If you qualify for a liposuction procedure, your patient coordinator will arrange for an appointment with you and help you with the logistics of your trip.

Step 2: Procedure

Once you arrive at the clinic, your doctor will complete a pre-op medical examination. Once this is complete, you will be able to undergo your procedure in an ambulatory surgery clinic. A liposuction procedure can take 2-3 hours, and can be completed under local or general anesthesia.

Step 3: Recovery

Following your surgery, you will be able to recover at a nearby hotel. Your doctor will provide you with the necessary recovery instructions, as well as recovery garments and medications. 
The team will check on you periodically to make sure you are recovering properly and you will have a follow up exam before returning home.

After your surgery, you may experience some discomfort for 36-72 hours. Swelling is normal and will subside over time. The final results of the procedure will be visible after 6 months as your body fully recovers and swelling goes away. 
Your surgeon will provide specific instructions to you to ensure the smoothest recovery possible. 

Typical advice will cover:

  • How to care for your incisions following surgery
