Departures—with the chance to enjoy a pre-surgery holiday on Thailand’s largest and most popular island.

Why Liposuction?

If you have a sedentary lifestyle and sugar-rich diet, it will only be a matter of time before fat starts to accumulate all over your body. Most people can slim down considerably through eating healthily and hitting the gym, but pockets of stubborn fat often remain. 

The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery has declared liposuction as one of the most extensively carried out surgical procedures. While techniques of fat removal can vary, it usually conducted on arms, chest, abdomen, hips and thighs and equally popular among men and women. 

Many celebrities like the famous Kim Kardashian have also undergone liposuction to stay in shape.

How Does Liposuction Work?

An experienced surgeon will first evaluate your health condition. If you are deemed suitable and ready for the treatment, you’ll go through a consultation with the surgeon to decide which areas of your body need liposuction. During the treatment, your fat cells are liquefied and sucked out of your body using specially designed tubes called cannulas.

It is important to note that you must abstain from anticoagulants and smoking for at least a month before surgery.

How Long Does Liposuction Take and What Is the Recovery Time?

The procedure is generally carried out in a few hours, although this depends on how much fat is targeted. An overnight hospital stay is recommended after liposuction in order to monitor any adverse post-surgical symptoms. Around one week after your treatment, you should be able to start work and carry on with your normal routine. 

You will be required to wear pressure garments to keep the treated areas under pressure as this helps in getting the desired results during the recovery phase. Complete recovery requires five to six months.
