Liposuction Recovery Tips


While liposuction helps improve the shape of your body by ridding it of fat deposits. This procedure is not intended for weight loss.

Typically, liposuction is a procedure of choice for people who wish to eliminate localised fat pockets in stubborn areas. The liposuction procedure can be done on your face, thighs, hips, arms, stomach, buttocks and back. Also, liposuction may be used in getting rid of lipomas (fat tumours) as well as help reduce the breast size for men. This surgical procedure can be performed on multiple areas on the same day.

Below is a look at top recovery tips which can help you have a non-interrupted and speedy healing process after your liposuction.

  1. Attend All Your Scheduled Follow-Ups

Attending all your follow up appointments will allow the doctor to monitor and gauge your healing progress after liposuction. So, make sure to go for your follow up post-op appointments.

  1. Know What to Wear

Wearing the right kind of clothing is very important in ensuring you have a fast recovery process. Clothing that fits too tight will irritate the skin hence slow down your recovery process. Ensure that you are comfy during the healing process. To help patients, many surgeons advocate for comfortable and loose-fitting clothing as you heal.

  1. Eat Healthy Foods

For a speedy and an uninterrupted healing process, having a good diet is very important after liposuction. By maintaining a healthy diet, you are likely to experience less swelling. A good diet means including antioxidants, vitamins and other essential nutrients that can help the body recover its strengths. As concerns a proper diet to help with healing, take note of the following rules:

Reduce your salt intake as it encourages your body to hold water which will worsen swelling. To help with the wound healing and regrowth of muscles and skin, increase your protein intake. Each snack or meal should include good sources of protein.

Reduce your sugar intake as it will suppress the body’s immune system. It will also increase the blood glucose level, and cause mineral imbalance. Above all, eat small quantities of food regularly each day to avoid bloating or nausea.

  1. Hydrate on Low-Calorie, non-carbonated Beverages

During recovery post-op, proper hydration will help prevent dehydration. Typically, the recommended amount of water one should take is 8 glasses of water a day. However, following your liposuction, consider increasing the amount to between 10 to 12 glasses. In place of water, other beverages you may take include flavoured water, tea, skim milk, and diluted fruit juice. Avoid taking Gatorade as it contains high sodium levels.

In additions to watermelon, there are several high water-content vegetable and fruits that you can take. This includes celery, strawberries, zucchini and grapefruit.

  1. Ditch the Bathtub

You might be tempted to take a warm bubble bath, but this isn’t the best time to soak yourself in a bathtub. Soaking yourself in water will reduce the recovery rate and increase your risk of getting an infection. Rather than soak yourself in the bathtub, consider getting a gentle massage.

  1. Keep the Area Clean

Changing bandages regularly helps keep the liposuction area clean hence preventing infections from developing. Although you might feel tempted to clean the area with water or other products, avoid doing so over the first few weeks.

  1. Keep Moving

To start, you should have plenty of rest during the first 24hours after your lipo procedure. After that, you may indulge in light exercises like taking short walks which will accelerate the healing process. Remember that you should avoid intensive exercises during the initial few weeks following your liposuction. Additionally, your plastic surgeon will issue you with very precise instructions of what you can do and what you cannot do as concerns physical activities.

  1. Lymphatic Massage

A lymphatic drainage massage focuses on getting rid of accumulated toxins from your lymph nodes. This kind of massage has shown to reduce the recovery time and even minimise pain and discomfort experienced by patients. It is recommended that you do this massage weekly as it will boost your immunity and lower your risk of getting an infection.

  1. Use Sunscreen

Since newly formed scar tissues have no pigmentation, you must avoid exposing them to the sun for at least a year post-surgery. Exposure of scars to the sun may result in permanent discolouration. Use a stick sunscreen to enjoy the most protection. As an alternative, an SPF 15 sunscreen lotion, Parsol 1789 and broad-spectrum protection are also acceptable. However, make sure that you consult with your doctor for specific sunscreen recommendations.

  1. Follow Your Surgeon’s Instructions

To help you in your healing and recovery process, your physician will give you post-care instructions which you should stick to. You will be provided with a compression garment. Although this piece of clothing is not as comfortable, it helps improve post-surgical results. Be sure to wear this garment as long as it is needed. All medication provided should be taken according to your physician’s instructions. Above all, contact your surgeon if you have specific questions relating to your recovery process for clarification.

 



While some surgeries are done for reconstructive or medical reasons, many aim to enhance a patient’s aesthetic appearance. This includes several procedures like facelifts, liposuction, brow lift, mammoplasty and tummy tuck. Cosmetic surgery helps tighten and enhance the appearance of the skin, remove or add hair, adjust facial features, and much more.

In addition, plastic surgery can be used for medical reasons, for instance for people who’ve had accidents, to repairing scarring from surgery, or in restoring the function of different body parts.

While many procedures are available today, here’s a look at the most common types of plastic surgery:

  1. Tummy Tuck

Commonly referred to as ‘tummy tuck‘, Abdominoplasty is used in improving the shape of our abdomen. This procedure helps remove excess skin, fat and restore separated or weakened abdominal muscles thus improving the profile. Tummy tucks help enhance the appearance of sagging or loose skin, but it will not get rid of stretch marks.

Even then, a tummy tuck does not replace healthy eating for weight loss or exercise routine. While tummy tucks offer permanent results, it is critical that you maintain the proper weight in order to maintain these results.

  1. Breast Augmentation

These are procedures that change the shape or increase the size of the breasts. If the breast size is increased, the procedure is also known as ‘breast implant surgery’. Again, breast augmentation is different from breast reductions or breast lifts, which are in fact different kinds of procedures.

  1. Facelift

Facelift procedures repairs loose, sagging, wrinkled or drooping facial skin. During the procedure, tissues of your face are lifted, the excess skin removed, then skin replaced over the repositioned contours. Also, neck lifts are done alongside facelifts.

Other facial procedures commonly done in conjunction with facelifts include eyelid surgery, nose reshaping, or forehead lifts.

  1. Dermabrasion

In our dermatology treatments, a specialized tool is used to gently ‘sand down’ the top skin layer. Once your top skin layer has been removed, this area heals with new skin replacing the old giving you smoother-looking skin.

Usually, dermabrasion is used for:

  • Age Spots
  • Acne scars
  • Sun-damaged skin 
  • Crow’s feet
  • Wrinkles
  • Lesions or growths on the skin
  1. Rhinoplasty

Any surgery that reshapes or repairs the nose is known as Rhinoplasty. While some people choose rhinoplasty for cosmetic purposes, others use it for medical reasons like correcting birth defects or difficulty breathing.

Rhinoplasty may be used to:

  • Correct birth defects
  • Reduce or increase the size of your nose
  • Correct problems from an injury
  • Improve or relieve breathing problems
  • Change the nose bridge shape
  • Narrowing the shape of your nostrils
  • Changing the angle of your nose
  1. Hair transplantation

Also referred to as hair restoration, hair transplantation surgery is aimed at improving the appearance of baldness. During this procedure, a bald area receives hair from areas of thick hair growth.

In one session, over a thousand hairs can be moved. However, some people might require several sessions. Hairs that are transplanted are permanent, meaning no long-term care is needed. Most hair transplants will lead to successful hair growth following the procedure.

  1. Lip augmentation

In order to have fuller-looking lips, lip augmentation may be performed. Normally, to help increase lip shape, volume or structure injectable dermal fillers can be used. This procedure is not permanent and its effects often last for about 6-months before necessitating a second procedure to restore volume and shape.

  1. Liposuction

This cosmetic procedure improves body shape by getting rid of fat deposits. Liposuction is not meant for weight loss.

Usually, localised fat deposits under the skin are removed using a pen-shaped instrument, a vacuum-suction cannula. Also, ultrasound may be used for breaking up fat deposits before it’s removed with suction.

This procedure is performed on your thighs, arms, stomach, face, hips, back and buttocks. Additionally, liposuction can get rid of fat tumours (lipomas) and even reduce the breast size in men. The procedure may be done on multiple areas in one day.

Considering Cosmetic Plastic Surgery

When you are content with how you look, you often are more confident in yourself and feel happier. But before opting for any cosmetic surgery, be sure to work with authorised surgeons and dermatologists, such as the team at Lotus Medical, who prioritise your health and goals as they help you attain your ideal look.

For those who want to change their appearance and attain their beauty goals, learning more about the specific surgery is the best way to know what to expect from the procedure.



Cosmetic Surgery is known to be a medical procedure of purely aesthetic benefits, but that is a common misconception. With more than millions of people benefitting from the countless advantages of cosmetic surgery in Thailand, the public’s understanding is getting better with each successful procedure and each patient’s success story.

 

What is cosmetic surgery?

It is an umbrella term for medical operation or procedure which focuses on enhancing the patient’s physical appearance, from the face to the entire body. With its rising popularity, cosmetic surgery has evolved into an entire branch of science which deals with both invasive or non-invasive procedures all aimed to enhance the physical appearance of the patient.

 

The five most common cosmetic surgery procedures in Thailand are:

Invasive procedures involve those that require the doctor or the surgeon to make an incision to access certain muscles or tissues in a specific region of the body. A non-invasive procedure, on the other hand, pertains to not having any kind of break in the skin when administering any procedures. With the current advancements in the field of medical technology, minimally invasive procedures are now available, which means other surgeries may be done with only a smaller cut made and lesser pain for the patient to endure.

In Australia, an estimate of about 500,000 cosmetic surgeries are carried out each year and the rate is growing rapidly per year as well. The industry has grown to a billion-dollar business that has simply outrun America’s own statistics when it comes to the number of procedures done per year.

 

The benefits of cosmetic surgery

Patients get more than just the aesthetic benefits of cosmetic surgery in Phuket Thailand, they also maximize the other advantages in the different aspects of their wellbeing. Of course, the main motivation of most patients in deciding to go under the knife is usually to look better. However, successful cosmetic surgeries allow patients not only to look better to feel better and live better as well.

Aside from the primary aesthetic aspect, the benefits of cosmetic surgery include:

  • Improved self-esteem and improved self-confidence.

Imagine battling stubborn fat in the midsection of the body for years and having the option to instantly get leaner through liposuction. Because of the dramatic change in their physical appearance, patients feel empowered and emboldened by their new look, which translates into a more confident person with a more positive outlook in life.

  • Increased physical comfort and ease.

With breast reduction procedures, patients are relieved by the burdensome back problems that come from having large breasts. Patients can move freely and easily as well because their chests aren’t as large as it was before the operation.

  • Improved health and bodily functions.

Especially for nose reshaping or rhinoplasty, patients may experience improvement in their breathing because the procedure not only improves the appearance but it also widens the air passageway for the patient.

  • Increased motivation to sustain a healthy lifestyle.

As patients hear the compliments and the rave reviews of their new physical appearance, most of them are motivated to control their weight and to maintain a healthy, balanced lifestyle. Overweight patients can enjoy physical exercises, such as running, cycling, and swimming, without the extra pounds weighing them down.

 

What to expect after the procedure?

For non-invasive or minimally invasive procedures, such as botox fillers or lip injections, the patient is allowed to go home right after and they are to be cautious about the injection site feeling painful to touch or the affected area to develop redness and swelling within the first 48 hours.

For invasive surgeries, on the other hand, patients are to stay inside the hospital postoperative for continuous monitoring of the surgery site and for any signs of complications, such as fever, severe swelling, pain, and other tell-tale signs of infection. Antibiotics and pain relievers are given, even until the patient is to be discharged from the facility. Continuous follow-up check-ups with the surgeon are required to closely monitor the operation site until it is fully healed.

 

Cosmetic Surgery Cost

It is best to thoroughly discuss with your trusted cosmetic surgeon the details of the procedure and how much exactly are you to spend to from the pre-operation stage up to the follow-up visits that you are to complete after the surgery. Also, see your insurance company and discuss the scope and limitations of cosmetic surgery included in your insurance plan. Please click here to see our cosmetic surgery costs 



Opting to have cosmetic surgery is always a big decision. As you have chosen to book your surgery through Lotus Medical International you can be rest assured that your surgery will be performed by top class surgeons in a superb hospital. You can also be confident that you will receive the highest level of care.

There are some things that you can do to enhance your experience. We have put together a small list of do’s and don’ts to facilitate you during your surgery and recovery.

 Do’s – recommended by Lotus and our Top Class Surgeons:

  • Drink plenty of water to keep yourself well hydrated in the days before and after your surgery.
  • Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables in the days before and the weeks after your surgery. If at all possible eat raw foods; the nutrients that these provide can help the body to heal quicker.
  • Relax as much as possible for the days before your surgery and get plenty of sleep. We know that it is only natural to get a bit nervous but do your best to relax, you are in good hands.
  • Why not try a Thai massage the day before to help to rid your body of toxins and to help you get in to a really relaxed state before your surgery.
  • Make sure that you have a lot of loose fitting clothes with you. Your movement may be slightly restricted after surgery, depending on the type of surgery that you have, it is best to have clothes that are easy to get on and off.
  • If you are in any pain or feel sick at any time after your surgery ask for medication. Although rare this can sometimes be a side effect of the pain relief medication. If you are no longer in the hospital and you feel like you need more medication, call your Lotus Medical Representative and they will organise it for you.
  • Follow the advice that our top class surgeons have given you before surgery
  • Give yourself ample time to rest and recover after your surgery. Try to do as little as possible for as long as possible. You will be able to resume most activities within a few days but please give yourself time to rest every day.
  • Inform your flight company that you have had surgery. Flight companies like to know this information and quite often they will try to accommodate you by giving you more room on the plane and by making sure you are well looked after during your flight.
  • Ask our top class surgeons if they recommend that you take aspirin or wear flight stockings during your flight home.
  • Call your Lotus Medical Assistant if you need anything.
  • Enjoy the results and the new you!

 

Don’ts- recommended by Lotus and our Top Class Surgeons:

  • Smoke or drink alcohol for the days before and after your surgery if at all possible. Capsular contraction after Breast Augmentation Surgery is twice as common in women who smoke so if you can, try to stop in the weeks immediately before and after your surgery.
  • Many people choose to stay in a spa to help them on their road to recovery after their surgery and this is a great idea. Just be aware that any type of massage is contraindicated for a couple of weeks after surgery as it can increase the chances of blood clot formation.
  • Don’t try to do too much in the days after your surgery. It takes time for the body to heal after surgery, please listen to what your body is telling you and take time to relax; it will pay dividends in the long run.
  • Don’t fly too soon after your surgery. The major airlines recommend that you do not fly for 10 days after major surgery. We endorse this however you can fly home as soon as your stitches have been removed.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask us or our top class surgeons questions no matter how small. We have an experienced team on hand to support you before, during and after your surgery. If you have any questions, even if they may seem silly, ask either one of your medical team or your Lotus Medical assistant.

Step 4 to your cosmetic surgery holiday

Upon your arrival in Thailand, a driver will pick you from the designated meeting point at the airport and then take you to the hotel. The driver will again pick you up (usually the following morning) to take you to the hospital for your medical consultation. After your consultation you will go through medical tests to make sure that you are fit and healthy for cosmetic surgery.

After the surgery, you will stay as a patient at the hospital for the designated number of nights. When the plastic surgeon gives permission for your release, your medical host will come to meet you to help with hospital check out. Your driver will then take you back to the hotel. While still in Thailand, you will have one or two follow-up appointments with your surgeon. Your medical host will notify you of this at the appropriate times.

During your follow-up appointments, your surgeon will remove any dressings, take out any stitches, and give advice for you to follow through the recovery phase of your cosmetic surgery holiday. If at any stage after surgery you would like to see your surgeon or a nurse then just give your medical host a call on the mobile phone that we will provide. Your host will assist in arranging any additional appointments.

Transfers

At Lotus Medical we organize all of your transfers to and from the airport, hotel and hospital, have you sent us your flight and accommodation details yet? We also request a copy of your Passport to pre-register you at the airport. Make sure you have sent this to us so we can organize all of your transfers.

If you have booked your cosmetic surgery holiday in Thailand independently then you will most likely be able to use the airport transfers when you arrive. Often hotels can organize this for you, or the hospital in which you have booked your surgery with may include transfers.

Visas

When you arrive in Thailand you can get a 30 day tourist visa upon arrival. If you’re planning on staying longer then you can apply for a 60 day tourist visa before you arrive in Thailand. Visit the following webs page for more info http://www.thaiembassy.com/thailand/thailand-visa-types.php or email us and we can help advise you on what is best for you.

Medication

Are you on any types of medication for any pre-existing conditions? You need to notify your surgeon of these, simply enter this information on the online registration form you initially completed. Your surgeon will tell you if you can continue to take your medication or if you need to stop the medication at some point prior to your cosmetic surgery procedure. This will also depend on if you are having general or local anesthetic. You must also stop taking Aspirin or any vitamins 2 weeks prior to having cosmetic surgery

Fasting

You will be sent all the details you need for your cosmetic surgery trip as soon as your date is confirmed in this document you will see that you need to stop eating or drinking 8 hours prior to your appointment.

Paying for surgery

If you have booked Lotus Medical’s added support services then this fee is taken within one week of securing your surgery date. You can just pay the hospital directly for you surgery using any major credit or debit card. The hospital will also accept cash in most currencies and if you would like to pay before you arrive in Thailand then bank transfers are to be made at least two weeks before your surgery date. You should know that the final costs and surgical plan is not drawn up until you have seen the surgeon face-to-face, this is why it is a good idea to just pay the hospital on the day of your cosmetic surgery procedure.

Post-surgery compression garments

After most cosmetic procedures you will be required to wear a compression garment or support bra if having breast surgery. The hospital can provide these but we often recommend buying one prior to arriving in Thailand. We can advise you on where is best to buy these.

Your consultation

When you arrive at the hospital you will have the standard pre-surgery medical tests, these include a blood pressure measurement, a blood test, an ECG and a chest X-Ray. Additional tests may be required if you have any existing health concerns or previous conditions. Not all of these additional tests will be included in the surgery package.

Once these tests are complete you will have your face to face consultation with your surgeon. This is your chance to ask your surgeon as many questions as you need so that you fully understand the final surgical plan and for you to communicate your expected outcome. It is a good idea to do some research into the procedure so that you are more knowledgeable and realistic about the types of results you can expect from your cosmetic surgery procedure. For some surgeries even showing the surgeon some images of results that you would like to achieve. Remember though that every body is different and what might suit one person’s frame may not suit yours. You should leave your consultation feeling happy, relaxed and well informed.  Preparing your questions before hand may help to ensure you cover everything you want to know about your cosmetic surgery procedure.

 



Be prepared to be flexible

Be prepared for the specifics of your treatment plan to change after your face to face consultation with your surgeon. Although, our clients more than often are able to stick to their initial treatment plan, which was provided after a free online consultation. Our surgeons are very experienced in offering online consultations and give extremely accurate feedback. This said, the surgeon’s recommendation may not fit in with your preferences therefore a new treatment plan and quote could be drawn up on the day of your surgery. This is common for surgeries such as breast augmentation and liposuction. Often the size, shape and placement of your breast implants will be different to what you original thought you would want or need. Liposuction is sometimes not possible in the areas where you wish to have it as the surgeons may think that there is not enough fat to be removed. Our surgeons will always strive to achieve the client’s desired outcome. However, they will only perform surgeries that are suitable or safe for the client.

Follow the pre surgery advice and guidelines 

You will be asked not to eat or drink for 8 hours prior to your surgery time. You should also cease smoking or consuming alcohol, as well as taking dietary supplements, Aspirin, Ibuprofen and vitamins at two weeks prior to your surgery. If you are taking any other medications you should notify us before travelling to Phuket. This applies to all surgeries for example surgeries such as breast augmentation, tummy tuck surgery and liposuction.

Taking time off work

Your surgeon will recommend a length of stay in Phuket that is needed for you to have the surgery and recover before flying back home. You will need to request this time off from work and account for the days spent travelling to and from Phuket. You may also want to consider taking a few extra days off after returning home to continue to recover fully before returning to work. If your work involves strenuous activity, speak to your surgeon and seek advice on a recommended date to return to work.

Travelling solo?

Travelling to a foreign country alone to have surgery can seem daunting. This is why at Lotus Medical we provide you with your own English speaking medical host, who is on hand throughout your whole trip. Your medical host will meet you at the hospital for each of your appointments and check up on you the days following your surgery. You will be given a mobile phone to contact us with whilst you are staying in Phuket. We will fully support you throughout your surgical holiday so you will not feel alone. If you have any concerns after you leave the hospital and return to your hotel, we are just at the end of the phone. We will also arrange all of your transfers to and from the airport, hospital and hotel. Many clients will travel with a partner or friend but still benefit hugely from being fully supported by Lotus Medical.

Rest up

You will find you get tired easily in the days following your surgery so don’t expect to be out exploring, sightseeing and shopping. Rest is very important in recovery. Depending on which time of the year you visit Phuket the weather can be very hot and humid. Keeping your incision clean and dry is imperative to avoiding infection or a delay in the healing process. This is most important for surgeries such as liposuction of tummy tuck surgery where you may be required to wear full support garments.  It is advised to not be out in the sun for too long or to go swimming. If you would like time to explore Phuket, swim and sunbathe, do this in the days prior to your surgery.

Luggage

If you are travelling solo a small carry-on suitcase with wheels is a good idea as you will not be able to lift any heavy bags after having surgeries such as liposuction, tummy tuck and breast augmentation. Ask for help when stowing your bags on the plane.

Travel and medical insurance

When travelling abroad most people buy a travel insurance policy which insures them against things like theft, accidents and flight delays. If deciding to have medical or dental procedures overseas it can be a good idea to combine travel insurance with a type of medical insurance that insures you if having elective medical procedures overseas. Lotus Medical has looked at many of these insurance packages and can advise you on a very comprehensive package that can be tailored to your specific needs.

Take a little walk

Immediately after tummy tuck surgery you will be very tired however, your surgeon will ask you to take a walk before leaving the hospital. This will get your body moving after being horizontal for so long. It will prevent deep vein thrombosis and help to get your bowels moving. Which, can be a problem after surgery and whilst taking pain relief medication.

Follow your surgeons post tummy tuck surgery instructions

Due to the effectiveness of pain relief medication you should be feeling fine after tummy tuck surgery, this may make you feel like you can go out and do things that perhaps your body isn’t ready for. Rest up it’s not worth hindering your recovery, risking infection, causing bleeding or delaying your healing.

Advice for a quicker and successful recovery after Tummy Tuck surgery

Look after yourself

It’s always wise to follow a healthy lifestyle; if you eat right you will feel right. Before undergoing any type of surgery you should be in good physical health. Start to make healthier lifestyle changes before surgery. It is advised to not smoke or drink alcohol for at least two weeks prior to your tummy tuck surgery. To insure you are covered by our surgical guarantee you must refrain from smoking for 4 weeks prior to and 4 weeks after your surgery. You must stop drinking alcohol for 1 week prior to your surgery and for the complete post-operative period until you have finished your course of antibiotics.

Post tummy tuck surgery compression/support garments

You must wear your compression or support garments when instructed to do so by your surgeon. For tummy tuck surgery you may be advised to wear it for a couple of months so making sure you buy the correct size and a comfortable fit are important. Lotus Medical has sought out good quality garments, we can advise you on where to buy these from. Compression garments aid recovery after having tummy tuck surgery and keep swelling to a minimum; you will get better results from wearing your garment as advised by your surgeon.


Liposuction-surgery-in-Thailand.jpg

As cosmetic surgery continues to gain a wide range of prominence and popularity among people in several countries, its operational cost is not spared in anyway. In recent years, there has been a great migration from several countries in Europe and America to the East for a cheaper liposuction surgery.

Surgery as a life-changing process has now been taken very seriously by a lot of people from different countries. The growth of quality cosmetic surgeons in Thailand is one major reason why the country has rapidly become a remarkable medical tourism nation. This has led to the establishment of several reputable companies and formidable clinics that specialize in carrying out liposuction surgery.

The evolution of liposuction over the last 15 years has been drastically improved by tending to be a very safe and effective surgical process which majorly deals with the removal of excess fat deposits from designated body areas so as to improve body physique, contour and overall body appearance.

Liposuction surgery in Thailand

In Thailand, clients are allowed to make their own choices on the type of liposuction procedure they want. The cannula which is a small stainless steel suctioning instrument is often used to get the job done.

Performing liposuction surgery in Thailand is extremely safe and healthy.

Before the operation a sterile liquid is infused in to the body, this reduces the likelihood of trauma and bruising.

Then the process of excess fat removal is then started by inserting the cannula through tiny inconspicuous incisions into areas that contain excess fat. Fat is extracted either through the use of a canula or a suction pump thereby resulting into an improved and smoother body contour as an aftereffect.

Liposuction is always carried out under a general aneasthetic and patients therefore remain in hospital for one or two nights after their surgery. During recovery a compression garment must be worn to reduce the buildup of fluid at the site of surgery. There is often a small amount of bruising and swelling. The surgeons encourage patients to engage in a short walk of about 1 – 2 miles in the days after surgery. They also ask that patients are here for a full seven days after surgery for proper follow up.

Due to the experience of the surgeons traveling to Thailand to undergo a liposuction surgery can produce better results with less bruising.
