Liposuction Plastic Surgery Abroad
Abroad, in Lithuania, liposuction has been shown to remove areas of fat that are inaccessible through exercise and diet. As people gain weight, each fat cell becomes larger and denser. Liposuction can reduce fat deposits in certain areas of the body. Consider traveling abroad for liposuction and body contouring. Overseas patients undergo liposuction to remove fat deposits in the abdomen, flanks and inner and outer thighs, knees, lower back, hips, and neck area.

How is liposuction performed?
With liposuction, fat is removed from specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, or neck, using a suction technique. Liposuction also contours these areas. Other common names for liposuction are lipoplasty and body contouring. Cosmetic liposuction is not generally considered as a general weight-loss method or weight loss alternative. However, if you are overweight, you are more likely to lose weight through diet and exercise or bariatric procedures such as gastric bypass surgery than through liposuction.
Although you may be a good candidate for liposuction if you have too much fat in certain areas of your body, otherwise your body weight is stable.
Why do you need liposuction Surgery?
Liposuction is used to remove fat from areas of the body that are susceptible to diet and exercise, e.g:
√ The abdomen
√ Upper arms
√ Calves and ankles
√ Chest and back
√ Hips and thighs
√ Chin and neck
√ Male breast reduction or gynecomastia
* In turn, liposuction reduces the number of fat cells in a particular area. The amount of fat removed depends on the appearance of the area and the amount of fat. The contour changes that occur are usually permanent - for as long as your weight remains stable.
* After the liposuction, the skin adapts itself to the new contours of the treated areas. With good skin tone and elasticity, it is likely that your skin will appear smooth. But if your skin is thin and has poor elasticity, the skin in the treated areas may appear loose.
* Liposuction does generally improve cellulite dimples or other irregularities in the skin surface. Neither does liposuction remove stretch marks.
*In order to undergo liposuction, you must be in good health and have no medical conditions that could complicate the operation, such as restricted circulation, coronary artery disease, diabetes or a weak immune system.
How does the Liposuction procedure look like?
During liposuction, body fat is liquefied using special equipment and removed through very small millimeter-long incisions.
The first method is the classical method, known as the "wet technique" or "tumescent liposuction". More recent methods that have been developed to achieve better results are 'Ultrasonic (Vaser) liposuction' and 'Laser liposuction (Laser lipolysis)'.
Laser liposuction is different from primary wet liposuction in that the fat is harvested after it has been broken down by a laser. Vaser liposuction breaks down this fat and then removes it from the body using ultrasonic sound waves. With the sound waves used in laser liposuction, only the fat is targeted, so the possibility of damaging other important tissues, as well as the pain, bruising, and swelling that can be seen after surgery, is minimal.
Liposuction combined with other surgeries
For patients who only need to reduce fat, liposuction alone is sufficient to achieve the desired results. However, liposuction will not cure excess skin or sagging. Liposuction can be combined with other surgical procedures (such as a tummy tuck or breast lift) in such cases. You should discuss this with your plastic surgeon, who can recommend the safest and most effective surgical treatment.
Which parts of the body can be treated with liposuction?
Liposuction, as mentioned above, is usually performed in areas of the body where fat deposits are resistant to diet and exercise. Lipoplasty is generally performed in areas such as the upper and lower abdomen, upper and lower back, flanks (love handles), arms, outer and inner thighs, and chin. Liposuction is not, however, recommended for areas where nerves are easily damaged (e.g. face, calves).
How the patient should prepare for Liposuction?
If you are considering liposuction abroad in Lithuania, the first step is a consultation.You should discuss your goals, expectations, options, risks, and benefits, or any other questions you may have, with our plastic surgeons. Your plastic surgeon can take several photographs of the areas to be treated and suggest the most appropriate treatment options for you. Your surgeon will also need to know about any medications you are taking (including over-the-counter medicines and herbal supplements) and allergies. Certain medicines, such as blood thinners or specific painkillers, should not be taken before surgery. Also, you will be advised to stop smoking for at least one month before and after liposuction, since smoking can make the healing process more difficult or even increase the risk of serious complications.
Recovery after Liposuction abroad?
1- Recovery time can range from a few days to several months, depending on the amount of fat removed. For those who have undergone liposuction, an overnight stay is necessary.
2- Patients are usually advised to get up and walk as soon as possible, all strenuous physical exercise should be avoided for up to 4 weeks. Each patient's case is individual, so the return to normal activities also varies from person to person.
3- The bruising, swelling, and soreness in the treated area is a completely normal phenomenon that may last at least a few weeks and may subside over time. The results of liposuction may take some time to settle in, usually 6 months to see an overall result. Likely scarring from liposuction is minimal as the incisions are very small. Furthermore, the appearance of the scars depends on the patient's genetic predisposition to scarring.
* It is quite normal to experience mild to moderate pain after surgery. Your surgeon may prescribe medication to relieve the pain. In addition, antibiotics may be prescribed to prevent infection. An elastic bandage and a tape or other form-fitting garment will be applied to the treatment area. The patient must also wear a compression garment for up to 8 weeks.
