Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery procedure where an area of fat is removed from a patient’s body. It can be carried out on almost any fat deposit site in order to give the patient their desired contours.
Liposuction is also known as fat modelling or lipoplasty and it is a technique that has been constantly refined over the last 20 years. It uses an aspirator (suction device) and a cannula (hollow tube) to remove fat. Liposuction is not a weight loss surgery but a body reshaping technique and as such, cannot remove excessive amounts of fat.
To be a good candidate for liposuction you need to understand what it can and can’t do for you. It is also important to know that even though liposuction can help define your body shape better, it won’t remove large amounts of weight off your body. You must be an emotionally well-adjusted individual who has a healthy lifestyle. Liposuction should not be significantly risky for you.
Liposuction can get very expensive in the US and that is why many medical tourists are choosing to combine their surgical treatments with holiday packages by coming to Mexico. The cost of liposuction in Mexico is almost half of what you would pay in America and often includes all the extra fees. Some clinics can even help to organise your transport and accommodation.
Liposuction Body Area Procedures
Today, patients can travel to Mexico for a small amount of liposuction on their face or a large amount of liposuction on their abdomen and everything in between. Liposuction is a procedure that can be carried out on almost any fat deposit on the body and that is why it is good for removing stubborn fat that has been resistant to healthy eating and exercise.
A huge variety of liposuction techniques have been developed over the years. These are categorized according to the amount of fluid injected and the liposuction mechanism. In the early stages, dry liposuction was used to remove fat but this has been replaced with wet liposuction and laser liposuction techniques. The liposuction instruments have also evolved.
Like all surgical procedures, liposuction is not without its risks and side effects. The complications can occur during the procedure itself or afterwards while the patient is recovering. They range from mild to severe and can be medical or aesthetic. It is necessary for a patient to be fully aware of all the risks and side effects before they undergo liposuction.
So that your liposuction recovery goes smoothly and you experience minimum discomfort, you must follow the surgeon’s pre and post-operative instructions very carefully. The recovery period is a time when many complications can arise so you need to aware of them. It will take you about 5-7 days to recover and then a couple of weeks to resume your regular life. Complete recovery requires 2-3 months.
