5 Common Liposuction Myths

Update 16/09/2018


Liposuction is among the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedures in Thailand but it is surrounded by myths and half-truths. Below, we bust a few myths about the procedure to help give you a better overview.

Fat Will Come Back Somewhere Else

Your body’s fat cells are not evenly distributed and this certainly is the case after liposuction in Thailand. While fat cells will grow evenly individually, there are fewer fat cells where the liposuction occurred so they won’t fill out like they did before which is precisely the point. The remaining fat cells pick up the slack. As long as you maintain your weight after the procedure, the changes will be permanent. Even if you gain a lot of weight, you maintain your ‘contour’ from the liposuction procedure.

There Is An Age Limit

It is actually possible to perform liposuction in Thailand on patients in their eighties with good results. If you are in good health and are not on medication, liposuction is a possibility. While you won’t benefit from a ‘miracle procedure’, don’t shut the door on the option until you speak to a specialist.

Obese Individuals Are Prime Candidates

The best candidates are just a little bit overweight. Most surgeons will not allow you to undergo liposuction in Thailand if you are more than 30 pounds overweight. The ideal candidate is someone close to their ideal weight but with fatty deposits that stubbornly refuse to move after diet and exercise. Severely overweight individuals carry too many risks to be seriously considered.

The More Fat Removed, The Better

The reality is that removing too much fat leads to risks surgeons don’t want to deal with which is why obese people are discouraged from having the procedure. When too much fat is removed, irregularities such as lumps and bumps can become a problem. Typically, liposuction in Thailand will not involve the removal of more than 11 pounds (5 litres) of fat.

You Can Begin Exercising Immediately Afterwards

Although liposuction in Thailand is performed by specialists using advanced techniques and equipment, it is not like cleaning your teeth! You can’t expect to have the procedure on a Tuesday and be exercising or working on a Wednesday. Recovery recommendations are made on an individual basis so it could take anywhere from 2-10 days for you to recover.

Swelling may take up to 10 days to subside in any case so you’ll need to wait for this to happen before exercising again. Surgeons typically recommend avoiding strenuous activity for a minimum of two weeks as bruising will usually have disappeared by then.

In conclusion, liposuction is an excellent method of removing some excess fat and ensuring your body looks svelte and sensational. You can rely on Thai surgeons to provide you with world class treatment as they have been studying overseas and carry years of extensive cosmetic surgery experience. However, do not assume liposuction in Thailand is a magic pill; it is not for severely overweight people nor can you recover in a matter of hours.
