Liposuction is the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure worldwide. During this procedure, fat from the targeted area of the body – often the hips, waist, thighs or upper arms – is removed permanently using a suction catheter.
American Physicians Network (APN) helps patients find and access affordable Liposuction Surgery treatment options with surgeons who have received their country’s highest standard of certification and completed extensive training, including advanced fellowships. APN can work with you to help you understand your treatment options.
Health Travel Liposuction Surgery Options
During liposuction, the surgeon makes several very small slits in the skin. Then a saline/lidocaine solution is injected into the target area. After the solution sits in the tissue for ten to twenty minutes, the surgery begins. Different-sized long hollow tubes, or cannulas, are inserted beneath the skin and above the muscle layer. These cannulas are used to break up the adipose tissue and remove the fat using an attached suctioning canister.
Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction delivers sound waves through the cannulas to help break up fat tissue. This is for patients who have had repeated liposuction to break up scar tissue that forms during the healing process.
In Laser Liposuction, a small wire laser is placed inside a cannula that delivers a specific amount of heat energy to the area. This improves skin contraction, which is important for patients who have excessive loose skin due to recent weight loss or post-pregnancy.
How Much Does Liposuction Surgery Cost?
Liposuction Surgery costs are determined by many factors including the type of the procedure and travel costs to the location where the surgery is performed.
