Liposuction

Liposuction can be defined as a surgical operation that involves removing fat from under the skin with different methods to help shape a specific area of the body. Liposuction, which is designed to target and shape specific areas with regional fat deposits, can be applied to the abdomen, thighs, chest, arms, back, waist and different areas according to the patient's needs.

With the liposuction method, fat cells in the application area are permanently removed. Since the number of fat cells in the human body does not increase after puberty, there is no re-formation of fat cells in the area where liposuction is performed. However, if a balanced diet and regular exercise are not made into a lifestyle after liposuction, an increase in the volume of fat cells remaining in the area may occur. Therefore, the permanence of the results obtained with the liposuction procedure depends on the changes made in the lifestyle habits of the person.

What is Liposuction?

The procedure applied to remove stubborn fat deposits that cause deformity in the body and cannot be removed with regular diet and sports is called liposuction. Although liposuction can be applied with different techniques, the main purpose of all different techniques is to remove regional fat deposits. Liposuction, which is an effective body shaping method, should not be considered as a slimming method.

Liposuction can be applied alone for body contouring or it can be combined with different aesthetic surgery applications such as breast reduction, face lift, tummy tuck. In addition, in patients who will undergo fat injection procedure, the first step of the procedure is to remove fat from the donor area by liposuction method.

Who is Liposuction Suitable for?

Liposuction is generally applied to people who are at or close to their ideal weight and have a stable body weight, but have stubborn fat deposits in certain parts of their body that are resistant to regular diet and exercise. Liposuction can be performed on both men and women. It is preferred that the person to undergo liposuction has a good skin tone, no or very little skin looseness. In skin that has lost its elasticity, liposuction and stretching surgeries should be combined. 

How is Liposuction Performed?

The technique with which the liposuction method will be applied is determined specifically for the patient. How long the liposuction application will take may vary depending on whether it will be combined with another procedure, how many areas will be liposuctioned, the width of the application area and how much fat will be removed.

A special solution is injected into the application area. Since the area is numbed, the risk of pain and pain during the application is eliminated. 1-2 mm incisions are made to place the cannulas in the area where the fat will be removed. The cannulas suck the partially liquefied fat in the area where they are placed through the vacuum machine to which they are connected. By moving the vacuum tube on the surface, the fat in the area is broken down faster and removed quickly. After the liposuction application is completed, the incisions are left open for a while to prevent fluid accumulation and to allow the fluid to flow out. Then the incisions are closed and the procedure is completed with a tight bandage.

Recovery Process After Liposuction

The healing process after liposuction may vary individually depending on the scope of the procedure performed. After the liposuction application, compression garments should be worn for the specified period of time. Thus, it can both reduce the pain caused by the operation and contribute to the process of the body taking its new shape.

Fluid consumption should be increased in the early period following the liposuction application. In addition, calorie intake should be limited in order for the results to be permanent. It is very important not to be inactive in the early period after liposuction surgery. In this process, light brisk walking can reduce the risk of blood clot formation. However, exhausting exercises should be avoided in at least the first 4 weeks following the liposuction procedure. 

The swelling caused by the application gradually decreases in the first few weeks. Within a few months, it can be noticed that the skin begins to tighten. Generally, a period of several months is required for the results to be clearly visible. 

After liposuction, it is recommended to stop consuming alcohol, which has a blood-thinning effect. Likewise, smoking, which can prolong the healing process and increase the risk of infection, should also be discontinued.
