Liposuction (Fat Removal)


Excess fat that accumulates in certain areas of the body over time begins to create an unsightly appearance. Even diet programs and exercise do not prevent the increase in this amount of fat. For this reason, the process of removing this fat accumulated in certain areas of the body with the help of vacuum or special injectors is called Liposuction.

Over time, there is an increase in volume in the fixed fat cells in the body due to irregular eating, poor lifestyle, or not exercising. In later times, these fat cells appear as a weight problem. Even if weight is lost with diets and exercise, in some cases these fat cells protect themselves. In this case, special operations may be required to remove these accumulated fats in the body.

In Which Areas Liposuction Is Applied?

Fat accumulations occur mostly on the waist, abdomen, legs, hips, inner and outer thighs, inner arms and neck. In the fat removal method called Liposuction, fats are removed from this area using vacuums or special injections. This surgery, which lasts between 1 and 3 hours, reduces the possibility of fat formation again in this area as fat is taken from a specific area. Fat removal surgery is applied with two different methods. In the application called wet method a liquid is applied to the area before the fat removal process. In this way, blood flow is prevented. In the dry method, the fat removal process is started directly.

Up to 4.5 kilograms of fat can be removed during liposuction surgery. Depending on the patient’s condition, the patient may need to stay in hospital for 1-2 days. A corset should be used for at least 2 months after surgery. There is not much pain after application. The person can return to daily life immediately but should not engage in heavy activities for a few weeks. Swelling and shaping of the body takes up to two months.

With liposuction surgery, you can get rid of swelling and cellulite areas on your body. Be sure to consult a specialist to have this surgery.
