Liposuction, i.e. fat removal, is an aesthetic surgical procedure that was first performed in 1980 and has been continued to be performed ever since. The procedure involving the suction of excess fat with vacuum through special cannulae or specially prepared syringes is called liposuction. Liposuction is a surgical procedure performed to regulate unbalanced fat distribution in our body. This procedure is not intended for enabling the patient to lose weight, but for removing stubborn fat deposits, which have not responded to efforts despite the patient has complied with all diet and exercise rules. Thanks to liposuction, your body will be shaped. The duration of liposuction ranges from 15 to 20 minutes or from 1 to 2 hours, depending on the problem. Liposuction gives the most perfect results in those with normal weight or those who are a little overweight but uncomfortable with the bad appearance of regional fat deposition. Due to hormonal and genetic factors, fat deposition occurs in different regions in men and women. It is seen in the abdomen, hip and thigh region in women, and around the abdomen in men. These regions are intended to be reduced through weight loss by exercising and dieting. However, no significant change is seen in these regions, with the help of exercise and diet. The only way to get rid of excess fat deposits in these regions is liposuction surgery. Liposuction is applied not only to the abdomen, lower back, and hip region, but also to the neck, under-chin region, breasts, arms, legs and around the knee.
The best candidates for liposuction are those who have realistic expectations, can think healthily and can be happy with liposuction results. Candidates for liposuction should be over 18 years of age. This is the age limit determined based on legal reasons. Our surgeons will provide you with the required support in this regard. In short, any healthy person, who could not get rid of excess fat deposits despite following healthy diet and exercise programs regularly can have liposuction.
Liposuction is an extremely reliable surgical procedure and does not cause a serious risk or complication. It poses only certain risks that every surgical procedure may pose, such as nerve damage, infection, bleeding, and skin ulceration. However, the possibility of the occurrence of these is almost zero.
Local anesthetics are administered and infiltration is performed before liposuction surgery. Thus, the possibility of feeling pain is very low, compared to other surgical procedures. Even if you feel a mild pain after surgery, it can be immediately controlled with the help of daily analgesics.
The amount of fat removal through liposuction is determined by the severity of the problem, and the age and state of health of the person. In liposuction, sometimes even 300 to 500 grams of fat removal gives effective results, but in some people, the amount should be up to 12 liters. The average amount of fat removal should be between 5 and 10 liters. It is possible to remove 2-3 liters of fat from the abdominal region, 4 liters of fat from the buttocks, and about 3 liters from the lower back region. The fluid lost during the fat removal should be compensated intravenously.
Liposuction is not a surgical procedure that affects your daily life to a considerable extent. After resting in hospital for 1 day, you will have to wear the corset to be given you. You will have to wear that corset regularly for a period of one month. Since you will wear the corset regularly for one month, we can say that your recovery period takes one month. After this process, you can easily get back to your normal life. Because very small incisions will be made liposuction surgery, you will not feel any pain. Such incisions heal completely or appear as an imperceptible point. In other words, the surgery does not leave a scar on your body.
