Liposuction is a procedure that can help sculpt
the body by removing unwanted fat from specific areas, including the
abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks and neck.
During the past decade, liposuction, which is also known as "lipoplasty" or
"suction lipectomy," has benefited from several new refinements.
number of new techniques, including ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty (UAL),
the tumescent technique, and the super-wet technique, are helping many
plastic surgeons to provide selected patients with more precise results and
quicker recovery times. Although no type of liposuction is a substitute for
dieting and exercise, liposuction can remove stubborn areas of fat that
don't respond to traditional weight-loss methods.
If you're considering liposuction, this brochure will give you a basic
understanding of the procedure -- when it can help, how it is performed and
how you might look and feel after surgery. It won't answer all of your
questions, since much depends on your individual circumstances. Please ask
your doctor if there is anything about the procedure you don't understand.
To be a good candidate for liposuction, you must have realistic expectations
about what the procedure can do for you. It's important to understand that
liposuction can enhance your appearance and self confidence, but it won't
necessarily change your looks to match your ideal or cause other people to
treat you differently. Before you decide to have surgery, think carefully
about your expectations and discuss them with your surgeon.
The best candidates for liposuction are normal-weight people with firm,
elastic skin who have pockets of excess fat in certain areas. You should be
physically healthy, psychologically stable and realistic in your
expectations. Your age is not a major consideration; however, older patients
may have diminished skin elasticity and may not achieve the same results as
a younger patient with tighter skin.
Liposuction carries greater risk for individuals with medical problems such
as diabetes, significant heart or lung disease, poor blood circulation, or
those who have recently had surgery near the area to be contoured.

Liposuction and you want to do this in Thailand. There are many hospitals
and clinics in Bangkok and other cities in Thailand who offer this
procedure. Some very expensive, some less expensive and some cheap
