Tumescent liposuction does great for the thighs and knees.

So I avoid laser/ultrasonic liposuction except in unusual cases.
A small cannula, microaire (pulsatile) liposuction is the standard -
see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to have it done.
If just these areas, you should be able to fly back to Europe in 3-5 days.
You should wear knee high, compression support hose, a 25 - 35 mm HG (pressure) range.
Gym workouts depend on what you do - high impact like running and jump rope - will be uncomfortable for 4 - 6 weeks. Weights are fine early on.
No advantage of laser or ultrasonically assisted liposuction over conventional.
