How do I get Liposuction in Thailand?

It’s simple! Click here and complete the free quote form. Once this is completed, we will discuss your options with our surgeons.

We organise your Medi-Cation, and travel packages range from 3-5 star. When you arrive in Thailand you will be met at the airport and dropped to your hotel. The following day you will be picked up and taken for your consult with the surgeon.  Your surgery usually follows the same afternoon as your consult. Your Lipo procedure will be discussed with your surgeon during the face to face and, after your pre surgical check up.

Surgery usually takes between 1-3 hours and is done under a general anaesthetic.

Following surgery you will be taken back to your private hospital room where you will spend 1-2 nights.

After your hospital stay you are dropped safely back to your hotel or apartment, where you can relax and enjoy your Medi-Cation.  7 days later you will be collected once again for a follow up with your surgeon. Your follow up appointment will be confirmed after surgery and before you leave the hospital.

You are required to stay 7-10 days in Thailand before traveling home.

FAQs about Traditional Liposuction


What is Traditional Liposuction?
Liposuction by definition is a cosmetic surgery performed to remove unwanted deposits of fat from under the skin by suction. It allows a surgeon to sculpt and contour the body by removing excess fat deposits that are resistant to reduction by diet or exercise.

Will the hospital supply compression bandages after surgery?
The hospital will supply compression bandages. You may also buy your own compression garments and take them with you.

How soon can I return to work after liposuction?
Discomfort due to surgery is temporary and most people go back to work within one week.

How do I know if I’m a good candidate for liposuction?
Keep in mind this is not a weight reduction technique. Liposuction is designed to create a better body shape. The best candidates for liposuction are people of normal weight, who have firm, elastic skin, and excess fat limited to certain areas. Age is not a major factor, however the elasticity of the skin is not usually as great in older patients and consequently the results achieved may not be as good as younger patients with tighter skin.

Is the hospital safe?
The hospital is extremely safe. Medi-Cation make sure that any hspital we use are JCI accredited.
