The method of absorbing the excess fat under the skin with the help of special cannulas, vacuum or specially prepared injectors is called liposuction. Liposuction is a surgical procedure that helps to regulate the unbalanced fat distribution in our body. The purpose of this operation is not to lose weight, but to remove stubborn fat that cannot be responded to despite all diets and exercises. Thanks to liposuction, your body will also be shaped. The duration of the liposuction operation varies between 15-20 minutes and 1-2 hours, and this time varies depending on the problem. Liposuction mostly gives the best results in people with normal weight or slightly above normal weight, but who are bothered by the bad appearance of regional fat.
Due to hormonal and genetic reasons, fat is stored in different regions in men and women. It is seen around the abdomen, hips and thighs in women, and around the abdomen in men. It is thought that these areas will be reduced by weight loss by exercising and dieting. However, there is no significant change in these regions with the help of exercise and diet. The only way to get rid of the fat in these areas is liposuction surgery. Liposuction is applied not only to the abdomen, waist and hip area, but also to the fat around the neck, under the chin, breasts, arms, legs and knees.
Can Anyone Have Liposuction?
The best candidates for liposuction are people who have realistic expectations and can think healthy and are happy with the results of liposuction. For liposuction operation, people must be over the age of 18. The reason for this is the age limit for legal reasons. Our surgeons will provide you with the necessary assistance in this regard. In short, anyone who can not get rid of healthy nutrition, diet and exercise programs regularly and does not have health problems can have liposuction.
Is there any risk in liposuction application?
Liposuction is a very safe operation and does not have any serious risks or complications.
There are risks such as nerve damage, infection, bleeding, skin ulcerations that can only be seen in every surgical procedure.
But the probability of their occurrence is very low.
Will I feel pain after the liposuction operation?
Local anesthetics and infiltration are performed before the liposuction operation. In this way, the probability of feeling pain is very low compared to other surgeries. Even if you feel a slight pain after the surgery, this pain can be controlled immediately with the help of daily painkillers.
How much fat can I remove with liposuction?
The amount of fat removal with liposuction is determined by the severity of the problem, the age and health status of the person. Sometimes even 300 to 500 grams of fat taken with liposuction gives effective results, while some people need to take up to 12 liters. On average, the oil to be taken should be between 5 and 10 liters. 2-3 liters of fat can be taken from the abdomen, 4 liters from the hips, and 3 liters from the waist. This fluid, which the person loses during the fat intake, should be given intravenously.
How long will I recover after liposuction?
Liposuction surgery is not an operation that affects your daily life too much. After resting in the hospital for 1 day, you must wear the corset given to you. You will need to use this corset regularly for about a month. Since you will use the corset regularly for a month, we can say that your recovery period is one month. After this process, you can easily continue your normal life. Since very small incisions will be made in the liposuction operation, you will not feel any pain.
These incisions heal completely or appear as a faint spot, so there is no scar on your body after the operation.
