What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is the use of a suction device in order to remove localized fat deposits and improve the overall aesthetic appearance of patients.
Am I a Good Candidate for Liposuction?
The following characteristics are those of an ideal candidate, but a plastic surgeon will be able to let you know if liposuction is appropriate for your unique situation.
Liposuction is particularly effective for patients whose weight is stable. With a stable weight your surgeon will be better able to target problem areas and help you achieve your aesthetic goals. Patients should be within 30% of their ideal weight. Patients outside of this range may consider bariatric surgery.
Plastic surgery is as much an art as a science and patients must realize that while they can expect an improvement in targeted areas, results will not be perfect.
Good Overall Health
Chronic conditions including restricted blood flow, coronary artery disease, diabetes, and a compromised immune system can limit healing and be contraindications for liposuction.
Tobacco use reduces the body’s ability to heal after surgery.

Procedures vary by patient and the type of procedure, but a physician will be able to fully inform you of your options.
Immediately Following Procedure
incision sites will be dressed and the treated area will be put in a compressive garment to manage swelling. Your physician will provide recovery instructions and you will be prescribed pain medications.
You will typically be able to return to work and light activities and you will notice your swelling and bruising begin to heal. 1 week following your procedure you will typically be able to fly home.
After Returning Home
We recommend that you see your healthcare provider as soon as possible after you get home. Though complications are rare, every surgery carries risk and it is important to ensure that your body is recovering properly!
Strenuous activity and heavy lifting should be avoided.
You will be able to resume your daily routine
Surgical site will be fully healed
Every surgery carries a risk of complications. Your physician will explain the risks of your specific procedure in your consultation and ensure that you are an appropriate candidate for surgery.
Medical tourism also carries specific risks including the elevated risk of blood clots forming during air travel. This risk is mitigated but not eliminated by following the appropriate recovery protocols prescribed by your physician in your destination country.
Furthermore, medical travel carries the risk of exposure to antimicrobial resistant organisms that may be less common in the United States. This risk is mitigated but not eliminated by your physicians infection prevention and control measures and medication prescribed following your procedure as appropriate.
Lastly, medical travel carries the risk that continuity of care will be disrupted. Apollo Medical Travel will help you mitigate this risk by ensuring the appropriate medical paperwork reaches your overseas provider and that your hometown physician receives the appropriate medical documentation to properly give you follow up care.
