Liposuction Fat Removal
LipoSelection Is the latest, third generation ULTRASONIC liposuction technique that is designed to virtually eliminate bleeding during surgery and to reduce inflammation and bruising. Ultrasound technology literally liquefies the fat, which allows for greater precision and vastly superior results. Instead of using a scalpel to remove fat, the skilled surgeons at the Naravee Aesthetic Center in Bangkok, Thailand, will use lasers to quickly and flawlessly remove the unwanted fatty tissue.
We are one of the very few clinics in Thailand to be certified in and perform the Hi-Def procedure. For a Doctor to become certified in the procedures, he/she must have successfully completed more than 300 traditional liposuction procedures. Once this has been completed, our Doctor had to travel abroad to receive hands-on training in order to become certified in procedures.
Naravee’s Doctor, Dr. Ronachai Komthong M.D. Chief Surgeon, has trained in Thailand, the United States, United Kingdom and Singapore with a host of degrees, certifications and publications under his belt. He will be there to greet you with his highly trained and fluent English speaking staff of professional Doctors and Nurses.
Naravee offers liposuction procedures that are far less expensive than the cost of surgery at home. While you are here in Bangkok, Thailand, you will receive a wide range of surgical procedures in a modern world-class, internationally accredited medical facility knowing that you are getting both the finest care and the very best value in the world.
Who is a candidate for Liposuction by Hi Def™ LipoSelection?
All candidates for liposuction should have realistic expectations of the results that can be achieved through the procedure and should be in good physical and mental health. The best candidate is someone who is in excellent health, within 25 pounds of his or her ideal body weight and has deposits of fat that have not responded to diet or exercise.
What happens at the consultation?
You should express your desires and expectations. The surgeon will evaluate your medical health and explain the surgical techniques available to you. Your questions will be answered as thoroughly as possible. Through examinations of the area to be removed will also be performed. The surgeon will go over the risks and potential complications of the procedure, as well as the pre-operative and post –operative process.
What are the risks?
All surgeries, even in world class centers in Bangkok, Thailand, carry some risks. The risks of Hi Def ® liposuction are very similar to the liposuction risks associated with any other method. However, because LipoSelection® minimizes damage to other body tissues, patients typically experience less pain and fewer side effects than with other forms of liposuction.
Serious liposuction complications are quite rare. Fat or blood clots may form and there is a chance that these will migrate to the lungs and cause serious illness. The fluid loss that results from liposuction will be anticipated by a qualified doctor as it can cause low blood pressure, friction burns, or fluid buildup. The LipoSelection® probe’s ultrasound energy may injure the skin or deeper tissues; although in most cases the benefits of the ultrasound system make it safer than traditional liposuction.
If a doctor inexperienced with the LipoSelection® procedure applies too much fluid, the wetting solution may collect in the lungs. If there is too much lidocaine in the liposuction solution, lidocaine toxicity may develop. Inexperienced doctors are not an issue at the Navaree Aesthetic Center in Bangkok, Thailand however.
What do I need to do before the surgery?
At this time, you will be given an opportunity to ask any further questions. Continuation of healthy diet and exercise is very important before the surgery. Smoking and consumption of alcohol must be stopped at least two weeks before the surgery
What do I do on the day of the operation?
No eating or drinking for 8 hours before the surgery. You should wear loose fitting clothing and sneakers. Do not wear sandals or slippers. You will meet with our nurse to prepare you for surgery. The surgeon will discuss the procedure with you again and do pre-operative planning. You will meet with our anesthesia provider to discuss anesthesia. You will be given a choice of day surgery or general anesthesia which requires one night’s stay in our clinic. However, extensive surgeries require 3-4 days rest in our excellent center in Bangkok, Thailand.
What will happen during the surgery?
First, the area to be sculpted is filled with a special saline solution that helps numb the site and shrink the blood vessels (to minimize blood loss and reduce bruising). This solution wets and fills the area to be treated, making fat easier to break up with the Hi Def System’s sound energy. Then, a small probe transmits sound energy (similar to that used for cataract removal in the eye) that breaks up fat on contact while leaving other important tissues relatively intact. Finally, gentle suction of the sculpted site removes the emulsified fat quickly. Thanks to its patented technology, only the LipoSelection procedure first emulsifies and then removes fat in this manner.
What should I expect post- operatively?
The treated area will be wrapped with compression garments snugly and continuously worn for 6-14 days. Usually, drains are placed removing excess fluid over a period of 2-3 days.
When can I get back to normal?
Regular exercise may start after 2 weeks. Start with light exercise then gradually move your way up to your regular routine as tolerated by your body.
