Liposuction is the removal of localized fat deposits. This is not a weight loss procedure, rather a contouring of the body to improve appearance.
Liposuction is a very predictable and safe procedure and very positive results can be seen immediately after the procedure. Patient will experience a progressive swelling for the following 4 to 5 days and then it will go away but more detailed and definite results can be noticed after four to six months of healing when swelling has disappeared.
Lymphatic drainage massage is recommended for one month around the treated areas to reduce swelling and faster healing. The recovery stay in Costa Rica is two weeks. The drains would be removed after ten days and it is also good to allow a few extra days in CR to make sure excess lymphatic fluid is not building up.
