 [Surgical description]
 * Lipsouction - Arm, Back, Abdomen(waist), Thigh
 Liposuction removes excess fat with sound pressure or ultrasound to refine the body shape. The procedure is performed with
 a laser machine, the Ultra-Z machine, which is relatively safe compare to other liposuction machines as it helps to keep nerve
 and blood vessel damage to a minimum. During this ultrasonic liposuction, ultrasonic sound waves are used to melt or liquefy
 fat deposits so that they can be drawn out by a cannula.
 
 Firm and toned arms gives the youthful appearance. Arm liposuction is a fairly fast and effective way to achieve more
 attractive and shapely shaped arms. The procedure removes excess fat deposits under the skin. Arm is one of the areas that
 greatly benefits from liposuction. Liposuction on arms aims for 70% fat reduction without sagginess afterwards. But the rate
 can be different depends on patients condition. The incision is made below armpit or above elbow, so scars are unnoticeable.
 
 The back consists of hard and dense fat cells with abundant fibers. Thus, once accumulated, fat on the back cannot be lost
 easily. Liposuction on axilla area, on the other hand, aims to make surface of the skin smoother by removing fat and cellulite,
 with consideration of possible accessory breasts as well.
 
 Abdomen area can easily gain, but difficult to lose weight for both men and women. Abdomen is mostly a flat, broad area -
 liposuction needs be evenly performed leaving small amount of subcutaneous fat to create a smooth abdomen surface.
 Liposuction on abdomen usually makes a distinct visual difference, which satisfies most of patients. The incision is made on
 navel or along the underwear line, so scars are nearly unnoticeable.
 
 Thigh/hip that are relatively larger compared to the upper body, are not always aesthetically pleasing. Exercise and diet, in
 this case, often affect other parts of body except thigh and hip. It is important to maintain a proportional balance by removing
 fat all around the thigh from the upper hip down to the knee. Removal of cellulite keeps the skin surface smooth and
 removing fat from hips results in a longer and straighter looking lower body.
 The incision is made on inner side of thigh or under hip, so scars are unnoticeable.
 
 *Calf reduction
  Calf reduction by ive neurectomy is performed to block the nerve that controls the gastrocnemius muscle with high
 frequency radiation. The nerve is located at the back of the calf and is visible on the leg. The procedure enables the nerve to
 atrophy, therefore, decreases the volume and size of the calf.
 
  The advantages of non-incisional calf reduction are that it is a relatively fast and less invasive procedure with a quick
 recovery. Most patients are able to walk 30minutes after surgery and resume daily activities within 1-2 days. Pulling sensation
 will subside in 1-2 weeks and swelling will disappear in 3-4 weeks. In addition, it takes at least 3-6 months to see the final
 result of the surgery.
 
 [Recovery time]
  Regarding recovery period, you are recommended to stay in Korea for 7-10 days for Liposuction and calf reduction so that
 you can get post-operative treatments including stitch removal and you are required to visit the hospital two or three times for
 post-treatments.
 
  Major swelling or bruising will gradually go away in about 1-2 weeks following the day of surgery. It is going to take about a
 month for minor swelling to subside. You will see the final result at least 6 months to a year after the surgery. However, the
 degree of swelling or bruising largely depends on personal cases and conditions.
 
 Lastly, please kindly find answers to your questions below
 1. How long does the entire surgery take?
 If you would like to go for all surgeries mentioned above, it will take around 4 hours to be done.
 
 2. How long do I wear compression clothing for?
 You are recommended to wear compressive garments for 24 hours for 1 month and then you may wear only when you go to
 bed for 2-3 months.
 
 3. How many days is recommended to stay in Korea post-surgery?
 You may stay in Korea for 7-10 day to complete all post-operative treatments including stitch removal.
