We are constantly seeing well-known celebrity in the news such as Kim Kardashian, Britney Spears and Demi Moore being congratulated on their perfect bodies after having liposuction. The biggest factor, most people need to take into consideration when having Liposuction, is the cost. Having Liposuction in Thailand can reduce this cost by more than 50%. Prices for a liposuction start from $2000 for the first area and then only $700 per area after the first. An example would be Lower Abdomen (1st area) $2000, Hips (2nd Area) $700 Arms (3rd area) $700, Total of $3400 for three areas of Liposuction
Liposuction is a procedure to aid the removal of fat from deposits beneath the skin using a hollow stainless steel tube (called a cannula) with the assistance of a powerful vacuum. Liposuction can be accomplished either with the use of general anaesthesia or with heavy IV sedation, or totally by local anaesthesia
There are now many ways to do liposuction; Liposuction can be achieved painlessly either totally by local anaesthesia or with general anaesthesia. In the realm of liposuction, maximum speed and maximum volume of aspirate are not criteria for excellence. Ultimately, excellence is measured in terms of patient happiness that is a function of safety, patient comfort, finesse, and quality of results. The important distinction between liposuction surgeons who are board certified is the liposuction technique that they use. The surgeon’s specialty is not as important as the surgeon’s technique, experience and attitude toward safety.
Today, a number of new tools and techniques exist such as the tumescent and super-wet techniques help provide selected patients with more precise results and quicker recovery times.
The new Vaser and Cool Liposculpture are third-generation ultrasound devices that help skin contraction and tightening. It is also ideal for patients having a second procedure. It is a Ultrasonic (UAL) liposuction procedure, meaning it uses ultrasonic energy as a means of fat removal. The ultrasound technology breaks up and emulsifies the fat that is then removed. Unlike other fat removal methods, it leaves the surrounding nerves, blood vessels, and tissue virtually unharmed.
What won’t Liposuction do?
Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity and is not a replacement for regular exercise and healthy eating habits. It is also not an effective treatment for cellulite, the dimpled skin that typically appears on the thighs, hips and buttocks.
If you are bothered by excess fat deposits – located anywhere on your body – that don’t respond to diet or exercise, liposuction may be right for you
Who is the Ideal candidates for liposuction?
- Adults within 30% of their ideal weight who have firm, elastic skin and good muscle tone
- Healthy individuals who do not have a life-threatening illness or medical conditions that can impair healing
- Individuals with a positive outlook and specific goals in mind for body contouring
The success and safety of liposuction depends very much on your complete honesty on your booking form and candidness during your consultation in Phuket before surgery.
