The best candidate for a back lipectomy is someone who is:
As with any cosmetic surgery procedure, it is important to remember that your surgery will not turn you into someone else and you should not rely on your procedure to change your life. If you are considering undergoing a procedure it is imperative you speak to someone you trust, are happy in your life and are simply seeking to enhance your appearance and confidence, rather than looking to completely change who you are. It is equally important you are psychologically ready.
It is important to discuss with your doctors and with us any:
Once you arrive at your destination you will have a physical evaluation with your surgeon, where you will discuss your goals and concerns and finalise the plan for surgery. At this examination your surgeon will determine the best procedure for you and explain it to you in detail, including any limitations. It is important that you head into surgery with realistic goals. During this examination your surgeon may also make recommendations for other procedures available to you at the same time.
In the lead-up to your surgery, it is important you do the following:
Stop smoking. Smoking can cause problems with circulation and increase the possibility of complications.
Length of surgery:
A back lift commonly takes two to three hours.
The length of surgery depends on the extent of the procedure, and commonly requires at least one night’s stay in hospital.
Recovery and post-op care:
Drains are often placed in your body and you are given compression garments to wear for support after the surgery. You are advised to take it easy for the first couple of days and you will have restricted your activity. Within two weeks you will start to progress to full activity, and most clients can return to a desk job two to three weeks after surgery. In order to give your body time to heal, it is recommended you wear some form of compression garments for six weeks after your surgery and also refrain from any heavy lifting or strenuous activity.
Length of Stay:
Most surgeons recommend staying on holiday for 10 days. During this time you will have regular check-ups. To get the most out of your recovery time we suggest you partake in gentle exercise, yoga classes and treat yourself to some pampering. If you are feeling up to it, there is plenty to see and do in Phuket, Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur.
Risks and complications are minimised by using the care and services of our highly-skilled, trusted doctors and nurses. However, with every precaution taken complications can still occur. These are rare and few patients experience any issues. If you have any concerns about your procedure and the possible preconditions and risks, please discuss them with your doctor and nurses.
Potential risks include:
Many clients get more than one procedure done to make the most of their trip. A back lipectomy is often done with other treatments, such as a tummy tuck and/or thigh lift.
